We got here on Friday and have been doing very little. We did go to Mark and Heather's for a nice supper of grilled chicken on Sunday. Today we drove down to Royalston, MA to visit my sister, Marian. She raises and trains miniature horses. Below is a picture of her and a couple of her friends.
They are still living in their log cabin dream home with a dream view. It is a "pay as you go", sweat equity effort. It is still a long way from being finished, but since Eldy has a two hour commute to work, it will be a matter of years before it is finished. The place is impressive. I'll include a couple of pictures that show the scale of the logs as compared to an eight foot door.
I guess I should include a few examples of the view from the deck.
On the way back north to Brookline, NH, we saw a couple of things that may be of interest to a few our regular readers. We saw a pair of Baltimore orioles in Ashburnham, MA. In Gardner we saw the Dunn State Park.
The temperature is 69 degrees, and Durelle says, "It's friggin freezing." There is not a cloud in the sky. We had a good supper with a pork roast, and all's right with the world.
