2:30 p

way too much going on this morning. took out my book but not able to even open it. everyone stopped around to congratulate Ned! He’s a fan favorite there and being as outgoing as he is, he’s made friends. We’ll give it a couple weeks and we’ll stop in.

Maple Buds.

came home to see Sam sawing down the branches that came down last month. said he’ll take them down to the landfill later. They’ve rented a chipper.


3:40 p

dead tree against the sky. clouds rolling in.

hemlock cones the size of my thumbnail.

squirrels are tame already. it’s early.

goldfinch male.

beautiful day. deep blue skies punctuated by thin white clouds. mackerel sky to the south. tried adding them to my dead tree thumbnail but they just don’t read like anything except squiggles. We pulled out some chairs so we could sit in the sun for a while but Ned went in when it started to cloud up. I can’t. it’s our 1st day in the 70s. even our neighbors’s daughter is out. we’ve lived here since she was born and I probably can count the number of times I’ve seen her on one hand. never see her mom either but Ed and I talk a bit. all started when I called Ned and he answered.

there’s ice dripping off the car bumpers. the weather just hasn’t gotten any better today and now the wind is kicking up.
