A great weekend spent with great friends. Birthday celebrations. A hike among the trees and newly fallen snow (which melted the following day — it was 9º yesterday!). Beautiful lookout over the white fields below. A thrilling owl sighting; this beautiful Barred Owl gazed down on us from his high perch. Silently, curiously looking from one to the next. A steam and a soak at Le Nordik. Relaxing with our books and some Fireside Martinis while Mark prepared a delectable feast of homemade pasta in carbonara sauce, followed by some rousing rounds of Boggle!
