Beautiful Vermont...

We have had some really nice weather lately.  The open road was calling... so we drifted north to Vermont.  We ended up in Chester and then on to Weston.  We are not skiers but we love seeing the ski trails on the mountains.  And there is no sky quite like a Vermont sky in mind-winter.

A trip to the Vermont Country Store...

 It's always so cozy inside!

I could look at the sky forever....

It was a relaxing day...
some antiquing...some dining out.

Meanwhile, back here in Connecticut, it has turned bitter cold. It is the same cold front that is chilling a great portion of  country.  Some places have a lot of snow but we just had a dusting...enough to make it clean and pretty for the moment.

Here were are more than halfway through January. It is just me or does Christmas seem long ago?  Yet, there are still many lights and decorations to remind us it was less than one month ago.

Valentine's Day... St. Patrick's Day... and Easter goods have all appeared in the stores around here... though all seem far away to me at the moment.

How is the weather treating you?  I am grateful for warmth and coziness!  Remember my pledge to draw something every day?  So far so good...

Stay warm!

Enjoy the day!
