It's been a month so I need to record a few "maintenance"items. Got another sinus infection. Started on the right side on Sunday afternoon (Apr 8) and by Monday it was full blown accompanied by slight fever.  Called the doc and got an appt for Wed. I had improved so agreed to wait until the…

  • Sugaring in Full Swing
    March 26, 2018
    I'm feeling pretty good after getting over the sinus problem.  I got out on my skis several times this month but I've only been to the gym once. I've got a lingering sore throat (probably from allergies) but that's it. So, my energy level is back near normal. I've been spending too much time surf...

  • House Survey
    March 14, 2018
    The house survey… DO YOU LIVE IN A HOUSE OR AN APARTMENT? A house. We built our retirement home (round) in 2011 WOULD YOU SAY IT IS BIG OR SMALL? It's big but not huge. 2400 sq ft on the main floor DO YOU HAVE A WELCOME MAT? Yes DOES IT SAY SOMETHING? I had…

  • Nor’Easter #3
    March 14, 2018
    Another Nor'Easter is hitting. It's the third one in two weeks! This one has brought a foot of snow 😊. And the forecast calls for cooler temperatures to follow for the foreseeable future. That means some more excellent skiing. I thought after a Florida trip I would be longing for spring. And, I a...

  • Bourbon Barrel Aged Syrup
    March 13, 2018
    It was a late night at the sugar house last night. We didn't finish until nearly midnight. Not like the old days when boiling went on all night but long for present day sugaring.  The reason things went on so long is that the sap kept on running and running all day. The temps hit…

  • If You’re Miserable – Go All The Way
    March 10, 2018
    I finally have a little more energy and can write again. I waited out the sinus infection for 6 days (just to prove it wasn't a cold) but there was no improvement. The doctor prescribed Augmentin on Tuesday afternoon and by Friday I was able to run a few errands and go out to dinner.…

  • Sick in Bed
    March 4, 2018
    I'm fighting off a head cold/ sinus infection right now. It started a day after we returned from Florida to Vermont. I'm going to battle it with medication treating the symptoms and see if it goes away. If it persists over a week then I'll get some antibiotics. I have a long history of sinus…

  • Florida Trip Summary
    March 1, 2018
    We just got back from a wonderful trip to Florida. Lots of sunshine, beach time and relaxing in the yard under the umbrella reading. Diane wanted to hit all the thrift shops and flea markets so we did all of that. We even hit a few garage sales but didn't see anything. Diane brought an…

  • Packed for Florida
    February 13, 2018
    I just printed the boarding passes!  Our bags are nearly packed! Looks like we're headed to Florida for a couple of weeks. This is something I have wanted to do for years. This is the first year that Diane is well enough and we have the free time. We are both really looking forward to…

  • Skiing and Spending Justin’s Inheritance
    February 10, 2018
    Yesterday I got out and skied all the way to Austin Rd and back. RT about five miles. That is the furthest I've gone north on the VAST trail (Vt Association of Snow Travelers, their trail goes about a mile across our property).The conditions were perfect. Temperature was in the low twenties with ...
