The patio through a screen

The wood-splitting place

The buried house 
Ah, the blizzards of this winter! Already we have had two whoppers, the last one at least 19 inches worth.  Jaimie and I and the kids kicked up our heels a bit as we braved the cold winds and went sledding down the fast backyard slope. We also spent some good times indoors with puzzles and games and make-believe adventures with dolls and dragons. Today was a quiet day, though, with just Jaimie and I enjoying the silence surrounding the little stone house in the woods. (I did, as I usually do, about 30 minutes of wood splitting for our trustworthy stove.)
