Ice Sledding

We're home in New England for the holidays!  Instead of snow this year, we've had ice.  It makes for great sledding!  Check out the video at the bottom of the post.

Tumblr Picture Blog

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to let you know about a new feature on the blog.  On the left hand column there is a new link entitled "Tumblr".  This leads you to my Tumblr blog where I post pictures that I take with Barry's iPhone.  I thought about just posting them to this blog but I know some of you don't want to get notified every time I post a picture so that's why I think I'll keep them separate for now (if you would prefer that they are posted here on this blog, let me know!).  You can follow my Tumblr if you wish or just click on the link from this blog.  Cheers and Happy Holidays!

Ends and Beginnings

It's the end of blackberry season.  But also the beginning of many things; cooler weather, apples at the market, fall canning projects, sweaters and mittens (eventually....), apple pies, school....  And Margie has come to town!  Which makes me very happy indeed!  We have already had many culinary adventures together!

We've made:
Multiple thai noodle dishes :)
Roasted Tomato Soup (with cashew cream to make it vegan!)

Here's a few pictures of THE blackberry spot with Margie picking.  :)

Switzerland Day Two : Murren

The first few pictures were taken on our train ride from Bern to Interlaken.  Then you see some pictures from our bus ride up into the Alps.  Then we took a cable car up to Murren, situated on the edge of some amazing rock cliffs facing some of the most beautiful mountains I have ever seen.  We arrived in the height of spring, good for flowers but less people!  It was SO GREEN!

The rest of the pictures are from our afternoon/evening walk around Murren.  It was somewhat overcast but still incredible!

Our first view of the Eiger, covered partly in clouds.  To get a better understanding of this mountain, watch this video.

 Taken for my two Dads (Kurtz and Howe)   :)

 Beautiful wood

Vermont Wedding

This summer I played music in a lovely wedding of Emily Knott in Peacham, Vermont.  It was just wonderful :)  Good friends, good food, and nature.

The wonderful cabin we stayed at off in the mountains.  There is just something about going to bed by candlelight...
My beautiful mother! :)
Again :)
Mmmm....  Vermont and New Hampshire mountains.  You just can't beat them!
Joyful Caitlin on a tree swing :)

It's me!
Emily's lovely pond that we've heard so many stories about.

The one and only picture I got of the bride, so I had to include it :)
