January and some indoor bloomage.
Hello Passion Flower! Who knew you would do so well indoors?
The paperwhites have since shot up--before and afters would be so much more exciting. Or as exciting as indoor plants get. This is the extent of excitement lately. And I say, "fine with me." And now a word from Lake Placid, New York:
Lake Placid, NY is where we ended up in lieu of a border crossing to Canada for a little country respite in a snowy winter wonderland after New Years. And people it was colllllllllllld.
But we loved it. After a few days of 0ºF, 20ºF seemed pretty warm.
There were dog sleds on frozen Mirror Lake. And we took frozen walks followed by fireplaces, hot chawklits/toddys.
And guess which New York chick traded in her fashion booties for some cross country skis? This chick!! Me! And Jim loved it too! And guess what I learned? A very friendly Olympic town that took us by surprise in the mountains, a beautiful little inn with a fireplace, and teaching ourselves to cross-country ski was by far, one of the finest and very romantic ways to bring in the New Year. Who knew?
