It’s been cold up here in the Quiet Corner, my dear budgies. Real. Cold. I just had another 200 gallons of oil delivered which cost nearly $800 dollars and barely (along with the oil still in the tank) filled the tank above the 1/2 mark. Needless to say, I’ve been keeping the house cool and have learned to value my L.L. Bean lined moccasins above most of my possessions. Those and the heated blanket which just two nights ago was turned up to ‘3.’ (This is notable as I rarely ever turn it off of ‘L’ which I’m sure stands for ‘little touch of heaven.’)
The benefit of this cold is indeed the snow and the crisp, clean air. I was out and about working with the Connecticut Audubon Society and decided I would try out my new camera at the Center in Pomfret. Here’s one of my favorite shots of the refurbished 19th-century barn that serves as their programming center.
