1. Sitting in the dark in front of the lighted Christmas tree. And convincing my wife we don’t have to take it out at least until Presidents Day.
  2. Hard cider at the tasting room at the Rollinsford mill.
  3. Cross-country skiing. Assuming we get enough snow.
  4. My wife makes a big prime rib dinner, usually just before Great Lent begins.
  5. Oh, yes, that last martini before Lent.
  6. Crisp sunlight – and days as long as they were in October.
  7. Chuck’s sauna. Out by the farm pond.
  8. Maple syrup.
  9. Watching the birds at the feeder.
  10. Wondering about bob houses and how thick the ice is.


What do you find personally meaningful in the month of February?

Tibetan Buddhist prayer flags in the icy air.



  1. The unpredictability of the weather (and with it “mood”) yet with life popping out everywhere (even if shivering and sometimes cut short by frost) and the certain promise of sun and summer now counting down! No more January – and now we are rocking and rolling again!
