I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference
It was almost 14 years ago that we brought Miss Hannah home from the Hospital. To be exact.......she came home on Thanksgiving Day that year. Usually we celebrate her birthday on the holiday because everyone is here, but this year Hannah asked if we could have a separate party for she and her friends.
We held Hannah's party at a small resort the next town over. The resort owners have always made their pool available to local kids for a very small fee. It is such a great place to vacation for any of you thinking of coming up to the NH mountain area. Hiking, boating, swimming, skating, skiing...it's all here. :)
Today was an incredibly beautiful day for a few hours and warm. Warm that is until a biting cold front whipped thru this afternoon. I knew that it was going to be a very cold week, so while the girls were enjoying their time in the pool, Ken and I took a stroll around the lake to enjoy what may be the last warm day for a long spell. (not to worry..the girls were being supervised)
Purity Springs sits at the end of Crystal Lake in Madison/Eaton NH. The lake at this time of year is so still and peaceful....
Those beautiful golden browns.......I love the smell of the leaves at this time of year and listening to their crunching sounds as we scuffed them along the path.
......you know that Old Man Winter and Christmas are not too far away when you catch sight of the winterberries along the lakes, and with the dramatic drop in temperature today....it's no surprise....bbrrrrr!
