Instead of headphones we've been using earplugs over the Christmas period.

Excellent!  and LOL.  sure, I guess you could also look into a house boat?

Please say hello to Junior et al for me and a toast to Morvigor.

I have a very nice bottle here for Tuesday evening.

But now a major painting project is underway here!

Some of the ranges around New England include the Berkshires and the White Mountains.

I found a nice resource published by the Appalachian Mountain Club on the Whites recently:

New Hampshire - the 4,000s - AMC

Right now, I'm focused on long flat work, breaking in new boots, and getting in stride. I will work up to some of those peaks this spring.

The UK is also a favorite and I have not been here yet: Snowdonia National Park in Wales, but drove through Wales some years ago and loved it.

So, will just put one foot in front of the other {repeat ad infinitum!} and see how it goes.

Enjoy your weekend!

Whether your day was min (quiet), or max (chaotic), or minmax minmax minmax (whipsaw), Discreet Music is very nice before sleep. : )

Junior was there when he was 12 years of age. He jumped on a plane and just took off.

Enjoy the snow.

LOL. You are keeping the volume up to 11, I see.

Well, today I need to save my chi for the wild storm heading this way. :D

But two songs come to mind.

Do you know the tea-related lyrics without listening?
and
Listening to LIB now - perfect before mushing the huskies to the store for provisions!
