On Saturday, I took a quick road trip up to Marion. Violet was performing in the Tabor Academy String Ensemble winter concert.

By now it is no secret that I am smitten with the idea of eating as much local food as possible, for as long as possible.

The beautiful weather has put my Christmas spirit on hold. I cannot drag myself out of the garden to look for the outdoor lights.

Several weeks ago I wrote about a memorable sunrise viewed from the upper deck of the SSA vessel, Woods Hole. I can now top that experience.

Honestly, what’s to be said about New England weather? A week ago it was 19 degrees in the morning and this Sunday a balmy 62 degrees.

For years I hauled a rosemary plant inside in the winter, back outside in the spring. That darn thing lived for years, and I was very attached to it.
