Stratford Star


We went to the Stratford Star competition on Friday night. Just before the intermission, they brought out a birthday cake for one of the finalists. It had sparklers on it, which set off the fire alarms, necessitating the evacuation of the building and the arrival of the fire department, making this the birthday against which all others will be compared for the rest of her life.

Happy Birthday Livie!!!!!!

Layers and Layers of Snow

Layers of snow

The sidewalk after the plough’s been through and then more snow has fallen.

It looks a bit like an archaeological dig. Only colder.

Snow on the Roof

Don't get too close!

A mountain of snow on the roof of our train station.

The station’s been there long enough, it’s probably used to it by now.

More Redundant Signage


The fact that it’s backed by an impassable block of concrete says it far better than the sign alone ever could.

Getting Warmer

It's beautiful when it melts

After the blizzard on Saturday, we’ve hit a warming trend. High winds and lots of puddles, perfect for catching reflections.

The Weekly Breakfast Winter Won This Round Edition

 Winter Won This Round

This morning brought squalling snow and frigid temperatures.  Again.

We looked at each other and asked, “Do we really need to go to the market?”  Which, after the sheer amount of winter we’ve had this year was possibly a dangerous question.  We decided to survive the week by eating up whatever’s in the fridge.  Starting with those sausages…

The Weekly Breakfast World Nutella Day Edition

The Weekly Breakfast World Nutella Day Edition

Today is World Nutella Day.  And the best way to serve Nutella is on crepes.

And, of course, we made our own Nutella, using this recipe from David Lebovitz.

Life is sweet, indeed.  Hope you’re all enjoying a lovely, lazy weekend!
