Welcome to February on Peaks Island

Well, January has rolled on by and we're now into February. Of course, that means more snow, ice and windy cold but it also means we're that much closer to March, the start of my very own Spring!! One always needs mental games to survive a cold, snowy winter like this one. A couple of storms the past week but no electricity loss so all was well with a few more quiet days in the land of white and ice.

The pics for today are an utter mishmosh of collective mid Winter blahs removal; in short, I haven't quite lost it yet but I can see insanity from here. Too many meetings and not enough quiet time; more storms are needed to just put everyone in their respective "rooms" for a couple of days.

Put some gas in the vehicle today at Plante's, bought some food at Hannigan's and took a ride around the Island to charge the battery up. Of course, when doing the routine on Peaks, that's just when the magic of Peaks comes flying forth. Heading down to the backshore to look for a picture or two, my car is absolutely halted by a single line of 7 ducks waddling down the street in single file; frankly, they looked a lot like Islanders heading down Welch Street towards the 7:15 boat trying their very best to remain upright!

We also had a visitor over the weekend for a few days. Our son Josh and his lovely wife Heather had a chance to go down to Providence for a birthday party so we took on the care, feeding and laughter inducing dog of theirs, a young pug named Sophie. By the time we returned Sophie, our dog Otis (or Oddie on his bad days) was getting noticably tired of this intrusion of a wonderful bundle of energy into his space. The last pic of note was something I pulled off a food review site called RoadFood of a small breakfast joint in Portland. I loved the pic since to me it represents the very best of breakfast dining in a Maine joint. Hell, just enjoy whatever I sucessfully get uploaded. Survive the cooler temps we're all having right now and stay well.

It's fun to see your photos from the other side of the island. Love those ducks!
