We are back home after a weekend surrounded by trees, the sound of running water, birdsong, and sky.

This was our second weekend in Hardwick since we closed on the house in early January. It's only an hour and a half from where we live just outside of Boston, but when we're there, it feels like we traveled outside our lives to find a place of deep peace.

The sky was unsettled all Saturday, with weird patches of mottled gray clouds and occasional spitting rain. When we got back from dinner, it poured so hard, we couldn't convince the dogs to go out.

By bedtime, the rain ended, swift winds blew the clouds away, and there were a million stars shining down on us in the darkness of our little homestead.

Today, it was blustery and cool. We leashed up the hounds on long lines and tromped though the woods. Their little doggy noses quivered in excitement. So many new smells! We think the place gets two paws up from them.

About the only downside was that we found a half dozen ticks crawling around on Dustin. He has long hair and is low to the ground. We figure he brushed past branches where the ticks were living and they hitched a ride. We checked Mya, but she was tick free. Courtesy of short hair and longer legs.

I HATE ticks. I don't get squeamish about much - not blood, or injuries, or bugs. Except for ticks.


But, except for the ticks, it was a wonderful weekend.

Now we're back in Boston and this week I start the revision for PARALLAX, now that my beta feedback is trickling in.

Be careful out there, friends, Monday's coming.

I haven't added to this collection in a while. This one nearly made me spew my iced tea.

Meeting the new neighbors. Our property abuts the land owned by Chestnut Farms, where we have a meat share. Apparently, we sometimes get visited by wayward cows.

We're discovering all sorts of beautiful places on our land. Our land!!! I still can't really believe it.

The dogs are loving the new sniffery.

Woke up to the sound of wind and wind chimes, rushing water and my damned dogs barking at the peace and quiet of our new place in central massachusetts.


They need to get used to the country.
