What a delightful evening! The music was so beautifully played by Infusion Baroque (Sallynee Amawat on baroque violin, Alexa Raine-Wright on baroque flute, Rona Nadler on harpsichord, and Camille Paquette-Roy on baroque cello). The scenario was written by Rona and Alexa. They all blow me away with their creativity and sense of fun. Brava!

Oblivious to the frigid temperatures and snow, he sleeps on. I enjoyed walking around the square and discovering these pieces.
I was able to find the title of this one, L'Héroine d'Amérique. She stands at the corner, watching traffic go by.
I like her attitude. She stands tall against whatever she faces.
This horse looks like he took a mouthful of snow. He seems to be enjoying the weather. These are just a few of the sculptures in the square. I'll have to go back in the spring when some of the titles might be visible.

I love to sit down at the end of the day to a home cooked meal. Day-to-day cooking gets me down sometimes but I am fortunate in that my spouse and I share responsibilities. Sometimes I cook, sometimes he cooks and sometimes we cook together. Chopping, slicing, and other preparatory work doesn't feel like work when accompanied by conversation. And a few sips of wine help too ;-).

In summer there is an outdoor terasse - a delightful spot and a totally different atmosphere.
Guarding the spot where the tables once sat was this jaunty fellow. He watches carefully though I think he will be absent when we once again have a summer meal here!

Feasting is more fun with a friend.
Sometimes it's good to have a wind break along with the fur coat!

See her in summer

You may notice a few changes on the blog - I have decided to keep a record of the books I am reading this year - with a few short annotations (there is a link at the top) and this month I am participating in a Mindful Writing Challenge - taking a few moments each day to be mindful about something and write about it. Comments there are welcome too!

I just checked the weather site.
I don't think my many layers will suffice - too many layers and you can't move fast enough to stay warm! It's cozy in my home - (though I will venture out later by car to play music with friends) with a nice cup of coffee.
Wishing all my friends, both those I know face to face and those I know virtually through their photographs and words good health in 2014. May you continue to spread the warmth of your friendship!
