    Beautiful Winter and Bitter Cold – Sunday Snapshots

    My thermometer read – 17°F this morning. It is a bitterly cold day that we are spending cuddled up in the warm indoors. Once the sun warms things up later, we will head out to run errands and enjoy the day. For now though, we will take in the beauty of the outdoors through windows. The brutal cold is truly beautiful though. When temperatures drop below zero, everything looks crisp and the top layer of snow seems to sparkle and shimmer in a whole new way. The winter sun and solid snow cover always make for a pretty winter scene, but there is something especially beautiful about the subzero cold.

    Winter Fun at Remich Park – Littleton NH

    Living in Northern New Hampshire, winter lasts quite a while and it is important to keep kids (and adults) engaged in outdoor winter activities. Littleton does an amazing job providing outlets for those winter activities with skiing, snowshoeing, fatbiking, sledding and ice skating all possible right in the walkable center of town. Today we went to Remich Park with the kids to enjoy the perfect town sledding hill and the ice skating rink. The sledding hill provides the perfect slope for a good long sled. There are even free tubes available for anyone to use down the hill. While we were at the park, there were quite a few other…

    Ammonoosuc River – Sunday Snapshots

    NaNoWriMo is in full swing and I have been focusing my writing on my novel this past week. The novel writing is going great, but I haven’t made much time for keeping up with my blog posts. I am dialing back my blog posts for the month of November, but I still plan to check in a few times a week. I will resume the more active blog postings in December. It has been raining a lot here lately and the river is raging. Here are some picture of the river that I took from the covered bridge on Saturday.

    Gathering of the Jack o Lanterns – Littleton NH

    I have been looking forward to the Gathering of the Jack o Lanterns in Littleton ever since I first heard about it (way before we even moved here). Unfortunately the weather was not cooperative this year. The event went on regardless of weather, but while we were celebrating we were hit with the remains of a Nor’easter, freezing rain, and hail. The wind blew out some of the candles and they weren’t able to get out to all the rocks in the middle of the river to place Jack o Lanterns, but it was still a great event. This blog is participating in the Sundays in my City link up.…

    October Snow – Sunday Snapshots

    My favorite pictures from this week are from Thursday morning, when we woke up to snow outside. The snow was a little bit of a shock since we weren’t quite ready, but both kids woke up so excited to see all the fresh fallen snow. There is something that just feels magical about a fresh snowfall. We are not quite at the time of year where the snow sticks around for the season yet, so all the snow was gone by the next day. It was a great reminder for me that I need to get my act together and clean and organize winter gear, figure out what fits and…

    The Basin – Sunday Snapshots

    Since moving up here, we’ve heard people mention the Basin. Ryan’s class even had a picnic there when a road closure prevented them from getting to their field trip destination. A few Sundays ago, we didn’t have any plans, so we went for a little drive. As we drove past the sign for the Basin (about 15 minutes from our house), we decided to stop and see what it was. Who knew we could find so much beauty for free right on the side of the highway? We didn’t even have to hike in, it was just right there for anyone to enjoy (which is good because a few of…

    Autumn Leaves – Sunday Snapshots

    It is a beautiful Columbus Day weekend here in the White Mountains. All the towns in our area are packed with leaf peepers and it seems like the leaves are cooperating. Everywhere we go there are amazing views and scenery. I am being a little lazy this Sunday and just posting some pictures that I took from my deck and backyard. I never realized how difficult it is to capture the colors of leaves. None of the pictures I took even came close to the real life vibrance. I did get a few good pictures though. This blog is participating in the Sundays in my City link up. To see…

    Music on Main Street – Sunday Snapshot

    One of my favorite things about Littleton is how they really embrace their identity as “the Glad Town”.  One of the many ways you can see this is through music.  There are colorful pianos all up and down Main Street painted with different designs saying “Be Glad. Make Music.”     For a more detailed post about Music on Main Street in Littleton, check back on Tuesday.
