Snow Break ... and a breath of Fresh Air!

The kids' Winter Break was last week and we snuck off for a little time in the NH mountains.

When we first arrived ... I was in this mode ... I'd rather have the SunShine and Beach!

But then look at this ... It was a pretty Stunning Day and it's nice to have us all together without X-Box and sports activities!

 A litte Country Farm Bed and Breakfast around the Corner offered some fun sites for me to photograph ... 

I love a Good Stack!  Look at the textures and colors all buried in this pile of wood!

What most see as Brown. I know you can see the details with me ... 

Gray, red, brown, orange, black, gold ... all forming a gorgeous neutral palate!

Which got me thinking about the birch's in my In-laws backyard.  Way back when, they said I could have one.

So this weekend seemed the perfect opportunity.

Don thought I was whacked ... perhaps.  But My Sweet Brother in Law was ready to amuse me!!

My Own beautiful Stack ... Ready to be packed up!

Ali was Paul's helper ... and put up with me!

Great time skiing with family ... 

And Yes, I went Right.  
At the Sign.  
Off to Conquer the Illusion!!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share our surroundings for the past few days.

Please check back in tomorrow to witness The Illusion coming to life!
