This rain is very boring......

Well it's still raining. We have had a couple of gorgeous Maine days but not nearly enough of them. The calendar is starting to fill up and this cabin is small for entertaining. But as they say about the weather in Maine, "Wait a minute!"

Today and tomorrow are errand days and Friday, my son and I will continue to plow through the barn. I am still playing with my photos and now I want to study changing this template.

I'm roasting a chicken tonight and roasting some Brussels sprouts as well. The recipe is simple and open to additions. The Brussels sprouts are trimmed and halved. Dice some pancetta and a shallot. Place the Brussels sprouts on a baking sheet, cover with the pancetta and the shallot. Sprinkle with olive oil. Season with kosher salt and black pepper. Cover with thin slices of a lemon. Roast at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes. Check them! They need to be turned a couple of times!

They were delicious!
Hopefully toorrow will be a nicer day. I need to get outside and take some pictures!

Carol, I love the new format and the header is great! Something that I learned in my graphics traning is that darker backgrounds tend to make colorful pictures,text and other images stand out. You can also reverse out the text in blocks coloring the text a lighter color for interest. Wow!!! This is right up my alley maybe I should start a blog? Looks like you are really having a great time! Love the picutres of Long Lake and the loon! In our visit a couple of years ago with you and Jake over your birthday Dean and I so wanted to see a loon. We were able to hear them from Jacks house from the Martha Stewart suite in the evening as we read.

Have fun!
