New Year’s Eve
Happy new year! Thank you for visiting Spy Garden. On to 2019!
Even though there is a giant Christmas card in my yard…
…Thanksgiving is still to come and winter doesn’t officially begin until December 21st so still enjoying the last fall sights…
Golden leaves and golden footballs:
Last game of the 7th grade season was at UNH campus!
the very same day, he got to play in the 8th grade championship game too!
Checking out the surfers at our neighborhood beach.
Brrrr! We have not braved the water since October.
At Maine Wildlife Park where they have some rescued…
Moving reveals many lessons most involving humility (oh yeah? You think you are organized?) and realizations that you have too many belongings. When it was all said and done (and canoe, houseplants, bikes, rabbits, chickens, etc.) given away to the neighbors, all our earthly possessions fit onto a 26′ truck which Smoochie and the Spy drove across the country towing a car. Baby, Zilla and I flew and our flight was conveniently cancelled the morning of our journey. Fortunately we were comfortable at Zilla’s best friend’s house when informed of this cancellation and decided to take a flight to Boston later in the day.
From there just a short drive (less than 2 hours) to our new [rental] home in Maine!
While we were unpacking we spotted this little gardener snake and I thought, YOU have got to be kidding me with the snakes! We are the reptile whisperers, even in Maine! Our first full day we unpacked the truck and went straight to the beach…
It is very exciting to be exploring a whole new place!!
Pretty great first week in Maine!
