Winter Project

Having a winter project to keep you busy

Now that its cold outside and we seem to be having a lot of snowstorms, it is good to have an indoors project to keep you busy during the winter months. You can pick a project such as building that bookcase you always wanted to or redecorate your study. Either way, while it is cold outside, you can be working on your project indoors where it is warm.

Four Seasons

The four seasons in New England

We are in the middle of winter and it is cold outside. Phil looked at his shadow and predicted six more weeks of winter. He was right, we have a long winter ahead. But in a few weeks spring will be here, the flowers will blossom, and we will forget this cold weather. That is one of the attractions of living in New England, the four seasons. Just when you think you had enough of one, another comes in. Winter gives way to spring, spring to summer, summer to fall and finally winter again. A yearly cycle that reminds us the eternal passage of time and that nothing stays the same. Read more


Ah, the joys of walking

I find that I enjoy walking for several reasons: daily exercise, fresh air, a time for thinking & planning, commune with nature, get to know my town, and lose weight. The walking bug hit me last year around June.

At about 5 in the morning, I got dressed, got my sneakers, and went out the door. I have not looked back since. That was about 8 months ago and I have lost a lot of weight. But I find that the benefits to walking are even more dramatic. My health is getting better, I can breathe a lot easier, I can exercise longer, and getting around is better. Read more

Early Morning

I’m actually a morning person who can’t wait to get up in the morning. I’m wide awake early in the morning, my mind is working 100%, and I’m jumping at the bit to go. I’m usually up at five o’clock in the morning and have a set routine that I do before the morning gets under way. I get up, do my morning toilette, put on some coffee, and plan the day. Read more


[cryout-button-dark url=”#”]Retirement, what does it mean to you?[/cryout-button-dark]

Brainard Marsh, Marion, MA

For me, retirement means been able to do the things I want to do. Activities such as: a part time job, pursuing a passion, picking-up a hobby, exercising, hiking/walking, spending time at the library, traveling to exotic locations, figuring what to do next, volunteering, and giving back to the community.
