Yesterday was rough. A stressful day “at work” while home all day with the kids. It was howling, roaring wind all day with snow squalls on and off, a high of 35F. I didn’t feel great either. One of the worst days of WFH / home schooling thus far.

I got a good night’s rest and “slept in” until 6:45, my wife’s working from home today, too, and on top of that, it’s perfectly clear and sunny out. It’s supposed to be ~50F later and I worked so much yesterday that I’m going to take some time to work on my boat later.

Waking up to this really helped my mood, too:

You can’t see from the big pic but the distant higher mountains have snow on them:

The white spot on the left is Mt. Moosilauke, which is 4,802' elevation - pretty high for New England. And it’s very white again, along with Mt. Blue (~4,500') to the north and east (right) of it.

I need to cut a few more trees for an unobstructed view that way. That’s a great stress reliever, speaking of - cutting down 50' tall trees and processing them by hand (with a chain saw, but no other equipment). Hard work and really satisfying.

Happy ... err.. Thursday!
