If you haven't yet heard about Field Notes, here you are! Whether you're an habitual note writer, or a home buyer trying to keep track of all your favorite homes, you should know about Field Notes. I've been using them for several years, in my real-estate business here the Stowe, Vermont area, to help me keep track of my clients' favorite properties and related questions and todo's. Anyway, they regularly introduce new limited editions; and, this past week the new "Red Blooded" edition arrived just in time for Valentine's Day. This video will inspire you to something really different and special for your main squeeze:
My friend and colleague, Teresa Merelman, shot these yesterday. Enjoy!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27qwkFq9EK4&feature=player_embedded&w=640&h=385
This past Tuesday evening, Spruce Peak at Stowe, Stowe Mountain Resort, and Chittenden Bank hosted the Lamoille Area Board of Realtors annual holiday reception at Stowe Mountain Lodge. It was held in #506, one of the Front Four Private Residence Club 4-bedroom fractionals – a 2-story, at about 3,200 square feet, spacious home away from home! Hors d'oevres, created by Lodge executive chef Sean Buchanan, came from his Solstice kitchen included duck and salmon canapés, a tasty assortment of cheeses, and shrimp cocktail with several dipping sauces from which to choose, including simple horseradish.

I haven't worked Christmas Eve and Christmas Day since my rookie year. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed being out and about with guests as well as my fellow patrollers and other Resort staff, exchanging an abundance of Christmas greetings and cheer. And, I know that had I not been at the mountain, I would have certainly missed this spectacular peek-of-the-sun over the Worcester Range on Christmas morning. This photo doesn't begin to do justice to the beauty of being there.
West Run was closed Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I took this photo on Friday after having built this (bam)boo line across the trail's entrance -- three days of morning building and afternoon disassembling on sweep. If you're out early enough, you'll see us skiing around balancing boo, rope, and a drill!
Almost all boo lines have to be pulled at the end of the day to accommodate the groomers who begin their work after we're long gone. I get a lot of satisfaction from these outdoor-in-all-kinds-of-weather work details.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas wherever you were...
