Tea and Toast for a Wild and Wooly Day in Maine!!

It's definitely the kind of day you need to sit by the crackling fire and avail yourself of lashings of hot tea and buttered toast!! The wind is howling and rain is beating against the tea and toast are ready and the wee puppies are slumbering peacefully by the fire. A Nor'easter is blowing wild outside and any minute now the electricity may go off so I need to get this post up pretty sharpish.
Autumn Fires by Robert Louis Stevenson
In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!

Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.

Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!
Fred and Eleanor happy as Larry by the humming wood stove....ahhhhhhh!!

 Above and below are scenes from yesterday's calm and beauty before the blow set in....I cannot resist taking pictures up into the tree branches...someone stop me please!!!

 And a view from the top of Blueberry Hill.....looking west

 A view from the front yard across the street
And another view from the top of Blueberry Hill looking "up" Down East...go figure that one out if you don't live here!!

Hope you are warm and cozy wherever you are.....and enjoy your tea and toast!
