Four Photos and Stories About What We Did in January


Running on the Beach
We've seen beautiful sunsets through the trees from our kitchen and bedroom windows. They are however much more impressive when seen from the beach. Red sky at night is a sailor’s delight, right? This saying is even mentioned in bible. Do you know where?

Small Group
Last spring, John painted the woodwork and floors on our back porch. Now he’s painting walls, woodwork and doors inside our home. Fortunately our home is on high ground so we have a dry basement which serves as a great workshop.

Winter in Rowayton has been very mild. Our first snowfall was in December, a week before Christmas - and it had all melted before New Year's Day. Now we have more snow and it’s been cold enough to freeze the Duck Pond and lots of kids are out there skating.

Autum Leaves
For the first time in 30 years, the women of Noroton Presbyterian Church in Darien did not go away for a weekend retreat. Instead 63 of them met on Zoom. Most were from Darien and Rowayton - but some joined from as far away as Indiana, Texas, North Carolina, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida, Germany and Kenya. After the two hour Zoom gathering, small groups of women met in several different locations and then enjoyed walking and talking together for a couple of hours.
