Weathersfield Weekly Blog Jan. 11


Weathersfield VT
January 11, 2017

We're almost two weeks in 2017, how are you doing? I'd say so far things are great but with a winter mix hitting us recently, a full moon Thursday and Friday the 13th hitting us in one week, I think I'll hold off judgment. I didn't make any New Year's resolutions so I cant' say that I've broken any, so that's a good thing. I am in a heated (but totally civil) FitBit challenge with a few friends for most steps during the week and most steps on the weekend. We're competitive but also encouraging and if it keeps us off the couch-YEAH for us. If you have Monday off for Martin Luther King Day, I hope you enjoy it. Stay warm, stay dry until next week.
