Heading for the Club House today?

I found an interesting piece of history when I was doing some research online (when I should have been working or Spring cleaning)

American Woman's Realty Corporation, was formed by the American Woman's Association, Inc., for the purpose of financing the construction of a club/house for working women.
Spring Clean?....or head for the Club House today?... Tough choices.

"The Lovers, the Dreamers, and Me", in Acadia

"That beautiful season...Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood."-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

FYI: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was born in Portland, Maine, in 1807. He was a commanding figure in the cultural life of early Americans and became a national literary figure by the 1850s, and a world- famous personality by the time of his death in 1882.

The lake is still frozen, the woods covered with snow

Only a few more days before the Maine lakes will no longer be frozen,
and the woods no longer covered with snow....

"Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening"
Whose woods these are I think I know.

His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer

To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake

The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.

But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
