January 2015!!

Back after a wonderful holiday with family and food and hilarity. Getting back into non-holiday mode has taken a little longer than I expected. But now all the decorations are put away, all the delicious foods and treats are gone and it is time to start getting things done!!

I don't know about everyone else but we have had frigid weather. Not as much snow, but terrible temps. Makes you want to curl up in a very warm cave and wait for summer!!

I used to hate January as it seemed to be such an anti-climax after the holidays, and nothing much to look forward to for a long while.  But these days, I appreciate the month more because I can take the time for planning, creating, reading, meditating without the distraction of beautiful warm weather or all kinds of events. I stopped making New Year's Resolutions a long time ago, though I do like to think about the things I should change or delete. What better time than cold blustery days to sit by the fire making lists, daydreaming or just plain thinking!

Time for some tea and perhaps a nibble of something.

The fireplace is calling me.  See ya soon! Robin.

is there a photo here??

Ha ha ha Kitties are looking comfy! I'm totally with you on January being a no distraction month. I'm always looking for an excuse to stay home by the warm fireplace and read, write, think or craft. I love hibernating.

I always feel such a letdown in January. Just finished taking the decorations down and the house looked so blah. This year I did something different though. I hung new curtains in the living room which made the change a bit easier. Glad to hear you had a nice holiday.

January is a great time to catch up on all the reading I put off because there is always something else to get done.
Oh happy day. Lookee, it's those sassy kittens. Hurray.

Happy New Year to you! Funny how modern day terms invade our language - delete - when it comes to describing our behavior. :o)

Lots of storms has passed by and the latest was really nasty. I'm so glad my neighbors cottage and garage take almost all winds coming from southwest to west and the forest the rest up to northern winds.

Some snow but it doesn't last long, this is probably the warmest winter in ages.

Have a great day!
Christer.

Happy New Year, Robin! I hope 2015 is extra-special for you and your husband after the crappy last couple of years you've had.
