My favorite month (and season) of the year.
Let's here it for January everyone!!!
Ok, for you non-believers out there, here are the facts.
January is typically a "sleeper" month for most people. Time dig in and hibernate and recover from the November and December - traditionally two crazy busy months for most people. January is also a low light month and that means short days, gray days ...
So unfair to January!
January is a Great Month!
January is a new beginning, a New Year, New projects, New Goals - all shiny and, well ... New!
It is the leader month of the new year - and who doesn't like being new and the leader.
I do have a few new goals and new projects for 2014 - but more on that in another post.
Snow - there better dang well be snow this month!!
Not "spitting" snow but inches of snow - even a few feet!
Mother Nature and I have been on the outs for a few years.
Apparently January isn't her favorite month either because she forgets to send snow.
Here is your reminder, Mother Nature!
The Beach - don't knock it until you have tried it - visiting the beach in January, that is.
Think about it.
The ocean is still there - just a beautiful as ever,
all those pesky people are no where to be seen,
it is not 100 degrees outside,
and you don't have to wear a bathing suit.
Really, January at the beach is the best.
Hand knit sweaters
- you finally can wear all those sweaters that you knitted.
And those hand knit wool socks are worth their weight in gold.
Time feels like more.
After 2 months of no time in the day,
January feels like a big gaily wrapped box of extra time.
I am becoming a big fan of no deadlines.
And January never seems to have deadlines.
Now, don't you feel better about January?
OK, let's try this once again.
Let's hear it for January! A big rousing cheer!
Some of you need to re-read this post!
Happy New Year - everyone!
(And just remember it is brought to you by January.)
