My favorite month

Here is the post where everyone lines up on the opposite side of the fence from me!

My favorite month (and season) of the year.

Let's here it for January everyone!!!



Louder please!

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.

No deadlines.
No deadlines.
No deadlines.
  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.)
