Winter Blues

January really shouldn't count. I mean, people are getting over the holidays, paying off credit cards, holed up inside waiting for the weather to break so they can go outside for fresh air.
Aside from it being the month in which I was born, I could write it off, and stretch out a few of the other premo months and everyone would be happy.
Jilda would beg to differ. She loves winter....bundling up in sweaters and drinking hot chocolate in front of the fire. I like that too for about 30 minutes, then I'm ready to go outside and do something.
I've got home improvements scheduled as soon as the weather breaks, but most of the carpenters I work with feel the same way about winter. "You hit your thumb with a hammer when it's 28 degrees and you'll know it," says my friend Ray. "Call me around the first of April and we'll jump right on that project."
One good thing about this time of year is that we get seed catalogs. I love seed catalogs because they remind me of summer. I'm excited about all the blueberry bushes I planted last year.
I'm hoping for a bumper crop this year.
As you may have noticed tonight, I have little to say, so I'm knocking off fo the evening.
Stay warm.
