a post at the end of january


helloooo, january…
from the vantage point of almost february.
you've been mostly sunny, with a hint of grey, 
but i think i'll forgive you for that,
since i had twinkle lights to burn,
and books waiting to be read,
and a cat on my lap.
and i like the way you pave the way
for valentine's day.
you're not a showy month, sandwiched in
between my two favorite holidays,
but you do your best with what you've got —
and isn't that what counts,
in the end?

Oh, look at this sweet whiskered, snuggly-bunny friend here... aaawww... So great to see you back here, Leslie, and that January is treating you good... I like January more than I used to. It's so wintry here, that is part of it... LOL! It's become a nice stepping stone into the rest of the year, so I've learned to appreciate it more. So appreciating along with you. :o) Happy Days ((LOVE & HUGS))

Lovely to hear from you. Candlelight and reading with a sweet companion dozing on your lap sounds good to me. This month has been a quiet one here having been 'snowed in' on several occasions.

Love the photos esp of your cat. I think i will put out some Valentiney decorations and bring some sun into our home. It's snowing hard and may give us 6 inches! Yikes!

I love January because we get rain and grey skies and this year, it was even cold :)
