A January Christmas

I was going through some old letters and cards that were in a draw. As I was doing this of course I stopped and read a few, one really caught my attention though, from a neighbor that passed away. It was a little sad and a whole lot glad. I hadn't remembered this letter and couldn't believe my luck at finding it. She wrote, "Dear Laurie, I wanted to thank you for the brownies this past Christmas, it was so nice of you to remember me. It brought back lovely memories of days spent baking with my daughters. One thing we did was bake Christmas Cookies in January. Every January we would set a day aside and gather around to bake and talk. I started this in 1965 when Mindy was 4, and Carol was 9. We so enjoyed having a little Christmas in January that we continued to do it for many years. I do not quite remember when we stopped, but life soon got in the way, I called my girls today and we have a Christmas in January set up for next week, I have you and your lovely brownies to thank....

It's true, some where someone decided to do a poll and yup, 01/14 of any calendar year is the bluest there is, here is why they said...

1. The holiday glow is now long past
2. The days are still getting dark early
3. Most of us have given up on our New Years Resolutions

WHAT!!! They do not realize that on 01/14 we are only 3 days from the Countdowns first milestone!

Further more they do not know of MMC

Nor are they probably listening to Christmas Music still...

I think these polls and stuff give people ideas, gives 01/14 a bum rap, what has 01/14 ever done to get this rap...

Let me think on 01/14, why it was on 01/14/1914 that Henry Ford introduced the Assembly Line for the Model T and on 01/14/1987 Catfish Hunter & Billy Williams elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame...

I say 01/14 has received a bad rap!!!

At least IMO

January, no hiding from it, no escape from it.

January, yup I look all around it is January, no hiding from it, no escape from it. It was bound to come as each day of December pasted it brought us closer. So maybe I should embrace it. Now for us Northerners, it means buckling down for the rest of the winter, let winter progress to spring. But, spring is right around the corner, in fact next month the Crocus will bloom, it will push up through the frost and bloom, I have purple ones.
You know, I love this time of year too. I know, I know. The Christmas season has come to a close, and I am still trying to adjust with my decorations slowly coming down and being packed away. The house does look a little forlorn. But, I do love this time of the year because I love the build up to the season, I love the planning, the thought of a new Christmas waiting for me. I love the quite this time of year offers. It seems like the whole world is “settling in for a long winter’s nap”!!! I love hiking it is a favorite pastime for...
