Thankful Thursday – February is almost here

I am happy today because February is almost here!  I’m not one to wish time away, and you will never (hopefully) hear me say I will do something tomorrow, especially if I can do it today.  I’m very much a “today, in-the-moment” kind of person.

January is a tough month to get through.  The holiday preparations and celebrations are over, and there’s still a couple more months of winter.  We have had such a cold and kind of gray month around here.  I seem to be noticing and cherishing days that are sunny, those with completely clear blue skies – they have not been the norm lately.  When they do occur, I want to run outside and capture them with my camera!  One day last week, I stood outside watching the birds flutter around from tree to tree with a gorgeous blue sky in the background.

But then again, those sunny days tend to be even colder because they are clear and dry.

I have certainly found ways to keep busy during the month of January, with sewing, and design class, and knitting and movies, but I am thankful we only have a couple days left until February arrives.  I am ready for some fresh air, brighter, warmer days, and maybe even some snowshoeing and skiing… in between all my hobbies.

  • You are so right. Although February is rather miserable around here too. March is what I’m REALLY looking forward to (although I feel guilty about “wishing my life away” as my mom would say).

  • Boy, do I hear you! I also wish for warm sunshine this time of year!! Here’s to wishing for sunny days!
