On- Sort Of

January 8, 2011 by Rieshy

January, that blessed month of ho-hum and grind.  A relief after December.  We are back to school.  Back to work.  November viruses finally vanquished.  Coffee pot perking and tea pot whistling.

Time for:
  • Quiet, gray days of drizzling freezing rain.  
  • Studying.
  • Eating down the cupboards of all the odd holiday ingredients that were left unused. 
  • Music substituting for sunrises because it's still dark when the day must start. 
  • Studying.
  • Stews and soups for lunch. 
  • Ginger cookies.
  • The gym instead of freezing walks. 
  • Reading novels because it's dark by 4:30 p.m.  
  • Studying.
  • Watching Lord of the Rings, the extended version.  
  • Starting over through the Bible. 
  • Stir-crazy children leaping on furniture. 
  • Fixing furniture.
  • Studying some more.
  • Quiet hobby-ing.
  • Wondering what the neighbor's heating bill is after listening to her unit crank through the night with nary a pause.
I really like January.  I's just her sister- February- that I'm not crazy about.
