Words and pictures from the author of the Elizabeth Goodweather Appalachian Mysteries and the forthcoming And the Crows Took Their Eyes . . .
A whole month of the new year gone...the older I get, the faster time rushes past. I love the picture of the little kitty prints in the snow, especially since I know they can go back inside a warm house when they want to!
VickiThe days are just beginning to stretch themselves a little over here. I can't wait to feel some sunshine on my shoulders once again.
It is SO hard to believe that it's February already ... yes, time passes quickly with age, but the days are getting longer, so even with more snow in the forecast maybe spring isn't too far behind.
I love your pictures.
I love the footprints too. I have always loved footprints, they are so mysterious, aren't they.February is not my favourite month - enough said.Blessings, Star
February -- a month of hope and the occasional heartbreak. The buds swell and we hope a freeze won't get them.
I'm glad to see January pass! Just 4 more weeks and spring planting!I love March. I 've got to get busy on those bathrooms!! :) Great pics Vicki!
It’s good that it was not too much snow to stop everything. February already – my husband’s birthday is tomorrow, Ground Hog Day 2nd February. Don’t know whether I should bake him a cake or be lazy and go to the French bakery – their cakes are superior to mine. I’ll cook one of his favorite dish – which is not French but I learned it – New England corned beef dinner.
Contrary to most, I actually like January, and feel sad to see it go.
Thanks, Carol! Our planting season is a good bit farther away, alas!How lucky you are to have a French bakery nearby, Vagabonde! But I find it hard to believe anyone would choose a New England boiled dinner over French cooking! Ah, well, chacun a son gout.
Willow -I like the cozy, hibernating feel of January. But after a while, the dogs seem to be constantly underfoot and the sight of more snow no longer thrills and I'm ready to move on.
The weather has been something this January. I heard that the Farmer's Almanac predicted it. I'm thinking I should start reading their almanac.Stay warm.Sam
Hi Vicki, I've been a sluggard with blog-visiting. And then the snow and power outage that lasted two days here. I did a lot of cooking on the woodstove in the living room. Wish I could take your fiction course. I've a story coming out in the NC Literary Review, btw---and feel like an amateur. I need some "professional help" before I go any further....
Hey Sam -- Love your post on the running of the sheep! Yep, this has been some serious weather. I like to think it's put a hurting on some of the bugs that attack my garden.Kay -- A story in the NC Lit Review is pretty good, I'd say.My class is meant for folks working on novels -- short stories are another sort of beast entirely. I've written two in the past two years and am not satisfied with either.
We got a lot more snow up here than you did it looks like. Sat here today listening to the rumble of it sliding off the roof today, just like back in December. Although, it wasn't quite as loud this time.
I'm thinking of summer and warm dirt : )
Hey, Susan, Hey Tipper -- It's been a pretty yucky day -- heavy fog and slow melting. But at least it's not icy!
