Still alive and here…January has been a doozie (sp?) and I am glad it’s over, if I do say so myself. But can we say enough about this weather? Seriously, amazing. Warm, most days in the high mid 50′s or mid 60′s and a good amount of sun. I.Love.It. I swear it is a gift from God because I’m not sure I’d have made it through January if not for this gift!
Yesterday the girls and I went after school to pick up some flowers to plant… because it was so gorgeous and warm, and we needed some flowers in our lives. They picked orange, yellow and purple violas because they ‘smelled so gooooood.’ (as compared to the only other flower available this time of year: pansy)
Anywhoo… Today is my mom’s birthday! Yes, we are ever so glad you were born. You are the most selfless person I know, are always more than willing to help, can show up with the most beautiful bouquet of flowers at the most amazing time, can make us all smile, and the kids, if given the choice would much rather live with you than me… That pretty much says it all! :)
It’s beautiful again today, maybe a high of 65 and sunny. I am in heaven. Thank you Lord! Oh, and let me add that my porch is at least 70 when the outside temp is 65. It’s glorious. I love it, it’s amazing.
Hopefully I’ll be back here in a few…and February will bring a few more quiet moments than January did… But we are alive and hanging in there… More to come.
