I always feel better once we close the time out on January. Though February is still cool here, I know we’re through the worst part of winter now and on the slide toward spring and summer, my two favorite seasons of the year.
So hurray, January is over for a while again. We can look forward to Groundhog Day or Candlemas, whichever you celebrate. Both are early spring celebrations. We don’t have a long while to wait now until new green shoots appear on plants and flowers. This means more work but it’s so much better than shivering in the cold amidst brown twisted branches.
I’m always thankful the worst of winter is behind us. Soon we’ll be off making summer plans, or fulfilling some of those resolutions, if it’s been too cold to do them.
We continue to have the most beautiful sunsets. I was out running errands and rushed home to grab the camera and capture some of the colors. It was one of those evenings that started out all gold and then turned orange and pink and spread all over the sky. I never get tired of the sunsets.
I've also received a new printer from HP finally. I've been talking with them for a month about this as my printer doesn't work and it's not even a year old. So I got the new one today but haven't hooked it up yet. I wasted two hours driving to the airport and back trying to track down the places where the citizen's police academy will be held. I'd rather know ahead of time. So what a day. I got nothing accomplished.
My class starts a week from yesterday, so I’ll be posting about that soon.
