Well January is here!
He came in with all the clarity & beauty a clear morning can muster (appropriate to begin a new year) and switched over quickly to the drizzly drippy grey. (January is a he in my mind, in case anyone was wondering;)
He is not beautiful, but matter of fact, no nonsense & every bit down to earth. I do need this... along with all the pretty stuff of those lighter seasons. I need the balance to all that's sweetness and bright.
But, my oh my, does it make my bed look like a comforting retreat to smooth out the rough edges.
The poor chickens in the pasture - nobody wants to go down to them.
And the hungry wood stove? We are all hard-pressed to keep it filled.
It's just soooo cold...
Oh summer where art thou?
