January has come and gone, and we are now into the first of February. For the past four years I've followed Kate at The Kathryn Wheel (see link on my right sidebar), but since she has now gotten rid of the links on her blog, and since I'm not on Facebook or Flickr, this is the only place you will see my calendars. They are not that good anyway, so I'm not going to stress if they don't go out to the world, but stay among my friends, blog buddies, and followers.
As I showed, the temperatures raised and fell faster than night followed day. I even used that as my decoration for the month. We had record highs four times, and several near record lows during January. We went from bitterly cold to spring weather in a matter of days, twice, in fact, then back to snow and blowing just in time for the Super Bowl.
Speaking of Super Bowl, I usually have a party, invite a few friends over, and watch the commercials, eat till I waddle, and play the silly "the score at the end of each quarter" game. But I am simply not feeling well enough to feed myself, much less host a bunch of rowdy friends. So they will have to go elsewhere this year, because I've had to cancel on them.
It's also evident I'm sick, or my brain got ahead of my hand when I wrote the word "January." Pretty poor start,
so I hope to do better during February. As always, I will decorate this page as the month progresses. And in case you didn't notice, I've also simplified my calendar this year, too. No more individual dates. I just cut a calendar page and glued it to my substrate which is the really sad, albeit expensive, journal I bought last year.
Thanks for visiting, since for the first time in four years, this is the ONLY place you will see my never ending calendar pages. Enjoy the Super Bowl today if it's your "thing." You'll find me sleeping with two cats most of the day (and night).
