Once again, I have created a very simple calendar beginning with January, 2016. I enjoy looking back over what I've done in years past, even though my calendars have gotten less colorful and far more simple over time.
Some of you may remember I spilled black ink on the page before I ever had a chance to write on it at the beginning of the month. With the help of a few stickers and a bit of creative drawing, I managed to cover up most of the problem.
The temperatures were up and down this month, with many days of ice and snow, but also many where the temps were well above freezing. For those who like to read minutia (AKA my boring life), you can enlarge the calendar.
If the weather forecasters on various local TV networks can be believed, February will come in like a lamb then on Tuesday will become a roaring lion, producing wind, freezing rain, snow, and possibly ice. Although the model keeps changing, putting me closer to the rain area than the wintry mix (which I prefer), if their predictions are true, I bet the groundhog at our zoo won't see his shadow this year. The weather looks a whole lot better for Punxsutawney Phil in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, an eastern state in the USA, where Groundhog Day is celebrated every February 2.
Thanks for stopping by. This is the only place you will see my calendar, because I am not on Flickr or Facebook where many people share their beautiful and artistic calendars. I suspect they wouldn't miss mine, anyway, since I've never seemed to be able to make mine artistic. As always, I'll decorate the page as soon as I know what is important in February.
