Of all the months, January is my least favoured… frequently cold, often dark.
Thankfully, the first half of the month this year brought unseasonably warm temps… such a blessing, especially while living under strict Covid-19 restrictions. The warm days provided an escape to the outdoors where walks with family, friends and dogs were a welcome reprieve from the lonesomeness that is the Covid reality.
The mild weather allowed for much anticipated outside play time.
Many of our walks are enjoyed in the field behind our house.
Hoar frost and fog remind us of how creative winter can be.
Playdates with Odin’s best friend, Maple, helped to break up the January monotony.
The middle of January brought colder days. Out came the winter coats and hats.
And last but never least… a little January fun! Where’s Bernie!
Happy January Happenings (may be dog related, maybe not)
** On January 6th I was blessed with a new great-grandbaby… Emilia, 7 lbs 14 oz, a sister for siblings Gabriel and Scarlett.
** On January 26th my mom, 98 years old, received the first of two Covid-19 vaccinations. Such a relief!
“JANUARY, the first month of the year, a perfect time to start all over again, changing energies and deserting old moods, new beginnings, new attitudes.”
