By the first few days of January, the "Thin Ice" signs were gone.
Luther is still not that impressed with winter.

Citrus in a beautiful ceramic bowl that was a Mud Dabbers Christmas gift from my mother.

The last day of January. It's been a very cold month. The winter blues that normally come to me in March and April (when my Florida/Tennessee-raised brain says it should be warm outside) have set in very early this year. I'm attempting to cope by eating lots of citrus, and buying far too many plants for our small space. Those hyacinth flowers are perfuming the apartment air quite nicely.
We did a lot of staying indoors this month. We bought memberships to the Olbrich Botanical Gardens and the Madison Children's Museum. Our local library does weekly free events for toddlers. We ate out a fair amount (Glass Nickel Pizza, I love you). I got the shop and all it entails (this blog, social media, etc) set up for easy organization for the year. I have fun events to look forward to next month, so that should help with the blues. One day at a time.
