Oh, It's You . . .

Well hello there January.
Where on earth did you come from.  I thought you were still December.
My, my, you brought a thick blanket with you.
Your temperature looks dreadful.

Here, let's stoke the fire and see if we can warm you up a bit.
Perhaps the smell of Six Bean Soup with ham
will comfort you while you settle in.
You are welcome old friend.
You always seem to admire our woolen sweaters and cozy quilts.
We serve hot drinks in your honor.
I know you won't be here long before your neighbor February crowds you out not to return for another year.

A very Happy New Year to you all.


  1. What beautiful photos and writing. That makes me want to move somewhere with snow. It's so beautiful. Enjoy the weather and this wonderful time of year.

  2. I guess if you have to endure it, you might as well be poetic about it! - lol - Hope your new year is a great one, LL!

  3. The perfect blog post for this new year's day! Enjoy the fire and that soup!

  4. Happy 2018 to you! Hopefully the weather in both our areas will warm up sooner than later.

  5. And a blessed new year to you and yours! ❤️

  6. Happy New Year to you! The soup sounds wonderful!

  7. Your blog is so beautiful. I love all the greens. They make it look so fairy like and meadow magical.
