JOY To The World! Happy Winter Everyone – Tis the season to be jolly!! I am more likely to offer up some folly and fun. It’s too early. I never eat December snowflakes. I always wait until January. – Lucy van Pelt
I am not a real fan of wintertime but I do manage to keep busy and find a reason to smile. The shortest day is almost over and done (December 21 is the first day of winter and the shortest day), so we are heading into the light soon! Thank goodness for sweaters and mittens, right?
According to the Farmers Almanac (and yes I do subscribe to this old time gig) the winter forecast for 2015 will be more shivery and shovelry. The moons will be amazing this year so plan to look out and up and enjoy them -
January 15th Full Wolf Moon
February 4th Full Snow Moon
March 16th Full Worm Moon
Now is the time to get those seed, bulb, and flower catalogs out and start planning your harvest and your colors. I will be filling potholes, collecting the last of the leaves that have not been raked and making compost – cuz we all know compost happens! It is also time, if weather allows for getting out and cleaning out the terra cotta pots and saucers, and do one last gutter cleaning. And for fun and to get ready for the living to return home I will check the birdhouses and get them ready for the new renters, We offer Cheep Cheep Rents and Free Tweets in our ‘hood.
I wish you Seasons Greetings and Happy Holidays. May your gifts include Peace, Love, Health and Happy for the last of this year and the entire next one. Be well
