I bet you have noticed that if I cannot come up with a title that I just use the date. I am so imaginative some days.
It is mid January and we finally got a little snow..not much, but enough to cover up the brown.
We went to town..this is what it looked like traveling behind a snowplow.
We followed him at a distance almost all the way to town. You can see that the snow does not cover the grass in the ditches yet. Even with this new snow of maybe an inch there isn’t enough snow for snowmobiling.
We can usually hear the snowmobiles at night out on the trail that goes by.. but not this year. The lake hasn’t been singing at night either..on real cold nights you can hear the lake moaning and groaning..it is quiet outside at night..only Bailey barking when she hears us open the door to take Chance out.
We had 8 hours and 54 minutes of daylight yesterday. On a day like yesterday when it is dark and dreary all day long..it seems shorter.
I finally made a list. I have been doing lots of “stuff” just not the “stuff” I should be doing. Hence the list. I put it up on the bulletin board..the first thing on the list is to put Christmas completely away..the second thing is to make note of new addresses on the Christmas Cards. I pass that on to Far Guy. I sort out all the Christmas Photos and I gather all the Christmas Letters after I have read them again and staple them all together like one huge book and file it away in a folder marked Christmas letters 2011. Not sure why..perhaps they will be interesting to someone someday… and I still have room for them in one file cabinet. I can hear our daughters say “Why in the world did Mother keep all this stuff?” So perhaps I am keeping the Christmas Letters just to irritate them someday.
I decided the list was necessary..I was having way too much fun lollygagging around doing what ever I felt like since Christmas. So I am going to stick to my list for the rest of January and then take all of February off and lollygag some more:)
