Clean Slate



Happy Three Astrologers Day!

The holidays are now officially over and done with. Put away the rolls of Christmas wrap, take down the tree, remove the brown and shrivelled wreaths from your front doors, puh-lease! Though I'm proud of the effort I made to enjoy the holidays this year, still, I'm relieved that they're over.

Now it's January, so ... now what? It's too early for spring cleaning, mostly too cold for long walks (though today and tomorrow in DC are supposed to be warm and lovely). What are you supposed to do in January? What does Martha Stewart do?

I've got a well-stocked netflix queue, and of course I always have a mountain of books to read, but I can't sit on my ass all month long, can I? I guess we'll see!

Walking is possible in ANY season. :)

"Here we go again" -- LOL.

What would Martha Stewart do... what wouldn't she do? Please, I would not want to spend the month cleaning and doing crafts and learning a new towel folding technique. I want to get out and have some fun!

I'm right there with ya, Reya. I've already been sitting on my ass for about the last week, and I'm SO tired of it! Time to think of some cold-weather hobbies...

Maybe for Martha Stewart, towel folding is fun. But you're right, squirrel, fun for me would not include towel folding.

The holidays are over ... let's celebrate!

Long walks through nicely heated museum galleries is always an option, though Jake probably isn't invited...however, if I had the time I would be tempted to sit through the whole month reading book after book from the mountain.

Thank goodness the decorations are coming down but there are those who linger aren't there? I say sit on your lovely ass all month long and take in the universe. You deserve it.

Congratulations for your award with Vanilla. I was visiting and I love your doggie pics!

if only people in cleveland would take down all the christmas decorations. unfortunately we can expect to see wreaths, inflatable snowmen, and tacky illuminated christmas displays from now until easter! I don't know what it is, but it is a very strange geographical phenomena!

but maybe the current spring like temperatures will fool all these foolish people and they will think it's time to take down all the ticky-tacky!

I enjoyed my holidays but I am also glad they are over and I can jump into being actively engaged again.
