January is a home month, isn't it? It's quite freezing all over the USA. Yesterday my classroom hovered around 58 degrees. I didn't want to complain because when it's too hot, I don't have much zip. One girl said, "I am still a little sick, so I need to get my big jacket from my locker." The kids aren't allowed to wear their coats in class, so I wrapped her up in a quilt. Funny. I hope it is warmer today. We have quilts and comforters everywhere in our house. I'd like to be home and at school, so I could drink tea and bundle up with coziness.
Have you noticed that many people feel a little distraught in January? I'm thinking we all need some bulbs to force on our window sills, a few lambs and bunnies around to remind us of Easter, glorious Easter, and a seed catalog or two.
If we ever consider buying OURSELVES flowers, now is the time. Buy some for someone else, too. I'm sure you can spot a weary looking lamb who needs a lift. Are you dreaming of your spring and summer garden yet? Order from the friendly seed catalogs. Pay those businesses back for gifting us with such lovely flowery views, just when we need them.
I watched Downton Abbey on pbs.org. The actors looked cold. I've watched the sixth season of Doc Martin and I've noticed that the wind blows a lot on location, in Port Isaac. I wish warmth for my UK friends.
When my mom had surgery years ago, she remembers how great it felt to be covered in a heated blanket just after the operation. Wouldn't it be wonderful to cover people in that sort of warmth and comfort today? People might see you coming and think, "Here comes a warm blanket."
