Sundays in January are refreshing and relaxing. The rush of the holidays is over, the house is back in order and work is back on schedule. They are that period of time just before we begin to tap the trees and work in the woods.
I can spend a little more time in the kitchen on things like creamy potato or butternut squash soups and making homemade doughnuts. I can take a walk with the dogs and think hey the temperature’s good today……it’s 20 degrees……and actually mean it! I can watch the birds busily working at the feeders while looking through the chicken book (yes of course I need more!) and thumb through the seed catalog with pen and paper ready to make my wish list. One more cup of coffee then to fry the doughnuts, not rushed, not hurried. Life is good!
