I've enjoyed my time away from blogging and I've missed you all terribly. I love to see comments pop up in my mailbox throughout the day and I've really missed that. I've popped around to see what you've been up to and to check and see if you are getting along without me - and sure enough - you held up very well.
I've had fun during my break - really relaxing after the tough year last year. I've done a lot of spring cleaning (I love the house to sparkle), planned some new projects (more about that later) and just generally slowed down and recuperated.
I took a lot of photos during January - you'll be seeing more those later on. I spent time sorting and organizing photos. Just a great month. Our weather has been typical NW Washington weather - lots of rain - some wind and plenty of clouds - with a glorious day or two of sunshine thrown in.
The daffodils are beginning to show their buds - won't be long now. The Hazel Nut trees are fat with catkins
Snow is falling on Mt. Baker - almost 30 feet (approx. 9 m) now - and more to come. The skiers are having a grand time.
Birds are everywhere - thousands of Snow Geese and hundreds of Trumpeter and Tundra Swans in the fields.
A grand month and I'm happy to be back - looking forward to your fun comments - what have you been up to in January?
Have a little fun today
