January: Time to Slow Down and Look for Potential

Today was a day to take a deep breath and rest. I love January because life slows down. It is time to take stock of the last year, stay home and hibernate, and begin to look ahead to the next year and the potential it holds. It is time to read seed catalogues and plan spring planting. It is also time to get to those books sitting around during the holiday season unread. I love the beauty of winter and celebrate it by changing my Christmas tree to a Winter Tree. I love silver balls, white lights, and white snowflakes. I also love snowpeople and began collecting them years ago when students gave me unique snowmen as gifts at Christmas. They add cheerfulness sitting around the house.

"We spend January walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential." ~Ellen Goodman
