Well, I say WOOHOO we have made it to the end of January! Actually, we got more sun than I anticipated this month, but it has still been a gloomy one. We got a half inch of snow on Friday. February will start out warm here - then the bottom will drop out and it will be C O L D by next weekend, with sloppy, snowy weather coming. YUK! I guess it is all part of winter - just not the parts I like! LOL
I guess I better get the snow shovel out!
We had some pretty darn cold days this past week. The cats always amaze me. The temps are so cold, but the sun is out - and they love it! They just love sitting in the sun despite the temps.
I have had many, many cardinals back at around dusk every day. I think the other evening I counted 6 pairs. They are just so pretty. The birds have sure been liking the heated birdbath for drinking. The squirrels do to.
I see geese going over every evening as well. They sure are noisy!
Another quiet week here. I have just been blah lately. This past week would have been anniversary week for G and I (36 years). It just got me down a bit. (not looking for sympathy - it is just part of life). Reminiscing a lot this week and looking at pics. I am so grateful I can do that. I think between the holidays being over, less sunshine, cold temps, and special days - I have just allowed myself to wallow! Now it is time for another new month, and I WILL get myself and my mojo back!!!!!!!!! Time to get out the big girl panties and get with it again!

Well, there you have it. Not much going on here. How has it been in your neighborhood? Any deals or frugal finds this week?
I seemed to spend most of my time going out and visiting/feeding my kitties, watching birds and squirrels, thinking of food (LOL!), and watching some You Tube. Soooooo exiting! NOT
Give us a shout and let us know how your week was.
I hope this finds you all well and safe.
Blessings from my humble little home to you and yours.
