January Thaw

There are two seasonal diversions that can ease the bite of any winter. One is the January thaw. The other is the seed catalogues.
— Hal Borland, American Journalist

Well, I haven’t received any seed catalogs in the mail yet, but between yesterday and today I am really enjoying the January thaw! It’s currently in the low 60s and the warm weather makes me want to load some jam band music onto my ipod and go for a nice long walk, breathing in the fresh air. Of course, I’m working today so that won’t happen, but it’s a nice thought 🙂 Yesterday I cracked open the windows and aired out the house. I’m enjoying it while it’s here because I know it won’t last. According to the weather report, next week we’ll be back in the low-to-mid 30s again. But I guess if it were this lovely all the time we wouldn’t appreciate it as much.

  1. Ahh, that’s lovely. We’ve seen up to the mid 40s here, which is brill, IMO. That’s what I hated most about living in Wisconsin … those rare nice days in winter never came. Cold for months on end. Blech.

  2. We got a Burpee catalog last week!
