Inspiration Avenue Weekly Challenge: What's Your Favorite Month?

I'll be the first to admit it, I'm bit on the odd side. That's not a bad thing, though! And having said that, it won't surprise you when I tell you that my favorite month is January.


Don't get me wrong! The Spring is so lively and bursting, full of
sweet smells and delightful breezes.
Summer is just plain hot! (my least favorite season)
Autumn is beautiful and full of the comfort of
a full harvest.


Christmas is so full of stuff! Love and Joy and Peace and busyness and stress and obligations.

And when it's all over and the tree is out in the goat pen and ornaments are all back in their boxes, the last cookie has
been eaten, then it's time to settle in.


January is peaceful. January is muffled in the soft grays of thick clouds. It is beautiful in it's brilliant snows and crystal blue skies. It's fascinating and breath taking in it's million sparkling lights on drifted snow and cold but running, twinkling streams.
