Holy Guacamole! It's February! It's the shortest month of the year! It's full of hearts, flowers, and chocolate! Ok, no more !!!! points...It's also full of birthdays...like Lincoln, and Washington....and me..(later this month) I'm pretty sure Mother Nature thinks it's April. This past weekend we had sunny skies and temps that almost hit 60de. Wow. Here's what last year looked like at this time:

Today was national hug day. It was funny to talk to my coworkers today about hugs and to find out that many don't like hugs, or folks touching them. I don't mind hugs as long as they aren't the long, drawn out, hugging on and on until it's awkward hug. When I got home from work I took Chubbs out for a walk...and a hug...and while outside I heard the familiar sound of the resident owl living here at the Pines. I've heard him..or perhaps it's a her...many times through out the year. I've even see a big white owl flying from pine tree to pine tree. A friend from work was here cutting pine boughs around Christmas time and was excited to tell me she saw a white owl in the trees. As I listened to the bird call I could tell it was coming from the Creepy Woods. Then all of a sudden it seemed much closer. I turned and looked up and lo and behold:

Don't we hear this statement many times?: "It's the little things in life that matter". Frankly, it's pretty true, especially when blogging! I was thinking of what I could put on the blog tonight and looked over my pics in the camera. There were a few "little things"..like a scene from an Alfred Hitchcock movie.

Last year on January 8th I posted about my surgical post-op visit. I noted that it was early in the morning and the temps were minus 27de....dang cold! This week started out fairly cold also, only it was a balmy 9de on Monday. The skies have been clear and a lovely blue, just like last year. Sort of a "Redo".

Happy New Year! Another blog post that's photo free...that's weird for me!. I'm sure it won't be the norm for long! I'm still in the blogging business for now so I didn't want to let January 1st slip by without a greeting. I do enjoy a fresh start don't you? Life is full of surprises..the good and the bad. Last year was a difficult one for some of my friends and some of my family made life changing decisions. My older brother moved to Georgia, near his wife's family. I have another brother who moved permanently to Florida. With another brother living in Georgia, one in Wisconsin and us in Ohio it leaves my sister as the lone sibling in Illinois. Her kiddos and grandkiddos are there and I know her and Mom will make the best of it. It's funny that I've lived in Ashland for almost 40yrs now and I still think of Chicago as my home. Can one have 2 places that say "HOME"? Ashland is certainly home too since we have kids and grandkids, friends, jobs and a life here that I've come to enjoy. Well, I'm claiming both places and find the good and the different in them and will continue to enjoy that! So let's bring on a new year shall we? Happy 20161!
