wwmw as slow as molasses in january

Photobucket

I'm slow this week. I'm only just getting around to taking my Wed walk on a Thursday. But everything slows down in January...even the molasses. Is that because most of it is gone from the holiday cooking...leaving only the dregs in the bottom of the bottle to slowly make their way to the spout? Or is it due to the cold?...the cold is returning you know...

you can feel it on your fingers, and your face, it sets your cheeks to stinging. it can make a body shiver..... toes tingle.

The interval is over. I can see the cloud of my own breath again. It is January, and things are slow. Even as I walk, my pace is slow and deliberate. A slow deliberate walk through the rest of winter. I don't mind it. In fact, I'm pretty OK with it. The tide has turned, even though it does not feel like it today. We are gaining light daily. And that is good enough for me. It has to be...it's going to get cold again.

Yes it is going to get cold but they are not calling for single digits, which is a plus. I am, however, glad that we have moved from the darkside! I sure sign of increased daylight is when my ducks start laying again.

It may be cold but I'd be ready to take a walk with you any time in January. Each season, each month, has it's own beauty.

to me, there's a peacefulness and quietness about the cold weather that is very calming. beautiful photos. :)

I really love walks in the cold. Well, cold but not bitter. We had dinner at a friend's house last night and walked home. It was perhaps 16, and breezy. That was a bit chilly! Anyway, I too am slow this time of year. It's hard to know where the time goes. Naps are tempting and the bright winter sun shining through the windows makes for fun warm patches on the couch!

As always, your photography is lovely!
