January was a typical month for reading – 5 books completed, 2 on my Kindle, and I thoroughly enjoyed all of them. Having read some reviews of the third in the Divergent series I’ve decided to stop after 2 and imagine my own conclusion for the main characters.
I abandoned another book after a day when the only character I liked was killed off and I couldn’t remember which of the others were goodies and baddies.
January was productive crochet wise as I made 5 hat and scarflet sets for a local homeless charity. all constructed from rectangles so easy to make while half watching the TV – especially shows that could really be radio like most news and lots of quiz shows.
January was a month of meeting old school friends who I haven’t seen for 30+ years and then chatting for hours about then and now and points in-between. Interesting how much our outlook and values still align, even on topics I’m sure we never discussed as teenagers.
January was a month of bought flowers and bulbs in pots as the garden remained green – but not white as we had only the smallest dustings of snow.
January was a month of wearing gloves and a hat and boots when I went out. But not so cold that I didn’t want to go our for a daily walk – except on the 6 days when I had a heavy cold and lived on my sofa.
January was a month of fabulous low, golden light creating some wonderful views over the water, providing great shadows and reflections and providing plenty of camera opportunities. This is one of my favourites – the glow of the sun caught on a flock of gulls being fed by the water
