Hello February!

I think it's safe to say that for me at least, January was a horrible month.  I spent so much of it being sick - and the last part being *really* sick, the kind where reading and/or knitting is not even possible.  I had such plans to get organized, and start on a couple of household projects, and am lucky if the laundry got done ...

So, I was not really sorry for January to be over, and am happy to see February.  Unlike most people, I actually like February.  It has Valentine's Day, which is also the day we celebrate Jetsam and Pip's birthdays, it has February 2nd, which is a three-fer (Groundhog Day, St. Blaise Day, James Joyce's birthday), one of my sisters has her wedding anniversary this month, and it's a nice, compact month.  I am still not feeling great, but I feel better enough to slowly get back to my usual self, and have at least felt good enough to read.  Today I'll be back at Rosie's for the first time in several weeks, so I'll be back to knitting too.  :-)  (And I'm sure will exhaust me way more than it should.)

This evening, we'll have pizza for dinner and "watch" the Super Bowl.  That's in quotes because we usually don't watch every minute of the game, we go back and forth between that and other stuff.  We do enjoy the commercials, and if the score is close, we'll usually watch most of the fourth quarter.  We always skip the halftime show.  This year, it's extra funny for us, because we have family in Baltimore and in San Francisco, and they are having a mascots' contest dressing up their cats over on Facebook.  (And I'm sure the cats are plotting their revenge!)  I find it very appropriate that the Ravens QB is from Audubon, New Jersey.  Though admittedly, I'm likely the only one who finds that tidbit interesting.

And on that note, I shall leave you to enjoy your day, and your February, in your own way.  Here's a picture that might make you smile to end the post.

Bridget- Yeah, January was pretty much a washout. February will be better.

And some clean kitties.

I hope you stay healthy all month! and the coming months etc. It's no fun being sick if you can't even knit or read.
