The Middle of January????? Where have I been?

Well, Christmas has come and gone and here we are in the middle of January.  My Christmas was good.  I went to my sister's on Christmas eve (along with Gary)  and on Christmas we both went to Bill's sister.  This is the first Christmas in fifty some years I haven't cooked Christmas dinner.   It felt different, but I enjoyed being with family and then  Lisa's family came back from Louisiana and I stayed with them a few days....then the boys came home with me.  We had Christmas all over again.   The boys stayed until Jan 6th.  I took them back home Saturday.  Now I'm thinking about Spring.  Can't you tell by the  pictures.?  The Hyacinth came from Walmart.  It was a bud and this morning I had a good surprise when I walked in the kitchen.  The violet was given to me by Ruby from New Market.  She gave it to me when I went to visit her right before she moved to Texas.  (Hope you see this Ruby)  

     The weather here in TN today is strange.  I have had my doors open.   Our Winter has certainly been mild.  I can't help but think about Spring.
