The best thing about retirement is that my husband and I can spend more time together.

Even though we have had an unusually mild Winter, we have spent far too much time cooped up in the house together, and as much as we love each other, we just plain get on each others’ nerves at times.
As the days begin to grow longer, I try to hold on to the fact that Spring really will come, but it still seems so far away! Our cold snap is over for now and the snow has once more been washed away by rain, but Oh! it is so grey and gloomy out there!
I made the most of the milder temperatures to take Abbie on an extra long walk this morning. She has been shortchanged the last few days as the mornings have been super cold.
Only eight days left in January, and somehow it is easier to think of Spring once we get into February. At least it is the shortest month, and in March we can begin to watch for returning Redwing Blackbirds and Robins.
