A January Day

It has been so cold here the past few days.  We are inside and staying warm.  Here is a little of what's been going on.

Afternoon watercolor painting with a sprinkling of salt.  Painting is so calming and the added salt sprinkled over the wet paint makes it even more pretty.

Despite my aversion to public places during flu season, we managed to go to the library so we would have some new books to read.   My daughter often sees me sitting in the rocking chair in front of the wood stove after dinner with a magazine or knitting.  She likes to do the same with her babies when the fire is going.

Here are a few books we brought home from the library which I wanted to share.  In the book When Spring Comes, a girl remembers all of the things that will happen when spring arrives and all of the things to look forward to.  After she daydreams she focuses on the present and all of the special winter activities still to do until spring comes.

The other book we found is A Little Golden Book Collection of 9 Eloise Wilkin stories.  I just love the illustrations, they are charming and based in reality with so much detail.

The illustration alone will interest a child, just really well done!

And lastly, the January nature table is simple this month but reflects a lot of what we see outside this time of year.  Hope you are all staying warm!
