Honestly, guys, January has been a blur. I mean, not because I don’t know what happened (there were some fun things), but just like… how is it a month after we sat on the couch and welcomed the new year? I have no clue. For me, this month felt short and long at the same time (if that’s possible).
LOVING | the January weather. Except for some short cold spells (and a few rainy days), we had glorious weather with sunshine and blue skies this month. I’ve really enjoyed it.
TRAVELING | to Lake Tahoe for a girls’ weekend. That was really nice. I don’t get to do girls’ weekends very often and getting to play in the snow for a little bit was delightful. As you know, I do love the snow, but I am glad I don’t have to deal with it on a daily basis during the winter months.
EXCITED | to have completed another PeloFondo weekend with my Streakers 365 team. It was so much fun to ride together as a team and work together to collect miles. My friend Sherry did a lot of the organizing, putting together a ride schedule, and making sure that everybody felt encouraged and supported.
still ENJOYING | our Christmas tree in January. I know some people put the tree away right after the holidays, but I am not one of those people.
WEARING | athleisure most days, except for Thursdays when I go to the office.
very HAPPY | that earlier this month, I finally decluttered my closet. There are probably more things I can purge, but I had two garbage bags full of stuff that could be either tossed or donated. I’ve contemplated trying to sell a few things, so I put those in a separate bag, but I am not sure if – or how – I’ll go about that.
WORKING ON | my knit sweater. I’ve already given you an update earlier this month and I can report now that I am about done with the body (working on the ribbing) and that I’ll shortly start picking up stitches for the sleeves. I am making good progress and I am happy that I am finding time to knit a few rows most evenings.
SPENDING | money on replacing necessary things. Jon and I are not frivolous shoppers, but we had to replace a few things in January. Our old (tower) fan gave out (and yes, it’s January and Jon’s using a fan – riddle me that), Jon finally needed a new wallet, we bought two new pillows, and oh, did I mention that I purchased a flight to Germany? Money well spent, if you ask me.
How was your January? Did it fly by or did it feel like it was a gazillion days long?
