January Musings

Breakfast - wide shot
What is it about January that inspires cleaning and paring down so much?  Maybe it's putting away all the Christmas clutter.  Whatever it is, I find myself wanting things spare and simple in January.  Each day finds me cleaning up a small corner.  This morning it was the end table.  A simple linen cloth, pots of sweet smelling spring bulbs and then a few minutes of quiet while I eat my breakfast with the lovely soundtrack from Pride & Prejudice playing in the background.  A lovely way way to start the morning!

Cranberry Walnut Petit Batard
On my way home from Colorado this past week, I stopped at Trader Joe's and brought home this lovely Cranberry Walnut Petit Batard bread.  A slice of that with my morning cup of Scottish Breakfast Tea is just perfect!

Lisa you should try the Irish Breakfast tea at Trader Joes. It is so good i bring boxes of it to florida because there is no TJ down here yet.

I must try that bread. Looks delicious.

I find myself organizing like a banshee!! And getting very reflective...and writing a lot...I like the quiet time I get in January. It's even better when it snows...

I've been reading your blog for a few years now and I always admire your spring bulbs in the middle of winter and every year I tell myself to do the same thing...and every year, I don't. There's always next year, right?

I feel peaceful just visiting here...
