February has arrived!

Each year I am always so happy to say goodbye to January.  It may be my least favorite month of the year.  February brings thoughts of chocolate and cherries, you can notice the days starting to get a little longer, and it means that spring is that much closer.  Not to mention it is the shortest month of the year, so I try to make sure it is very productive.  How many books can I read?  How many socks can I knit?

And will the Groundhog see his shadow tomorrow?

(image from Google, I have never been fortunate enough to capture a Groundhog enjoying some flowers!)

By the end of the month, my tax package will have been delivered to my accountant (can I get a big WOOT WOOT from the crowd?), and I will have started perusing my old garden magazines for planting ideas.  YES!

I have been feeling the need to plan a project, beyond the usual of cleaning out the basement and attic.  I saw somewhere that a woman was planning to cook one recipe from all of her cookbooks, and I think that might be a fun idea.  Right now I won't tell you how many cookbooks I own, it is rather embarrassing, but needless to say I have lots of material to work with.  So starting next week, look for a new recipe to be tried and tested each week, along with a review of the cookbook I used.  It should be fun, and perhaps a way for me to get back to regular blogging.

What does February mean to you?


  1. I'll "WOOT WOOT" when it gets here!

  2. I enjoy February, too, and now that we're at the end of it, it feels like spring is right around the corner. I love your idea about cooking one recipe out of each cookbook.

    I recently littered my dining room table with my tax stuff and oh how I dread digging into it.


Thanks for stopping by!
