Quote du jour/Hal Borland

There are two seasonal diversions that can ease the bite of any winter. One is the January thaw. The other is the seed catalogues.

  1. Hello Nan! Thank you so much for your visit and your kind comments. Serendipitously, I spent a good deal of time perusing your blog yesterday -- I discovered it on Keep the Coffee Coming (http://katry.blogspot.com/)! Talk about a small world. I'll be adding a link to your site to my sidebar, and I'll be back. :)

  2. Is it already time for your seed books? Wow! Will look forward to seeing what you choose. We've had a very cold (for us) few days. It will warm up this weekend.

  3. Thanks for coming by, Nancy. I'm so surprised you were here yesterday! I love, love, love Kat's blog. And Kay, I love how you call them, "seed books" Is that a Texan term??

  4. Nan, I concur with that sentiment. We may have a bit of a January thaw over the next few days, which is a little early but maybe there will be more than one thaw. I have received several seed catalogs already. What to buy, what to buy?!! The mind boggles! *grin*

  5. We've received at least a dozen seed catalogs already! Oh how much fun I've had deciding what to buy. My Territorial Seed Catalog is full of Post-It notes. Coincidentally one of my patients brought me in two seed packets today - peas and kale - from Territorial Seeds. I am so looking forward to spring!

  6. January thaw - we have not even had any snow yet this winter, just frost and ice.
    Enjoy perusing the seed catalogues!

  7. How true, Nan! Starting today we'll get our January thaw and I received my first seed catalogue last week. Happy new year to you! ~ ♥ Lynda

  8. Thank you all for taking the time to write, and thanks for visiting Olivia. I went over to your great blog and will be back soon.

    I have this new seed buying scheme I'll talk about sometime soon.

  9. And this week, we seem to be coming up on the January thaw!!! Around these parts, that is.

    Everyone watch out for falling snow and ice, off of roof edges!!!

  10. Yep, we are in that January thaw right now. It was up to 64 yesterday (Jan 6). Almost unreasonable weather for January. Almost a record here.

  11. Mari-Nanci, we hear it falling off the roof during the night.
    Lisa, we don't have 64 (!) but it is 34, which is just about right for the January thaw. It's a bit early, but we had such a wintry December that the weather thought it was time for a break. :<)

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
