Wiarton Willie has seen his shadow. Another six weeks of winter was his prediction. Seriously. Seriously? Six more weeks? Then again, what's it to him? He just heads back down his hole to his cozy little burrow and falls back asleep.
While February has started off with this harsh news it is one of my more favourite months. Chocolate is coming. Matt just turned 7 1/2 yesterday. Ema will soon be 4 1/2. Reed, their one and only cousin, will turn 1. I will spend the 18th of February remembering my grandmother when she would have celebrated her birthday. My friend, Kimber, will celebrate her birthday the same day AND welcome her husband home later this month after he returns from Iraq. February is going to prove to be a very loving and joyful month.
