Other than being a non-demanding month after the madness of November and December and also being my birthday month, January is the pits. Here in Wisconsin, the weather can get you down. The sun packs her bags and leaves for weeks at a time. Everywhere I look, the snow has lost its bright white color and its sparkle and has deteriorated to a dingy layer soiled with dirt and grime with wide stretches of dead grass joining in the dismal scene.
Now that we're both down in the pits, how do we get out?
