I miss summer!
January. The month when the grass is brown, nothing is growing, and it is cold, at least in Illinois. The holidays are over, and summer seems like a long way off. My girls have asked, "how long til summer, mom?" The answer is more than depressing. I know some people like winter, snow, ice and all. However, we are summer people. Hot sun, swimming, boating, grilling out, not to mention that it is still light out past 4 pm!
Last fall, I began redecorating my bedroom. For cheap and enjoyable decorations, I enlarged and framed black and white versions of some of my favorite photos. The criteria was that they must be summer and taken outside. They definitely cheer me up on dreary days. They are also a simple reminder of God's blessing on my life. This is the View from Baltic Drive today, if only
in my bedroom!Sandy
