I don’t think I have anything to say about January that hasn’t already been said, it is the slowest moving month of the year and between the lockdown and my job the pandemic fatigue really hit me super hard this month.
I did do Dry January, and it was interesting because I can normally go a couple months without having a drink without really even noticing, but I don’t know if it was because I was telling myself I couldn’t have a drink, but there were nights when I wanted a drink, and that’s not really normal for me. So I don’t know if it backfired on me a bit, but I really thought it was weird that I don’t normally crave a drink, but that there were days in Dry January that I did. But I was successful, I almost bought a bottle of wine yesterday to have tonight, but the wine and beer section of the grocery store was closed, so I didn’t.
They also have a free special exhibit on COVID-19 and masks as self-expression. Obviously this feels different now that we should all be wearing medical or N95 masks, but look at how beautiful these are. I just adore the beaded masks with the hat and earrings.
I am really looking forward to February, I can already see the days getting longer and I can’t wait to continue to see that. I moved here last year on March 15 and I really hope the weather is the same this year, because there was no snow and it was well above zero. I’m also super excited for the Hill House Home drop on the 2nd, and feeling a bit caught up financially after Christmas. Oh! And wrapping up the most painful, excruciating, and demanding work project I’ve ever experienced on the 18th. And lock down ends tonight! Not that it will change my life much, because of where I live. But it will be nice to be able to have more than 5 friends over, because someone has been left out all month.
