corner view ≈ january

·
dead of winter to be born in, and it was, when i was born, many moons ago. father apparantly, dropping mother's suitcase on the stairs of the maternity hospital.

·
i came out of the ordeal and was sped home, horns blowing. through ice, and wind and snow. is this why i love whiteness in winter so much?

·
with the month of january rapidly drawing to a close, it leaves us with the prospect of february, the shortest month of the year. by far, the longest.

·
fair deuce though... enjoy this dreary january wednesday, for as long as it may last... and happy 25th to you all! ♥

ps - honestly

 while figuring this month out,
i found
in old saxon slang
january is called  
wulf-monath
i assure you   

I DID NOT KNOW

  10. How wonderful to have a month named after you! I think they make February the shortest month because otherwise we would all be crazy by March 1.

  19. so happy birthday and wulf-monath to you :)

    ps: re. my pellet stove. It gives a very nice and continous warmth. You feed it with one to two sacks of pellets a day having programmed it to 22 C during the day and 18 C during nights.
