Its already the end of January!
What a great year so far. Well, except for the 20-degree weather we had here in Central Florida for several days. There was quite a bit of snow and a lot more ice more north of me. Very rare for Florida. Not once this month, but two times!
I know so many were a lot colder than we were but the cold effects so much no matter where you are. So many crops were damaged or destroyed this year by Mother Nature in the state of Florida. The tangerine trees were basically wiped out in southern Florida by Hurricane Irma and it takes 5 years for them to grow and produce well again. I’m sure our pocketbooks will feel that soon enough.
During January, I do a lot of purging and organizing. Can’t do much outside, so I use this downtime to clean things up. I have organized my closet and pantry and also made a nice area for everything I need to make tea.
Looking for soup recipes? Be sure to check out my post where I list 100 of the Very Best Soup Recipes. I also have a few soups listed with my recipes and how about Instant Pot White Beans for supper soon? An Instant Pot or Crock Pot makes cooking soups easier for a busy schedule.
I just had to show you my latest purchase. I love the new vest I got from LL Bean. It’s so cute! Even though I live in Florida, we still have several days when I need an extra layer of warmth. I love wearing this with a turtleneck or t-shirt and jeans. Oh, and it’s on sale right now!
It’s almost Valentines Day, so take a few minutes to check out our 14 Days of Love.
