CLOSING OUT JANUARY


The first month of 2017 is over.  It seemed so long to me.  But still I didn't get nearly enough done.  There's always something to do when you own a house.

Here's my temperature afghan.  You can see the three cold days when we were in the 20s in the gray stripe.  Then there were the two 60 degree days in the light green stripe.  But basically it was in the 40s as you can see by all of the light blue.  The dark green stripes are the 50s and the dark blue stripes are the 30s.  The white stripe is just to divide the months.

It will be interesting to see how this progresses.

One last look at our Breathtaking Views calendar page for January.

And we say goodbye to January.  I wonder what February will bring.

    1. Some people don't divide the months, just let them run into each other. I thought I would add the white stripe. Either way it's unique.

    1. Yes, that's why it's unique. Everyone who does a temperature afghan will have a different look according to what colors they choose and what their temperature is. I'm thinking of making one for 2016 since I will know all the temperatures and will be able to do it quickly.

  4. I ended my January by being sick and into Feb as well. Some virus has got me good but better today. Don't know what tomorrow will be like but probably will stay home from work again. Had jury duty on Monday and glad I didn't get picked. Maybe today I'll start my knitting project.

    1. That's what I'm thinking Vee. Reds and yellows in the middle, greens bordering that, and blues on the ends.
