Weekly Challenge:: What's Your Favorite Month?


I'll be the first to admit it, I'm bit on the odd side. That's not a bad thing, though! And having said that, it won't surprise you when I tell you that my favorite month is January.











morning

Don't get me wrong! The Spring is so lively and bursting, full of
sweet smells and delightful breezes.
Summer is just plain hot! (my least favorite season)
Autumn is beautiful and full of the comfort of
a full harvest.

afternoon

Christmas is so full of stuff! Love and Joy and Peace and busyness and stress and obligations.

And when it's all over and the tree is out in the goat pen and ornaments are all back in their boxes, the last cookie has
been eaten, then it's time to settle in.











twilight


January is peaceful. January is muffled in the soft grays of thick clouds. It is beautiful in it's brilliant snows and crystal blue skies. It's fascinating and breath taking in it's million sparkling lights on drifted snow and cold but running, twinkling streams.

dusk

Please! Share your favorite month! Fill us with visions and words of why.

My favorite months change as I live each one, I find something special about each. Tho' if I had to choose it would be April, my birthday month and the beginning of Spring. As a gardener, there are few things more exciting than seeing the garden coming back to life!

Pam Aries said...

April !! I am an Aries so April is Awesome...spring in the Air..and All is Amazing !!

Judy Goddard said...

Hi Janita, Stephanie and Pam.

Thank you for posting.

Will you put something together that shows us why your favorite month is your favorite month?

Hmmm...I will have to think about this one, cos I am fickle as the weather! But since I am longing for spring, it might just be May...time to get creative!

My favorite month is whatever month I happen to be in at any given time!!! there is a photo op around every corner and tree, no matter the weather. Truth be told- I prefer spring!!!

I love February... I really do. I know Valentine's Day is a Hallmark Holiday, but I think it is so invigorating to get caught up in the romance of it all.. Even if it is only for a few hours one day a year, you get to direct your attentions to your spouse or special someone, and get a little spoiled yourself. I look forward to the "kid free time" and to remind each other how much we appreciate each other.. I love the vintage feel of Valentines, the nice dinner, and especially the QUIET...

Hm - good question! My first thought is either May - for the blossom and usually the first warm days of the year, or September for the glorious colours. Will have to have a proper think!

Judy - although your images are fabulous and I can see what you mean, you can keep January lol!

I think mine is october. I love the leaves changing here in the northeast and the crisp smell of the air and the hint of cold coming. I also love that its's pumpkin, apple, hayride time...

I too like January because its my birthday month ~ well today actually!! Ha ha! But I love the spring all the cold weather dying away and making new life in the garden.

So this is quite a hard decision to make, off for a think!

Here is the link to my entry:

http://wrightstory.blogspot.com/2011/01/inspiration-avenue-which-is-your.html

Trouble is, Blogger has refused all morning to load the image of my art. I'm hoping it will resolve before the end of the day. So I've written the post and will add image as soon as. Meanwhile - Judy if you'd like me to email the image so you can post on the IA blog then I can. If so, please just leave me a comment on my blog with your email as I can't seem to find your email address.

All being well, by the end of the day, the art will be added to the words about my favourite month: March!

Looking forward to everyone's entries.

Kat :-)
