On Monday, January 29, we go back to Sarasota for Charlie's six-month check-up at Dattoli Cancer Center. We are looking forward to the warmer weather and visiting with family who live down there. We have had an exceptionally cold winter so far here in the North Carolina mountains, so it has been a good month to hibernate inside. Even though I stay on the couch all day, I can see outside through our glass door and big windows. Here are some visitors that I spied on one of the snow days.
I was really getting motivated to finish organizing my basement studio when deer season arrived, then Thanksgiving and Christmas. Had to add air beds downstairs for company and a table for a gift-wrapping station. The painting side is in pretty good shape, but not the fabric/quilting area. Maybe when we get back from Florida.
I did paint some winter scenes and a Christmas card before I got laid up.
Snowy Woods was this year's Christmas card.
Here are my last three journal pages for the Monthly Art Journal Challenge Group on Facebook. The moderator always suggests a theme for the month.
It's a little-known fact that when my husband and I ride the Gator through a dark piny section of our mountain, he often quotes lines from this beloved Robert Frost poem to me.

January: the year 2018
I have done quite a bit of Bible journaling while recuperating, and will post some of those pages next time.
Thank you to my sister-in-law Alice Turner for requesting that I start blogging again! I needed a nudge!
