The Halcyon Days

Today is January 7. The Holy Days are over. The 12 days of Christmas are history. The Halcyon days have come and gone. Today we stop saying Happy New Year and we get on with the rest of this new year.
The winter winds will return and the worst winter has for us is still ahead of us. The January thaw will be followed by the February cold. Before we know it the March winds will be coming out of the south and April’s showers will fall upon us. Then after April’s showers May will show us some warmth and the flowers will return. By the end of the month I’ll be taking the hard top off of my car and turning it back into a convertible.
God I hate winter!
