I really like the idea of the wine bottle and drippy candles...a clean smooth wine bottle at the start of the year and a completely wax-encased bottle by the family dinner conversations throughout the year. Very cool. WAY better than Silly Putty (especially when mixed with hair!)



OK...something mistakenly got deleted there...

..it was supposed to say..."a clean smooth wine bottle at the start of the year and a completely wax-encased bottle at the end of the year, reminding you of all the wonderful family dinner conversations throughout the year". There. That's better!


Sounds like it was a good month, all-in-all.

I had a great January. This has been my best winter in years. I credit it with working from home. I see more of the sun and can walk the dog at 4:00 instead of the dark. Much happier for me.


We have an annual winter solstice dinner with friends. We go out and buy dozens of white candles of all sizes and light the house for the evening. We then use the candles throughout the year. We do try to have sit-down dinner time with candles, it's much more satisfactory than in front of the tv.
Also, there is a nice tradition when you serve paella, which has to rest for a bit when it comes out of the oven. You cover the pan and put it in the middle of the table; while you're waiting you go around the table and everybody tells one thing that they are grateful for from their day.


My January was surprisingly good: one of the best moments was hitting your website AS you were uploading the month's Sales and Seconds... can't wait for that package to arrive in a few days!
