GOODBYE JANUARY


January is my least favorite month of the year, and I am always glad when it comes to an end. I suffer from what I call the "After Christmas Blues",  and it's a dark, cold, and just blah kind of month.

This month I was also dealing with a wonky ankle that kept me pretty much home bound the first couple weekends. Thankfully, we joined the land of Netflix earlier this month, so watching "Stranger Things" kept me pretty entertained.

Fancy K-tape work by my physiotherapist.  
Last weekend was the first time I was actually able to really enjoy a weekend all month. A girlfriend came over on Friday night and we watched a movie and had take-out. I'd also been waiting to try a Xmas gift I received from my niece, Ashlee. Harry Potter tea! I didn't want to try it alone.

We tried the Butter Beer, delicious!
 Having had Butterbeer at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, I wasn't sure what to expect with this tea. It was pretty good, and it definitely had that "butter beer" taste, though you need to add milk and a little sugar to get the sweetness of Butterbeer. Looking forward to trying the Hufflepuff (my house) Brew.

With my ankle feeling better, I was finally able to get out for a short nature walk with Rob this past Sunday.

Female Eastern Towhee
Eastern Towhee's aren't really normal to be seen around here this time of year, but this one has been around for a while, and I was happy to see her. She's a reminder that Spring is coming with all is beauty, and I can't wait.

This is the link to where Ashlee bought me the tea, https://www.teahippie.com/tea-accessories/
I couldn't find the blends on the website, so she may of only made them special for the Harry Potter day they had in Okotoks, Alberta last year.
