It's February now


I wanted to post a picture that said "Welcome, February" but it was just too much work to go looking for one.
That tells you how I feel about February and may-be how everyone, OK may-be not everyone feels about it.  Ur always seems like these are the longest 28-29 days of the year.  If I lived in the southern hemisphere , where it would be summer in February I am sure I would feel it would be much to short a month.

I really want to say something good about February, besides it is a short month and the midpoint of winter falls during it, and if you are a fan of lovey mushy greeting card holidays,  the biggest one, Valentines Day falls pretty much midpoint of the month.

Below you will find listed some of the things you can celebrate in February. To my dismay there isn't a "Sort and order seeds for the garden" day. Or a "go into hibernation until it warms up" day.  So feel free to create your own Holiday.  the some of the ones listed look pretty good.
