Happy Solstice

Solstice matters here.

Today is the shortest day of our year, less than 4 hours of daylight. The sun will only ever get 2 degrees above the horizon. Tomorrow, we will get a paltry 15 seconds more of daylight.

Right now, it is blue, and where the light hits, there is a brilliant golden or pink edge to the snow. We got about 5 inches of warm, wet snow over the last day or two, so everything looks beautifully wintery and festive.

We've got a tree, one of the prettiest we've had, and we hung Christmas lights on our woodshed, and it's terribly cheerful. I've got Pandora playing holiday classics. We have no real plans for the holiday, other than hunkering down and sleeping in. That suits me just fine.

Whatever your plans, wherever you are, whichever holidays you are celebrating, may your time be full of love and light.
