Winter Solstice

Standard

OK, I’m a day late with my Happy Solstice wishes, but I hope you are appreciating this time of the year. I really love it and I’m a bit sad that it’s over in the blink of an eye. Long nights, short days, cold weather, warm house, lots of pretty lights around the neighbourhood.

I thought I’d do a few days of “window on the weather” sort of posts. Knowing me I will forget to keep it up, but here’s Day 1 – Monday, through the pane in my kitchen door and looking over my backyard.

Monday was the first day of a vacation week for me. Of course we’re not going anywhere so I am appreciating the chance to feel like it’s a bit of a hibernation time. I started my day with some Netflix and knitting. NOT my usual practice, as those activities are usually saved for the evening. but I had nowhere to go and to add to the Let It Snow vibe it started snowing at about 8am and continued ALL DAY!

It was wet and heavy and the driveway was cleared more than once. I had my new crown fitted at the dentist in the evening and got Mr Fixit to drive me because we are on a lowest-priority road when it comes to ploughing. We made it there and back okay. It’s a short drive thankfully.

I baked two fruit cakes, one of which has already been attacked! And cleaned up the house, did some laundry, and generally had a very domestic day.

What are you doing today?
