Happy Solstice!

Welcome Winter!

Autumn didn't leave us without a fight. The weather turned ugly last night and isn't yet much improved. Over night we were drenched with rain and winds that reached 50mph for several hours, unfortunately leaving some in the dark again, before tapering off as the day has quickly gone by. I am usually sad to see Autumn go, but, this year I'm ready to leave this one behind and move on!

On this, our shortest day of the year, I'm gladly snuggled up in my favorite chair enjoying the soft twinkle of the Christmas lights, watching Doctor Who on BBC America with Hubbs, enjoying the peacefulness of it all. How are you passing this day?

Blessings to you this evening and all Winter!

It's always strange to me to think that yesterday was the official start to winter. Here there has definitely been no autumn for a while, and most years are even worse than this one. Although, until this week, we didn't have any snow. In my attempt to have a better attitude and make my life happier, I decided to be excited the closer we got to solstice. Instead of bemoaning the fact that every day was shorter, I've been counting down the days until we turn and head back the other way. Hurray, we're there! Your tree looks beautiful!

I'm glad you've been able to think differently about it so it gives you something to look forward to!
