    Default Winter Solstice

    I know, I'm a day early, but this was fitting. Here's to the days starting to get longer again! Happy Solstice everyone!

    My view out the back door, a few moments ago.

    Its tomorrow evening and we are celebrating it with a nice feast. Temp. is a warm 19 to 22 C and I hope it stays that way until April .

    Nice view H, can't see that many stars here, the bright lights make them "disappear"

    Brrrr...Heather. Best keep those 'chids warm! Looks like it might be a bit frosty there. I remember last year at Christmas, my nieces and nephew and I were all wearing shorts and playing in the yard.

    I think we may be headed for a much colder winter here in Arkansas this year. They are predicting snow here for later in the week. Not that you would have guessed it today. I swear it was up in the 50f.

    Anyway, stoke the fire!

    Cheers!
