winter solstice



today is the day that the tide turns and we move away from the oppressive darkness back towards the light time. we had a little ceremony, lighting a candle next to hyacinths and our odin's eyeballs in order to help us look forward towards spring. in a way, winter solstice is like the beginning of a brand new year. how did you spend yours?

I sniffed the grass and felt the sun on my cheeks and wondered what I should be celebrating on the summer solstice.

I ate a lot of dim sum and then went to see the YSL exhibit at the museum and then fell asleep on the sofa. You know, those normal Solstice activities!

Hope you had a great time.

Sleeping like a baby. My first afternoon nap in months.

Played ball with the dog. Had lunch at Kid Valley in Kenmore. Went to Snap Doodle. Cut lower limbs on tree before cutting down tree. Prepped a room for new Anderson window. Changed a few computer passwords. Finished reading a book. Found a 5 dollar bill while walking dog. Had a bowl of Chocolate Velvet (a non-dairy frozen dessert). That's more or less it.
