for White Christmas (wav)
It's a gorgeous morning!
It must have snowed last night.
Today is the Winter
Solstice, which, like Daylight Savings time, makes absolutely no
sense to me. Isn't this December and isn't winter just
Yet, the darkest day --
the shortest day of the year when the sun is at its lowest and
weakest -- is today. Tomorrow the day
will be longer and the sun, higher and stronger, yet spring is months away. I will personally
attest to this being the shortest day, as here it is: it's early
evening, yet it is pitch-black outside.
We celebrated the
solstice with good eats: DH made some delicious crab cakes
accompanied by the perfect chardonnay. My professorial husband
on vacation turns into a master chef.
