Happy Winter Solstice


Last night as the sun set, anticipation set in. After a full day of light snow (only 6 inches of the fluffy, white stuff this time), we settled in for the final evening of autumn.

Today at 7:04 a.m., we finally are making our way slowly back to spring and sunshine. Although the Winter Solstice designates the official beginning of winter, the knowledge that we are headed back to our gardening days warms our hearts.

Christmas is mere days away, all packages have been sent and we are settling down in front of the glowing wood stove to relax for the remainder of the holidays.

H, Spike, Sluggo and I wish all of you a wonderful Holiday Season! May the new year bring you all health and happiness.

Life is Good,

Hugs, Giddy

Beautiful photos! You have more snow than us, we had lots of rain last week.
Merry Christmas to you and your husband. I am headed off to look at your knitting blog.

Your fluffy snow looks very pretty and that's another beautiful sunset picture.
Hard to believe it's only the first "real" day of winter. Feels like it's been with us for quite a while already.
We only had a light snowfall this morning. The storm bypassed us and I'm not complaining!
Wishing you, H and the "boys" a very merry Christmas and a healthy, happy New Year!

I did not even realize that the winter solstice had passed me by!

The snow pics look beautiful, but I am glad the big storm missed Michigan, at least this time.

Merry Christmas!
