Winter Solstice

May the shortest day of the year remind you that the light will return. And that we are that much closer to kicking this year to the curb.

For any of you astronomy and star lovers, reminder that Jupiter and Saturn align tonight for the first time in over 800 years (the night part). Look to the southwest just after sunset.

Happy Winter

Today is the first day of winter and the day that my kids normally exchange their gifts to each other. This is something they have been doing for years, but this year may be interesting as MC had another surgery this morning and may not feel up to it when he gets home. I hated having to schedule it for today, but we needed to get him in as early on his break from school as possible so that he could, hopefully, be back to normal, or as close to it as possible, when he goes back to school after the first of the year. Thankfully, the snow in the pic above is from last month and we don’t have any of that on the ground right now. Anytime after Hubby and MC get home would be fine, though.

What a way to welcome in Winter.
