It is quite a cloudy day here, certainly not the best sort of day to appreciate the Solstice. While it supposed to be the first day of Winter, most (if not all) of us in the Midwest have been well stuck into winter since November. However, the one thing that makes this official start of Winter bearable is that, tomorrow, the days will slowly, incrementally- but steadily- get longer.
And you all know what that means, dear readers. Spring is on the way. She won’t get here quickly, but her train has left the station.
Let us all celebrate tonight, give a toast or cheer to longer days and more sunshine, the coming growing season and warmer weather. Happy Solstice everyone!
