Welcome to the winter solstice of 2016. It arrived early this morning with the sound of rain pounding on the windows. As I type this post, the rain is back with more force and some thunder. I think this may have been the first winter solstice that actually feels like winter in many years.
Like a bear, I’d like to hibernate for winter, take naps and hide in the house but that’s not possible and it would probably make me sad. Instead I am going to go out, celebrate a family birthday, bask in the Christmas lights that are all over the neighborhood and enjoy lots of hot chocolate, hot tea and hot coffee while watching some good movies in my warm socks. I’ll be grateful that I have a home, heat and a bed to lay my head down every night.
Happy winter to you!
