The Winter Solstice, Christmas and the new year.
A guiding light. A beautiful scene. Everyone needs some of these things in their life, if not every day, then once in a while. Below are some of the scenes that made us want to share – pulling out a camera device or phone to take a picture for the purpose of sharing, remembering or to look once again at a beautiful scene
End of Summer Harvest
Can pumpkins be used as Christmas decorations? I have quite a few. Those pumpkin seedlings, referred to in the spring edition blog post , did extremely well.
I wasn’t there to harvest them. I was in Ontario working on the cabin. When I got back the entire garden had been harvested and the garage was being used to store some of the food – still is.
As usual there were lots of potatoes.
Laurie is excellent at canning. We will be eating these a Christmas.
Winter solstice 2022
Winter solstice 2022 in the Northern Hemisphere will be at 2:47 p.m. on Wednesday December 21, which makes that tomorrow as I write this now. The following is a bit more trivia from Time and Date website
The most exciting thing about any winter Solstice is that the daylight hours will slowly start to increase.! To celebrate, we, as a family have chooses to do …nothing. Not, nothing, but as Gracia put it “I want to do something while doing nothing”. I’m looking forward to doing this, full of wonder.
A Wedding Invitation
On January 7, 2023, we’ll be around Cemona for the celebration.
But before we do, Laurie, Gracia, Kiersten and I will Celebrate Christmas day in our home with the tree, warmth, food and fun.
Our New Years Evening celebrations currently are booked for a party in Edmonton.
