COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER
Although it may be hard to tell, but today the decent into darkness ends and the return to light begins. That is what the Winter Solstice or longest night of the year signifies. The sun sets very early today and each day until the Summer Solstice which is the longest day of the year, the days will get longer. Of course those of you buried under snow may be having a hard time seeing that. We are having the coldest temperatures of this year tonight, but don’t despair, it will be warm by Tuesday.
We got some lights up tonight so the house didn’t look too grinchey. I love the lights this time of year, I just don’t have the energy to put them up. Maybe I will dig more out tomorrow and hang them, if I don’t hang myself in them.
It is hard to find the joy in the season when so many of friends are having such a hard time. I wish there were something I could do but money is tight everywhere. I haven’t decided whether to actually seek a ham tomorrow or see if I have some pork chops to thaw for tomorrow night.
At least the cats are all healthy and happy. I got a Bitwit biscuiting tonight. She got in my lap at the shop, tucked her head in my soft fleece lined dress and went to town. She was even purring. Howler showed up with his mother, Moon Probe and had a can. There was a terrible accident on 441 at the canal but since I live in no man’s land, none of the news services are covering it. We could fall into the center of the earth and no one would cover it out here.
