Hello all! Ahhh, the joys of winter! : Mostly, I have been loving it.
I've been writing about our winter fun/difficulties---> blog
For me, these few days until winter solstice are all about being in the here and now- not worrying about getting things done. My rituals are simple and spontaneous: a few days ago, my hubby suggested we go out side after the girls went to bed. It was snowing and we built a little fire. The firelight reflecting on the snow- the joy of being together alone- this was a magical ritual of winter to me! :
Blessings to you all!
My soup and solstice party tonight was great success. The nine inches of snow did hurt the guest list some but I did have 20 of my closest neighbors and friends walk to my house in the snow to celebrate with us. Had to forgo the outside bonfire for a tame fire in the fireplace but that was fine. Kids ran around. Wine and cider flowed, ideas exchanged, neighbors re-acquainted. It was a great time full of joy and warmth.:
Merry Solstice to all!
