Today is the Shortest Day of the Year!

At least it is for those of us who live in the Northern hemisphere. This is wonderful news to me, because I hate the short dark days of winter. The sun has been hugging the horizon so hard, it is barely up over the trees at high noon. I remember driving to work in the dark and driving home in the dark. Thank goodness I don't have to do that anymore. Tomorrow, the day will be just a little bit longer, and then every day after that will be longer and longer, until the summer solstice, which happens around June 21 or 22nd.

It was still dark when I went to bed around 7:30, and it's usually just barely getting light. It was dark when I woke up at 5 pm, but that is nothing new. The day goes by as I sleep so dark is really a close friend to me.
