I have not yet cooked rice. I am seated in front of the desktop responding to comments. I checked on the time at the wall clock because I thought it is already 6:30PM. But my alarm for Coumadin hasn't sounded yet. It is still 5:45 PM. The nights are getting longer while the days are getting shorter. The temperature is also getting cooler. The picture says it so. It is dusk.

I thought I could do some mylotting several hours ago. Someone needed me urgently to play with him (the kitten!), then one thing after another...

Finally you have cooler temps, it is very dark for that time. Our sun sets by just before 7pm in summer, in winter it is also dark before 6pm.

@ridingbet I had a rice cooker but now I do not have it anymore. I cook rice now in a pot. I like it much better.

i like the winter solstice though, since it is cooler, but the days are still so hot

i believe many of us prefer the winter solstice than the summer solstice. we don't sweat much, so there will be lesser air pollution.

@JustBhem oh, that is early for us here. so, before you retire in bed, do you have midnight snacks? or munch on something before you sleep, even before midnight?

maybe you were here in June or July where the days are longer than the nights. anywhere in the world, we have this nights and days of unequal time intervals, except June 21 and December 21.

It is that time of the year that nights are longer (and colder) and the days are shorter (and still very hot and humid).
