Today is winter solstice, and here is how I spent it:
-woke up late, disoriented. Went through normal breakfast routine.
-tucked a shivering puppy under my arm until it stopped shaking.
-worked with many rambunctious puppies
-walked dogs who knew the trail better than I did.
-biked in the fog/mist to dinner (it’s 70 degrees and really humid!)
-had a wonderful, practically gourmet dinner from Boxcarr Farms.
-celebrated with a s’mores pudding: sweet meringue over bittersweet chocolate pudding over homemade grapham crackers, I think.
-celebrated even further with a flight of beers. Finally had pigmeat markham smoked rye ale, just before it was gone for the year.
-biked happily home, knowing that my sweetie is free from work for at least a week.
Thank you for putting up with me while I counted down solstice as best as I could. I’ll probably take a few days off during the weekend, but I’m going to try to do a retrospective of photos and books before the new year shows up. In the meantime, have a wonderful holiday.
All the best,
