Happy Solstice!

Yesterday was the Winter Solstice here and we celebrated the change in the Earth's orientation quietly, with vegetable soup, ginger bread, mulled wine, and a felt solar system.
There are few words to describe our joy that the coming days are going to get longer, little by little, but longer none the less.
The last few days have also been warmer, which has been nice but the snow has melted, and it's lulling me into a false sense of security because the days are going to get colder... hopefully bringing more snow.
Thanks to Michael for this photo - it's not easy taking a photo of things on a window during the day, but night time with a tripod is much simpler. As you can see, we left Pluto out... poor Pluto... we have more felt, so we could make Pluto.

Hope you are well and looking forward to the changing hours of sunlight, wherever you are in the world. Happy Solstice!
