Four Days Til Solstice
I've discovered since we moved to Washington, after a 7-year stint in sunny Yuma, Arizona, that the Alaskan in me comes out in the winter time. I have been thinking about December 21st for a couple of weeks now. This will be my fourth winter here in Eastern Washington. While I love living here, I could do without the long winter. I know just a short time ago, I wrote that I was happy to see winter arrive because we ran hard last summer. I'm over it now. I want summer to come back. Soon.
This time of year is always busy and I have a full December calendar. January, not so much. We don't have any trips planned. There are no parties. It's very much like living in Alaska without the -50 weather. Just gotta hang on and watch the days grow longer.
