The days start getting longer

Today we have one second more of daylight than yesterday, the shortest day of the year. Yes, one second.

It was very dark when we left the warm comfort of our bed at 5:30 this morning. Terry had an early physical therapy appointment and I had plans to get the grocery shopping for the week done before the crowds left the malls and descended on the grocery stores. Fortunately, I was home by 10 where I proceeded to make pies from the organic blackberries I purchased. Terry didn’t get home until after noon as he had some other errands after the physical therapist saw him.

This is how our little tree appeared at 6:30 this morning, reflecting its lights onto the sliding glass door and out into the still-dark night.

  1. Hey, it may only be one second, but it will grow as time goes by. I usually don’t notice the extra light until the end of January, and then it begins to speed up on the way to spring! Yay! Merry Christmas to you and yours, Delaine. 🙂

  2. I’ll be glad for more light even here in Hawaii when we go to the Farmers Market at 6:15. It’s too dark to see the veggies right now.

  3. Blackberry pie? I’d love a slice of that.
