    It's one of our favorite days of the year - we love winter.

    On this, the shortest day of the year, I'll be serving short ribs, short-cut scalloped potatoes, a variety of "short" raw veggies (yeah, I know, that's pushing the "short" thing) and shortcake.

    I wouldn't say I celebrate but I love the shortest day of the year. I love winter and long cozy evenings.

    The cold earth slept below; Above the cold sky shone; And all around, With a chilling sound, From caves of ice and fields of snow The breath of night like death did flow Beneath the sinking moon.
    Solstice Blessings

    Winter solstice is an astronomical event that marks the earth's tilt, in the northern hemisphere, at its farthest point from the sun. It is also the first day of the winter season. Solstice is the shortest day and the longest night for those in the northern hemisphere, from here on out the days will get longer and the nights shorter, until we reach the summer solstice in late June.

    While there are various cultural and religious interpretations of the event, I simply see it as the end of one solar year and the start of a new one.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH
