Happy Solstice!

It's all uphill from now: we'll be gaining sunlight from now on!
Only a few minutes at each end of the day, but by mid-January we'll start seeing the sun again at our house, which is currently being blocked by the mountains surrounding our valley, such as in the picture below, with just a tad of evening light hitting the top of Polar Bear Peak.

We had the shortest day of the year today, and it was properly celebrated at our house by SLEEPING IN!

Beautiful. I get so tired when the day is short, though.
