Happy Winter Solstice!

Happy-winter-Solstice

Winter solstice, falling this year on Sunday, Dec. 21, marks the first day of winter in the Northern Hemisphere. More precisely, winter officially begins at 6:03 p.m. ET — the moment when the Northern Hemisphere is pointed at its furthest distance from the sun. This means winter solstice boasts the longest night and the shortest day, and often colder temperatures, too.

But the good news? If you’re not a fan of winter, from each day on after the solstice, the days will get longer and warmer until the calendar hits summer solstice, June 21, 2015. Summer solstice marks the first day of summer, the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

Winter in Wisconsin

Today, it has been snowing all day.  The snow is so beautiful as it falls and covers the earth. But, it is cold outside so I did not take many photos.  Brrrr!

First Snow of the Season

We got our first snow of the season today. It is not much but enough for Shelby to play in for a few minutes.

Just two days ago it was 70 degrees here!!!

Another Not So Wordless Wednesday

Photobucket
A not so Wordless Wednesday for this week…
This photo was taken by a close friend of mine, Johnny.
Not far down this road is the cemetery where my mother is buried.
 I really miss her.  Thank you Johnny for this sweet
memory of home!  You are one awesome friend 🙂
