On this, the shortest day of the year,
Funny, I thought they all had 24 hours! But oh, how exciting to realize that we will have more time to not see the sun for the next six months. Hidden somewhere in the fog, that re-energizing orb will grace us a little longer, and that, my friends, is an amazing thing. But let's discuss what can be accomplished on the shortest day of the year. Breakfast at Hardee's followed by a Christmas run to Wal-Mart to finish shopping for the kidlings. A brisk walk to church to see the great niece and nephew in their Christmas "pageant" (and at one point, it did indeed look like "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever"). Walk home. Do a toughie of a crossword puzzle, have a bowl of home built tomato soup, mix up the ingredients for a carrot cake, prepare the Cornish Game Hens and broccoli salad for supper, enter today's post on Facebook, and finish up today's blog. And half the day is left! I'm anxious to see what kind of trouble into which I can get. (Oh Lordy, but that thing about prepositions at the ends of sentences can be a real pain in the...brain!) The day "light" indeed may be shorter, but the length of love remains the same. And you are!
