The Darkest Days

16 Dec

We’ve reached the darkest days of the year.

The winter solstice is on December 21st, and then the sun begins its journey back to the northern hemisphere.  I am anxiously looking forward to those longer days.



Right now I feel like the cats.  I’m ready to hunker down and nap about twenty hours each day, but I don’t even have a rainbow pillow to sleep on.

It’s hard to get chores done outside.  Really, by the time I get home from work and make sure everyone is fed and watered, it’s dark.  I just want to curl up on the couch and do nothing.



I haven’t even hardly had the energy to set up photo shoots or bake.

We won’t discuss the lack of house cleaning.  Hopefully, my winter break will give me renewed energy and time to play with photography and make more soaps.

Yep, sales have been good, and I’ll be making more soap over break.  Maybe that will get my energy jump-started for the new year.
