Winter Solstice 2009

Solstice Cats Candle

I lit the special cat candle (electric), dedicated to the Solstice and all of our lost friends.

Outside, it looked like this:

Tom and I enjoyed a lovely spaghetti dinner, and afterwards I made the traditional Solstice chocolate pudding. I make it from scratch, chopping up the chocolate, combining the ingredients, and cooking it slowly on the stove. It's always tasty that way, but it doesn't last long around here.

Amazingly, I got to bed around 11:45am, I got up at about 3:30pm, and I'm still wide awake. I like doing without sleep sometimes, so I can work on stuff, and I'm liking it this time. I'm sure I'll sleep well when I finally do get into bed, but... just not ready now.

Now for artwork!

Beautiful photos, Lois! I love your cat candle, pudding story, and most of all that lovely feeling of a little extra time "borrowed" from time when we normally would sleep... I agree and like it too!

Thank you! I longed for that candle just forever, and then, sadly, the store that had it went out of business and I was able to afford it on sale. I got the very last one.
