welcome winter solstice…

Full December Cold Moon ~ 5:46 P.M. ~ 12.21.18

Technically, the Winter Solstice arrived today, 12.21.18, at 5:23 pm, accompanied by the Full December Cold Moon. Despite the moon’s moniker and the advent of colder temperatures, we’ve enjoyed spring like temperatures all day – mid 60°s, accompanied by a nice downpour, mid afternoon.

Technically, the full December Cold Moon is tomorrow, Sat 22 Dec at 12:48 pm. Why can one see the moon in the daylight? The technical term for  this phenom is syzygy . Interesting.

Our day has been quiet…I had a hair appointment and stopped at the grocery store for a few items. Tomorrow, my plan for any weekend shopping is to begin early and return home  circa 2 pm. That should give me my “fill of mingling with holiday crowds.”

Have a grand weekend!

Cheers~

  1. The significance of this day totally went by me-probably because it was wet and gray all day. Finally getting to stop by our new “home”. Sending you all this best this holiday season.
