Travel Log 12-21: The Longest Night of The Year

Will also be the stormiest here in SoCal. It has been raining steadily for 4 days now, and supposedly this afternoon and tonight is supposed to be the worst as one storm front hits another..directly over my house....
   But I look at it this way- It's my own personal re-enactment of winter, for one week only, here in the land of the sun. Normally I am wishing for nice rainy days all the time. Now I truly feel like I will never see the sun again, and I am wishing for it's return. So I can truly celebrate the turning of the wheel tonight.
    Unfortunately this all meant that I got to see NONE of the Eclipse this past night. I was severely disappointed.
    But that is ok. We're going to do some preserving with the lemons that grew out of a tiny tree in our side yard that I forgot was there. Truly an unexpected gift of little suns in this greyness. We'll be making some lemon syrup, and I might go for some lemon-vanilla jam. The boys and I are going to make some sun cookies before they go to bed and then the hubby and I are going to do our own meditation time and then snuggle down on the couch and watch movies.
      Blessed Yule everyone and may the next year be better than the last!

  1. From Snowy New York to Rainy SoCal, Yule Blessings to you and yours, Trav!! Your box arrived late this afternoon, on this very day of Yule!! Am rifling through it now, and taking photos!! Safe and sound arrival. Thanks bunches to you!!! Robin. P.S. Too cloudy here, too for either full moon sighting, or eclipse, or the meteor shower...very disappointing.
