Rainy Solstice

I’m suffering from Amazon derangement. That’s when packages arrive and you have no idea what’s in them — even though you placed the order 48 hours ago.

Cookies are being made.

Blankets quilted.

Diet watched.

iPhone battery replaced.

Sister visited.

Dog walked.

Annual read of Solstice story by Susan Cooper finished.

December circle opened and closed.

News consumed. And then more news. Aaaaaaaaaaaah!

    You are so GOOD! I have been eating TruWhip while watching Rachel. Definitely definitely lots of visions of Indictments dancing in my head.

    Those first two meals and the cookies…OH MAN!!! Yum! I’m not big on eggs, or watching my diet evidently. (((sigh)) I love those brown plates of yours, have I told you that? They have such an old west look about them and they remind me of a set my mom had way back when. Love your Solstice gatherings. I oohed, ahhed and gazed at the moon at work tonight and read from my Silence book on my lunch. That’s about as much honoring as I could get to 🙂 xo

      The first was a pile of broccoli rabe sautéed with garlic. I don’t know how I lived the first 35 years of my life without rabe! Yes I remember the dish comment. They come in blue, too.

    I love this post too. I really got a taste and tone from it. Such an efficient and useful Solstice there. Here all day mostly sleeping but by mid afternoon I was back at the knots and glue of the pennant for Mo I want to mail Saturday….rain or balmy mist all evening, some cooking and eating in between, plus three final other packages readied for the post leaving one I’m unsure of finishing. Okay Solstice. Finally I indulged in a film that I identify with [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4XNv0QGwdA&w=560&h=315%5D

      I hope you’re not getting sick? (The nap?). Napping is a way of life of course, so hopefully it means nothing. Sounds like you had a productive few days too! Haven’t hit the link yet. A treat for this afternoon.
