I feel like winter is longer than usual this time of year. It's been unseasonably warm this winter, but it's still been dark. Yes, yes, I know we're going daylight now that we're past Winter solstice, but it's still way too many hours of dark. I'm ready to play in the greenhouse and plant a garden. Patience is really a virtue this time of year.
This is last Friday's sunset at 4pm. It rare that I capture a sunset up here, as I don't spend much time outside in the winter and there are no sunsets in the summer. We also live in a very treed area, so I'd have to plan to leave the house to capture a stunning sunset with the horizon in play.
Hubby made an observation last weekend, this is probably the longest we've gone without eating out regularly. The reason isn't what you might be thinking, it has nothing to do with COVID or restrictions. The less than a handful of restaurants we have in our small town are all very mediocre at best, and we honestly don't enjoy paying Alaska prices for meals that aren't worth talking about. I honestly make better food at home than any of these places. What have we been eating you ask?
