Shortest Day of the Year

It's officially the shortest day of the year here in the Northern hemisphere.

Very few hours of daylight, but lots to do.

Our receptionist is off this morning, and the phones are ringing off the hook.

I have several Christmas projects left to accomplish, and increasingly little time to do them in.

And tonight I need to grocery shop. Because there is a specific appetizer that I make every year for the family Christmas Eve appetizer extravaganza, and my brothers will be rather upset if they don't appear. (T. did offer to help me make them on the afternoon of the 24th.)

Near as I can tell there are three baking recipes left to be accomplished. And a bunch of Christmas cards to write. Large baking gifts to be assembled. An ornament to be made, and a gift to assemble. And those are just the Christmas related items.

The list for work, just for the day, is equally long.

So, I'd better start working on it!

This shortest day officially means we're moving towards spring! The days get longer from here (though maybe not warmer for a while yet!)
