Comfort food for the weary soul

 my mantra at this time of year is, only six weeks more and then, by jingo, the days start getting longer.  My long kitchen has a window on the west, and some time in January the sun has moved around just enough that the light comes in obliquely, leaving a sunny patch on the north wall.  This  year Im planning on seeing that happen,  and take note of it. 

Little things, perhaps, but there's a lot of good eatin' in them sometimes.


  1. Spring is only 134 days away. Disgust starts the day that daylight saving time ends.

  2. I hear you. For me, it's that time of year when, not only do I not have to pull down the shade at sunset to keep it from shining directly on my computer screen, but it sets about half an hour before it even gets in postion to shine directly into the window at all.

    It's hermitville in the north country.

  3. i have the same problem in reverse, inthe morning, since the sun shines directly into the east window and onto my computer screen across the hall.

    On the plus side, however, since we have no source of heat upstairs alllll the heat from the kitchen below rises up the stairwell just behind me and I get it all. bwahahaha.

  4. I dunno, I love November and December at this latitude and climate, having grown up through the hell of an English autumn and winter...with NO sun, grey skies, nothing good out there, no stars. November!

    Here there's sun even in winter, it's wonderful.

    Oh well. Everything's relative
