Winter Solstice

O winter! ruler of the inverted year, ....
I crown thee king of intimate delights, fireside enjoyment, home-born happiness and all the comforts that the lowly roof of undisturbe'd retirement, and the hour of long uninterrupted evening, know.
William Cowper
When the world was really cold a week ago, or so, I started making ice luminaria, thinking that I would make so many that I would line the driveway; clearly I was thinking to much! And loving the ice too much.
Now we have had rain. Thawing and rain!
But I did get 4 nice ice vessels and last night, on the longest night, I lit them up brilliantly!
Welcome Winter!


  1. sooo pretty!
    I love the line the driveway idea! what gradeur, what imagination! hee hee
    the ones you did make look amazing!

  2. Goodlights. My Landy headlights aren't quite that bright.
    I had to use your 'Pickles' cartoon for a legal statement on me blog. It was too good to pass up. Tanks.
    Tell Mike to type in 'Dodge Power Wagon' fer some good ole truk pics.
