At last the shortest day of the year has arrived. From today the nights get shorter and the days longer. No more staring into the dark longing for sunshine, from today we stare into clouds full of rain awaiting sunshine. This morning I caught the sun low down struggling to rise, at least he will not get any lower now. This was long after 8:30 and the chill in the air revealed December was still winter even if it has been mild by comparison.
Spring is a coming.
Nothing else happened.
Again I ventured through the supermarkets for things forgotten, again I forgot things.
That sums up the day.
I looked for exciting happenings but none were seen.
Christmas shoppers with worried looks passed by, I smugly smiled and mentioned mine was all done and got a smack in the face or two from those who were not there yet.
The afternoon gale blew in, the rain swept down, I closed down and ironed some shirts.
I am not sure I can continue with this exciting life.
My nerves cannot stand much more of the thrill.
Roll on work....
