About the blog

I have no heavy training... Barely Elementary School. Preferred the wilderness, it became my university, but I got muddy boots and experience instead of School knowledge so my English was therefore quite inadequate. This blog is a project to improve my skills in English language.

We all have our own universe, welcome to visit mine.

Darkest time.

Everyday lifePosted by Uncle Henry Fri, December 26, 2014 10:06:16

The winter solstice is just passed and slowly, very slowly, the days grow slightly longer and the nights slightly shorter.

Now is the darkest time of the year and our farm rests for a time in the shade although the occasional ray of sunshine finds its way through the branches. This morning it was 26 degrees below zero, grimly with the first real cold before you become accustomed.

Late at Christmas Eve, when we were out to the wooden storehouse with Santa's porridge (an important tradition that we never miss!),offered nature an unusually clear starry sky which was also painted with Northern Lights. Amazing, it was a really evocative Christmas night.
