Happy Winter Solstice.

Saturday marks the Winter Solstice, the official beginning of winter in America. It’s also the last weekend prior to Christmas. So with apologies to those who were spinning the dredel around Thanksgiving, and others who don’t celebrate the upcoming holiday, here are a few photos from our December in Baltimore.

Every year our neighborhood lights a giant tree, and Santa pulls the switch.  Then the fire dept. rides him around on a truck.

These next two are along my walk to work in the morning.

Finally, some photos from the Rawlings Conservatory in Baltimore.  Every time I'm bummed out in the winter, I go here.

A Non-D Post. The Christmas Tree Process.

Fact is, I’m feeling pretty awful today. I’m still working, but I don’t really have the energy for much else. So I’m going to leave you with photos from our weekend, where The Great Spousal Unit, The Live-In Niece, and I made our annual excursion to cut down our Christmas tree, bring it home, string the lights, and hang the ornaments.

If you play Jingle Bells or O Christmas Tree in the background, you’ll almost have a Hallmark Channel movie. Photos courtesy of Maureen and myself. Enjoy your Monday.
