53rd parallel north ♥ 17-hour summer solstice
Happy summer solstice everyone! I hope your summer is off to a great start 🙂 This longest day is my absolute favourite time of the year!!!
Our first day of summer was overflowing with brilliant sunshine and warm 20ºC/70ºF temperatures. It was a bit too breezy to really enjoy knitting outside. But mostly it was extra-long, measuring 17 hours of daylight 😀
Here at the 53rd parallel north on the Canadian prairies, the summer sky begins to brighten by 4:00 AM—with the solstice sunrise at 5:04 AM. Then it finally dims to darkness around 11 PM—with today’s sunset at 10:07 PM.
Totally ♥ ❤ ♥ that and wish EVERY day
could be a summer solstice day!
Things are brightening up on the inside too. We tried hiring an IT guy, but it was my wonderfully intelligent hubby who finally resuscitated my iMac 🙂 He’s neither Mac user nor IT guy, but he’s super-smart and I always knew he could figure it out! 🙂 ♥
Now after 7 weeks stuck at the “grey screen of death”, I’m pleased to say that my iMac is slowly moving forward and getting back to normal… YAY!!! Getting a computer back to normal seems about as much fun as moving, though, since it takes time for everything to get sorted and put into place again. It’s hard to believe that this post is the first via my iMac since the end of April… yeesh! But summer is here now, and things are looking up! Methinks it’s time for blogging to take on more of a hybrid iPad/iMac style!
