Hello & Welcome

My favourite thing about living this far north is summer solstice and the extra-long days that go with it! That “other” solstice will have us on the flip side soon enough… But these days, especially with the above seasonal temperatures we’ve been having, it’s just so GOOD to enjoy being outside watching glowing skies finally dim around 11 pm ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s my idea of a summertime thrill!

Catching a glimpse of the summer solstice sunrise, on the other hand, is more rare… I’ll sometimes manage to wake up in time to see the sky already beginning to brighten by 4:00 am. But then I layย down for a moment, whilstย the sun rises to the peak of our neighbour’s roof… And awe shucks, the moment passes me by again! :-/

Last year’s summer solstice was extra great, for me. That’s when my iMac finally got resuscitated, after a month and a half on the fritz ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Now again, since directly followingย this post in early Aprilย ofย this year, my iMac has been gone for good :-/ But the blog must go on! And my trusty iPad has been a real lifesaver for that!!!

Thanksย for joiningย me in my iPad-photo solstice celebration of God’s glorious sun setting skies on theย longest day of the year. How did you enjoyย your summer solstice?

ย Our weather forecastโ€”fahrenheit or celciusโ€”for the
first week of summer is looking mighty fine ๐Ÿ˜€
Wish you were here!ย 

See how the video is pannedย to the far left? That’s where ourย winter solsticeย 
sun shallย set 6 months from nowโ€”between the last 2 clumps of taller trees.
