#65 πŸ’œ summer solstice… new day dawning


Psalm 65:8 via www.anextraordinaryday.net

Hello & Welcome to my 65th episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is the thrill of dawn after hours of late-night summer solstice knitting ’til the crack of yawn πŸ™‚

Keeping up with the solstice sunrise can be a challenge… Especially here at the 53rd parallel N on the Canadian prairiesβ€”where summer days and winter nights grow extra long. Well okay… winter sunrises/sunsets are easy-peasy. SoΒ every year since moving here, it’s the thrill of catching a pixelated first glimpse at summer’s dawning 17-hour solstice “magic” that rises up within my night-owl-ishly inclined inner-knitter’s heart ❀

Summer Solstice 2017…Β 
sunrise 5:06 am ❀ sunset 10:06 pm

Then last night… errr… 3:30 this morning… uhhhm… actually yesterday morning, since gently “coaxing” this post into shape has taken so long… sighhh :-/

Anyhoo… it finally dawned on me!

  1. My body has enough trouble twice a year with the time change for daylight savings time. I can’t imagine 17 hour days. Great pictures!

    • Thanks Linda ❀ Yup, dst can definitely mess with a good routine. And these 17-hour days definitely take some getting used to… It's tough to feel like hitting the sack early when the day doesn't dim 'til 10:30, but I love it! πŸ™‚ πŸ’œ Jackie@KWH

  12. I love the idea of knitting by the late daylight – I’m in Sweden and still amazed how light it is at midnight and even read a book outside then! Warmest wishes πŸ˜€β€οΈ

    • Ooooh yeah… maybe not so great for trying to sleep, but me ‘n my low-vision RP totally ❀ the thought of that!!! Sweden is a few parallels further north than us. And even here, I've been thrilled to knit outside 'til 10:30 pm when the natural light finally dims😍😎
      Happy reading and warm wishes to you, Annika πŸ™‚ πŸ’œ Jackie@KWH

  13. Darn! The video wouldn’t play for me. 😦 😦 Not much of a sunrise here today- it’s pouring, but have a good weekend anyway. Thanks for your company.
