Family Circle ~ Yule 2013
We usually recognize Yule, or the Winter Solstice, with a family circle, special meal or treats and a gift. However, Darren and Joe were sick today, so we just lit a candle and reflected on the seasonal shift, which was highlighted by the unseasonably warm first day of Winter . We then opened a family gift, which was a nice pair of speakers for our main computer. We hooked them up and marveled at the improved sound quality. Then Darren, Joe and Flo went back to bed, Zofia went to Grandma's house, and I got to work tidying up for a potluck we're hosting tomorrow. It was brief, but memorable.
