Looking forward to a little more daylight after the Solstice. I just haven't adjusted to the shorter days and still feel like it's bedtime by 7:00. Too much darkness. It leads to too much sitting around, too much snacking, and watching too many Hallmark holiday movies. You know the ones, where they rotate the actors but follow pretty much the same themes. They always feature ice skating, a regular guy who pops up now and again making you question whether he's really Santa (he is), and scenes that include a sponsor's product such as Folgers or a new one this year, PAM spray.
Erik watches sports in the other room. The Warriors are nothing short of amazing. The Forty Niners are terrible and nobody cares, everyone wishes the owner would just go away. And then we're keeping track of the additions to the SF Giants team for next season.
I tried to get tickets for the Adele concert in San Jose. A ridiculous waste of time online as scalpers sent in their bots to purchase all the tickets within minutes. Trying to attend any big name concert is for the wealthy as tickets are being offered for hundreds and thousands of dollars. I can do much more with my money. It's sad, really, for those of us who remember attending concerts "back in the day" when all we had to do was camp overnight in a line and end up getting pretty good seats to a band such as The Rolling Stones or Paul McCartney or Elton John. Ah well. At least we have YouTube to catch those we miss.
We had a little more rain over the weekend. It's been cold here so the rain turns to morning fog and frost all over the pastures. I took this with my phone yesterday morning.
We're due more rain sometime today/tomorrow, then again on Thursday. We're still nowhere near being out of the woods as far as the drought is concerned, but we'll take anything we can get. The weather makes it seem a bit more like Christmas. My oldest hen and my rooster (both are almost 7 years old) decorated the coop yesterday. I thought they did a very nice job.
I hope you are all staying calm during this season. No stress. If it doesn't get done, it's okay. Enjoy the season!
