Vintersolhverv -- Winter Solstice

Citat fra DMI: "Solopgang/solnedgang: 8:44/15:34, dagens længde 6:50, aftaget 10:43
Måne op: 8:24/ Måne ned: 16:42"
I morgen håber vi på at dagen er tiltaget i længde.

Citation from DMI: "Sunrise/Sunset: 8:44/15:34, day length: 6:50, shorter by: 10:43
Moon rises: 8:24/ Moon sets:16:42"
Tomorrow we're hoping to read Day length -  longer by a minute or two.

      Vi har været ude og købe de sidste julegaver, fældet et juletræ - er vi lidt sent på den ... så holder træet da i hvert fald julen over - og Skribenten har hentet gåsen nede på gården. Nu skal vi have stillet julekrybben op og pyntet lidt mere her og der, så er vi klar.

We've been shopping today, buying the last presents, found and cut a tree  --  a bit late maybe, but then the tree won't drop the needles -- the Writer has been to the farm to get our goose. Later today we set up the nativity and hang more ornaments. Then we're all set to go, unless of course we forgot something.


Vores udsigt klokken 14.34 i dag, vådt og dunkelt:   --  Our view at 14:34 today, wet and dark:

  1. Uglemor,

    Your hours of daylight are so few at the moment! We decorated our Christmas tree today and did some last minute shopping. We are all ready for Christmas... unless we have forgotten something too! I hope you have a very blessed Christmas with your family. Happy Christmas!

    1. Oh, yes. I just looked up today's numbers. They're making me kind of happy: Sunrise/sunset: 8:45/15:35, day length 6:50, augmented by 0:00
      Moon rises: 9:13/ Moon sets: 17:54.
      It's the word "augmented" that makes me happy, the fact alone that it's that word and not "shorter by" asof yesterday. The "kind of" is because of the numbers following the happy word ;) We have to go shpiing today, as we forgot some essential things and two gifst, all of it of course not on the list yseterday.

      Wiht wishes for a peaceful and blessed Christmas for you and your family.

  2. Glædelig grå jul til ugleboet. Mon ikke I formår at sætte lidt kulør på selv? ;-)

    1. Mange ting kan man sige om livet i Ugleboet, men det er aldrig gråt og kedeligt. ;)
      Jeg håber at du trods gråt ude og inde må finde lysglimt, glæde og kulør i den kommende fest.
