Too Hot, Too Long

 Too Hot, Too Long

 

I am a winter person.

My birthday is in February.

I would rather be cold than hot.

My colors are black, white and silver

Rather than beige, coral and gold.

I would rather watch the Bruins

Than the Red Sox.

My store of choice is L L Bean

Not the Banana Republic.

I drink gingerale instead of coffee

Prefer roasted vegetables to tossed salad.

I choose Alaska over the Caribbean

For my favorite vacation.

Curled up in an afghan with a book

Beats reading on the beach hands down.

Would rather survive a blizzard

Than the tail end of a hurricane.

So how am I feeling in July 2013?

Cranky, out of sorts, dissatisfied

Just plain too hot for too long ...

Well, you live in the right area. It's warm here 2 weeks out of the year. Not to worry, your cold dark winter is right around the corner.

My, How the Holiday has Changed

…from Betty Call’s demonstration to the Holliston Garden Club Imagine what it was like in ancient times in Europe. Nothing was more important than the sun. The people experienced the days becoming darker and darker until the winter solstice – the shortest day of the year. This was the low point of the whole year. (We have just had the same phenomenon – December 21 was the winter solstice.) Originally published on December 21, 2009. It was written by our dear friend and colleague at HollistonReporter.com, Ann Talbot, who died this past fall. Ann, the quintessential teacher, was always willing and able to shed light on a topic, as she does here on seasonal traditions. NF
