So the Chex Mix is made (and happily being eaten), the prime rib is in the refrigerator awaiting cooking for Christmas Day, I'm picking up our ham this morning and DH bought his spritz cookies last night. Solstice has now arrived, the fires have been rekindled and the sun is beginning the return voyage to the heat of the summer. The lean season is beginning, but it is starting with a feast of friends, food and festivity. To honor my friends and to celebrate the Solstice, I have sunrise pictures to share with all of you today. Thank you for enriching and enlightening my life over the past year. I look forward to sharing the next with all of you.
