Eleven Hours and Fifty Two Minutes

of daylight in my world today.  The darkness of winter is closing in.  Each day will be slightly shorter until we have only about 7 hours of daylight between sunrise and sunset.

So, I am making plans for
  • shorter days of cruising which translates into fewer locks to do each day :-)
  • meals based around comforting soups, stews and casseroles that warm you before you even begin to eat them
  • crocheting and crafting during the longer evenings
  • soul pleasing fires in the stove to enjoy morning and night
  • movie nights with popcorn and some of the charity shop movies we have found
  • reading books with warm cups of tea
  • heck, I might even get to some of the mending that has sat here all summer :-)
And , as always, the daily walks to explore the area and get some exercise.  Sometimes they manage to end in a pub with a half a pint but that is an added benefit. :-)

And then, in celebration of Mike's birthday, the days begin to get longer again!
