Shortest day of the year

Today is the shortest day of the year in Finland. It's only half past two in the afternoon and the sun has already set.

I only got fifteen minutes of sunlight today while doing some snow work in our driveway outside.

On the bright side, from today forward, each day will be longer and longer as we are getting closer to summer everyday.

For some reason, I have missed summer a lot lately.

Maybe it is because this winter has started out quite cold and well, wintery.

As I am writing this post, which I haven’t been doing for a while, I am looking at the frozen lake which is slowly getting darker and darker as the last rays of sunlight are disappearing behind the lake.

The scenery of the setting sun is distracted by the numerous types of small birds that are fighting for the last pieces of seed which we had put outside this morning.

It’s a beautiful scene.
