I confess, I am not a lover of winter. I can take the snow, the frozen water buckets, wet wool socks and beet pulp soaking in a tub by the door. I can even tolerate the boring times by myself while my husband is out into the wee hours of the morning plowing snow. I have no problem with woodstoves, winter hats, mittens or donning extra layers of clothes for late night trips to the barn lugging buckets filled with hot water. What I can’t stand however is those short days. The dark that creeps on long before supper and the feeling that we’re always up past our bedtimes for about 6 months of the year. I just wish it could be lighter longer. It sure would make winter much more pleasant.
Putting aside my winter complaint I managed snap an interesting shot of a wintery evening sky. I guess it’s not all bad. Stars look nicer in the winter too, I’ll try that next time.
