We're waiting for the Solstice; we're waiting for Christmas. We're waiting for our much-anticipated Christmas guests to arrive! :-) I do not like to wish away time. But we're waiting. I have things to do to prepare but can't do many of those things until a few more days have passed. Waiting!

It is hard on all the dogs right now. The days are short, and the nights are long. It's hard to get out on the sheep or even to let the dogs out to run, with any regularity. It's hard on me, as that time is my mental and physical therapy, as well. Someone who is a healer mentioned to me today, that since we didn't have a real winter last year, that folks are going on two annual cycles of never slowing down. People need a real winter in order to rest and rejuvenate. She advised me to try to rest while winter is here. It's hard to do when you live with several energetic border collies! :-)
