Happy Winter Solstice everyone!

Happy Winter Solstice everyone!

I made a bunch of cyanotype Christmas cards today to celebrate the shortest day! Harnessing the power of that precious few hours of sunlight. I took pages of one of my medieval novels, Knowing Yourself, and folded them in half. Then I painted them with cyanotype fluid and let that try. Ten minutes in the sun with bicycle gears and plants and voila!

yoga session

A relaxing yoga session by the Christmas tree with candle, kitty, gentle rain, and SoundScapes on cable. Every day is a blessing. Even if you only have five minutes, make some time for serenity #namaste

Yoga by the Tree

Lovely yoga session by the Christmas tree & Julie the Cat snoozing on the futon. So relaxing. And my new candle! I got it at the BVAA holiday party’s gift swap.

Interestingly, even the candle website doesn’t describe the scent very clearly. They say: this intense, intoxicating fragrance is aromatic and woody. That’s a bit vague :).
