Winter Solstice

Winter solstice occurs exactly when the axial tilt of a plant is farthest away from its star, depending on the polar hemisphere of reference.  

The significance of winter is the lengthening of nights and shortening of days. Many of our holiday traditions are the result of our attempts to bring light and greenery into our homes to battle the darkness and lack of new growth in the garden. Look to the traditions of evergreen boughs, holly, and Yule logs, candles, and the singing of songs.

Depending on the shift of the calendar, winter solstice usually occurs on December 21st or 22nd in the Northern Hemisphere.   This year it is December 21st.

 



 

Winter Exercise

Even though winter weather might try to persuade you to stay tucked deep inside your warm bed, it is really best if you continue your exercise program. You may, however, have to replace some of your traditional, fair-weather exercise habits with some that are more unique. Many people enjoy cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, and ice skating or hockey. As long as you bundle in layers, there is no reason not to exercise outside.

But what if you're not so young anymore? Many elderly people claim that they stop their regular exercise routine when ice forms on the sidewalks. They fear falling and a broken bone more than they fear the adverse effects of not exercising.   There are many gyms that offer 3 month memberships, perfect for the winter weather. If you're still looking for free exercise opportunities, then head to your nearest indoor mall or shopping center. Meet a few friends there for an hour of exercise, socialization, and maybe some coffee!

 

 

Baked Brie with Cranberry Apple Chutney

Take a round of brie. Remove the rind if you wish. Spread 1 Tbs. finely chopped shallots over the top of the cheese. Wrap completely in a thawed sheet of puff pastry. Bake at 375F for 15 - 20 minutes until the puff pastry is a beautiful golden brown. While the cheese is baking, peel and chop two apples. Place in a saucepan with 1 cup cranberries. Add the zest of 1 lemon and the juice of lemon. Pour in 1 cup apple cider or cranberry juice and cook until reduced by half. Pour over the baked brie and serve immediately.

5 Ways To Prevent Winter Home Repairs

Winter weather can really damage your property. Here are a few tips to keep your home in good shape.

  • Prevent ice dams caused by accumulated snow, causing snow to back up on your roof, and find an opening in the sheathing.
  • Protect your plumbing, especially that against an outside wall.
  • Prune your large trees, especially those near your home, fence, driveway, or over your neighbor's house.
  • Keep pests out of your home...when they find their way in they can cause untold damage to your attic, soffits, siding, eves, and trim. Keeping them out will save you thousands of dollars.
  • Do you have a backup power or heat source? Ice storms and heavy snow can cause long-lasting power outages causing sump water backup, frozen pipes and dangerously cold temps inside.
