Windy today.

Gray and cloudy too.

The sun is waiting to appear.

Out of the shade

And from the dew.

By me, T.C.

December was the last month of the old Roman year which was divided into ten months. The Saxons called it ‘winter-monat’ or winter month, and ‘heligh-monat,’ or holy month,


‘In December keep yourself warm and sleep.’
