I’ve spent many a winter day outside in the mid-afternoon waiting for the arrival of the school buses bringing my children and some of the daycare children. On the really cold days, I usually wait in a nearby bus shelter. From there I’ve watched the sun sink lower (in December) and now grow higher again in the sky. It wasn’t until today, though, that I felt a real warmth from it. What a great feeling! Even though the days are still hovering around – 10 C (14 F) I finally have some evidence that they can’t be around for too much longer!
