One good thing is that the days are getting longer by a couple of minutes each day. Well, I guess it would be good if the snow stopped and we could actually see the sun. The sunrise time for today is 7:01 and the sunset time is 16:23. This is 23 minutes longer than the shortest day, 22 December.
There was no big adventure yesterday. I didn’t leave the apartment. Not once. Not even to go to Haruki. I worked on the Roses blackwork piece most of the day and made some progress.
Ted made a nice dinner last night – salmon and rice with vegetables and a bottle of Yamazaki Winery Chardonnay. Back before the snow, before I came to Hokkaido, Ted went with a class of students to the winery. Here are a few of Ted's pictures from that trip.
