Today is the Winter Solstice, also known as Yule. The longest night that marks the official beginning of winter in the northern hemisphere. Where I live, we will get an extra 3 minutes of daylight per day until the Summer Solstice - lattitude matters!
Yesterday work was two parts - first in the morning, I finally figured out what was wrong in the script I had been fighting with - it's working correctly now. Then because of all the new clients that started sending files on Sunday, I had to monitor the loads in the evening - and it's a good thing I did. Something was wrong and I had to manually start several jobs and link others together to make sure they ran in the right order. Checked quick first thing this morning, and all is well there.
Spent the afternoon making an Aldi run, cooking, and playing Ticket to Ride online with a couple of friends. Today I will do some more cooking - bought a bag of potatoes and have a real taste for potato soup now that the weather is getting colder. Hm - they changed the forecast again (imagine that!) and today we are looking at a high of 46F, but only a high of 19 for Christmas Eve and 21 for Christmas day.
Wishing all of you a Blessed Yule.
