epic

I was so impressed by the ever lingering light this evening, I looked up the amount of daylight we had. Today, 13 hours, 54 minutes; 3 minutes and 14 seconds more than yesterday. We're as close to the summer solstice now as we are in August. Makes me glad we have southern exposure - we soak up every last minute of it.

Thank you for that. "we're as close to the solstice now as we are in August."
That makes me feel a little better about the April weather.

It was a surprising realization, Jess.

Exposure is a sore topic, because when we came to see this house we did not realize that it had a northern exposure ... Still, the bathroom as a southern exposure, and a shower/tub right next to a large window, so that we can shower and sunbathe at the same time :)

I've been soaking up all the daylight I can these days...I love each and every second of it!

One day I will live in a beautiful home with a greenhouse/porch room sort of attachement on the back...of the exact sort that is filled with sunlight for much of the year.

Gotta dream big!

I am loving this weather, it was still light at 8,20pm when I was working a few nights ago, and I love people showing up late and eating later, or early and eating their food in the garden.
