Good morning fellow non-believers. (I have to remind myself sometimes that this site is for atheists only.)

While I would love to have French toast for breakfast, I'm "fasting" this morning except for a cup of coffee. Evidence shows intermittent fasting--like for 16 hours--is good for the body for several reasons. I don't do it often enough, because I love breakfast. I forced myself to fast today. The coffee helped!

Have a good one.

No snow here in Northeast Ohio but RAIN, wind, and 67°F!  THIS is supposed to be winter?!?

The snow arrived here, too, and is beautiful! Laura is out shoveling the walk and driveway with Zeek, the German Shorthaired Pointer, running circles around Dominic. If they play outside my window I will attempt to capture a photo.  

Present temp:31°; expected H 35° / L 27°.

We're getting the snow we should have had a month ago. The neighbours are really good about keeping it cleaned up for us.

Hi Randall. Here autumn has changed into an early spring, wet and windy for weeks on end. Two months ago we had a little nightfrost and that was all. Daffodils, rosemary  and other early flowers are in bloom. We are still decluttering our home,this morning I dumped some 30 books at a recycling point.

Wow--what a gloomy day, weatherwise! Rain, rain, and more rain (like 3-4"). Good news is that it isn't snow. It's 60 degrees outside right now. I'll be stepping around and over basement water as I walk this morning. (Sump pump will remove it.) Then it's watching TV sports the rest of the day. I may also work on a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle I got out the other day. Ah, winter!    And you?

Patricia, that pasta spaghetti monster is clever. May I offer my 10 Commandments for Pastafarians? 

Joan’s Pastafarian’s Commandments

1. I am a proud non-believer in gods.

2. I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in life in the universe. 

3. I respect the people of the Earth and their struggles for freedom and liberty. 

4. I understand Homo sapiens evolved from earlier life-forms and are social animals. 

5. I have regard for other species as part of the systems of Earth’s existence. 

6. I stand for the protection of the elements of water, air, fire, and soil. 

7. I value diversity.

8. I think every child has the right to be a wanted child. 

9. I support the right of a woman to have control over her body and her right to an abortion.

10. I confirm the right of a father to maintain a relationship with his children even as he has responsibilities to support them.

Patricia, I love that Flying Spaghetti Monster wreath -- it reminds me of the monstrances of some other, far sillier religion, which evidently plagiarized the idea from thirteenth-century Pastafarians! :)

So glad the days will be getting longer.

Every little patch of snow melts into the aquafer and sporadic rain comes and goes. Cold winds made a mess of my empty clay flower pots stacked neatly outside our garden shed and greenhouse. Fallen branches will have to wait for warmer weather before I gather them for the burn pile. 

We had a Yule celebration on winter solstice that involved great food and vibrant conversation. It is now 10:30 PM Dec. 24. We will have a family dinner tomorrow with ham and the usual side dishes. My granddaughter, Laurie, will bring a breakfast casserole tomorrow morning and then prepare the rest of the dinner. Her cooking always delights us; her partner and their two children eat healthy, delicious, fresh food. Her frugal nature does not cause a loss of taste, quality, and quantity in her food choices. 

We don't give gifts either; our celebrations occur on their birthdays. We treasure our time together. 

I hope each one of you and your families has a safe, interesting, and joyful day tomorrow and the coming end of the year. We all can enjoy a  well-deserved rest and recuperation. 

Our school-age children enjoy the freedom of these holidays. They will be out on their bikes riding the trails if the weather cooperates.
