Yuletide begins

Steve and I celebrated Yule seriously for the first time yesterday. At 4:35 pm we were standing on the pier at Ocean Beach to watch the sun set. On the west coast, when the sun starts to set you need to watch it pretty closely because you can actually see it move. It goes down that fast. Sunset was at 4:46 so we watched it go, trusting it would be back today, which I'm happy to report it is.

From there we went through the OB "Farmer's Market" which actually did have real produce along with arts and crafts. Lots of street musicians including one lever-harp player. His harp was about 28 inches high and 3 octaves. I didn't stick around too long because I didn't have anything to toss into his hat.

After that we stopped at Tiny's for dinner. Tiny wins the OB Chili Cook-Off every year, and Steve had nothing but good things to say about it. Ryan had chili as well but I felt more in a chicken burrito mood. I had no complaints about mine.

We made a side trip to seki_raku's place since Steve had made jars of homemade pasta sauce for her and we wanted to drop them off. She gave him a culinary blowtorch for putting the sear on steaks indoors. My gift is still in transit. We admired Greystoke Junglelord, her 9 month old striped grey tabby and his sister Misha, who was more stand-offish. Grey on the other hand, really needs a playdate with Ivan because I think they'd have a blast.

Steve and I went home, lit up the gas fireplace and filled our horn with beer to thank the deities and ancestors and hope for an even better new year.

I hope all who celebrate the Solstice had a good one.
