According to a sun calculator, the sun rose at the same time this morning as the previous 11 mornings, but each day has risen a little higher on the horizon. So today is the day. There are only a few times in the year when the sun beams through the glass block niches by our front door. When it happens, I love how light bounces off the walls of the normally-dark foyer. So this is what you see when you come through my front door today.
A little sign made by my youngest when she was about eight years old. It may be rightfully hers but I'm keeping it -- I think it's been grandfathered in by now.
And when you get yourself all the way in and turn around . . . well, it doesn't take that much to make me happy sometimes. Are you noticing this around your house, too?
