Then wrapped presents and sorted receipts for tax purposes and filled out my application for the Guaranteed Income Supplement which I may or may not get- they calculate income differently from the tax people and I'm a hair high; and was pleased to be able to put my hand on my 2013 return right where it ought to be. So that's all right. Now for drinks and turkey and merriment next door.
Also it's now 4:50 and I can still see the buildings out back. What a difference from the day before yesterday's louring rain, when it was darker than this at 3:30. But still- three days past solstice and already it stays light to 5?
