Sun Day on a Friday

One of my favourite days of the year: the day the sun will shine into our living room again after a long and dark winter.

Yesterday the sun was shining on the tree tops close to our house:

Today I was looking forward to having the sun shining in through that very window.  But some clouds came in the way and almost prevented any sun at all.  Finally, at almost the last minute, the cloudes cracked a bit:

At 16.20 the first and last rays of the day shone on our wall:

Definitely sunshine and shadows on the wall.

Later the clouds disappeared and we had a beautiful sunset.

If the weather permits, we will have at least 20 minutes of sunshine tomorrow. 

My husband’s grandmother, who lived here all her life,  used to smear some butter on the outside wall of the house on the day the sun returned. I have not got an explanation as to why she did this, other than she said it was to keep the sun happy. 

Maybe some of you would know more about this kind of tradition?

  1. Din lek med bilder er virkelig flott. Det kan jo bli en lekker quilt med noen av disse bildene. Kunne ønske meg fotoshop, men jeg tror rett og slett ikke tiden strekker til. Artikkelen du hadde i Quiltemagasinet for en tid tilbake, var veldig interessant.

  2. Takk for det, Eva. Det er kjempeartig å holde på med, men som du påpeikar: det tek ein del tid, – utan at eg eigentleg har dårleg samvet av den grunn. Til sjuande og sist blir det ei prioriteringssak 🙂
