Just a short while ago hubby, greyhound and I did the same walk that I walked with my dog, last night. The light was fantastic and I clicked away on my camera and filmed some more video…which I will put on here, later on. You have been warned!
I’m fascinated by the reflections in the water and might have a go at painting this image sometime.
Not content to just collect conkers, I’m a cone fiend as well. I start to collect them, from about now onwards and they will dry out in time to form part of my Christmas decorations. There’s a big tree above here that is laden with them. When we’ve had high winds, I can’t resist coming for a look and collecting them; and they smell sensational. I also collect interesting shaped branches [small] not tree size! These are sometimes sprayed with fake snow, or silver spray and also become decorations for the house.
I confess I’m a Christmas freak and my decorations will go up at the beginning of December. I’m like a big kid that can’t wait. It’s not the pressies that float my boat, it’s the decorations, the tree, the Christmas Day lunch and just the atmosphere.
Hubby and I don’t do as much Christmas shopping these days.. he’s not really up to it. Also half of my family don’t talk to each other and the other half are dead. Nice hey? It’s the truth…I swear! How many families do truly get on?
I don’t let this spoil my Christmas though…oh no. I love it. But, by New Years Day I’ve usually had enough. I’m not a big fan of the New Year. I had my New Year on Friday/ Saturday.
So, on New Year’s Eve you’ll find me hiding somewhere and doing a pretty good Scrooge impersonation…bah humbug! Damn and blasted thing comes around every year!
How about you?
- How do you spend your Christmas and New Year?
- How soon do you put up your decorations?
- Are you a wild party goer?
- Do you have a large family to buy for?
Feel free to join in, or not and rate my post, if you like so I know whether I’m driving you nuts.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Monday evening.
Until the next time.
