It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
We were very late decorating the tree and the house this year. No sooner was it the beginning of December then it was three days before the big day. We only bought the tree over the weekend. The lovely smell of the pine is wafting through the house. There is a Christmas tree farm just around the corner so it's very handy.
I spoke to my six year old grandson tonight, he's so excited it's only three sleeps til Santa comes.
I've been visiting some blogs recently with all lovely images of the snow, while we sit here sweltering. They do predict a pleasant 26degC for Christmas day though.
It's late in the evening as I write this, all the windows are open and a gentle breeze is drifting in through the house, ah summer's here at last.

I love the way children measure things in "sleeps" my kids did that too!
Have a lovely Christmas Ro.
Sending wishes your way for a Merry Christmas and Happy New year!
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Would you like for me to send you some snow? Its knee deep here, I am sure we can spare you some? lol
I love the photo! Merry Christmas from the frozen Midwest in the USA.
Greetings from Texas. Always crazy weather here. Sometimes Christmas feels like summer and sometiems like today, it's freezing.
Will you trade your sunshine for our snow/rain ? hmmmm ? Happy Holidays!
a world apart...but one message.
This seems so weird, Christmas in summer. I think that would be rather nice, especially for the package deliverers! Love your pretty stars. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
late at night with your windows open and a gentle breeze - it sounds just fabulous! - here we play snow games - our car got stuck backing out of the drive this afternoon - our wonderful neighbor came to the rescue with his tractor! - picked up my mom to take her to the grocery store also and she had to walk in a foot of snow to the car because we didn't want to get stuck again - not good for an 82 year old woman with a cane - I love your grandson's - only three more sleeps - my grandsons use to say the same thing - time was measured by sleeps - I looked up plum pudding - that is quite a bit of work - enjoy
Oh... I dream of summer! Snow is beautiful, but with it life becomes harder... Merry Christmas to you, Ro! Roxanne
I still count in "sleeps"...sensible way to measure time.
Oh to be little again...the anticipation used to make my son tremble with excitement...
Ro, this warm weather has been beautiful...and yes 26C for Christmas day! Looking forward to it.
Hope you and your family have a very happy Christmas...Jo xx

You can have my share of snow. My boots got a bit inside on the way to the mailbox in the dark. Ah! Windows open and a breeze - and no one shouting, "Where you born in a barn?" jeanne in Oregon in snow!
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Years to you and yours. I've missed reading your blog. ~mcdc3s/Maralena
Merry Christmas Ro!!! and a happy New Year!!
Ro, wishing you a creative and heart filled year... from hot as hell Sydney!
What a lovely image you've conjured up,Ro. We had a lovely sunny day here today, but it was really cold, what I'd give for some warmth.
I can just imagine being in your studio with a quiet breeze.... almost! But one look out our windows checks me back into reality. Have a lovely New Years and thanks for all the creative inspiration this year! Roxanne
I am boiling up here.
Happy New Year to you and Steve and all the family.
mmm I love your stars. I'm enjoying catching up with blogs after some time away and it's lovely to see your bright colours, I did always love your papers and journals.
