Do you want to build a snowman

This is the snowman that my class of toddlers made for our center wide

The painted her their favorite colours.

She looks a bit like a tourist whose been drinking on some island beach all day.

Oh little town

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 

O little town of Bethlehem how still we see thee lie

above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by

yet in thy dark streets shineth the ever lasting light

the hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.

a lady's desk

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I've been longing for snow. 

There's no sign of any in the near future

I have no doubt that we will have our fair share of it soon enough

so for now I will just have to wait....


I've had this Little table for about 5 years now. 

It was a cast off from my mum when she downsized.

I use it as a diminutive desk

and place an odd jaberwocky of things upon it. 

seashells and stones collected from walks on the beach,

books that I've half-read, a funny looking plant that my daughter gave me 

and a hobbit-ish pipe that turned up in a box when we moved here.

The little gnome fellow has become a favorite of our cat, Tucker,

and I'm afraid he plays with it quite fiercely.

I'm not sure if the little thing will last till Christmas...

Tucker tosses it up into the air and then stands on his hind paws to catch it.  


I was in a rather nasty car accident on Friday evening. 

There were no injuries , praise God,

but my car is out of working order for...well....we don't really know yet.

We'll be Ubering it to the train station .in the morning

and catching a bus to get home.

Hopefully, it will be a quick and painless fix.

There you have it...the good, the fun, and the random

though I'm not really sure how much of them I have offered here.

The light of love

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

But rather the hidden character of the heart,
expressed in the imperishable beauty
of a gentle and calm disposition,
which is precious in the sight of God.

O Tannenbaum

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The trees are at the Christmas tree stand just across the park 

from our house. 

It's like a Hallmark movie watching all the families 

loading a tree on their car and driving home to celebrate.
