Tropical storms have been coming almost every day lately.
Sometimes with hail...

At last the grass is becoming green once again.
Yes, finished the presents...
Our little Canadian grandson, C2, is fascinated by kookaburras, after a real-life encounter with one in our own personal gum tree.
I put these two under the Christmas tree because they were part of my father's collection...and C2 likes to play with them.
So glad I didn't throw them away when we cleaned out Dad's room..
Dear M sent me a beautiful Nativity Christmas card.
(They are not easy to find these days, sadly)
Another friend, also known as M, gave me this sweet dish...
Love it too.
Perhaps for chocolates on our Christmas table?
For my recent birthday, Mr C spoilt me with this beautiful fine glass cake stand and cloche.
Always wanted one of these.
The Christmas cake will look spectacular under there...
Counting my Blessings, thank you all for these special gifts.
I'll pop back on Christmas Eve, but meantime, I am off to the kitchen to cook up a
Be good, and Santa will come.
