changed the header again

















... been taking some photos of our tree and ornaments using a 5 M size and the candle setting.... I like the soft colours and glow of just the little white tree lights ... didn't get the face of my little Santa quite as focused as it could have been...I'll try again another night... I'm having to learn about my tripod all over again. I probably only use the thing once a year..

We got the outside garland up today... and, I was supposed to be having a great and busy baking day...but, my stomach had other plans. Mostly a tea, toast and nap day it seems... oh, and a chance to pop in and out of several of your blogs. Always love doing that.. and today it was handy to take my mind off my churning gut...

Now, I think I just about feel up to popcorn and a movie... further baking has been forwarded to Sunday....

Beautiful sunny day yet again. Lots of sunny days in this area. It's warmer now... only -6C ... so a huge jump up from the bitingly cold of those -32C days..















It is so quiet...I guess everybody is nose to the grindstone trying to get last minute things done...attending parties... going crazy... etc.... don't forget to take some time for yourself....have a sit down with a nice cup of tea and sample somebody's baking..
