A hot week.

It is going to be too hot.
This week we are expecting 40 deg.  Granny does not like it when it gets so hot and neither do I.
I am dreaming of snow  making everything white. Twinkling lights and fireplaces keeping every one warm. Roasting Chestnuts, making snow men and family all singing Christmas carols. With people wearing fur coats.
Nup!!!! It is nothing like that in Adelaide. It is so hot I had to take my Christmas hat off and put my bathers on. After sipping this cool drink, I might just pop under the sprinkler on the lawn.

Often people go down to the beach Christmas day in Australia. We don't because we have a lovely time catching up with all the family, for a great Christmas lunch.

How do you celebrate Christmas? What food do you eat?

We have turkey, and vegetables, then of course, the Christmas Pudding that you saw Granny and me make along time ago.

I am whispering this...Granny was cranky because she couldn't find her Christmas bible.
Well it is not really a bible, but it is a very important book.
It has all the addresses of all the people she sends cards to. Plus what she gave who last year, so she doesn't give the same thing...hmmmm she forgets...

Well the place was turned upside down. Lots of cupboards were cleaned out while she was looking, and I was keeping well out the way.

Hooray , today we found it. It was like a big celebration when she found it. Even I got big hugs.
So today Granny is Happy.

I am sure I will get two pieces of toast with Honey and Peanut butter for supper tonight.
See you all next week.

Welcome nd 1808 we hope you enjoy reading our stories.
This picture makes me think of cool teddies all making snow men.
That is not happening here.

My thought for the day.
"A candle loses none of its light
by lighting another candle."


  1. Hi Wilbur,

    Well, on Friday morning it was in the teens here, and let me tell you, that is cold. But it does make the Christmas season wonderful.

    Next time we get snow I'll make a snowball just for you and send a picture. We would have so much fun playing in the snow, you could make a snow fort.

    Heaps of Hugs
    Prudence ♥

  2. Merry Christmas .
    It's cold here no snow but a lot of rain.
    Hugs Corina

  3. Oh Wilbur, it's strangely warm here too, it's been between 11 and 14 C all week, far too warm for this time of year! Hope that drink cooled you down, obviously it gave a cooler head for bible searching ;o)

  4. Hello Wilbur, it is cool, dampish and grey here in the UK at present. Not cold enough to snow. We live by the sea so we don't often get snow. It melts because the air is salty. It goes dark about 3.30 in the afternoon.
    We spend Christmas with the children and grandchildren, who live nearby. We all eat too much which makes us say 'OOOF!' a lot, but we just cannot resist all the lovely food!
    Here's wishing you and Granny a very happy Christmas. xx

  5. Yes, very unseasonal weather in the UK, mild and damp but that won't last! We have a traditonal turkey dinner but this year are having beef wellington on Christmas day and then the traditional meal on Boxing day.

  6. Christmas in bathers... sounds really not familiar to us. But according to the weather forecasts we won't have snow either around here in Germany, and for a German winter it's quite warm with up to 10 degrees Celsius. Well, we won't miss the snow anyway, this only means shoveling for Birgit... and more time to enjoy and celebrate Christmas! ;O) We're glad Granny find her important book and we hope you all stay cool and enjoy the season!

  7. Oh my! That is NOT the book to lose at Christmas. This is our first year of keeping one. We have started several and lost all of them.. :(
    It's toasty warm where we are too. It ONLY HAS ONE WEEK to get cold..just ONE week!

  8. Dearest Kay,
    Lovely story again and sorry that you had to turn your place upside down for finding that special book. In a way it is crazy that we have become like this for Christmas. Both of us do celebrate it very peaceful, with Mass at 23:00 o'clock with lots of caroling and candles. Than going home and next day have a quiet day with good food. No turkey, that is more for the Thanksgiving dinner, 4th Thursday in November for the USA.
    Hope you enjoy your family time and manage the heat.
    Tomorrow evening (our time) I will launch my post about a different giving, about Our Life in Indonesia...

  9. great story! Wishing Kay and her family and you little bear a Merry Christmas and I send you all my best wishes for 2014! xxx Pink

  12. Happy Christmas dear Kay!

    I wish you all the best!!!


  13. Here we are leaving a comment so very late! Our computer is still driving us a little nutty!

    This Christmas our celebration was a quiet one as all the little ones have moved 2000 miles away. Mama did bake pies and had a pretty tree. We gave her lots of extra bear hugs and kept her cheery.



I love to read your comments. Thanks for taking the time
