Wet Friday

It's a wet old day here in old Brisbane town today and I for one am loving feeling cool and comfortable!!! My only prayer is that my fellow Aussies in the bush that really need it are getting the same precious gift.
Yesterday I received some beautiful blooms from DD. Such a gorgeous colour and they have a beautiful perfume as well...
They were quite tight buds but have all now started opening right up.
Gorgeous!!!! Speaking of which a cute little reindeer dropped into visit me as well...
Miss Erin was not relinquishing them for anything!
Love a new ornament for my tree which was beautifully made by my friend Lorel. I don't even want to know how it was made, I am leaving it as a mystery to ponder each year...

I have finally got around to getting a photo of my Christmas tree.
We need more tinsel....No 1 Grandson placed it on along with a couple of other little ornaments and he reminded me yesterday that I hadn't put it on yet. Apparently tinsel is pretty naff when it comes to elegant decorating but I have decided that it makes me happy and I am going to have it (thing is one should read the meterage on packet before purchasing it) also as one who does not buy new decorations each year I figure that little bit of tinsel is going to last me a verrrry long time!
Have a lovely day and I wish you a great weekend.

Namaste and Blessings,
