Sumer is icumen in*

Well it’s the first of December, which, by the way such things are measured here in the Antipodes, is the first day of Summer.

It is also [ usually ] the day upon which I begin blogging the Christmas House Tour.

Not so this year, my sweets.

On December 1, 2011, and again in 2012, I managed to kill the then-current camera[s], and because of that, have been summarily banned from anything involving photography upon this date into the foreseeable future.

Instead I will share with you pix taken yesterday, immediately prior to the arrival of guests for Miss Abigail Rose’s first birthday. [ the actual Natal Anniversay is December 3rd ]

    What beautiful grandchildren you make. I’m going to miss your Christmas house tour this year. I’ve just finished putting up the decorations here. It took me a week to get it all done!

        The core of your writing while appearing renslaaboe initially, did not settle perfectly with me after some time. Someplace within the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but only for a short while. I still have a problem with your jumps in logic and you would do nicely to fill in all those breaks. In the event that you can accomplish that, I could certainly be amazed.
