Christmas SkyWatch - Peace to the World

Wishes of Peace and Good Will
to all my blog friends, and everyone on this wonderful
Earth of ours.

Independent of your beliefs and whatever event
you celebrate at this time of the year,
may you all be blessed with peace and love
wherever you are.

the sky behind my house overlooking part of the farm

small portion of a 5 metre tree the grandchildren mounted 
and decorated
it is quite a splendid sight

the latest member of the family: 
my daughter's new sheep-dog,
a surprise present from her daughter

a tiny mite that instantly recognised her mistress
already (sometimes) sits on command
and speaks when asked (sometimes)

young Kubbie is growing quicker than grass
after just three days already dangles over the side of my lap
as I watch my granddaughter wrapping even more presents
to join those already banked under the tree

the little glass church that has graced some family Christmas
tree for some 50 years.
Luckily I shared my old decorations with my daughter
more than three decayed ago when mine were lost in the 
bushfire in the following year.

It is always a joy for me to see it in my daughter's house

I hope you all had as wonderful a Christmas as I had,
nothing to prepare, no tree to trim, just my presents to wrap 
and give lap room to the tiny puppy
and enjoy it all.

If you are travelling, or not, stay safe
this holiday season.
