I wanted to wish everyone who celebrates, a Merry Christmas! :-) It's Christmas Eve as I write this and I have to say that I really adore this day. There's a glow that bounces off of everything. You can enjoy the comfort and festive atmosphere of the holiday and still have Christmas Day to look forward to.

I have a few photos to share that I've taken over the last few days. They're of the view out of one of our windows. Here's a little Christmas greeting from us at the Yellow House.

And I just wanted to share this one below because the lights came out looking squiggly and funny and I like weird ;-)

And finally, here's a view from the other day when we had some snow. I thought that it looked like somebody had put whipped cream on everything with the way that the snow was hanging everywhere.

We got a few treats from home in the mail yesterday, courtesy of my family. Some things I haven't opened, but this was out in the open and we've been enjoying them very much indeed. I LOVE these candies! They're peppermint nougat and having this taste from home is so wonderful! Brit Boy tasted them for the first time and he likes them too. So we're quite pepperminty around

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Christmas and that you're able to enjoy some time with the ones you love. Until next time...all the best! :-)

Dori, how was your night?! Certainly very cold and very hot here. But this time of year, wherever it is, has something special that makes everything will be better.

Today has a wonderful show on Copacabana Beach. The singer is Roberto Carlos. The whole of Brazil loves him for over five decades. He's like Frank Sinatra! Or Julio Iglesias.

Last year, his 50th Years' singing, in MaracanĂ£!
