I have been missing my Aussie mates this past week. Lots of parties and friends dropping by .... used to be my Christmas times .. but here in the snow its all different.  No Aussie friends visiting ... no parties .. just quiet, reflective hours watching the snow come down, snuggled up under a quilt or a fluffy blanket, drinking a yummy hot cup of tea and having some banana bread.  I've overloaded on the Christmas movies .. some good, most bad ... but they are all fun and I am constantly amazed at the homes they have in these movies. Everything is stunningly coordinated and filled to the brim with all the December trimmings like tinsel and bows down the bannisters of the stairs,  the biggest trees one could ever imagine, decorations to die for, cookies on the kitchen counters on santa plates, lights flickering all over the place and of course the outfits they are wearing.  Wow!   Fun but not very "normal".   Now its come and gone for another year.  And I'll be another year older soon in January. 

On my travels this morning through my files looking for a new background I found some wonderful photos of animals all smooching and being kind to each other. Let's hope the world can do the same this year and treat each other properly.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. It all comes and goes so quickly.  Ours was quiet until the evening when we met up with friends and had a good old time ..  One of our beloved family members ...  (my dear sweet old grand dog Chewie) passed away just before the Christmas week  and I will miss him terribly.  He had a spectacular life filled with adventures and the love of a beautiful family which he cherished and adored.... RIP sweetheart ... I'm sure you are jumping around in heaven with my little cuties, Boswell, Wilbur and Dozer.

I'm missing being able to go down the yard to sit with my friends there .. pretty little hungry birds, silly and sweet squirrels, deer of course, a cat or two .. there is always something going on especially when everyone seems to be so hungry.  But I don't dare venture out onto the ice with my crutches.

Sat up for a long time early this morning watching the hostage situation back home in Sydney, Australia. Such a sad outcome for those two hostages who lost their lives ... but I guess it could have been very much worse.

Stay safe ... a pretty christmas desktop wallpaper for you computer..

Still healing from my bad fall on the ice. Can't walk and can't sit at the computer but I did want to wish everyone who visits my blog .. a very happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year.  Stay safe ...
Best wishes from Jana

I had a bad fall on the ice last week.... now I'm on crutches.  Not sure what is broken .. had x-rays on Friday now just have to wait for the results.  Worst of all .. my dear old hubby wasn't here to help me so it was a trying time ... can't do much ... just waiting to recover ...
