Not from want of trying, I haven’t been able to link in with any of the previous Scavenger Hunts hosted by Hawthorn this year. However December’s hunts are looking a little different, posting a picture on Friday’s instead. So I’m linking in with this first Friday’s Hawthorns December Photo Hunt of: Decorations – a favourite one – was it inherited, did your kids make it or was it one you bought on a whim and love dearly?
This year, the one decoration I was looking forward to get out of storage and putting on the Christmas tree was this Statue of Liberty decoration I bought from a 5th Avenue store in Manhattan, New York City!
Looking at the smiling statue, surrounded by twinkling lights makes me reminisce on a wonderful trip David and I took last December.
Day Thirty: Today’s photo prompt is goals for 2019 (if any). I tend not to set any new year resolutions, save disappointment when I don’t achieve them. However for 2019 I will continue my walking, and make a determined effort to get to 2000 miles in the #walk1000miles challenge. I was so close this year!
Day Twenty-nine: Today’s photo prompt is, this year – a reflection.
On reflection 2018 has been pretty much a perfect year! There may have been the odd blip (e.g. like the burst water pipe) but otherwise there have been many more positives to glean from the year than negatives. Below find a small gallery of pictures from the year.
Day Twenty-eight: Today’s photo prompt is grateful for? I am grateful for so many things, family, pets, being healthy and able to explore the world around me, but mostly I am grateful for the love of David. Without David I would not be able to achieve any of the highlights from this year (nor any other year). Thank you David for being amazing!!
Christmas-time is about spending time with loved ones. I spent my Christmas Day with David and our parents. I cooked us a meal with lots of vegetables and for the meat-eaters ham and turkey. Afterwards there was cake and a game of Top Trumps courtesy of RSPB crackers.
Day Twenty-four: It’s Christmas Eve, my favourite time of the year! I still feel all the excitement for the day before Christmas as I did as a child.
There’s nothing better than to sing Carols around this time of year, which is why we attended the recent Carol Service at the local church. It was a bit different from services I remembered but still a nice way to celebrate the season.
