White Christmas

There's no chance of a white Christmas up here in Northern California. In fact the days are lovely and sunny and we sat outside for lunch yesterday.


But it wouldn't be Christmas without some thoughts of snow..... and what better way to do that than by watching my favorite Christmas carol you tube.  Still makes me laugh, every year:

 "I'm dreaming of a White Christmas"


Here are a few more "white Christmas" ideas to help get you through the day (- photos via Monica):

 Remember to relax and be playful

If you need to get a way for break, find a good hiding spot 

Prepare your strategy carefully for Christmas games

Don't forget to phone those special people

Enjoy time playing with the kids

Hoping you have a wonderful Christmas
lots of love

Take time to smell the flowers on Fridays

How long is it since you've sat on the lawn and made a daisy chain?


I hope its not too long....and maybe if it is, you'll find time this year to do just that...whether by yourself or with someone else.



I remember sitting with my sister making them when we were little - but I always got frustrated as she had nails and so could split the stems, but I used to bite my nails so couldn't ever do it!


I think with these large daisies in the photos from our garden, even without nails, I'd have been able to do it!  And think what a great big chain I could have made!


These daisies have multiplied so much. I hardly remember us having any before - but this year, they seem to just be happy showing their smiling faces to the sunshine.



I have some friends coming round for lunch tomorrow so I have some daisies for the table and also some in the napkin rings.  Don't think we'll be making daisy chains however....but you never know!!!


Did you take time to stop and smell the flowers this week?  Spending time in nature is good for our health, so how about planning a daisy chain party this year?  Invite a few friends around, sit on the lawn, chatting and making pretty little daisy chains! If you do - please invite me. I'd love to join in. :-D
