Christmas Bells Will be Ringing

December 6, 2017

Somehow Christmas bells will ring eventually.  And the days are fast approaching.  Next I start 002my day with a  hot cup in one hand as I looked out of my window.  And I focused on the trees standing along the walkway.  As a result of the weather they have faded with no leaves or flowers.  

Unalike, in many countries flowers and trees bloom all year round.  Apart from this, I watched the children walked by on their way to school.  And they are wrapped up cozily.  Likewise I thought it is good to work from home in the warm and feeling wonderful. 055 - used for Christmas 2017 at post - Christmas is Running so FastHowever I have not yet decided my theme for this Christmas.  But I think that it will be simple and my list cut short.  In addition I love Baileys as well as Martinis.  And not forgetting my French wine, the Jurancon Panache, I love its fruity taste.   After all my daughter likes fruit cake and I treated her to one.206Usually I love this time of year and everything that comes with it.  At the same time it is joyous to see friends and families that we haven’t met through the year.  Meanwhile I am busy sewing some traditional decorative hearts.   And I will share the pictures after they have been hung on the tree.Furthermore I’ve been talking about a book  I wanted to read.  And some two weeks ago my friend brought me the book.   Likewise the usual habit when two friends meet.  Unlike it’s all about laughs, families, children, gossip and home life.  However this book was published in 1985 and I was a teenager then.   But I’ve never heard of this book until lately – shame!219 However Love in the Time of Cholera will be my last book of 2017.  Therefore I am closing my post with this lovely picture of my decorations of Christmas 2015.Christmas 2015 picture - used for - Christmas is Running So Fast - at Christmas 2017 PostEventually I will be back with more decorating ventures.  And I wish you some great days of Christmas Carols!  See you soon…061

    I am so behind in reading all your (and others’) great blog posts and lo and behold as I’m finally catching up, I run across my name. Imagine my shocked, but smiling face. Thank you Juli for even considering reading my works. I’m happy to send a book to you and keep the book giving tradition going. Please connect with me offline. Bless you! You’re such a sweetheart.

    Awww. You are so sweet to give my book a shout. Sweet. I love your photos. They’re always so colorful and beautiful – right out of a home magazine, and your reflections of the season and the street outside your window is lovely. Thanks so much, Juli, for my morning smile. 🙂 <3

      Thank you very much Diana. I am glad that I made you smile especially in the morning. I wish some of my pictures could be featured in a magazine, maybe one day, who knows. Yes Your books are ready for 2018. I am not far from finishing my last 2017 book “Love in the Time of cholera.” Such a nice story – (I wish there was someone somewhere waiting for me) hahaha. Well Diana it’s been nice reading from you. I wish you a wonderful week!
