I’m feeling quite excited right now. I have one more morning of teaching, well, school, and then it’s time for the long summer holidays.
The year has really flown by and I haven’t been here as much as I’d like. I’m looking forward to having more time now, writing more stories about summer past and present. Just like this one I wrote elsewhere a week or so ago about our family camping in the 1950s. I’m the wee cutie with the ribbon in my hair 🙂
It probably seems strange for many of you, thinking about summer for Christmas. But believe me, when you don’t know any better, it’s just the way it should be.
I responded to a challenge on Bubblews the other day, trying to convince another user why Christmas in New Zealand was the best. Why don’t you check it out for yourself and see if you agree.
And, just in case you’re still not convinced, let me leave you with a photo of the pohutukawa, New Zealand’s Christmas tree, coming in to full boom now, just in time for Christmas.
So, now I’m feeling the heat, so I’ll go and look out some of your stories about snow 🙂
At first, when I saw the word ‘Summer’ in your heading, I thought I plopped onto an old post. Silly me. I hate snow, so of course I live in upstate New York. I’m envious of your sun and summer.
Wishing you and those you love a wonderful, happy, and healthy holiday season and new year.
Hi skinnyuz2b I’ve been absent from here for far too long and am so pleased some people like you are still around 🙂 summer isn’t doing all that well here in NZ right now 😦
