December Diary

Only one more week to Christmas!

Two more weeks to the year’s end!

So very soon a New Year, namely 2019, is going to begin.

I still have a lot of memories how last year ended.

The above post from December 2017 brings back memories what our place looked like one year ago. I find it is interesting to compare last year’s pictures with this year’s December pictures! did-on-the-day- of- the epiphanie

On Saturday, the 23rd of December 2017, we went with son Martin to Berry for morning coffee, then to Kiama for an early fish and chips lunch, and later to Shellharbour for ice-cream. After we have had our delicious ice-cream, Martin drove us to the Beach Farm with is now a beautiful public area  close by the sea.

Our Christmas Season started with Sunday, the 24th of December, when the family gathered at our place for our customary Christmas Eve celebrations. Matthew and Caroline had arranged that Yittah, Matthew’s mum could join us for Christmas Eve and stay overnight at our place. This was really great, that Yittah could join us!

I think the link to the above post leads to some pictures that I published about Christmas in 2017. But now I do not want to forget to publish already a few pictures that I took over the last weekend! Here they are. No sorry, it did not work.

Apparently I did not pay attention and the photos went right to the top. They are of some pictures that Caroline and Matthew attached to the wall for us yesterday, on the 3rd of  Advent Sunday. Some pictures are in new frames! We are very happy with the work they did for us. They spent many hours of work doing all this. The four pictures in the vestibule  are all Berlin pictures. So we call this wall our ‘Berlin Wall’ now.

The other picture in the living-room looks great in this new frame.

It is this pictures by Sir Edward John Poynter: “The visit of the Queen of Sheba to King Solomon”

I think I leave the publishing of more pictures to another day. The settings are different from what they used to be. This is why I have difficulty finding my way around with inserting pictures and some other problems with changes that I have to get used to first.

  4. It’s always fun to look back and see what we were up to last year at this time… or the year before that. I have a 5 year diary (5 years all on one page. I am into the third year now and really enjoy the nostalgia. Going back to 2017 (or even 2012) on my blogs here on WP is an experience much like you are having. Yes, time flies!
