:holly2: merry christmas eve!:holly1:
yes folks, it's that time!
weellll..... it is here in australia! :icon_cheesygrin: :santa5: :icon_cool: :santa1:
tonight we'll be attending midnight mass at the cathedral in the city, preceeded by the singing of carols at 2300. before that we plan on driving past the houses all decked out and lit up for christmas and have a ganders at the pretty lights. the gifts are all wrapped, the food is all bought and ready for preparing and cooking tomorrow. the christmas music is playing on the cd player. my brother phoned and wished us merry christmas & invited us to visit in the coming days and meet up with my niece's & nephew's, (including grand niece's & nephew's :icon_lol: ), who are visiting from interstate and we've not seen in a few years. even though he won't be home for christmas, ds is still in country and hasn't been deployed overseas (yet!), sooooo we have much to be joyful about!
and ................. we've had rain!!!
the weather is cooler. why, i've even got the heater on! in the middle of an australian summer! :icon_rolleyes: :icon_cool: :icon_lol: incredible! tomorrow is predicted to be another cool day too. great for cooking the turkey! hopefully other states will also receive good rain and the bushfires will abate.
wishing everyone a safe-happy-healthy-joyous-christmas!
cheers.................... :santa5: :ball: :santa1:
