    With my family today, one person who spent Christmas in New Zealand talked about being so shocked to see a Santa perspiring. I thought of you having dinner in the heat of summer..and forgot to imagine: Christmas dinner outside. Wonderful – we’ll be dodging downpours. Better than a dump of snow.

      Santa got VERY sweaty yesterday πŸ˜‰

    Your table looks divine, Cindy.
    We’ve gone through the bucketing down rain to the faint mist of rain on and off the entire day; right now it’s rather dark and gloomy outside, so our plans for our little traditional Christmas picnic in our Botanic Gardens was laid to rest. Lunch was had semi al-fresco on our verandah instead and it was just as good with the scent of the different roses and herbs πŸ™‚
    A very Merry Christmas to you and yours.

      Thanks Liane, I hope yours was warm and abundant!

        I was blessed with some lovely gifts, Cin. I am much warmer now indeed! Got some nice furry boots and the exact scarfs and hats that I eyed in the shop and “Santa” wasn’t even with me on that day. BOY! was I surprised!! haha Don’t know how he knows my size but everything fits PERFECTLY! (In the US I wear a number 9 shoe! Good heavens! I’ll just rather not look under the sole then. haha

    I thought hootenannies were totally American. Or, does it mean something else in SA?

    1. theonlycin says:

      Yes, hootenanny is unknown here, I just love the word, it sounds happy πŸ™‚

  15. pinkpolkadot says:

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks, I had to keep it really simple so everyone had space to eat πŸ™‚

  16. Chloe says:
