Preparations 2022

Busy preparing for Christmas now. It will suddenly be Sunday, we all know. You may be doing much the same things.

The weekend before last, I grabbed these first couple of photos down at Dartmouth harbo(u)r. Initially, as we walked along the edge of “the boat float”…

…we could see the town Christmas tree in the Royal Avenue Gardens.

Next, having walked by the tree…

…I turned around and tried to get a decent shot of the tree, and the businesses and their lights, on the other side of the road.

Well, I tried anyhow.

Yesterday, we were in Exeter – about 40 minutes’ drive away – and at one point strolled by the cathedral…

…which was unfortunately obscured somewhat by the Christmas market set up around it.

Am I a great photographer, or what? LOL!

And, yes, last weekend, the lighted Christmas jumper had to come out…

I call it a “one joke” jumper – meaning it is amusing briefly once in being turned on, but after a few minutes it is annoying particularly to others in the room… and I turn off the lights. LOL!

It is a new house this year – so this our first Christmas in it.

Despite it being about 10c (the Devon coast is NOT the Catskills, of course), I got a fire going in the new wood stove that we had had installed a few weeks ago…

In the last week I also did quite a bit of new writing. (When “inspiration” strikes, you seize it!) And I am actually pleased with a tiny bit of it. That is how this writing stuff goes. LOL!

However, I am not ready to share any of it on here just yet. I have plenty of other stuff out there that may be read. Don’t be impatient! 😉

Unless something TRULY DRAMATIC happens, I probably won’t have another post up here before Christmas. So if you celebrate I hope you have a good one, wherever you are.

All the best. 🙂
