socials, lunches, parties, shopping, baking, gift giving, concerts, Christmas Carols, decorations, egg nog lattes and gingerbread houses are just a few of the highlights that I savour and enjoy.
It is a busy time of year.
Maintaining balance and calm we like taking a drive in the country and having a healthy lunch in a waterfront bistro.
These beautiful swans look pretty content nibbling in the farmer's field.
You can see the pumpkins in the back ground and the raindrops on the window of Mr. HB's car.
Caesar salad with kale and romaine lettuce.
I spy with my little eye a wee kitten in an Advent calendar...
in one of the shops along Oak Bay Avenue.
I have a serious crush on these charming wee cute and cuddly creatures!
Christmas Tree in the lobby of the Laurel Point Hotel where we took in the annual decorated gingerbread house display.
The baking and decorating of the gingerbread displays is quite impressive.
I remember trying to make one years ago and it listed so far to the right that it fell apart!
Neighbours are decorating...
the streets looks quite bright and festive.
a gold bauble blew down in the gale force winds...
I stopped on my walk to capture the image not realizing that I would be visible in the reflection.
I'll be posting sporadically over the next weeks as there are so many wonderful and engaging activities to enjoy.
Right now I have my nose firmly planted in Louise Penny's latest novel
the Inspector Gamache mystery series..."The Nature of the Beast" is brilliant!
If you have never read Louise's books start with the first in the series and work your way up.
She uses the same characters and they develop over time.
Thank you for stopping by...
