Not much time for a post today but I thought I would share a few Christmas photos and some other photos from around town yesterday.
We took a lovely walk to a side of the peninsula that I had never been to before.
Although the autumn leaves are gone for the most part it was still very lovely.
This area has a unique connection to a famous author that I will tell you about in a later post.
This is the street where Rob has his study space.
I just love the look of the buildings on the bailey.
The kids were in rare form yesterday. I think it has something to do with putting a camera in their face.
I think most kids act goofy because they are sure how to smile on command.
Joshua was most of all the silly one. Perhaps it is his winter flat cap causing all the sillys.
Well finally a few good shots.
We thank our friend Clift for taking a study break and snapping a few photos of us.
- The holly and the ivy, when they are both full grown,
- Of all the trees that are in the wood, the holly bears the crown.
- Oh, the rising of the sun and the running of the deer,
- The playing of the merry organ, sweet singing in the choir.
- The holly bears a blossom as white as lily flower,
- And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ to be our sweet saviour
- The holly bears a berry as red as any blood,
- And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ to do poor sinners good.
- The holly bears a prickle as sharp as any thorn,
- And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ on Christmas Day in the morn.
- The holly bears a bark as bitter as any gall,
- And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ for to redeem us all.
