Happy Holly-days


Thank you for your visit here on Christmas Eve, I think it's the best one of the holly-days. Hanno and I wish you love, happiness and peace and a very happy Christmas with those you love. We hope all your sweethearts, whether they be large or small, gather close to you this Christmas. Thank you for being a part of our world and this blog this year. Your comments have made me happy, smile, frown and go cross-eyed and they've shown me that all of us belong to a huge, world-wide simple living community. That motivates me to carry on sharing what we know and what we do here.

Enjoy what you do to its fullest. Forget your worries and make happy memories.

  1. For the first year in a long time, I've actually looked forward to Christmas. It may well be that I'm starting to settle in to living simply, and combined with moving out of the chaos of Sydney, I'm a much calmer person.

    I'm writing this as my first batch of apricot jam simmers on the stove, using apricots given to me by a generous person who couldn't use all those fruit on her trees. Wish me luck!

    My family will all be here tomorrow, and we will enjoy each other's company, and eat too much good food!

    Merry Christmas to you, Rhonda. I love reading your blog, and the comments that everyone makes.

    Enjoy

  6. Merry Christmas Rhonda, to you and your family.

    It is very early on Christmas Eve morning. A storm has been raging all night, here in a wintery Southern England. As soon as it`s light I shall be outside checking on the animals.

    Wishing a happy Christmas holiday in the sun to Down to Earth followers south of the Equator!

I keep learning new things when reading your blog (and book) and it has me thinking about issues that sometimes had never crossed my mind before.Thanks a lot.

  30. It's still Christmas Eve here in Indiana. The snow has all been washed away by lots of rain and it's very cold but Christmas none the less.

    Hope your day goes well and everyone gets their Christmas Wish.
