SINCE THE LAST BLOG, the year end is fast approaching and with the temperature gauge dropping dramatically everyone is running around gettind ready for the long winter ahead.
WE went from this
to this in 6 weeks
We have had 4 mountain bear sightings ( and I’m not talking about the ones you see at closing time on a Saturday night in Glasgow coming out of the Market Bar!) ; one even in our back yard stocking up on the persimmons before hibernation.
We also had the primary school kids marathon where we had to cheer them on with our flags
It was also the time to reap the late autumn harvest and our resident grumpy farmer was busy preparing the daikon for pickling and pick some mushrooms
and stock up the woodpile
and time to light the irori hearth
WITH XMAS NOT TOO FAR AWAY with the help of our neighbours decided to put on a festive party for the local community and invited the school kids to come and dress the xmas tree. Boy that was fun. These kids really had the Christmas spirit, far from the commercial hype that saturates everything these days.
BOSS was having a ball too!
Our Xmas party was a hoot and even a visit fron Santa!
Honey roast ham on the menu
Tree waiting to be lit up.
The kids got to meet Sanata
and toast some marshmallows!
So its a very Merry Christmas to all and now its time for bed!
LOOKING FORWARD TO SEE WHAT THE NEW YEAR MAY BRING
HAPPY 2017 !!
