Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone!
It’s been two months since my last post, as work and life got in the way of my blogging. Hope everyone is doing well!
I’ve been playing again with some of the templates in Photo Lab, making myself giggle by dropping in some of the Richard pics on my phone. (Sorry, I can’t remember where the pictures came from or who made the templates on Photo Lab but would give credit if I could.) Poor Proctor looks mighty cold there…
This one of the somber, proper Mr. Thornton made me laugh the most…
We’ve been decorating the house, and I have a couple of new friends out front…
Even my dog is wearing his festive gear for the holiday, courtesy of his groomer at the doggy salon…We went to the annual German Christmas market on the first day without rain in a while. The market is really good, with lots of crafts and trinkets and, of course, food!
I was trying to find a good version of one of my favourite Christmas carols, “Oh Holy Night”, and came across this live-in-studio version..
What a voice! I guess I haven’t been listening to country radio much or I would probably know her. (Just for the record, while I love “Hallelujah”, it is definitely not a Christmas song.)
Another of my favourite Christmas songs is “Little Drummer Boy”. My mother always hated it — something about the pa-rum-pa-pum-pum’s — but I’ve always found it quite poignant. Here is a wonderful version sung by Jennifer Nettles with Idina Menzel.
I hope each of you has a wonderful Christmas and/or time with your family.
