summer days...

1 December 2009 49 comments

I recently purchased this fabulous 2010 Calendar by talented artist Lisa Lorenz ( ..... and I'm hoping that 2010 will be as bright and colourful as Lisa's Calendar...
Lisa (Lariviere), Lorenz was born in Montreal, Canada and has been drawing and painting exuberantly since childhood and her talent expands over many years. She has recently moved back to her native Canada and now lives in Ottawa.

It's the first day of Summer over here in Australia and the weather is proving to be really unpredictable with heatwaves at the weekend and a drop in temperatures since then...
I will be taking a break until New Year so I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of my online friends a happy, healthy and safe Christmas and New Year...

I couldn't resist posting this song for my final Music Monday this year....

See you all in 2010.....

    Yikes, it was -5C here in the UK last night I envy you. Lovely, uplifting music from Mr Clayderman - good choice.

  • Diane 1.12.09

    What a lovely calendar!

    And how envious am I to hear you talking about summer! The rain has finally stopped here and we woke this morning to a frost! White fields and an ice covered car. Marvellous. And the rain is forecast to return.

    I wouldn't mind winter so much if it was cold but sunny - grumble, grumble, grumble....

    Have a good break, a wonderful Christmas and I wish you a joyful, successful, fantastic New Year. xx

    tempered days
    with summer's rays
    balmy winds blow
    no memories of snow.
    the yule tide floats
    on bright painted boats.
    holly and greens
    from bow to stern
    these are the Christmases
    for which I yearn.

    The Muse
