A snapshot of plants in our yard & fairy lights

This entire corner was redone from scratch. The sign reads “Bienvenidos Mi Casa es su Casa”

Slowly recovering from the hurricane.

We put up oranges for the orioles but we are getting other birds visiting as well.

A pile of sunning pups.

I put up a few of my large ornaments to make it just a bit more festive.  Hmm I really could have made more of an effort to be in focus.  I like to think of this as my being relaxed 🙂

One in my lap and the other at my feet.

Ready to just sit and relax and enjoy.

Cozy inside and out.

Thankfully the girls only have to deal with sand.

    What a gorgeous job you’ve done with your decorating. And the girls look so happy in that sunshine. Merry Christmas from the Dixons.

      Thank Sandie. Hope that you are well and enjoying every day. The girls are happy here but we are rather concerned about how crazy they go when together on the beach. We may have to walk them separately the entire winter.

    The place looks great! And now that the work is done it looks like you have finally found some time to relax, read and enjoy the beach!

      Yes we are doing well in the few hours allowed to relaxation. We do have to water, fertilized, etc, etc but we are most happy to be here. Nothing to do but eat, drink and be merry for the next few days. Special Christmas wishes to you and yours.

    Wow looks just lovely! Enjoy as here it’s snowing and has been all morning…we have shovelled 3 times already! Feliz Navidad to you 4???

      Thank you. I am keeping up with what is happening weather wise back home. So different than last winter. Just sit back, enjoy Christmas and wait until the snow melts. NO Swede to go out and shovel.

    Looks very festive. Merry Christmas to you both.

    • contessa says:

      Well other than the added large Xmas decorations that is our normal outdoor setup. However the coloured lights do give us a very festive atmosphere inside.
