The first Christmas as ‘empty nesters’

it was decided to use a smaller 4 foot tall tree.  

The two who had flown the nest

were not impressed.

enjoyable…but different

See the present at the back of the tree.

I wrapped it and it’s there for a reason.  🙂

Why?

Just picture trembling hands, sticky tape,

scissors and wrapping paper,

all of which has a mind of its own.  😀

Although I have not visited this house this year…

 

…I am assuming that its

Christmas light display…

…is similar…

…to previous years.

 

This is our 2020 Christmas tree.

Captured with a 5 second exposure

and the help of Photoshop

to lighten shadows.

Christmas Tree 2020.

Like the rest of 2020 Christmas is going

to be different this year, not so much

due to COVID rather  personal circumstances. 

Our eldest is in New Zealand for Christmas

awaiting the birth of the first child. 

No 2 Soon is going to lunch with his in-laws,

however, we will see him on Christmas Eve

for Carols and again on Christmas night. 

This year instead of around 20 for

Christmas lunch there will

only be eight.

One-Word-Sunday-Seasonal

~~~~~

~~~~~

seasonal

relating to or characteristic of a particular season of the year.

~~~~~

Back in September/October I would have posted

this image as seasonal.

A few years ago the camera club to which I belong

found cheap day return airfares to Sydney.

Even though the christmas season was with us

Manly’s Beach was crowded with sun lovers

trying to escape the early summer heat.

However, there is only one season…

 

…during which these ornaments are…

 

…on display in our house.

my Father purchased in the sixties.
