Away in a manger
No crib for a bed

The little Lord Jesus
Lay down his sweet head

The stars in the night sky
Look down where he lay

 


The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

 

The cattle are lowing
The baby awakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying he makes

 
 

I love thee, Lord Jesus

Look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle
‘Til morning is nigh

 

Away in a manger
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down his sweet head

 

The stars in the heavens
Look down where he lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

Away in a manger
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down his sweet head


I love thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle
‘Til morning is nigh
Stay by my cradle
‘Til morning is nigh

Whether it’s a 21st or…

 

…Faher-in-law’s 74th birthday we still celebrate.

We celebrated Father-in-law’s 87th birthday

in October.

 

Christmas is always another reason to celebrate,

perhaps more so this year with the arrival

of our first grandchild last March.

 

Until this past weekend, we had been planning

on only six adults for Christmas this year.

A weekend phone call between sisters

and suddenly…

…the lucky number is now 14.

 

However many you have in your house

for Christmas 2021,

may we wish you all the blessings…

…a gathering of your clan may bring.

Merry Christmas

one and all!

According to media outlets,

Winter commences on June 1st.

My primary school definitely taught us

that Winter or the seasons commenced

on the solstices and equinoxes.

June 11-2021

Late Autumn or early Winter depending

on one’s point of view.

July 30

Six or seven weeks later and there are

no arguments about the season…

Definitely Winter.

2907-2021

However, around mid-July winter does take on

a brighter hue when the first signs of spring

appear in the form of our Golden (above)

and Cootamundra Wattles (Acacias)

in bloom.

August, 07

Come August and Erlicheer jonquils have lived

up to their name adding some cheer

to our Winter gardens.

Jonquils are followed by daffodils adding

their touch of colour into early Spring.

FOWChallenge-Profit

~~~~~

~~~~~

profit

a financial gain, especially the difference
between the amount earned
and the amount spent in buying, operating,
or producing something.

~~~~~

When producing wool expenses are high

and returns are slim.

Take into account one’s own time,

that is pay yourself a wage and

profit is non-existent.

 

However, when growing trees

landholder expenses are almost non-existent

leaving the majority of returns in the

landholder’s pocket as profit.
