Ho! Ho! Ho!

‘Tis the season to be jolly, so let’s be at it then!

Yes, I know that theme doesn’t begin until December, but I’ve had to decorate the blog in readiness for December 1st, otherwise it wouldn’t have been ready until December 2nd, and I didn’t want to miss the boat, as it were, so the holiday season begins right here on Beyond the Sphere!

So, the trees are up – four of them this year – I only usually have the one; and I have a spare Santa hat there, just in case one is needed. Well, you never know… what with Brexit and all that we can be surprised in any number of ways at present – ‘tis the way of the world, it seems.

This year, I’ve decided to resume my Christmassy Snowman images – usually done digitally, but I may be able to squeeze in a watercolour or two… and I have this year’s Beyond the Sphere Christmas Card to create. Plenty of time, however… it isn’t December yet (unless it is when you are reading this, then it is. Sorry about that!).

Happy – no, I shan’t say it yet – December!!!

  2. I can’t believe it’s December already… but it’s snowing outside, so it definitely feels ‘December-ish’. No snowmen yet, though!

    1. I know, Diane… where has the time gone this year? Although I think we say that every year, don’t we?
      We had a sprinkling of snow last week sometime, but now we’re back into the grey! Hope you see a snowman soon!

    1. Happy December, and thanks, VK! I’d forgotten about my snow – I think I’d kept it switched on from last year!

  4. Hmmm… 23 days top go!!! 🙂

    No idea what’s going to happen this Christmas as Pat has been out of touch for a few weeks! 😦

    I have a food shopping day to come, then once that’s done I’ll order Pat’s present.

    Internet shopping is great, just having to wait at home for it to arrive sucks!!! :/

    God Bless!

  6. Four Christmas trees this year? You spoil us. I like your snowperson and the falling snow works perfectly with him/her. 🙂

    1. Happy December, Elaine! And thank you – this is actually one from last year, but I thought I’d give him/her another airing! And yep… four trees this year (only because I couldn’t decide on the colour!) 😀
