And the fact that all the lights are solar powered. :)
Well, it is Friday and it is hot. Hot, hot, hot. And dry!! :( Pleeeease Lord, send us some rain!
The heat is not deterring us from enjoying our holidays however. We are happily hanging out together, enjoying more than I can tell you having the Papa of the house around - we love you Stu! - and getting in some time for rest and relaxation. Today I did manage to change bed sheets and get the floors vacuumed and mopped etc., but I just love having an extra adult around so I can sneak away for some quiet moments all by myself!
I didn't get to post pictures of our time in Brisbane as a family last weekend..... before we rushed back up here so I could learn to tap dance, and then I of course rushed back down again for the audition. But last weekend was special time with extended family and was great.
We were there for the baptism of this special nephew Tom. He is such a lovely boy, so convicted in his faith now.... and so talented, and loving! I think his future is going to be bright. This is Stu's sister Wendy, also a beautiful example of Jesus to everyone around her. :) I feel really blessed to have these guys in my life.
We visited the city of course, saw the Myer Christmas Windows and the big tree in King George Square. The children were so impressed with it's size!!
We walked around the city and saw all the sights with their Nanna and Grandpa, always a treat at Christmas time.
And had morning tea. And purchased the children's annual Christmas decorations for their collections. And did a little Christmas shopping! :) Nice.
So that's news. I hope to do a little more Christmas shopping this afternoon. Seeking out the air conditioning is part of the motivation for that. :)
Oh, and the whole process of learning to tap for the audition may not have been a waste after all. I myself am hoping to take classes next year (it's great for your legs I've discovered!!!)....... and so are two other little people in my house. Here they are in action the other day (adult tap shoes, makes it a bit tricky....) - what do you think? Are they naturals?!!
Christmassy blessings friends!
