Merry Christmas – again.

Today is Christmas Eve according to the old calendar, and tonight millions of people (including Ukrainians like me) celebrate with a twelve-dish dinner.

With the disaster surrounding us and a house full of smoke, this is going to be an odd one.

Crazy Cat

Well, it feels like winter here this morning. It’s so foggy you can’t see the backyard next door, so what does our neighbourhood cat do? Stay home, you say? Nope, he comes here to sleep on the back deck!

Halloween in Canberra

With the temperatures in the thirties, it’s going to be an indoor Halloween in Canberra this evening. It’s too sunny and hot outside! (And there have been bushfires burning around here all day.)

We don’t have time for much this year, because we’re packing to travel to China at the end of the week.
