Location: Culburra Beach , NSW, Australia

I live in Australia, my ancestry is in Cornwall. a Celt. a hedgewitch of sorts. I am an Earth Healer. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. A gypsy. An eccentric. a mystic. I am a searcher, a seeker, a pilgrim on Earth. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. I love to dream, to walk and to wonder

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

special times ~ Christmas

lots of chatter about Christmas already !!! I AM not ready for Christmas and I REFUSE to get caught up in all the planning until December 1. This is the day that I start my preparations - I put my wreath on the front door, Bing Crosby - White Christmas playing and I start planning. I thrive on deadlines..... there is way too much happening right now to even start a list or think what I will cook...... I like to savour spring time, spending time in my glorious garden...then of course, there is ms*louisa's wedding which is taking precedence over anything until October and we also like to celebrate Thanksgiving in November, even though we are Australian.. we still have a Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings on the Saturday after Thanksgiving is held in America. After all, I believe it doesn't matter where you live, there is always something to be thankful for.
so all that said - this Christmas is going to be simple - Christmas to me isn't about gifts - oh sure, we give gifts but the most important part of Christmas for me - is spending time with loved ones, sharing a meal and making memories for our grandchildren.... that and of course attending the midnight mass.
I do make one allowance however - and that is I start soaking my fruit for the fruitcakes in September.

Christmas is my favourite time of the year, there's something special about that season - the whole thing about it being the birth of Christ makes it even more special but I also love all the hoopla that goes on at that time. We made alot of our own decorations last year and I think we'll do the same this year. It's a great time for all the family to get together.
