I used to shake some of the smaller apple trees when I was a kid! So much fun. I adore the smell of being in an apple orchard!

They are adorable! Really! And the colours are so Christmassy too. Lucky you to snuggle yourself in them during long and cold winter evenings.



I honestly feel sorry for Kandice of having asthma. I have it by myself, and I use to use a lot of inhalators and other medicine when I was little. I found it very annoying and monotonous but I am very thankful to my mum that she once came across some alternatives to cure the disease and I don't need to use any medicine now. I hope that Kandice will be able to get rid of asthma too.

I hope that everyone is having a good start of the week. Best wishes from Lithuania!

Your evening sounds absolutely perfect, Festive Spirit!!!

Evening everyone,

I hope you all are having a good start to the week! I just put dinner in the oven so I'm having a cup of tea before I start the children's evening routine. It has been raining all day. This wet , cold dismal weather has put me in the mood for some red wine and a an old movie once Mr. Festive gets in later. I think we will watch House on Haunted Hill and perhaps Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

Have a lovely day!

It'll be difficult. My left is usually more tan than my right. That comes from riding with my left arm out the truck window.
