Once you chose hope anything is possible.
Hopefully today no rain for the morning at least. We have some things to do outside.
We have some bulbs emerging already they don't concern themselves with things a mind does.
The Gorslwyd Blog, news, links images, video - all that's happening around Gorswlyd!
Mo looking her prettiest hard to stay upset with her despite the" treats" she leaves for us.
Not sure about a dogs life our cats have a pretty good one here.
The sea is doing quite enough foaming as it is at the moment!
We feel really blessed that the stream at the bottom of our walkway has not burst it's banks too badly. There are others not so fortunate so we are sending positive thoughts out there
Best to be known well by a few than known less well by many
Ah.. life's rich tapestry eh ?..
Hoping the high tides today have not caused too much damage on the coasts
We have all of those here today and are truly blessed
Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.”
― Joseph Addison
Smiling here with lots of sunshine no wind yet though plenty forecast for later.
Friends for lunch so plenty more smiles too.
I don't know how you get dressed if you live in Wales, because it's pouring rain and then it's hot sunshine, and then it might hail. It's just so confusing.
We dress for all eventualities here , we have had rain hail and sunshine so far and the day has only just started !
The wind was strong here last night and early this morning , now we see blue sky amongst the clouds and hope of a quieter day
Boxing Day is traditionally the day following Christmas Day, when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts, known as a "Christmas box", from their bosses or employers. Today, Boxing Day is the bank holiday that generally takes place on 26 December. It is observed in the United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and some other Commonwealth nations.
In South Africa, Boxing Day was renamed Day of Goodwill in 1994. In Ireland, the day is known as St. Stephen's Day (Irish: Lá Fhéile Stiofáin) or the Day of the Wren (Irish: Lá an Dreoilín). In many European countries, including notably Germany, Poland, Scandinaviaand the Netherlands, 26 December is celebrated as the Second Christmas Day
Quiet day at home after a 500 mile round trip to see family yesterday
Have a beautiful day , keep safe and serene whatever the circumstances
Blessings to all affected by the weather yesterday , we are grateful our guests got here safely and wish them a peaceful time here
Well the forecast here is right . windy and wet , thankfully we are not as affected as other parts of the country
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
Hurrah! we have a four minute longer day today ! We will do our best to make the most of it
Deep peace of the winter solstice to you.
Deep peace of the falling snow to you.
Deep peace of the love of friends to you.
Deep peace of the gentle deer to you.
Deep peace of the moon and stars to you.................... Author unknown but much appreciated!
We celebrated the winter solstice yesterday by having friends over for some music, laughter and fellowship, the weather put paid to the bonfire idea , but was no matter , the chapel and the Rose room were great shelters
“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”

As the end of the year draws near and we prepare to entertain and visit family and friends during this festive season. We look back to all who have contributed to bringing happiness here to Gorslwyd. For those who helped build, those who holidayed, those who helped tend a great big thank you we couldn't do it without you .
As we prepare for the shortest day of the year and the season of darkness, the symbol of light begins to appear all around us.
We are looking forward to our solstice celebration on Saturday with a labyrinth walk and bonfire. The weather is changing constantly, yesterdays violent winds and heavy rain have brought bright sunshine ,clear skies and a stillness at the moment.
We are blessed with a lot of grace today...... The birds have stripped the seeds from the feeders and are looking for more !
Stunning Morning today , wind has a bit of bite to it though , the chickens are sheltering under the fir tree outside the garage
Solar panels 0.9 kwh produced yesterday 1974.8 to date
This is our lovely marbled poinsettia that arrived with a few other plants we are putting out into the garden's here .
We have planted 15 trees since we have been here , so others can hopefully enjoy them long after we have gone
Our new bird feeding station we cobbled together. The birds don't seem at all bothered at its less than perfect appearance they can feel the love that built it.
“The sky is not my limit...I am.”
― T.F. Hodge, From Within I Rise: Spiritual Triumph Over Death and Conscious Encounters with "The Divine Presence"
The sky last night different to what we can see today, grey and dull so lovely that things are always changing helps with the internal perspective of things.
“Like a red morn that ever yet betokened,Wreck to the seaman, tempest to the field,Sorrow to the shepherds, woe unto the birds,Gusts and foul flaws to herdmen and to herds.”
Another take on red sky in the morning .....Great colours this morning , but no rain predicted , we will take it as it comes ...
