    Katerinka12 what a beautiful painting. You are a great artist.  Remember that big wall I have with the two pictures you did not like??? How about painting for me? Do you accept orders??? I like the colours you are using they are very warm.  Please say yes.

    Continue the good work...

    Well I keep seeing you guys/gals are still having so much snow in Europe (wow!!).We are still busy in Aussie as its the peak season /Xmas and school holidays.we are experiencing incredible Heat waves, so Rita and I managed to have one day empty in the apartment and jumped on and stayed the night (it was like a little holiday for ourselves......Magic.)

     

    The picture is from the apartment balcony at 6 am in the morning, already 25 degrees BUT beautiful.....We had a small Champagne for breakfast with some Croissants from the local bakery.................and Yes "M" I had an extra glass for you (haha)

    I love to take photos. It is relaxing and something I can do anywhere, even in our own backyard. I know, lucky us, we live in the Catlins New Zealand, with lots of birdlife, beaches, waterfalls not far from our home. We don't take it for granted. Being outdoors is the best way to unwind. Even for a few minutes.

    Aaltje Cornelia Petronella Broekhuizen- The Catlins, my goodness what a place! 😍 I was lucky to spend a full week driving around the South Island. Such rugged and natural beauty!

    Michael, I'm a Sydney-sider, but I have soft spot in my heart for Surfers Paradise with its perfect 'assembly belt' waves. A very well-named place!

    Hey Everyone!

    Ironically I missed this one, because I didn't have any time off. But I SO enjoyed all the photos. 

    M Adamopoulou  - The snow looks so fluffy! I would sell my house for a bit of coldness right now. S.A is Boiling. Perhaps I need to move to Surfers Paradise. I must say michael beeston , those cigars and relaxation looks like it Hits the spot!

    I'm not much for hiking and being busy when I've got a Short peroid of time off. Maybe if I had a little while longer, then I would say yes to adventure. Me, I like spending time with my friends. No matter the view. 

    Sharonhaseley - YES! I love dogs, but I don't have any of my own. So I enjoy other people's pets when they are out and about. 

    PS. Welcome to the last stretch of the Month, only a few more days to go!

    Did you know that you can ski in Australia? ⛷

    This is me taking a rest in the winter afternoon sun at Perisher Valley, about 5 hours southwest of Sydney in the aptly named Snowy Mountains.

    Australia is world famous for The Harbour Bridge and Opera House, for its natural wonders, beaches, deserts and for ski!!!!

    Great Laura for reminding us.

    Thank you Michael for sharing those magnificent pictures. Australia is magnificent. As you said you are very fortunate for leaving there, enjoying every bit of it.   Thankfully for us January is getting away, summer is such behind the corner...

    Cheers to you pal....

    M Adamopoulou

    Whitsundays!!! Wow Michael and Laura are you in paradise???

    I like snow but I prefer a nice hot weather.  I love the sea's sounds and the way it reflects the sky. In summertime we go to the beach around 12 o'clock and  most of the time we stay there until late night.... Summertime is my time...

    Cheers everybody....

    Thank you very much Bandara the same to you. Your relaxing picture is exceptional...

    Sharonhaseley congratulations for wonderful pictures you shared with us.

    Today is celebration day for the Adams family, thanks to you my friends. It was actually my grandaughters idea to play with the snow, so she will be thrilled when I tell her that her idea has been awarded!!!  In the summertime she  is my assistant helping me in hosting. She enjoys every minute!!!

    Thank you for making my days happier...
