Monday 19th December 2011….back in production!!

Without Internet for three days and how do you survive???

Just a quick catch up and then back to normal… new computer arrived and I took it to my guru for data change…Friday night for dinner was lovely…the company perfect and the music was so great!!

Saturday morning was the tennis doubles that I really enjoy…very competitive a great way to start my day…then in the afternoon to take in a rodeo…in all honesty it was not too great an affair!!

Saturday evening was the girl’s Posada!!!

Cultural Observance: Mexican Christmas tradition celebrating the Nine Days of La Posada (The Lodging) from 16 December to Christmas Eve. The yearly tradition commemorates the journey of Mary, Joseph, and the unborn Jesus as they traveled from Nazareth to Bethlehem looking for lodging. On each of the nine evenings, town members and choristers carry torches, banners, or paintings of The Holy Family as they walk from home to home seeking shelter. At a pre-selected house, the door opens to all with an invitation for refreshments, caroling and dancing, and scriptural readings. The celebration re-enacts the ancient journey and symbolizes the welcome of Jesus into the home and one’s heart.

It was a wonderful evening and all the girls looked lovely and I feel I must mention again…the event went on for three hours and towards the end it was a bit cool….no fights, no crying just love and smiles from everyone!!!
