|a pretty a day is here and away|

Documenting life's beauty, as seen through the eyes of a lady blessed with everything a girl could dream of, and more: five gorgeous kids, patient and providing husband, an adorable dog, a very cheeky frog, and still time enough to get crafty and creative in the kitchen or with my trusty needles, thread and yarn!
The joys of being Queen of the household! Rejoice, and the world joins in!

Christmas Eve, and kindness abounds!

The three graceful sisters on a clear day. Katoomba, Australia (as pictured by MY own three gals). What a sight to behold! Legend has it that three sisters were turned into stone by a sorcerer who intended to protect them from being harmed in war (it's a very complicated story not unlike Romeo and Juliet, you see, just thrice over!) So there were three sisters whose father refused to let them marry three (brave and I imagine, handsome to boot, as stories mostly go) men from their rival clan. Their father kept the three sisters in hiding, and the men came to demand their hand in marriage when they stopped hearing from the sisters. War broke out!

A sorcerer turned the girls into stone to protect them. Alas, he was killed in the crossfire, and noone else could turn the girls back into their human form. So they stand till this day!

There's another version, where it was their DAD who turned them into stone, but that's another story ;)'

Awed by our beautiful world,
Yol

P.S. Guess what! The kids emailed to say that a kind man at the Opal store gave Mel a boulder opal! How's that for some ol' time Christmas spirit? :) It's kind strangers like these who will really make their holiday a trip to remember. To experience the kindness of strangers is like no other experience.

For somehow, not only at Christmas, but all the long year through, The joy that you give to others is the joy that comes back to you.
