Christmas Day

And here's the turkey just out of the oven and waiting to be carved.  He turned out perfectly!

We're certainly going to have a few meals from this one.  It will become turkey curry on New Year's Day!

Minnie helped me put away the Christmas ribbons.

 And Suzie found her favourite warm spot on the lawn.

And now it's Boxing Day, Sunday December 26th, which although not normally a holiday here, will be a little quieter since it's Sunday.  Other parts of Spain, such as the Balearic Islands do keep December 26 as a holiday.

Thanks for your visit.  I hope you had a good Christmas and ¡hasta la vista!

It's Christmas

We've been having beautiful weather here in the north of Tenerife with sunshine and barely a drop of rain, after we experienced that heavy storm.

 San Telmo in Puerto de la Cruz

El Botanico area of Puerto de la Cruz

La Cupola Shopping Center in La Paz

The Botanical Garden has reopened after clearing up the trees damaged by the big storm.

So we've had blue skies and sunshine nearly every day.

 There have been a few drops of rain at night though.

Luckily I  brought my clothes in off the rack outside before any drops fell.

And now suddenly it's Christmas Eve.  We'll be listening to some music, having our Christmas buffet and enjoying the lights of the tree.

 Tomorrow I'll be making a stuffing and cooking up this big fellow for our Christmas turkey dinner!

Manheim Steamroller plays "Still, Still Still".

Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night!

Thank you for your visit and please do come by again.

Snow on The Teide

 Well it rained yesterday after that storm and as happens at this time of a year, a good rain will bring the snow to the mountain.  Here is an early morning view as the sun touched the slopes at 07:48 am, December 1.

This is always a sight we love to see as it signifies that winter really is here, despite that the days can be balmy down at sea level where the beaches are never empty. Except during the recent storm of course.
