Joy to the World

Oh if only! If only the whole world was full of joy. This Christmas, I have been contemplating what life really is all about. What brought this on?? My daughter gave me the book "Tuesdays with Morrie" by Mitch Albom. I read it in two sittings (or lie downings) and look forward to reading it again. Even before this Christmas I was contemplating why some people think more and more consumberables are going to bring them happiness and joy. You only have to look at the Hollywood tragics to realize this is but a pipe dream. So you can guess what one of my New Years resolutions is going to be and there are about 2 or 3 more resolutions I will reveal tomorrow before going to Brisbane for New Years Eve. We have decided to go down to South Bank to see the fireworks and maybe stroll through the casino and watch some other poor wretches lose a swag load. Not us - we value the dollar too much.
We just like looking at the games, listening to a bit of music, and hopefully, if not too busy, grabbing a bite to eat.
Washing is up to date after our last little sojourn to the Sunshine Coast (which wasn't so sunny), so a little quilting on the Christmas quilt is on the cards. Late afternoon, when it cools down a bit, I may get into a bit of gardening and throw a bit of fertilizer around the place (especially around the roses which are showing the ravages of summer heat).
