The family Christmas festivities were held here at Chestnut Acres this year! The weather was awesome allowing us all to float about in the pool and catch a tan. We ate and ate and still had left overs, which are probably the best part. The house fitted all eight of us quite comfortably as well as our cousins’ new puppy.
Since Christmas we have had a relaxed week and have finally been able to enjoy the property! We have noticed that there are a large number of birds of prey living around here, as well as the now enormous Egyptian goose and guinea fowl families, hordes of crows as well as some falcon and buzzard type birds have been spotted every day flying over or perched in the trees.
And now it is 2013. The beginning of what will be a fantastic year of change. The year started with the wind blowing a storm but that’s pretty normal around here!
We wish all our followers and readers a happy new year. May it be interesting, challenging and always a good time!
