Wishes, and A Journey


Majestic London Buildings.

My dears, what are your plans for the weekend? In less than 40 hours, I'll be on my way to London for two weeks- so wish me a safe trip!
I'll be staying in London for a few days then I'll be meeting up with a couple of friends in Plymouth.
I would really, really, really love to visit my good blogging friend Tracy as well (she writes the greatest book reviews and also runs the "Pen and Paper" blog), if only I could convince my friend Mark to drive me over there.

But London is brrr freezing cold already! It seems like winter has come early this year.
Winter officially starts on 21 December. (The winter solstice, the time of year when the Sun reaches its southernmost extreme in the sky, will happen on 21 December 2012.)
I hope we all have a good winter.

I look forward to snapping some good London and Plymouth photos...as I pretty much take my camera wherever I go!

I'll try to pop in to read and comment on your blogs when I can.

Have a wonderful weekend, my dears, and keep warm! May your days be filled with joy and blessings!

Till we "meet" again,
Love and hugs. xx

P.S. I'll-miss-you-all-immensely...missing you already!

Hello Betty, safe journey. Yes, it's cold here in London, suddenly, and raining, but I think London looks wonderful in all weathers, and lights playing on wet pavements are great! Please take lots of photos to share when you get back. Regent street Christmas lights are very pretty and understated this year.

I am pleased that you are coming to England again, and with camera. The last time you come over here, you made a lovely film of everything. Glad you're coming back.

Te envío en alas de las nubes la brisa y la esencia de esta mañana, que nos envuelve en sus hojas con surcos de melodías, para endulzar las razones del pensamiento.

Un abrazo breve pero sentido
para iniciar la semana
con afectos presenciados.

Atte.
