Momma’s Christmas Decoration Challenge

How does your neighborhood look at the moment? Are there many decorated houses? Do you like it? See here you have to go out and try to find decorated houses… There are not many around. So I thought to help me get in the Christmas spirit I might run a little Blog Challenge, the “Momma’s Christmas Decoration Challenge“.

It’s pretty simple. All you have to do is snap a picture of the house with the nicest decoration in your neighborhood. It can be your house too. Then write a post about it and link it back to this post. I will then reblog your post and at the end of the Challenge (right after Christmas) my readers will have the opportunity to vote for the best post. So how about it?

Here’s a pic of one of our decorations:

MCDC – Christmas Market – B&P’s Shadorma and Beyond – The Circular Poem

And another entry for the MCDC (Momma’s Christmas Decoration Challenge). Thank you so much, my friend, for your participation 🙂

Hello, Bastet here for a new episode of B&P.

Today we’re going to look into one of the many variations of the Circular Poem. I first came across this variation reading a blog written at Jane Dougherty Writes a few weeks ago where Jane, a very talented poet, challenged her readers to try the form. I found it very stimulating indeed!

So the circular poem we’re going to try is Jane’s variation of the form as described here in her words:

“A circular poem is one that goes round full circle.

The last word of the first line rhymes with the first word of the following line and so on until you end up back at your first line.

Lines can be any length, it’s the rhyme that’s important.”

Christmas market in the city
Sea of people looking around
Background of lights and decors
Stores, malt wine, stars and figures

MCDC – Finally! Our Christmas Lights Within The Snow!

And here is the first entry for “Momma’s Christmas Decoration Challenge”(MCDC). Thanks a lot, Erika, for participating. Look at the beautiful decorations! I love it!

Share Your Light

I don’t participate in Throwback Thursday. But it just made sense to me to share a post from last year. We still don’t have any snow but I would love to share our Christmas lights with you. Last year we did not have snow until December 26th. But then it started snowing and did not stop for days. See here:

Share A Little Bit Of Christmas Spirit

I’ve mentioned previously how hard it is for me to get into the Christmas groove ever since we’ve moved to Australia. This year feels slightly better for me although with our move (only house not continent) just ahead of us there are many other things on my mind. I think it’s thanks to making Christmas cookies and seeing the tree looking better and better.

Now I decided to create a little Blog Challenge and you can all help me and my husband getting into the Christmas groove. I’ll get to the rules in a sec.

So here’s what this challenge is all about:

The Quote Challenge – Keep Believing 3

I was nominated by the lovely Erika Kind for the 3 Day Quote Challenge. It’s such a great challenge that I keep accepting nominations :-). I figured this time I’ll set myself a little theme and try to find quotes I like according to this theme. Although Erika had proposed spring as a theme I’d rather go with “Keep Believing”. Believing in the magic that is out there…

Rules for Three-Day Quote Challenge

  • Thank the blogger, who nominated you.
  • Publish 3 quotes on 3 consecutive days in your blog. It can be your own, or from a book, movie or from anyone who inspires you.
  • Nominate 3 more bloggers to carry on this endeavor.

Today it’s about Joy! And I agree with her… there are truly a lot of things out there to be happy about. The trick is to see them, appreciate them and keeping them in mind.

Today I challenge

My Sweet Nothing
From Crazy With Love

The post I’ve chosen today touched me the first time I’ve heard it while watching the movie. Very often we can see ourselves in others and that can actually be pretty eye-opening. Maybe even inspiring.
