Made From Scratch (i.e., Clay), Dried & Hand Painted Toadstools By Teischan (14).

by Anura Guruge



Yes, another Christmas present. This one for her sister.

One of many of her artistic gifts this year — which included my painting & the hand painted sneakers (which you can see above).

This was her FIRST foray with clay. I had no idea she was working with clay. This blew me away. She could easily sell these. They are so cute. But, she refuses to sell. Money does not motivate her!

Hand Painted Sneakers As A Christmas Present From Our 14-Year Old Daughter.

by Anura Guruge



The whole sneaker is hand painted by you know who — 14-years old. First time. She knew she could do it. Got the mother to buy her a pair of white sneakers. Painted them. They are a Christmas present to the mother. How special.

I am sure she could sell such sneakers at quite a price. Not interested. Will NOT part with her work. Has to stay in the house. She has only made one exception. For a friend of mine who was dying from cancer.

Christmas 2020 — A Few Pictures For The Record.

by Anura Guruge



Just a FEW pictures for the record. This blog has become our organic diary. We all know we can go check, pictorially, what important things happened on any given day. Actually quite a record. 7-pictures, everyday, WITHOUT FAIL, for 6 odd (& very odd) years or so. You should try it.

Someone Just Bought Herself A Car For Christmas 2020.

by Anura Guruge



Note, I said ‘HER’. Not I. All her doing. I just had to drive her to Westminster, Vermont, to pick it up. She found it on the Internet. Yes, it is a KIA. A 2016 Kia Optima EX with the WORKS — & what works they are. Quite the car. Newest & fanciest car at our address.

Christmas 2020 At The Guruge Household.

by Anura Guruge


Just a snapshot. A collage. NOT COMPREHENSIVE. Much more, BUT I haven’t got around to capturing it all.

Yes, we still have 3 Christmas trees, BUT for the first time in 14-years ONLY one is real. Two fake! Yikes. NOT my decision. But, someone — & we will not name names — wanted a PINK Christmas tree. Hard to find a real Christmas tree that is pink. SMILE.

Two Santa villages. 10 Advent calendars.

Yes, you are free to steal these pictures.


Christmas Last Year. Very different look!


I typically take a SELFIE-MY-WAY around Christmas just to prove to myself that I made it to another Christmas.

This was NOT planned. Happened to see myself in a mirror. Camera, for a change, was HANDY. So, here. I am NOT used to going unshaved for long. Will have to shave now.

Merry Christmas 2020. Cheers.
