Only a few days left to Christmas
and I just wanted to wish everyone
the happiest holidays!

happy holidays13

I will be slowing down on my blogging activities for the holidays and thru mid January [moving to a new home], but sooner or later I will catch up!

Merry Christmas!

[Will be here for New Year’s wishes! 😉 ]

    Happy holidays, and a Happy New Year! 🙂

  4. Happy holidays and good luck with your move! 🙂

  5. kalimera, marina! very interesting article about bees…i hav anothr blog that deals with these topics, and i covered an article showing how all of us can encourage bees…its a shame canada being such a huge place hasnt got the will to do anything as yet! something else i learnt recently too…may shock u to hear it, marina….scientists working for the big pharmaceutical companies hav discovered that bees can learn to detect cancer cells within a couple of hours….:0ur a very intelligent woman, marina…do u understand what im saying here? cancer detection…bees…sudden decline of….;)

    • Shocked yes, surprised NO! And who is responsible for killing the bees with pesticides? ….BAYER. Coincidental? I doubt it.

      • LOL! i did say u are an intelligent woman! i knew you’d know..if know what i mean…!
        not only, bayer, marina….the biggest monster of them all..monsanto…sshhh..i heard theyre continually monitoring the net to weed out people who make derogatory comments about them…i dunno if its true..but u never know…and of course u know about the cancer cure? it was found years ago..but the pharma companies hav suppressed it…my friend is a bio-mediacl scientist..he told me all about it…something to go to sleep thinking about…but what can we do,,,nothing! goodnight, sleep tight marina..kali spera

        • Well, they are the grand masters…. Europe is trying to resist but I don’t know how long before it bows to M. We can certainly try finding non gmo food and [if codex alimentarius allows us] grow our own! We can dream of a better world though and I am off to doing just that!
          Goodnight, my friend.

          • yes, indeed!
            thats why i have a little plot of land where i am…i try and grow my essentials there, lik potatoes, tomatoes, and a whole lotta other stuff.
            ive always loved growing things since i was a child…my graden is like a wonderland…small trees, shrubs of all kinds, little hidey-holes completely hidden by plants, where i can hide away for long hrs when i need to be with nature…so yes…as u say M and Byr are just 2 of the main grand masters…there are more yet…not going to mention them but u get the idea 😉
            that thing about cancer and the bees…thats really so surreal and frightening….whatever next….supose u know about chem-trails as well?
            anyways, its holidays…good morning from merry england!

            • Ah, yes… that’s our little dream too. To live in a little country house with a garden where we’d plant all kinds of veggies, fruit, trees and flowers! [preferably by the sea!]
              The cancer & bees thing is absolutely disgusting…
              Unfortunately, I knew about chem-trails. Some fear that we\re being sprayed with stupidity gasses! it wouldn’t surprise me. We all seem to be helpless and numb…
              However, New Year’s Eve ante portas, so on a happier note: enjoy your British holidays and may 2014 be kind and prosperous in every way!

  9. Καλή χρονιά Μαρίνα, με υγεία και πολλά χαμόγελα! Και μία καλύτερη χρονιά για την Ελλάδα…

    • Απ’το στόμα σου… κυρίως για το δεύτερο!
      Υγεία, πολλά χαμόγελα όπως λες και κάθε καλό, Ιωάννα μου! 🙂

  13. Hi Marina, just dropped by to wish you all the blessings of the Christmas season. Peace and Love from Izzy

  14. Vedo nuvole in viaggio
    che hanno la forma delle cose che cambiano,
    mi viene un po di coraggio
    se penso poi che le cose non rimangono mai,
    come sono agli inizi
    2014 un nuovo solstizio



  15. Καλά Χριστούγεννα και πολλές γαλήνιες διακοπές, γλυκιά φίλη της καρδιάς μου.
    θα σας αγκαλιάσει

  21. Merriest of Christmases to you. Oh, one who shines brighter than any Star of Bethlehem ever could.

    Please note that all the expensive gifts under your tree signed, “from Santa”, are actually from me 🙂

  22. ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all thru the blog
    Not a keystroke was stirring, not a wheel nor a cog

    My stocking was hung by the iMac with care
    In hopes a Greek Goddess soon would be there

    And then in a twinkling an image appeared
    A painting all sparkly, and a sprite with no beard

    I’m Marina The Elf! she cried with a wink
    Now give me some cookies, and something to drink!!

    Wow! What a great Christmas… : )

    • Where is my milk and cookies?!!!!!! 😆
      I think I am becoming a split personality: half lamb half elf… what would my language be? ‘Shelf’ or ‘Lelf’?
      Thank you, my dear Mark. This little lelf is jumping up and down of joy!
      Sending you milk and cookies for your beautiful Christmas card!! 🙂

  23. & A Merry Christmas to you and yours . God be with you & Blessings For 2014

    • Thank you so much, my dear FM! I think joy and relaxation are about a month away and even though I believe each moment is special and we should treasure it [even these tiresome ones!], I wouldn’t mind being beamed to that ‘joy and relaxation’ moment!!!
      Merry Christmas, my dear, happy holidays and may 2014 bring you and your loved ones an abundance of good health and happiness! 🙂 xxxx

    • ‘avoid’? that sounds like an impossibility! So true!
      And the added ‘pleasure’ of packing in the midst of holidays doesn’t make it any less busier! 🙄
      Merry Christmas to you too, my dear Deb! Hugs + xxxxxxx 🙂

      • Deb says:

        I meant the crazy part of, not Christmas itself. 🙂
        Oh yes, packing in the midst of it makes it even busier!

    M. K.

    Will miss your art over the Holidays. Remember to take pictures of those familiar things you love but take for granted before you move, and take pictures of the novel things you see on your way and upon your arrival. I look forward to seeing your impressions of them in your art sometime.
    With thoughts of Milk and Cookies for you and yours, Merry Christmas!


    • R.L.
      Milk and Cookies thoughts are just about the nicest most warm and beautiful words I’ve received for Christmas, thank you, from my heart. Loved the reminder, I will do that! Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, Russ!
