The morning started slowly. The puppy was excitable again and was unsettling our faithful donkey, so our host’s husband took the puppy for a walk.

22dec2When he returned we did the face time thing that they talked about yesterday. It was all very strange. We could speak to our host’s little girl, who was very pleased to see us and for someone so small seemed to know an awful about me, Joseph and our donkey. The little girl asked me where Jesus was and seemed a bit disappointed when I explained that he hadn’t been born yet!

The rest of the day was spent cleaning. Joseph chopped wood for the fire while I helped to clean indoors.

We warmed ourselves in front of the fire before heading to our final destination ….

The weather has taken a turn for the worse…..apparently a storm named Barbara is on the way!
