New Year's Eve extra entertainment

This year we managed to stay up to see the midnight fireworks. We're really blessed to live in a house in an elevated position where we have an unobstructed view of the fireworks from our front deck (this photo wasn't taken by me...but our view is almost this good!). It's lovely to enjoy the beauty of fireworks without having to leave home. This year, the whole family stayed up for the 9pm show and then it was just Chris and I watching (in our pyjamas) at midnight.

We got a little more to the lovely view than we bargained for this year. As we were sitting there watching, our next door neighbour stepped out her front door in her underwear, I'm guessing so she could get a better look at the firework show too. She made it all the way to where her car was parked in the driveway before she turned around and saw us sitting above her. There really wasn't anywhere else to look, she was right in our line of vision.

Awkward for all of us. But then a little bit funny from our viewpoint.

So she turned around and raced back into her house pretty quickly. She's been out in her front yard a couple of times since then while we've been out on our deck. But she's not making any eye contact.

I hope she'll find it funny sooner or later too. She seems like a pretty good sport usually. Hope we'll be back to saying hello soon.
