We had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's Day and days in between. Lots of fun, food and relaxation. Many naps were taken which proves the theory that turkey makes one sleepy. Or, maybe it was the late nights spent playing various games! Hubby had several days of vacation that he took the last of December and our son was here several days on vacation, too. We've enjoyed our Christmas decor so much that most of it is still up.
The big surprise is that our Christmas tree survived with the 4 kitties running around. We didn't even lose an ornament although a few were batted off the tree.
Here's Stormy looking at a present wondering if it belonged to her or more like wondering if it had food in it! I'm going to have to put her on a diet this new year. We won't talk about whether I need to!
Stormy, as heavy as she is, is the only one of the 4 I saw climbing the Christmas tree. The spray bottle came out and that was the end of that.
Maybe the others took note and decided it wasn't worth the effort. In any case, they were a lot better behaved around the Christmas things than I had anticipated.
I made some time to indulge in one of my favorite past-times, besides napping, which is bird watching. This little Dark-eyed Junco was snapped just a few days before the snow fell.
I edited my photo of Mr. Goldfinch a little bit in Photoscape. I really like this free editing program. On this one, I used Water Painting.
An update on my aunt: She is home from the hospital. In fact, they released her about 5 days after her fall. She had the choice of going to rehab for therapy, but she opted to go home with the home health services coming in to give her therapy. She's had a rough time of it, but is feeling stronger now and the bruises are subsiding quite a bit finally. We took Christmas dinner to them as she couldn't get out. She doesn't get around real well yet, but I'm happy to hear her say that her energy is returning.
I didn't make any resolutions for the new year although I do have a list of things I hope to get accomplished this year. Don't you just love it when you can cross those goals off a list and mark it done?
Until next time...
