Hey, how about that, we've got sunshine today and blue sky and puffy clouds - a real rarity here. It's finally gotten cold here, cold being a relative term. But our apartment's concrete block construction that is so good at keeping the heat out in summer is also excellent at keeping the cold in in winter. Chilly.
I've been good, tho scattered. I have three different projects I'm trying to finish up soon, inc one present that I've got to give away that I forgot still needed a bit of work. I hate it when that happens. I did a manic Gilmore Girls viewing and have now, unfortunately, finished season four. Boy I'm hoping there's a gift certificate under the Christmas tree so that I can get season five, which is already out. That's about all that's been going on here.
Just for kicks, here's a pic of some of our seasonal decorating. You'll notice our little tree is up high on a cabinet, out of kitty reach. I have fake holly branches scattered beneath so there is no place for a kitty to jump to - that's done an excellent job at keeping everything safe. The other kitty deterents are the soda cans that you can barely see mixed in with the glass xmas trees there on the right of the buffet. The cats hate it when they knock the cans down - ah the scary noise they're coming to get me - so that keeps them away from the tree as well. Yes, it's unsightly but you have to have priorities.
I was smarter this year and have the gift bags propped up against the wall. Last year I had them flat and Pokey insisted on jumping up there and sleeping on one large soft one in particular. She was small enough to jump up around all the "traps" I had set up.
Up next is a close-up of the Christmas tree skirt one of the Tentmakers appliqued for me. I sent one of these to my mom and dad this year to decorate their christmas cactus with.
And a couple of Santa Bobs to say hello. The short, tipsy one on the right is new this year. I was making him to send to my folks but fell in love with him instead. They got an upright, more traditional looking Santa that I made a few years ago (he's not used - he's been soaking up the atmosphere of love and giving...)
