Napping Through January

 Hello.  Miss Emily here.  I'm cuddling with Mom in this photo.  I love snuggling between her leg and the sofa when she watches Netflix. 
Honestly, with this weather, wouldn't MOST of us rather be napping. 
 
  Sometimes, to relax, Mom makes muffins.  This week she made Maple Walnut Muffins.  They smelled lovely while they were baking.
 Purrs from Winston.  I'm here keeping Mom company while she watches Netflix on the sofa

 These photos of the park are from earlier this month.  Snow on red berries.

Muffins and Tea and Kitty Cuddles

 Hello!   We hope that everyone had a Happy New Year.  Emily and I are trying to keep Mom from NOT being bored!  We are thoughtful that way.
 We are trying to get back into the swing of things!   Mom says she enjoys the Christmas lights that are still left up outside some homes.  She says that they are cheery. 
How are your humans?  Our Mom had been feeling under the weather.  However, Mom knows somebody who has pneumonia.  That is so not good.
 Mom made homemade cheddar and onion muffins the other day.  She wanted something other than toast to eat with her soup.  She says they were good!  Our Mom doesn't bake very often so it was a pleasant surprise that it turned out!
 Hello from happy Emily!  Mom says I have been a cuddle bug these last few weeks.  Winter is a good time for being snuggly, I think!
 It has been so rainy and dreary lately.  However, it finally snowed and Mom went for a walk to enjoy the fresh air and take a few photos.
 When she finally comes home with nipped fingers and cold toes she makes a cup of tea to warm up.  I may, or may not, give her some welcoming cuddles!
 We will close with these funnies from Pinterest!

Fa-La-La Felines

 Festive hellos to all from Winston.   I told Emily that she was worried about nothing.  We DID get presents!   We received a lovely soft blanket, a jangly toy with feathers and so many bags of Christmas treats!   You can tell how excited I am by my extra relaxing nap in this photo.
 Our mom went to visit family for Christmas dinner and presents too.

Mom bought these slippers for her Mom.  They are Snoozies.  Our Mom said she didn't know the kitty ate the fish!  She thought both slippers were the same and had the kitty with its head n the fishbowl.

 Hello from Emily.  I hope everyone is recovering from the noisy, loud Christmas celebrations  I must admit that I am pleased with the feather on this toy.  It is also a comfort to know we have many extra bags of kitty treats now!  Though I am a bit disturbed over Mom's comments about the Pearl kitty.  Pearl is our Grandmum's cat and she is SPOILED!  Not like us ....extra spoiled. 
 Grandmum put this Santa Hat on Pearl.  Mom took the picture on Christmas morning.  If our Mom tried that sort of nonsense with us then she might feel the wrath of our feline claws!

Not So Silent Nights

 Festive purrs from Emily.   I hope everyone is doing well.  Winston and I are a little concerned.  There is only one more shopping day before Christmas and we have seen no sign of a present for us!  Should we be concerned or is Mom hiding our present exceptionally well this year?!
 We think Mom is gallivanting about far too much.  She likes looking at the Christmas light!  We say, silly Mom, there are plenty of lights at home to look at.
Winston and I have Mom all to ourselves this week.  Hooray!  She can cater to our every feline whim!   She was up bright and early this morning to take a long walk in the park.
 Still, we are a teeny bit concerned about the lack of presents.  However, she did bring us a wonderful paper bag this afternoon after she finished her grocery shopping.
 Happy Christmas from Winston.  This is an older photo of me.  I think I look very mysterious.  Actually, I am just sitting on the edge of the sofa with my face furs over the lamp.  It is a wonderful way to get some light during the cold, dark winter months.
 I know Emily is a bit concerned about presents but I'm fairly confident the Mom will follow through with some fun or delicious.

Festive Felines

 Hello!   Tuckered out Emily here!  Winston and I are tired from trying to get Mom to set up one of our blog posts.  She is blaming everything on the time of year!
 She says Christmas is lovely but also very busy!   Mom says it is as if time speeds up but there isn't enough of it to get everything done!

 Mom had a lovely weekend while Winston and I snoozed and bickered the weekend away!  She went to her first Christmas concert!   She had so much fun!
Mom said one of the things on her "to-do" list before Christmas is a festive beverage at a Coffee Shop.  She loved the peppermint hot chocolate she had last year!
 However, Mom also said she would love to some time to slow down and relax to enjoy the season.  So, Mom which is it with you!  Winston and I prefer to relax.
(this fireplace photo is from a bed and breakfast cabin she stayed at a few years ago.  She just threw in the photo because it looked so cozy!)
 Grumpy purrs from Winston.  That Mom truly is slacking off.  I'm surprised we managed to coerce her into this post!
 Christmas ornaments
 Lots of snow here in the last 48 hours.  Emily and I are so thankful for our warm sofa and chair to nap on!
 Mom said this is a selfie!  she didn't realize until after that her reflection was in all of the ornaments.

The Weather Outside is Frightful!


 Purrs of hello from Emily.  I am thankful to be inside today!  We have nasty weather--freezing rain, ice pellets, snow and high winds.  The moaning of the wind woke our Mom up this morning.
 The weather was the reason for several cancellations!  Mom was thankful to be inside for the most part.  She was able to get a lot of cleaning done!  Hooray! 
She also took a lovely long nap and read a book.

Feline Holly and Jolly


 Hi!  Winston here.  Mom disturbed my nap with a flash from the camera!  How dare she!   I was a tiny bit cheeky back to her. 
Mom's family came this past weekend to help her with Christmas decorating.  It is a bit early but it was the only day that worked for everyone!

 Mom found this tiny white ceramic tree!  She loves it.  The only problem is that Emily and I love it too!  So the Mom put it up on the top bookshelf!
Hello from Emily!  I am doing some kitty yoga here. 
I had fun visiting with Mom's company on Saturday.  They said I was lovely and cuddled me.
Mom's family brought some treats. 
 The Mom said these cookies were so pretty she didn't want to eat them.  She held off for an entire day.  She said they tasted as yummy as they looked!
Mom's sister is a bad influence on her.  Mom admired these socks AND bought them!  Mom said it is a frivolous purchase. She smiles, though, every time she looks at them.
