Twinkle lights and felines

 Hello Felines.  Winston here.  It's getting close.  This day called Christmas is less than a week away.  I would gently like to point out that in this photo I am stoically admiring the tree from a safe distance!   If you looked very hard, perhaps you could make out a tiny halo?    (Stop laughing,  Mom!)
 Are your people very busy?   Mine is, too!   She says she loves the lights and the music this time of year.  Only everything happens in such a whirlwind.   This morning photo is on her walk to work last week.   It was very cold but beautiful!
 Mom went to visit some friends after work on Saturday.   They had done something a bit different this year with their Christmas tree.  The above photo is a bokeh of all the lights gently falling from the ceiling down to
 the Nativity scene.   Mom has some very creative friends.   Her friend's hubby, played some piano music, including one of Mom's favourites: The Christmas Eve Waltz/The First Noel arrangement by David Lanz.
Mom says it is so beautiful, this musical arrangement, that her heart feels both happy and sad.   I will put a link here to a youtube video where someone plays this song:

Mom doesn't know how to include the video in the blog but, if you want, you can copy and paste the above link into the  YouTube search bar.

I am a little worried.  Neither Emily or I have seen Mom come back from an outing with anything resembling a gift for us!  She said the vet's office no longer has the toy she was hoping to purchase!  Now what!!  This cheeky black and white kitty lives at the vet's office.  His name is Bogart and he gets into all sorts of mischief.
 Hello now from Emily.  Winston and I are trying to be extra affectionate.  Winston likes to wake Mom up by licking her face.  Now she has 3 alarm clocks instead of the 2!  Also, I, Emily help Mom with her yoga stretches.  The is a fuzzy photo of me getting in the way  helping Mom do her stretches! How much better can we possibly be?!
 Another photo from an early morning walk.  It was frosty and a bit foggy.  The sun was just starting to come out so everything was a bit gold!
 Mom says she hasn't had time to read a good book in a while.  When she sits down to read she ends up falling asleep!
One of Mom's co-workers made this construction paper tree for Mom's finger puppets: Charlie Brown and Snoopy.  The Ballerina hippo is a completely different story!

Mom says that even thought there are many beautiful things to enjoy about the season, there are some people who find Christmas diffiuclt.  Perhaps they are sad, miss somebody...lots of things.  So Mom wanted us to share this lovely quote from Princess Sassy Pants.
Cuddle with your people, felines, even they grumble about your stinky breath and sharp little claws.
Purrs to all


  1. You both are being as good as gold. We're Santa will bring you something fun and/or tasty!

    Your mom seems to know how to appreciate each season and all that it brings, even *shudder* winter. It's good to focus on those small, enjoyable things.

    Bogart is a cutie -- he looks like he'd be a mischief-maker!

    Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you all. We hope you have a wonderful celebration!

    1. Thank you Kea! We hope you and the boys have a nice holiday celebration as well!

  2. I haven't cracked a book open since Da Boyz came to live with us! They need supervision, otherwise the whole house would be wrecked, and Angel would be very angry!

    1. Yikes! We like to keep our Mom on her toes, too! We will wish you a Happy Christmas! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Yep, you are both being amazing. We know Sandy Claws is taking note.

    1. Thank you Whiskeratti! All this amazing is exhausting. Sandy Claws had better remember this!
      Purrs to you for visiting. We hope Sandy Claws is good to everyone there!

  4. I am sure your mom will have gifts for you sweet kitties.

    1. Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Mom was acting a bit more mysterious on Tuesday evening. Purrs to you all.

  5. the holidays are hard for many of us, it is also the expectations that society puts on everyone to be "merry" when many, many don't have a ton to be "merry" about. It is a beautiful time of year, just beautiful...New Years is the worst.......I am one that happens to loathe New Years Eve, always have. catchatwithcarenandcody

    1. Hi! Thanks for visiting =) Yes, being "merry" is not always doable. I love the music and the lights --etc. As for New Years. I agree with you for sure on that one. Give your fur kids an ear scritch from me!

  6. Hope you all have a great Christmas and hope Santa will be good to you.

    1. Hi Crafting Queen! Thanks for stopping by. We wish you a nice Christmas, too.

  7. Oh, we can see you're being very good! We'll tell Santa, okay?

    1. Hi there. We are glad to see you! Thanks for telling Santa for us...just in case he may hear conflicting reports. For example, I, Emily was accused of dragging Mom's musical Christmas angel to the edge of the table and trying to knock it on the floor. Mom said she saw me do it. I'm thinking up a good cover story right now.
      Purrs, from the wrongfully accused,
      Miss Emily

  8. Looks like you're all set to have a very Merry Christmas.

    If you're interested, I created a page that will help you display a YouTube video on your blog :-)
