Catching Up

 Hello, or should I say, "good evening"!  It's Miss Emily.   I'm feeling a bit disgruntled as our secretary has not been very good for us the past couple of weeks.  She mumbles words that sound like "I'm tired"!   We decided to force her to send out a quick update before she got to sleep.  Winston and I are well rested and, quite frankly, that is all that really matters.
 Perhaps Mom has the winter doldrums.   It sometimes happens after the glow of Christmas.  She did meet a friend for a warm beverage recently, though. 
 We have not had much snow at all this year.   Sometimes a bit of snow dust.  This is the view from the bedroom window one morning.
 Mom says she doesn't mind too much.  It makes walking on the sidewalks much easier as there is hardly any snow or ice.  We think these snowflakes look like little stars.

 Hello now from Winston.  Emily always gets to speak first.   Spoiled thing!  Good thing I am so "gracious" and a gentleman! 
 This photo is of me in the bedroom closet.  Mom didn't think I could jump that high.  Boy, was she ever wrong about that!
 Emily was right when she said we have had a mild winter so far.  However, there are ominous rumblings of a snow storm coming this weekend.   Mom needs to make sure we have enough food and litter for us!
Mom says she sometimes misses colour because outside is a drab grey or brown.  If the weather person is right, though, that could change.

Merry and Bright

 Happy New Year!   Winston and I hope everyone had a nice holiday.  Our Mom worked New Year's Eve but got off early.  She was very thankful.  However, I'm getting ahead of myself.  Mom worked last week after Boxing Day.  Work was VERY busy and also short staffed.   Anyway, after her work shift, she was all scrunchy in spirit and maybe a tiny bit twitchy.  (tee hee)  However, all that soon changed.

She met a friend for supper at a Greek restaurant.   The food was delicious.  She tried something called spanakopita and fell in love.  Mom felt the hard day slipping away like a bad dream.
After supper, they went to the theatre and relaxed in their comfy seats

Mom said the Nutcracker was amazing.  She had seen it once almost 20 years ago.  This ballet company gave it a Canadian flair!

 Mom went to the park the next day.  There was a tiny bit of snow on the ground.  This lady was playing fetch with her pup.
 Pretty reflections.
Our Mom tried making some New Year's resolutions.  Winston and I thought it was a waste of our time.  We thought more naps, more toys and more cuddles and treats.  Hopefully, Mom helps us live up to these high standards.
Happy purrs to you for a great week!
Winston and Emily
