Eve of the New Year

Emily is stopping by to say hello and to wish everyone a happy New Year! She went to the vet a few days ago for grooming. The vet warmed my heart by saying that "Having a sister for Emily has done her a world of good." It has been an interesting week. I worked a half day today. The walk home, though wet and sloppy, was not nearly as nasty as the snow storm last week. When I left work last week the wind was so strong I couldn't move forward without a struggle. How things change!
Willow and Emily both love their new Christmas toy! I found it after Christmas but I don't think they hold that against me.
I was expecting Willow to like the toy but Emily loves it as well. Emily acts like a kitten when I bring out the feather mouse.
The snow from last week's storm has melted away. I think that there are now flood warnings. Wishing everyone a safe, healthy, and happy New Year!

Christmas Eve

Hello. Happy Christmas Eve to everyone who celebrates this holiday! I was expecting to write this post after Christmas. However, due to snowstorm/blizzard conditions my visit to family has been cancelled. Right now, I am envisioning them sitting around the table to a festive feast. The presents will have been opened already. My mother and sister had just a short drive to my sister's home but that was a bit dicey. I'm not sorry we decided that it was not a good idea for me to go today-the roads are a mess. I am feeling rather let down, though. It is lovely and quiet at home. Emily and Willow have been snoozing together peacefully. (The photo above is Willow)
In anticipation of the coming bad weather, I did all of my usual housework. It is a satisfying feeling to have most of my "chores" done. I also cooked up a couple of different meals ahead of time in case the hydro went out. Miss Emily is wishing you a happy Christmas in the above photo! :)
And though this weather is frightful-it is also very beautiful! Wishing all of you, person and feline, a happy, healthy Christmas!
