It was a beautiful Christmas and we are still looking at our gifts and eating leftover turkey and cookies and candy and pie....oh my!
The kitties got to open their gifts first. Oh yes! Stormy loved her new red mouse. She rolled and tossed the catnip-filled mouse for quite a long time. We finally had to make her move so we could open our own gifts!
Santa was good to me and I got new earrings, a scented wax warmer, new Christmas ornaments, gift cards, a CD, a neat earring holder (because Santa knows I love my earrings!), and a Nook, which I can't wait to set up and have time to read! I'm sure I'm leaving something out, but that was just the gifts under the tree. I'd already gotten an early gift of a new winter coat and boots!
I have to say that I know boots are all the rage now, but I'm just not a big wearer of boots. It's mostly due to this bum ankle of mine that I broke years ago and they're just not comfortable. However! Sometimes MissouREE weather calls for boots and I needed to be prepared! I'd just as soon not wear a coat either, but I will if it gets really cold. That little rascal, Callie, put a tear in the arm of my coat I just bought last year. Would anyone like to have a cute little calico?
I do hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I have a question. Do you leave your tree up for a while yet, or do you take it down as soon after Christmas as you can? I like to keep mine up until New Year's Day most years. The lights are so pretty that I want to enjoy it as long as I can.
Enjoy your Friday and the weekend!!
Until next time...
