It's beginning to look like...Christmas.
Although we don't really entertain or decorate much any more, we enjoy a touch of holiday whimsy here and there...but because we adopted a cat, we will decorate even less this year.
We found her in a pet store where a rescue group rescues cats from kill shelters. We wanted a laid back adult kitty. Our four elderly cat girls had passed on and we were cat-free and liking it. Yet, we we were lured and Zephyr came home with us.
She had been named Zephyr at the shelter and it suits her. She is a wild cat who gallops and pounces like a kitten even though she is supposed to be around three to four. She has already caught mice, "killed" a rubber door stop and is working on the art of walking on everything...so limited decorating for sure this year!
A creche on the mantle from Israel made in olive wood has been safe so far...
And my dear friend April made a MAGNIFICENT Advent calendar for me which is residing in the kitchen.
As I work on Christmas projects, I must hide my work from Zephyr. She would love to carry off these tiny felt Santas I made to sell as pins and ornaments.
The "culprit" is sleeping next to me and looking very innocent. See those little marks on the chair seat? Guess how they got there...
Time to get ready for the gym. And to make sure everything is out of harm's reach...
so as always,
enjoy the day!
