Happy New Year from Us Slackers


We have spent the last two and a half weeks on vacation and have been total slackers.

There has been a lot of this:


And a lot of this too:


There were some Christmas boxes though, so we had this:


which turned into this:


There was a whole lot of time spent in the computer room, with the requisite intense parrot supervision:


and this:DSCN3718

But then it snowed (I will never forgive my son for moving to Arizona and leaving me here to shovel all by myself!) which turned my lovely new rock garden into this fantasy land:


Doesn’t the snow make it look so pretty (well if you ignore the trash bins up the sidewalk).


There was also a whole bunch of crocheting going on.  I got lot done on my shawl even with my sweet helper Nekoka seriously distracting me.


Whenever my fingers start feeling cold or cramped, he is there to generously donate his furry warmth to the cause.


He is such a giving soul.


And he asks for nothing in return.  Except massages and scratches.  And regular feedings.  And lots of love.


And seriously, isn’t that what we all want?


Happy New Year, everyone! 


Oh, and don’t forget – if things get down and you feel blue, there are always PAWS!

    Happy New Year! Staying at home with cats (and birds) is one of the best ways to spend vacation. I certainly think so! (And so do they :))

    You make me feel like a slacker with all the crocheting you get done. I have yarn and here I sit at the computer…

      Hey I put in plenty of computer time! I am almost embarrassed to admit how much time I spend either playing computer games, blogging (which includes reading others blogs!), and surfing various boards and youtube. I can spend hours on ravelry.com alone! I am a mess!

    Ah Yes! Me loves to make biscuits on Mommy’s neck when she spends too long on her computer!
    She LOVES that! No does mean more, right!?!
    “Nellie, only if the claws are in”, Mommy
    But me can’t help it…the claws has to comes in and out!

    Has a furry happy New Year!
