Inspired by Patricia’s lovely post sanqween & I thought we’d put up some pics of our Christmas. It’s been a wet one here in the Sth East corner of Qld, but we are one of the fortunate households that have received the lush, greening, flowering benefits – unlike those unfortunate people up North who are forced to deal with dreadful flooding (our thoughts go out to them…and we’ll add a donation to the thoughts):
There will be plenty of trimming to do soon:
Our three feline friends, Apollo, Emi (Emerald) & Midnight enjoying each other’s company:
Someone’s pleased we got a couple of dry days and I mowed the lawn:
Apollo knows how to deal with the rain:
Emi’s worked out that her Christmas gift offers a high, dry, safe place…free of her bored (due to rain), too playful mates:
Pre-Christmas dinner munchables:
Entering the Christmas dinner grotto:
The table revealed…we used all Scandinavian Christmas music:
Each person gets a pre-dinner gift…mine was whiskey fudge…yum:
And after dinner it’s off to the lounge to have homemade (by S’) lemon & marzipan biscuits, choccies, and Irish coffee…and a visit to the goodies under the tree:
A lovely time was had by all. And yes, I did forget to take pics of the actual gorgeous dinner made primarily by S’…doh! Was enjoyin’ it far too much. But I did most of the decorating…so I’m forgiven.
Christmas wish for next year? A better camera. But hey! we’re not rich…so we make do. (Blame poor focus of pics on the fella who obviously needs new glasses…again).
A HAPPY NEW YEAR to all at Cafe Whispers from both of us…and our feline mates.
A picture of Bronson at age 17 (tale told on Patricia’s thread):
In his last year he needed a helpin’ hand…but he sure loved his water:
