|Ghost under decorated tree|
|as I got closer...|
Well, the tree is up and decorated, the mantle has it's garland, and I started baking Christmas cookies and whiskey balls today...
|Christmas tea cakes|
|whiskey balls - DH's favorite|
And I also made a big batch of African Chicken Peanut soup today!
And as I cooked and baked, DH watched football and the cats enjoyed the warmth of the Aga. I've gotten use to cooking 'over' them in the kitchen...
And regarding feral cats, I have to mention this. One of our neighbors wrote on our neighborhood association watch (which goes through our cell phones) that he had recently put out a box with a cat bed in it for the neighborhood ferals - to help with the cold. He called it his *feral B&B*.
Several others commented on how nice this was... and so far, no negative comments. (I wanted to say that I've been doing this for years along with heat lamps and straw on the back patio - but don't want to rock the boat) So happy that there are a few around that feel the need to help these homeless critters. So we silently joined his B&B idea and added a box and bed on the front porch. As you can see, it has occupants already.
And I will post this sign again... as it really makes a point:
Have a wonderful week!
