They also shared a few colored balls and toys with the outside ferals. I watched one long-haired kitty outside playing with an orange ball. He batted and chased it all the way to the bushes in the back and I thought, that's one ball gone.... until he picked it up in his teeth and brought it all the way back to the back patio. Ha! I thought... smart cat!
The large grey rat, red cardinal, and several different colored balls were part of Tux, Julie, and Ghost's stash this year. They also enjoy playing with all the wrapping paper that was left around by the grandkids.
Today is New Year's Eve and outside of making some Italian chicken and pesto pasta tonight, the only way we celebrate the New Year is to make some of my MIL's home-made eggnog (spiked with a little bourbon of course) and toast as the ball is dropped. Of course we don't always make it to midnight, so sometimes we just toast it in early.
And tomorrow we will have the traditional pork roast, black-eyed peas, and cabbage! Do you have a traditional New Year's Day meal?
Today I spent putting away part of Christmas as well as piecing together a small quilt. My DIL found some pretty fabric pieces and gave them to me in a bag of other goodies this Christmas. So today I started piecing it all together. The squares are sewn, but I haven't done the rows. I have black binding, but think it might need a bit of color... (have to think on that).
and I also did some clay sculpting, but I'll post pics of that later...
