and certain not my fearless feline. All she needs is a bit of sunshine and a place to park her belly. It's that old favorite snoozing place...snow outside the window and a full belly in the chair. She laid on the floor at my feet today, on her back, in her best "corpse" pose and for all the world, she looked like a black watermelon with ears and a tail...LOL. Luckily no mirror are at her level.
Along with ships and shoes and sealing wax, it's time to talk about our New Years Eve UFO Countdown. The tally is growing, perhaps not as well or as fast as last year, but still, very impressive. I tallied them up last evening, and we stood 98 completed UFO's. And then this morning I got a delighful email from Mrs. Moen, who has not only finished her pledged 5, but another 14, bringing her up to 19 completed UFOs!!! Really outstanding work, and she joins the rank of Carol and Michele, our over achievers *VBS* Well done ladies!! My hats off to you!
The day was fairly mild, mid 20s, and I braved the crowds to get a bit of the preparation shopping done. You know the ham, extra eggs, holiday nuts for a snack dish, candy, etc. Other than some prescriptions to fill and one letter to mail, it was all about what we will be eating next week. And I'm tired tonight, but I got it done, carried in and the car tucked into the garage again. Freezing rain possible tonight into tomorrow. Don't you just love shopping in the open market with all those Dickins type people??? *VBS* Many were buying big fat geese in true Brit fashion.
And of course everyone was on the lookout for their favorite version of Father Christmas. I was raised a Santa Claus girl, but I do find myself attracted by the Father Christmas characters. Must be my English blood....LOL. Hope everything is "jolly and bright" in your corner of the world.
