Every morning when I get up I have seven little kitties waiting for me.  Cookie Time!  They all sleep in the house and by this time they are ready to go.  Starting on the left:  Reggie, Breeze, Willie, River, Big Mike, Angel and Petey.  They are all rescues from the shelter where Valerie used to volunteer.  Except Breeze, who Valerie rescued about 12 years ago.  (And don't you just love that new panorama feature on your cell phone?)

For the most part they all get along, but the calico River doesn't like anyone except Mike.  Little Petey is our mentally challenged kitty, he doesn't purr and doesn't meow.  But he is loving in other ways.  And as you can see from the picture, doesn't like cookies.  But he is addicted to dry cat food.  Go figure.

Yesterday was a big day for me, I got all my Christmas gifts wrapped and boxed up and took everything to the Post Office for mailing.  I have three sisters and a brother.  Most of them have kids, but we don't do a lot of gifts, just a few.  Plus mom.  I'm just glad what I had is in the mail now.

And now I can concentrate on the important things, like making Christmas cookies.  Love those!

I did finish one of the scarves I was making.  I have given it to a dear friend who helps me so much.  She helped me put this three scarf warp on my loom last year.  She is my weaving mentor.  I wouldn't know what to do without her sometimes.

I still have two scarves just the same on the loom, but now I don't have to worry about getting something done in time for anything.  I don't do very well with deadlines, and prefer to work on my own time.  That way I can take my time and do it leisurely.  And that's what makes it so enjoyable for me.

It started snowing shortly after I got up this morning.  I just went outside and brrrrrrrr!  Thermometer says its 35 out there but its a cold 35.  And still snowing.  We are supposed to be in for about and inch or two by tomorrow.  Our ski slopes have already opened and skiers are having fun. 

Better hurry ... only 18 days left until Christmas!

Thanks Sue. And you know your friend V does love cats and kittens. She'd be happy if we had 7 more, I'm sure.
