On the First Day of Winter...

Early this morning Shirley came over and had a Nice Cup o' Cocoa on the porch...
I had to chuckle- After all it WAS a balmy 39 degrees-
This is how she arrived-



Notice the Stylish ear Warmers... and she Brought her own Blankie !!







Fed the Birdies... Found a nice new Feed- has pieces of Almond, Sunflower seed, Peanuts, and the usual seedy bits I'm not sure what is...




This Snowman has hung out here for the last 4-5 years... His little Bells 'Yingle' when the wind Blows... And Boy, it has been choosing to blow Gustily intermittently the last week or so !! Blasts of cold East winds 30 to 45 m.p.h.




These Cardinals were to be Ornaments--- but they are made of Resin--- and h.e.a.v.y.
So they swing from the Rafters !!






My little Drawer/Shelf by the door...




Silk Poinsettias in my little metal Egg Basket...




The Poor little Battered Charlie Brown Christmas Tree... Blow over too many times and looking rather Untidy... But still Cheery & makes me smile- what more does it need to do ?




All the Leaves Scoured from the huge Old Horse chestnut tree...




Now the Moss covered limbs are in view...




In the Evenings these are the Sweet Faces I am presented with---
Alice asking if it is Beddy Bye time ??




She has her Brown Raggedy box all Fluffed and Ready for lights out !!




Babylon looks at me with infinite Patience... Knowing Soon it will be Snuggle time...




Okay Mama--- Get out your Book to read and let me get on with Snoozin' !!




Kuchi always needs to make sure I know how Put Upon she is and gives me her Deluxe version of "Stink Eye"...




Someone take them batteries out of that Danged camera !!
Kuchi trying to get comfy here !!





And finally she is Convinced the Photo Session is over---
And that means just one more click of the Camera !!

So off the the Land of Nod...

Wishing you All a Safe and Cozy night !!

xoxo

Lovely photos, I loved the cats snuggling up, it our family we call that "cwtch" an old Welsh word.
When we were little we used to call through to my Dad at bedtime to "Come and cwtch us up!".
Enjoy the holidays Karen.

Merry Christmas friends, and thank you for the well wishes. Keep warm and cosy, winter already looks pretty chilly there. It is summer here, we had a scorcher for Christmas Day, and today have it a bit cooler with rain.

Already I am feeling a bit better, I have just woken up and demanded some fancy feast!!

Smooches
