The front eight gifts are for Christmas day. Ginger keeps watch over my gifts
Getting into the spirit of it all, I hung up two strings of colored lights. One on the window bars, and one above my desk.
Not very effective unless the light is off!
The lights on the window bars. Ginger sat right on top of the cat tree - this is the first time he has ever gone this high. It's normally Shadow's perch
Ambrose is sitting on dad Ginger's office chair (which stays next to mine at all times)
Shadow on the chair to watching everything with an eagle eye
Although this post appears today (Monday), I wrote it on Saturday. As it's aired, I'm waiting to entertain eleven ladies tea in the garden. On Saturday night the rain came down and I prayed that it would clear up in the next day and night. If not, I'll have to move indoors which isn't a problem. The thing is I wanted to have a garden party and hope this will be.
If you check the gifts on the table above, you'll see several more than the ones I'm taking to the Christmas lunch. This is because several ladies are spending Christmas with their friends and/or families and I won't see them that day.
When I returned home from a birding outing on Saturday, Michael was mowing the lawn in preparation for the party. At first the pups seemed quite nervous of the noise of the mower. I panned in on Michael and two of the pups homed in on my camera bag on the ground. The others realized there was no real danger if Bibi and Michael was around, and fell asleep.
Here's wishing you all a very happy Monday and a wonderful week of Christmas festivities.
