I must have been good too, because it was a magical day - the kind of magic that only good children get to experience.....maybe you got to experience it too.....
....we woke up to SNOW ON CHRISTMAS MORNING!?! How magical is that?! I could hardly believe my eyes and thought momentarily that the large fluffy one was laying on me covering my eyes. All that fur would most certainly have looked like a snow storm! But it wasn't her, it really was snow!
SNOW!!! Oh the joy! But wait...."she" is still asleep. Humfph! Well I knew I'd filed my claws for something, but oh my whiskers...this was divine! So, ever so subtle was the paw....as I lay next to her pillow.....stretching and yawning....oops, sorry was that your face my paw and claw just collided with?!
Oops! So sorry. But now that you're awake you might want to look outside....
Wide eyed in wonder but still not moving from the bed. So I used my powerful feline mind telepathy and told "her" to go outside and play. Dad must have intercepted the telepathic message because he rolled off the bed and with sleep in his eyes said he was going outside to take some photos. And then he was gone, out the door, gee he didn't even brush his teeth or eat breakfast kind of gone.....
So I tried again.....'you want to go outside'.....and I stared at "her" hoping to make a more focused attempt at mental persuasion....and then....."she" sat up in bed.....Oh YES! Progress!
So I worked my powerful feline telepathic powers again.....'you want to go outside'.....'take some photos'.....'for my blog'.....oops......busted, "she's" on to me so I look away casually, feigning innocence naturally.
"She's" a little slower getting outside. Not sure why "she" has to wash the face and brush the teeth, but "she" does. And I remain (almost) patient. It is Christmas after all. And we are supposed to be good and kind. So pushing "her" out the door would not be considered good Christmas etiquette. Not sure, but didn't want to chance it.....
And grateful. It is important to remember - be grateful! For all those things in life we get to experience and all the sights we get to see (that's correct I only watch the birds).
BE VERY GRATEFUL! For those who are patient AND grateful get CATNIP!
|Yes, it's true, I had a motive to get them out of the house...|
there was catnip under the tree that needed my undivided attention!
Here's hoping that you had a delightful Christmas filled
with laughter, love and moments of pure bliss!
