Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! We had a very quiet holiday at home and are now stuck in a blizzard! Luckily I am not working this week, since school is closed for the break. I'm back on the job hunt again....this time not sure what I am looking for. But for now, I'm just enjoying my break.

Skinky is enjoying her new toy...The Wave! It's the only thing she's ever gotten excited over besides food! And today she is super curious, sitting outside the bathroom and meowing for us to open the door because....

We have a new addition to our family! Sapphire (might be changing that) came home with us today from the ARL Boston. She is longer and thinner than Slinky, and much more timid. She was very frightened to leave her cage at the shelter, but she is quiet and mellow, which we think will fit in well with Slinky. She is a calico, which is nice because my boyfriend wanted a gray cat and I wanted orange. She has a little cold, so she is staying in the bathroom until her runny nose goes away. This will give her time to adjust (she hasn't left that carrier yet, except to take a few bites of food) and for Slinky to get used to the idea. She's been hovering around the bathroom door meowing, so I think she will like her new friend.

Welcome home Sapphire! :) I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas as well, and I hope to at least finish one sewing project over the break. What are you up to this week?


  1. Yay!!! A cat for Christmas ;) Your tree looks beautiful (don't the cats want to play with it?!).

  2. Nope, Slinky likes to sleep under it. Sapphire hasn't had a change to see it yet, but we'll find out in a couple of days.

  3. I like your new cat...she's pretty. I hope she and Slinky will get along very well. Great pic of the Christmas tree!


Thank you so much for visiting! I love to hear feedback!
