Scavenger hunt 12-11

Early Sunday morning, with my coffee and my photos, this is such a nice part of my week. I have my photos all in a folder to put on the blog, ready set go....except the one that I struggled with, the one that I just came up with is no longer fitting.  More on that later.
Here are my interpretations:

                                                            LESS IS MORE
As I mentioned earlier last week, my house cat was let out by a worker who failed to shut the front door.  This is the cat that remained. Less cats, more needs. She has been super needy since her friend escaped 10 days prior. Then last night I received a phone call from folks one street away who thought they had found Tilly the missing cat. I went over, and low and behold, fat cat had returned. Ten days in the freezing temperatures, and she was still fluffy, but many lbs lighter. Now the remaining cat has a short memory. She howls and hisses at Tilly.  How short of a memory do cats have??

HOLIDAY LIGHTS

I wanted to go out and take photos of the outside of homes, but it's been so blasted cold, I just took a shot of the Christmas tree lights. Maybe this week I'll try the outside lights in the neighborhood.

ORNAMENTS

I love this time of year. We pull out the bins, and it's so fun to look back at ornaments from years gone by. So many memories. A trip to St. Baarts, a decoration from daughter's December wedding two years ago, and Joy, from a dear co-worker named Joy.

NATIVITY

One nativity is in our home, and the others were in the neighborhood while I was on a brisk afternoon walk

CUP OF CHEER

Getting out the holiday dishware, preparing for a dessert I'll be hosting later in the week.  Most likely there will be glasses of cheer, but I'll have these cups ready in case someone needs coffee or tea.

That is crazy about your cats! Great pic, though! I had a cat yeeeeeears ago. She was super moody! Wonder what goes through an animal's head. Lol. (Glad you found yours.)

Love that last beautiful pic of "Christmas through a child's eyes." Very sweet.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I love your set! The Spode is beautiful. My mom also has these tea cups, although she has the peppermint handled tea pot, but just seeing this added to my Christmas cheer!

I'm so happy your other cat is back! That is one of our fears, someone letting the cats out!

That kitty is beautiful! Is it a Tonkinese? We have a platinum mink Tonk.

Wonderful shots and love the ornaments. Glad you got your cat back - have you tried 'reintroducing' your cats, swapping blankets etc to get them used to each others' scent again?
