29 Nov 2010


Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of November 27. You never know if you need an alibi ! If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.

For the first time this year it had snowed a little but the snow didn't last, and there was no problems on the roads. I wanted to do my Advent decoration as Sunday was the first advent and decided to do the Christmas decoration at the same time. This was my main occupation on Saturday. First I went shopping with Dominique she needed some new decorations and I thought I would maybe need something too. But finally I only bought a few candles.

Last year I had packed everything in an old suitcase which we don't use anymore so I had everything easily on hand. It took me the whole afternoon to do my decoration for this year.

I haven't finished yet, but here are already some results. Even my lost vase (see post below) is now decorated for Christmas.

On Sunday we had a wonderful weather, it was very cold but the sun was shining and it was dry and not windy. I took the train to Brussels, until suddenly it stopped, apparently there were works going on the rail and we were transferred into a bus which brought us to the Midi Station. That was quiet funny, I can't remember when I took the bus to Brussels last time it must have been at least 30 years ago or more.

There were lots of people on the market and I found some nice warm gloves and a warm cap.
The afternoon I spent at my computer to make new headers as you can see above, and also for my other blogs.

For the cat blog I first had to put Santa hats on my cats, of course I had to do it with special program because my cats would never agree to wear a hat ! I wouldn't survive !

The rest of the day I spent in front of the TV, watching an "Inspector Barnaby" investigating Midsummer Murders, with only 2 murders instead of an average of 4. Always very psychological and not easy to solve the case. The wood in the open fire was burning and making a cosy heat. Tomorrow I will finish my decoration and then of course invite some friends !

How pretty your house is, Gattina. And I LOVE the hatted cats, or is it Cats in Hats? lol! We also have a cat who drinks from the kitchen tap! Glad you had good weather on Sunday. I love your header photos. Always so interesting your blog. Blessings and hugs. Jo

Despite my hanging the Christmas tree from my arms yesterday, I have not come close to finishing my decorating. Today I need to make cooking for my club, and mail my gifts to Germany and Australia. Busy Bee, me!

Sounds like a great weekend. I so want to make a advent wreath this year. Yours looks great. Snow? Well maybe we will see some for Christmas. Love the Cats hat and his drinking method,lol. Now that show sounds like something I would love to watch.

Well! You certainly are in the Christmas spirit. I don't know if it will hit me. I am at the Bah Humbug stage at the moment.

Well you sure made a good start decorating for Christmas.
I was thinking to put one of my fake trees outside on the porch rather than work with all the lights just to have to take them down again afer Christmas.
This way I just take my tree back inside and wait for next year lol
Anything not to add more work to my life . It used to be a lot more fun when you had children to impress. Nothing is nicer than to see excited rosy cheeks opening presents.

I love those hats on your cats. When our cat was alive she was very patient with us and would let us put hats on her for a while. I spent my weekend trying to rest after I had a bad fever on Thursday and Friday.

Love the cat mosaic -- how did you get the cats to keep their hats on long enough to snap the photos?
