FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. Nothing very exciting happened during the week, I only put my nose outside once to do some shopping to avoid starving. The sales had started but I really had no motivation to go bargain hunting in this humid and cold weather ! My friends this week were busy with family visits or repairs in their homes, as the whole normal life had broken down for two weeks ! No workers available ! Mr. G. apparently has decided to retire into a winter sleep and his favorite place is his bed, much to the joy of our cats, who keep him company !
2. After having taken out the last traces of Christmas decoration, I dusted my cats (not the real once) and put them back in place where they had been replaced by several Father Christmases and angels.
My cleaning lady had brought me for Christmas this cute silvery cat from Poland
Then I continued my daily routine, which means sitting in front of the TV or computer, with the light switched on as outside it's a funeral weather and I sulk ! Nothing is going on for the moment not even inside, like nice expositions or other inside activities. What a dull month !
a glimpse of my slippers and the sleepy cats !
It's said that with the time as a result of living together your animals look more and more like you or behave like you. As cats never do what they are supposed to do, it's me who looks and behaves like a cat, I hang around and just do nothing except my computer work which fortunately takes me quiet some time, as now I have the opportunity to sort out my pictures, and clean the computer and all kind of things I usually don't have the time for.
On Christmas I have got a digital picture frame, which is just wonderful. It allows me to see my favorite pictures as a slide show, or I can fix just one picture and if I want I can change it every day ! I picked out all my favorite photos, put them in a folder and on a USB stick and now I can see each day another picture and not always the same in a frame. I don't like to put family picture frames all over the house or hang them on the wall ! It also allows me to see blue skies and palm trees and all the nice places I have been. So for now, I don't have to look out of the window I watch my frame to cheer me up !
5. Our painting class had started, and it was a lot of fun to meet again. One "girl" had brought two special cakes to celebrate epiphany.
The cake looked like on this picture
In the cakes an almond was hidden and the one who got the piece of cake with the almond got the crown on her head. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures, because we laughed too much ! She almost lost a tooth when she bit on the almond.
