FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE

The week started again with grey and cold weather,  and  I thought I would need another warm polar suit so that I could change, but going out and walking from shop to shop and maybe get a flu, made me hesitate but then I found the solution, I went to the shopping center where I had all shops and it was warm and I also could have a coffee.

Of course I didn't find what I was looking for, there were polar suits but only in animal shape, as cat, bear or as unicorn ! Although I am not a shy person I thought it wouldn't be so appropriate for a vintage lady to open the door as cat, bear or unicorn with ears and one horn and tails !



When I came back I googled for such a suit found a very nice one without an animal face cap and tail.

A friend had invited me to see her Christmas decoration, as she does it real artistically and each year in another colour. This year it was in pink. It certainly had been a lot of work and looked beautiful.



We had our weekly scrabble this time at Nicole's and had a lot of fun with her little cat Isis.



Isis thinks she should help in the household and each night pulls out Nicole's pullovers and carries them from the bedroom into the living room ! Poor Nicole each morning has to laugh and puts them back ! Now Isis has also started to nearly open the drawers of the bedside table, but so far only manages to pull out some pieces. I think in a short time she will learn to open drawers !



After having checked my camera, she settled down on my purse ! I am sure it was because it smelled so good my cats ! Isis has the most beautiful crosseyed eyes !!




Mireille had really funny letters for her game that's why I took a photo. To make a word with 5 O's and one L is rather difficult. Nevertheless she won again and I was lost ! The fruit cake was delicious and despite the awful weather we had a very nice afternoon.

During my painting lesson I tried again a "pouring" painting,  I don't know what I have done but it went completely wrong. My table was full of different colors and looked like a modern painting itself. It took me half an hour to clean up everything ! And with that I forgot to take a picture of this disaster !!

And another week flew by !

A mask over your mouth and nose will stop you getting the flu, not being too cold.

I am not sure what a polar suit is?

How does anyone end up with 5 Os and one L in Scrabble? I can't believe she won.

Isis is a darling!

Wendy said...

That was some achievement to win having had those letters! But probably easy to get rid of the Os towards the end of the game. Isis is a mischievous cat! lol

The pink Christmas decor was a delight, very pretty. You didn't have much luck with the letters for scrabble 5 'O's is always going to be difficult.

Hahaha those animal shaped suits are pretty but definitely not appropriate for me :-) Isis is so cute and funny. Maybe one day, some baby proofing may be necessary :-)

I'm glad you found a non-animal polar suit! It sounds warm and cozy. I love pink Christmas decorations! Nicole might want to look for some child safety locks for drawers - if they keep kids from getting in, I think they'd work for cats, too. I saw some "pouring" paint kits at Hobby Lobby (a craft store in the US) this week - I didn't know they made kits for that!

I'm glad you found your polar suit without "the trimmings". Isis is beautiful...and very smart!

That fruit cake looks SO good to me right now! Makes me hungry.

The fruit cake looks delicious. That sure is a bad hand for scrabble.Hope the polar suit keeps you warm.

Maribeth said...

The cake looks wonderful and I laughed at Isis and her ability to "help" with the housework! LOL! Cats are so wonderful! But yesterday I was happy to have a fierce German Shepherd!

What a funny and persistent cat Isis is. Soon she'll be opening the doors.
My daughter and grandson have matching giraffe suits. It's funny to see them cuddled up in their warm suits looking like giraffes!

Lea said...

Pretty Christmas decorations. Isis is beautiful! Yummy-looking fruit cake!

Susanne said...

Oh my goodness she won with a bunch of O's? That is funny. The fruit flan looks delicious and that Isis is one smart cat.

Nicole might as well teach Isis to fold and put away the laundry since it seems the little beauty wants to help ))!
