Finally Friday

Hope all of my furiends had a lovely Christmas or other hollyday that they cellybrate.

We had a quiet Christmas, mum came home early on Christmas Eve and spent lots of time outside clearing the snow from the driveway and raking the roof. Raking the roof means wading through the at least knee deep snow, more if there is snow piled up, like about hip deep. By the time she was done she was furry cold and wet. So a hot shower to warm her up and then she let me chat with the gang on Chatzy.

Christmas Day mum and Grampie went to church and then came over here for lunch and all. We exchanged prezzies, mum got a couple of DVD's. I got a few toys, Grampie got a cane! Not that he needs one at this time, but just in case he needs one.

I got a full can of stinky goodness for lunch, which meant I left mum and Grampie alone while they had their lunch. They had ham and I know there is some left for me to have at a later time.

Here is how mum spends her time once she can sit down at home. TV on, feets up, her nice kittie blankie on her legs to keep warm. If the TV isn't on, she is reading a book.
The she has a favorite beverage by her side. Hmmmm, I see four thinks to drink from here! A big glass, a wine glass, a can of soda and an icey mix of yummy Irish Creme. Mum was trying to keep me away from her drink here.
But I got at the drink anyway. I jumped up on the couch, went behind her head and then down on the arm of the sofa between her and her drink. hehehe Then I started to lap up that good creamy stuff, not bad, a little kick to it. I didn't get too many licks but they were good. That gave me my red nose on Christmas Eve. Mum only buys this stuff at Christmas time.

It is supposed to warm up today and tomorrow and do some melting. That is why mum had to get the roof raked, so the water goes down the right spots from the roof and not into the house with us! Otherwise we are going to spend our day, napping and reading.

Our Maggie Mae likes to get her paw into Momma's milk. She is real sneaky!
Hope you had a very Merry Christmas!

We do not like milk, but our water tastes much better from Mom's glass.

Hi Derby

Sounds like a nice Christmas. No snow here, but the humans are relaxed and we're enjoying it very much.

Sounds like you had a nice relaxing Christmas. Our Beans go out with friends on Christmas Day, but mum cooks our Christmas dinner on Boxing Day and then we all sprawl on the sofa together.

Sounds like a great christmas plan, when it is so cold outside. You enjoy snuggling with your mom.

Merry Christmas.

I would have tried for the Bailey's too!

Gretchen and Mike said...

Mmmm, everyone looks nice and toasty. Our snow is starting to melt....very slowly. Pa bean got the car out for the first time in a week. They don't get much snow here, never like this, and so they roads where we live don't get plowed.

I'm glad you had a nice Christmas...we did.

It sounds like you and your family had a nice Christmas. And that frothy drink sounds yummy.

I bet that Irish Creme tastes pretty good!

Rosey said...

sounds like you all had a great Christmas! My mom shoveled the snow as well, but I was not venturing out of the garage, no-way! we pretty much stayed on the couch. Have a good weekend !

Karen Jo said...

The Irish Creme does look good. Aside from getting the snow off the roof, it sounds like you had a very relaxing Christmas.

Hi Derby,

Looks like you had a GREAT TIME ... and your Mom likes to spend Christmas like my Mom ... feet up, book or TV and a nice relaxing drink ...

Smeagol and Strider (Mystery and Gizmo too!) said...

It sounds like you and your mum had a nice relaxin' (mostly) Christmas.
Happy New Year to you both!!

Pearl C. Pritchard said...

Dang, Derby... too bad about your mom having to rake the roof and stuff like that. Over here in England it just rains a lot and the sun don't shine until April. Pumpy and I just sleep a lot so we don't really care one way or the other but the woman here complains quite a bit.

Oh well. It's always something.

Now I can assure you that that creamy, milky drink would be something that I would LOVE.

Happy holidays, Derby!!!

Sounds like a nice relaxing Christmas for you. It was warm and we had a pleasant picnic by the river before seeing the yachts off as they sailed for Hobart.

Join us for a chilled niptini at Pablo's - our yearly get together as my yacht docked in Hobart.

Lux said...

Derby, your mom's got the right idea there! You look so cute trying to get a drink!

MoMo said...

Nope, I didn't win but we'll celebrate all the same! A round of niptinins for all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DaisyMae Maus said...

I'm lactose intolerant ... an' Mom has an allergy to alcohol products ... so I'd never get a taste of that stuff. Have plenty for me, Derby!
