This morning I woke up with the urge to play in the snow.  Jake has been bugging to get out for a long time, so we went out.


It wasn't so much playing, as it was Jake trying to either walk in front of be or wander off. 


I don't know if it's his paranoid-like movements or his acute senses, but about every five minutes something would peak his interest and be followed by more stalking around the backyard.


Every so often Jake would allow me to pick him up for a quick cuddle but would soon squirm free.  He's a different cat while outdoors, more independent and less of an attention suck.


This weekend was full of family gatherings, home improvement projects, cleaning, holiday decorating and entertaining/feeding our house guest.  After meeting Danielle's post about mint hot chocolate, I've been having mad cravings.  Chris and I treated ourselves to cocoa at Second Cup.  

Mint + Chocolate = Yumm

Then I had a more Irish version when I got home. Cooking up big meals always goes by quicker if you have some good music and a yummy drink.  Not too sure why my weekend was so very "housewife/DIY-like" but things needed to get done before the holidays.  I'm excited for only having to work three days this week then being off until the 4th!

Jake is cute. My cats also turned wild when they went outdoors; I think the stimulation turns on their natural instincts.

Glad you're enjoying the holiday season.

Seeing that snow made my heart race! SO. EXCITED. And Irishing up any drink is always a good idea. Ever had rum & egg nog? Kahlua & egg nog? Delicious.

Jake is so cute- he looks like my ginger Marley! I let him and Mamma Sita out on the balcony and the hated the snow- they immediately started washing their feet!

Happy Holidays!
