Let's Catch Up

Hello my lovely blog friends!
So much to catch up on...
but first:

Thank you to Linda at My Happy Place
for the cute Christmas card!

Also, a very big Thank You to
Catherine from Le Monde de Catherine
for the sweet gifts as well!

I was a very spoiled girl!
So many lovely things
I got for Christmas.
Missing from the photo are slippers
(I was wearing them while taking photos!)
and a cute little snow bird
that I will show you in a day or two.  

Banjo appears to be very
'pooped' from his busy

(Did this photo make you yawn?  It does me!)

Yup.  There was a lot of laziness
going on at our house over Christmas.

Our Christmas was very very quiet here
but still I feel very pooped as well.

And since I am off work today,
I will be relaxing,
catching up with blog friends,
watching movies and snoozing.  

And you?
Ready for some rest and relaxation?
Or are you still going strong?


Bossy Betty said...

Oh yes. Time for a break and yet at the same time I miss the hub-bub! Glad you had a good one!

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

Love that Banjo... just sleep until springtime. :)

Sandra said...

that yawn is adorable... and you really got a lot of nice gifts.

Brian said...

I am glad you had a nice Christmas, and Banjo is on to something!

Pearl said...

THAT is one beautiful cat!


BlueShell said...

and he's so cute!!!

Wishing you and yours a prosperous and very Happy New Year, full of joy, health and God’s Blessings!

TexWisGirl said...

mine was very quiet, too. but very nice.

Tricia Hays said...

Nice gifts! Gotta love that Banjo! =)

Tamago said...

What wonderful gifts you got!
It's nice to have lazy holiday. Banjo made me yawn, too. Haha :-)
I hope you have a very relaxing weekend!

Anesha said...

GLad you had a lovely Christmas. Banjo looks very content!! Hope you have a great weekend. Hugs Anesha

Christine said...

Cleaning today, why is it that over Christmas one is never home, but the house becomes a state of disaster? One more gathering on Saturday, and of course a New Year's bash at our house. I wish I was Banjo right now, snore....have a nice relaxing day ;)

SweetMarie said...

What a pretty card! You have some lovely gifts. I did get a new perfume, I love perfume! And my son gave me a pretty Panda Bear necklace, I collect Panda Bears. :) I've eaten way too much so I better get walking! lol Banjo looks really relaxed. Glad you had a nice Christmas!

Carolynn Anctil said...

Banjo is the epitome of relaxation. As are all cats, evidently. Just watching my cat, Luna, snooze gets me in the mood for a nap.

I picked up a copy of Mirror Mirror the other day and am looking forward to watching it when The Frenchman is at work late one evening. I don't think it'll be his 'thing'.

We're doing a bit of this & that today, nothing that requires any great amount of commitment or energy.

Enjoy the last few days of your holiday! Thank you for sharing a part of one of them with me!

Big Hug,

Sarah said...

Very much ready for relaxation today. Had plans to cook something special but feeling too lazy. Instead I am drinking something special :)

BeadedTail said...

You got wonderful gifts! We're doing what Banjo is and relaxing on my last Friday off until after April 15th.

Betsy Adams said...

Hi there, sounds like my type of Christmas---QUIET... We had a quiet one this year also--after visiting family BEFORE Christmas... Loved it.

Great gifts... I got some slippers also!!!!!

Happy New Year.

It's me said...

Sweet from

Susan McShannon-Monteith said...

Lots of goodies.
Have you watched Brave yet... it looks great.
Banjo has the right idea... who wants to venture out into the cold when relaxing is a much better way to spend the day.
Have a fantastic weekend and Happy New Year!!

Becca said...

Looks like you had a wonderful, relaxing Christmas! Doesn't Linda make the loveliest cards?
There's been a lot of laziness going on around here too!

Tammy said...

My cat spends its time in a similar fashion! We had a fun Christmas! We stayed home this year so it seemed more relaxed than usual, which is nice! Hope you have a very Happy New Year!

Susan said...

Really ready for some rest. Real rest, whatever that is.

Ann said...

Christmas here is always very quiet and low key. I like it that way too.
cute gifts and LOVE the shot of Banjo

Heather said...

Our Christmas was quiet too, but for some reason it still tires a person out! Lucky you, you got "Brave" for Christmas... I am dying to see that one :) Cheers to you and yours!

Madge Bloom said...

Our Christmas was quiet too... not quite a yawn, but I did not mind...

Chatty Crone said...

You must have been a good girl! Lots of nice things. Our Christmas was quiet too.

Linens and Royals said...

My Christmas was a whirl of family and noise. Now all has gone quiet again and my cats slept right through Christmas.

SquirrelQueen said...

Nice gifts, the little cupcake is so cute. Banjo has the right idea for the holiday season, rest and relax whenever possible.

Linda R said...

So glad you liked your card. I had fun making it. I have had a couple of days of rest but tomorrow starts the craziness again. We are off to ring in the new year with friends and family in Arizona. Should be fun!

Wishing you a happy New Year!


Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Ah yes, the dreaded back to work day....

But make sure to schedule in some naps before you go.


Sylvia said...

Such lovely gifts you've received, Catherine !
A lot of laziness ... that made me smile, just the way I'm feeling on those days :-)
Banjo as always is so cute !
Wishing you a good start to the new year !

Barbara said...

I am finally catching up on my reading! So glad you had a good Christmas and I'm wishing you tons of blessings in 2013!

Tammy said...

I'm all for relaxing. We have one more week before we head back to school. I love staying home so it makes going back very,very hard.

You received lots of lovely cards and gifts. Wishing you and yours much love, peace, health and happiness in the new year. Tammy

Laurie said...

I'm with Banjo, Catherine. For the time being anyway!

Penelope's Beehive said...

Banjo has the best idea...snuggle in and rest.
Wishing you a New Year filled with all things lovely and bright!

Eileen said...

Absolutely Banjo made me yawn...and I think a nap might just be in order.

I went back to work on the 27th so this weekend is my holiday (taking Monday off...4 days in row!)

Happy New Year! Wishing you all the best in 2013!!!

Katy Noelle said...

We are in a flux between lots to do, still, and then flopping down in a lazy heap. What happened to that driven mojo I've had for the past two months? sigh. Onward to dreamy January! =]

and, er, soooo is it still quiet? and.... are you alright? (Just checking. =])


Splendid Little Stars said...

laziness here as well...except...when we weren't lazy!
I love those fuzzy socks!
