Nothing Left To Do

In 5 days (Boxing Day) I take my tree down

December 21 and we have no snow (LOVE IT!)

Banjo surveying his land

Table set for dinner guests

Kitty glasses very acceptable for cat loving dinner guests
(clearly I did not iron my table cloth...)

A beautiful gift from cat loving dinner guests
(Thank you Carolynn and Frank!)

Decorations are sparkling

Baking done with most of it given away

Christmas bears overflowing my living room

Presents are all wrapped

There's nothing left to do

 I'm ready - are you?

You are indeed all prepared and everything looks so festive. Banjo is making sure he's the first to spot Santa.
Enjoy the barren landscape I'm sure snow is just around the corner!
And Happy Winter Solstice!
Susan xx

Мне понравилось, как вы подготовились к Рождеству:)

Brian said...

Your tree is so pretty and those glasses are just purrfect! Howdy Banjo and Merry Christmas everyone!

Betsy Adams said...

Everything looks so pretty at your home. It appears that you are ready for Christmas... Here, we celebrate all the way 'til Epiphany (Jan. 6)... In fact, the 'real' 12 Days of Christmas are from Christmas Day UNTIL the 6th... SO--our tree doesn't come down as soon as yours does...

Love the kitty glasses... Adorable...

Merry Christmas.

BeadedTail said...

Everything looks so beautiful! Well, Banjo looks super handsome! Still not one sign of Christmas in our house yet so I'm not ready at all.

S. Etole said...

Love those glasses and your beautiful decorations and wrapping paper, etc., etc.. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

Elisabeth said...

Lisa Gordon said...

Not ready quite yet. I'm behind with everything this year, but no matter, it will still be wonderful.
Wishing you and Stanley a very Merry Christmas, and a bright and beautiful New Year, Catherine!

Ann Thompson said...

Eveything looks awesome. Do people still do things like iron?
I'm not really ready but bring it on anyway because I doubt I'm going to do anything more

Tamago said...

Your home is so lovely and inviting with beautiful Christmas decorations and adorable Banjo! Love your table setting. Kitty glasses are purrfect for having dinner with kitty loving guests :-) I'm almost ready - a little more shopping to do. I wish you a wonderful and warm Christmas holiday xoxo

Sylvia said...

Katnip Lounge said...

Such a great, sit back and enjoy!

Eileen said...

Your home looks lovely and inviting! Enjoy your company and have a very Merry Christmas!

I'm as ready as I'll ever be, and if I've forgotten something...oh well. It wouldn't be Christmas if I didn't. :)

Dearest Catherine,
Looks lovely, like the different branches you have sticking out of the tree!
Banjo indeed surveying his cat-estate!
Like your special table setting as well.
Tomorrow my last doctor's appointment and than I can attack the house! We only are the two of us with six cat-babies; no tree and very little decorations. We did have a lovely Christmas dinner at our best friends' home, with all of her clinic workers; we were about 30... Very cozy and warm with the fireplace burning.
That's our extended family but this is fine.
Got only 2 more chocolate initials out of 62 to deliver. The rest is in the mail and delivered so far.
Feeling happy and satisfied, this time it came so fast but I'm okay with it.
Sending you hugs and blessings for a Merry Christmas with your loved ones!

Lin said...

Nope. Not ready. Doubt I will ever be. I really miss my days when I was a mom and not working outside the home. :(

Your tree is beautiful! I still cannot believe your cat doesn't eat half those ornaments!!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

You sure are organized. None of that around here. I should clean but just can't bring myself to get started. Enjoy the week. Happy holidays, Tammy

Carolynn Anctil said...

Lovely, lovely, lovely. :o)

I'm as ready as I'll ever be. Which is to say - not very. I'll be sending out New Year's cards again this year, by the look of things...

Merry Christmas, dear friend!

Pantherka said...

Very beautiful!

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Kerri Farley said...

Merry Christmas!
PS - we had one Christmas last weekend with family - another one Christmas Eve, and another Christmas Day, and then one more a few days after Christmas.
and I'm still NOT ready for them all!

SweetMarie said...

Beautiful! My parents just arrived yesterday and I have a little wrapping left to do. :)
Merry Christmas!

Susan said...

so not ready!

Linens and Royals said...

Happy Christmas, I think Banjo is watching for Santa. Your tree is so pretty but you take it down so soon!! XX

Debra Newton said...

Wonderful Christmas Tree, thanks for sharing with us who weren't able to even put up one decoration! Wanted to pop in and wish you and yours a wonderful Merry Christmas!1 Keep safe ♥

Maggie from Stillness at Cherith said...

I am swooning over the goodies and the Christmas cat glasses!
Your home looks so festive!
Ear scritches to Banjo =)

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Catherine,
Tomorrow is a day on which you are in my thoughts...
A tight hug!
