Is This Wednesday?

What a weird week it has been. Crazy busy at work, trying to cram in Christmas visits with family, and then back to work only to succumb to whatever virus Jason had been battling the week before Christmas.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas full of love and loved ones.

I was very happy to get some time with Man Child and The Girl. They are both just really cool people to hang with.

Just missed one of my brothers as he had to rush home ahead of the blizzard, but did get to spend some time with little bro and his gal.

The kittens had a fine day, with fresh nip and a couple of toys that they ignored in favor of a broken belt from the Dyson vacuum. Next year, they are just getting broken junk, it seems to be their favorite.

I finished the first draft of the story the Muse decided to torture me with. I fretted over it because it isn't novel length. Until Jason told me, "You have a novella, move on." So I moved on. I'm about three chapters into part two of what looks like a three part series of novellas. Part one is out with one pre-reader and I have another lined up for when life isn't quite as busy as it is during the holiday season.

And while we humans sunbathe in the summer, winter is prime kitten sunbathing season:

Into the Madness

Not quite sure how it happened, but I'll be working the 23, 24, 25 (okay, I signed up to work those), but what I did not sign up for was the one night off, then work the 27 and 28. That is going to suck major donkey snot.

We'll see if I'm still alive at the end of it.

Meanwhile, here is your moment of Kitten Christmas:

It's a Marvelous Night

..for a moon dance. Well, not quite a dance, but last night, I bundled up and took some blankets out to sit in the bed of Jason's truck to watch the lunar eclipse on the night of the winter solstice.

Pretty groovy stuff for a pagan chick.

The winter solstice celebration represents the return of light, the return of life, the triumph of light over dark, as each day from now until the summer solstice will get longer, returning us to spring, returning to the seasons of growth and harvest and life. No wonder the Christians stole it from us, it is powerful.

Jason loaned me his camera and after a quick lesson, I was ready to go on the coolest photo shoot of my life. (seriously, cool, like 30 degrees cool!)

This first picture is by Jason, but the rest are mine:






I did go back out to look at the red moon, but the photos didn't turn out. Sadness.

Thor is the Grinch

Are those cute little cats wearing costumes and hats looking so sweet for Christmas on drugs? This is what I get:


Thor sez: I told you I am a Norse God, I don't do Christmas!

This is Loki on drugs:




Loki sez: Smell the pretty flowers!

Twosday!

Two things I'm happy about:

1. All was good at my physical.
2. I got a red cardinal (stuffed) to go on my all white/silver Christmas tree.

Two things I'm worried about:

1. All the people suffering in this economy who aren't having their true story told.
2. My friend with the special needs child whose family is facing choices that they shouldn't have to make simply because their child was born.

Two things I'm annoyed with:

1. The recycling of The War on Christmas stories.
2. Strobe light fire alarms that give me massive headaches.

Two boyz that make me smile:


Synchronized napping, it's all the rage.

Introducing Loki Monday!

It's the holiday party season, which means that Jason is photographing parties and needs almost exclusive access to the main computer for processing. So we shall move Loki Sunday to Loki Monday as to not disrupt activity which actually generates income.

Loki is such a bundle of neurotic cat behavior that it's sometimes easy to forget how handsome he is.
