After a few hisses from Ruby, the cats walked through the house on lighter feet. Hugo was barely noticed but Roo was a presence. She went nose-to-nose with each cat and then hissed and raised her hackles. Then she kept her distance. I just let things be. I knew she would calm down soon. I knew she would remember her first home. Within an hour the hissing had stopped and she was being just as naughty as the rest. She had joined them in the baskets. Audrey followed her everywhere and on the stairs they would bat at each other's faces. They began to play. Here she is waiting for Audrey to come down the stairs so she could attack.
Ruby found them. They had to be put away.
Everyone seemed content in their homes and was very welcoming as I began to crack open the cans of food and talk to them about their night. The snow started falling lightly which got many to their windows. The feel of Christmas is everywhere.
It's our anniversary today. We were married 32 years ago in Calgary at a small church with only a handful of people present. We then came home after Christmas and celebrated & partied with the families.
Someone remarked that it seemed only appropriate that someone who loves Christmas so much would marry two days before. I never thought of it that way but I guess that's true. Seems like a different world then. No time for a picture today but this one was taken 2 years ago and is one of my favorite taken in Almonte, Ont,. on a beautiful Fall day, while we walked Kane. Kane earns his keep as our photographer.
Hope you are enjoying your day in preparation for Christmas. I'm heading out for round 2.
