The Days After Christmas

These first two photos were actually taken before Christmas. I was putting the gels on the windows, and the kitty was outside, watching me. She is one of the feral kitties who use the shelters on our deck. I think they are only semi-feral now, as they are used to us coming and going and feeding them. There are eight of them, and they are like a part of our family now.


Finally, she reached up with her paw to see what this thing was. I like the way they interact with us; these little feral kitties have such personalities!


Today I went to my sister's house for a post-Christmas visit.


Everybody was busy, playing with their Christmas gifts.


Aubrey was putting together a mini-castle. She's wearing the Angry Bird hat I gave her. She loves it, and it keeps her head warm!


Molly was playing with the newest electronic thingy on the T.V. I think her dad stood in line at midnight on Black Friday to buy the electronic thingy she's using.


Sarah was showing my mom (her grandmother) how to program her new GPS:


My nieces are good at teaching their elders how to use electronic thingies! My mom and stepdad are needing more help as time goes by. They are both in their late eighties and still living in their own home. He can't drive at all because of macular degeneration and she drives only in daylight. My sister and her husband, who are both doctors, have recommended that they move to assisted living but they are resisting. I know... it's a familiar story among us Baby Boomers and their parents.
