Hope everyone who celebrated Christmas had a great holiday. It's always fun to get together with family, but then there is that part of me that just likes hanging out and doing nothing for a couple of days afterward....yesterday and today are those days. Did you eat too much like us?
Did everyone seem happy with the gifts you gave and received? The gifts that were big hits (given and/or received) were: gift cards to the Apple store, Best Buy, Amazon, Urban Outfitters, a Dell mini netbook, Pandora Beads, Mikasa wine glasses , Polish Pottery coffee mugs, and (2) Keurig Special Edition coffee brewers. That was for the human family members, but for the feline members the hit was.....yes Cha Cha Cha Cia Cat Grass Planter. ($17.99 for this cheap looking planter and a package of oat/wheat grass seeds...LOL)
The planter is made from ceramic and has a cat on it. (looks a bit like our Lilly!) It comes with just the right amount of potting soil and one pack of seeds. The only thing it does not come with is the plastic they ask you to over it with after you plant your seeds. About 3 days after planting, the grass started popping through the soil and yesterday, about 10 days after the initial planting this is how it turned out!
This is Freckles the cat, who is part goat I think, (he likes to eat our Christmas cactus, most plants really, toilet paper, wrapping paper, and then vomit afterward). Freckles seems thrilled with the Chia Grass, and gets a few nibbles each day and then we hide it. The other cats are not as interested, but if it keeps Freckles away from our other plants then I guess I don't feel too bad about the $18.00...LOL
Do you have any plans for the last week of the year? I plan to finalize my posts for new challenges beginning on January 1, and also do a post on my Top 10 Picks for 2009. I also hope to finish one book and read 2 more this week.
That's all for now. Have a great Sunday.
