Oh My Kindle

Last week, the hubs and I went to his work holiday party.  It was a lot of fun, good food, open bar and best of all, good company.  Every year, they have the party at a fancy catering hall and we have to buy tickets to attend.  It's pricey at $60 a ticket, but it's the holidays so it's okay to splurge once in a while.  There is always a raffle that everyone looks forward to.  They sell raffle tickets and raffle off prizes.  Some of the prizes are gag gifts, it's like that game show, "let's make a deal."  If your ticket is chosen, you can pick a box or an envelope.  Sometimes the box is something great, but sometimes it's a goofy prize.  The hubs bought 20 tickets, and during the raffle, his ticket was called.  He chose the box rather than the envelope and won this!  A new Amazon 3G Wireless Kindle!  The hubs was so excited since he's wanted one of these.

He was really, really lucky!  Because the envelope that he could have chosen had a $20 giftcard to Dunkin Donuts.  He got the better deal if you ask me.  He's been really enjoying his new gadget.  He's downloaded some great books and short stories.  This past week, you'll find him in his lazy-boy reading his Kindle with Sebastian Kitty on his lap.  At first, I was pretty skeptical about an "electronic" book.  But I am pleasantly surprised with the screen resolution, it's pretty easy to read.  It also has a really long battery life!  I'll have to look for some gardening books that we can download!

Recuperating from the holidays

The cats and I spent the day recuperating from all the holiday fun.  Hosting my family for 4 days was fantastic but made me completely exhausted.  It's nice to sit on the couch and cuddle with my furries.  We all took a long nap, it felt good to re-charge.  Hope you all had a good holiday!

A Striped Christmas Present

There's a cat in this photo. Do you see him?
No?  How about now?
Still no?  Okay, here's a photo closer.  See him now?
Really, no again?  Okay, here he is!
How about from another angle?  Little Sebastian Kitty is the funniest cat ever.  He spends hours hanging out under the tree.  Even behind all these presents.  He loves it.  The only reason I know he's behind there because sometimes I hear him rustling.  Funny kitty!
MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone!

Someone really loves the Christmas Tree

Little Sebastian Kitty just can't get enough of the Christmas tree.  He sits there for hours, takes naps under there, he just loves it!  I find it amazing that he doesn't claw at the tree, or try to knock down the ornaments.  What a good kitty!
I'm going to be so sad when Christmas is over and we have to remove the tree.  Sebastian is going to be so mad when the tree is gone.  Shhhh, don't tell him.

Enjoying Some Winter Sunbeams

On this cold winter day, a kitty has got to get warmth wherever he can.  A warm sunbeam is very welcomed.

An "Elf" Helping Me Write Christmas Cards

This year, I've been so busy that I am way behind with writing Christmas cards.  I usually like to tackle this task during Thanksgiving weekend, but this year, I never had time for that.  So today, I finally took the time to write out cards.  Look who helped me.  Yup, it's Sebastian.  He was my "helper", which meant he swatted at cards, stickers and my pen.
Here he is intrigued with the smiley face stickers.
At one point, I went into the kitchen to get myself a cold drink.  When I came back, Sebastian was gone, but  I found his pink ball inside one of the card boxes.  Hehehehe, that kitty makes me smile.

Sebastian Likes the New Tree

The tree has been kitty approved. Sebastian has been investigating it ever since we got the tree yesterday. He's always loved Christmas trees, looking back in the blog archive, here he is loving the tree in 2007, and again in 2007. Things never change.
