End of the year

As I write this, 2008 has just 8 hours remaining. Some of my readers will be close to that midnight kiss, the uncorking of the champagne or . . perhaps if they are of my age . . happily in dreamland.

As the year draws to a close, here's a look at the bottom of a birdbath in our back yard. Some leaves, a rock, some water, some ice.

And a twisting trunk of a wisteria vine.

These aren't really Christmas lights. Well, they are. But we didn't put them up there for Christmas. They're always up there. And rarely lit.

And I was sure you'd want to see a current picture of old Catalyst so I took this one, with a piece of metal latticework.

Meantime, just inside the rear door, the impatient Jazz awaited my return. She always wants to go out if I go out, although she is never allowed to. So she watches through a window, crying and squalling. Poor Jazz.

We stayed up, as we had visitors. We had a very pleasant evening & since I was taxi, I only had one glass of bubbly. I feel good today!
Hope your 2009 will be a great one!

Happy New Year Mr Cat! I hope you and your loved ones have a blast in 2009.

(I was asleep at midnight - I was so tired, even the fireworks didn't wake me!)
