Time is really flying! I decided to take some time off for the holidays and it seems to have expanded.
New Year's was fun especially as it happened on the weekend. We had a quiet celebration at home, my aunt and uncle came over, some food, some champagne - and 12:30 I was in bed!
Here is my dress. I bought it for the last New Year's but got sick and ended up wearing something comfy and snuggly. This year I gave it a go. It's a perfect length and the sleeves are it's special feature. They are a bit wide to be doing anything useful in the kitchen, for example. But otherwise the dress is flattering and I think even this photo confirms it. Of course it would look better with heels but who wears heels in their own home? Especially if you keep running up and down the stairs.

This year we didn't go nuts with gifts, but I did receive something nice and even wore it to work for my 11-hour day. Guess what it is!

The UGG-like boots! Yes, I committed the ultimate crime of wearing them in the first place and for wearing them to work... But they are so warm and fuzzy!

The best thing about them is their price. Get ready... 50 shekels!!! It's about 13 bucks. I wear them in "the village" shopping or walking the dog. I wear them at home as slippers. My feet are happy and toasty. Thank you, Chinese people, for making this possible!

It's been a while since I posted my "Cat of the day" photo. Today it's a small series of pictures. First of all, let me show you the drinking rules of the house. Of course, dog and cat have their respective water bowls. But one of them decided to change the rules.
Look, this is how it's supposed to be.

Now, what's wrong with this picture?

Oh well, at least they have the same germs now.

Here is Snooker the Great.

Remarkable athlete and a basketball star wannabe.

With X-ray vision.

He must have eaten a Christmas light or two that day.
