Happy Winter Solstice!

Well, if the weather stays all Winter like it is today, you will not hear me complaining. Not very likely, but one can always hope. I have been a bit under the weather the last few days but I am feeling better today and here is this year's Yule Log. I used a different icing this time because I was not happy with the buttercream one last year. Seconds after I snapped the photo Mr. Moose grabbed one of the holly sprigs and made me chase him all the way into the bedroom. I love cats. Never a dull moment around here. Later I will make a big pot of mulled cider with various fruits in it and something sunny (yellow) for dinner.

Speaking of cats, there is a new kitty hanging out in my back yard, watching the bird feeder. It sure is pretty and not very shy. I wonder if new people moved into the neighborhood and it is their cat or if it was dumped. It does not look like a stray and does not seem to be hungry, I offered food twice and it did not accept it. For now I call it No. 9 (my cats are going to kill me if I bring in another one, but that is a different story).

Yes, if this is the coldest weather we have for winter, I will be very happy also. Your yule log is beautiful and I bet it tastes wonderful. It seems like fall went by so quickly. I loved every minute of those wonderful fall days. Hope #9 has a home and has not been dumped. Since it refused the food you offered, that makes me think it may be a new cat in the neighborhood.
