Goodbye 2015 Hello 2016

As 2015 comes to a close it is a time to reflect and to set goals. I create new lists and start going through seed catalogs planning next's years blooms. We spend New Years Day quietly at home. A nice breakfast then we put all the Christmas stuff away. I am so ready, but the tradition has always been New Years Day for us. I never put it up until after Thanksgiving. I have noticed how many of my blog land friends put it up earlier and then right down after Christmas. When do you do yours?

 My boys are looking for their gifts. My two older cats check out every gift as it goes under the tree and the little one was so curious.

 My girlfriend gave me this cute cup for my morning coffee~
 Christmas Eve was so warm here 70 degrees. The cat was out and the hens were taking dust baths. We were outside taking every bit of warm air in. In the 43 years we have been in this house I never remember sitting outside on Christmas eve. Especially with out a coat on.

 The sweet little one who turned out to be a boy so he is called Fluffy. He stayed by my side all the while I was sick. Lots of loves and purring. He is just a wonderful cat!
 The girls got the seed ring and notice the clear plastic wind break too. They needed it yesterday as the rain whipped and it was raw and cold. They stayed snug as a bug in a rug.....of course no bug would survive my girls!

Did you make the seed ring or buy it? My daughter is in Costa Rica for a week and some one is babysitting animals and chickens. I'll bet they would like a seed ring. She doesn't do as well with her animals as you do.

Oh my, I deleted my comment, I guess. Did you make or buy your seed ring? My daughter needs one for her ladies. She doesn't take as good of care of her chickens as you do.
