A few flakes! Snowflakes that is. Snort.

 

Happy New Year!

I thought I'd end the month of quotes and begin 2007 by talking a bit about what I haven't seen yet out here. It's been unusually mild in Ontario and unfortunately we did not enjoy a white Christmas (in fact, we've only had one light dusting so far!), so to make up for it I'm going to share some quotes and facts about the lovely stuff we're NOT getting. Come to think of it, could some kitty in New Mexico have hijacked our snow? Snort.

Did you know that a snowflake's descent could take several hours, as even the heaviest flake falls no faster than one mile per hour?

Like snowflakes, the human pattern is never cast twice. —ALICE CHILDRESS

Did you know that each snow crystal can have up to 100 separate features which means that there are 1000 times more possibilities than there are atoms in the universe?

Did you know that Wilson A. Bentley was the first to suggest that no two snowflakes are ever identical? A farmer and amateur scientist, he created more than 5000 snowflake images between 1885 and 1931.

Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand—and melting like a snowflake. —MARIE BEYON RAY

Did you know that snowflakes are clear but snow is white because light bouncing off the crystals scatters into a white glare?

And finally, a saying that mom has used in her blog before, but is perfect for this entry and one that I like very much:

No snowflake ever falls in the wrong place. —ZEN proverb (Well, SOME cats might argue with that, LOL.)

Well kitties, I hope you enjoyed my collection of holiday quotes as I certainly had fun picking them out! I'm going to take a bit of a break from my diary though, while mom spends that time figuring out how to support me in the lifestyle I most certainly deserve. Snort.

Happy New Year everyone!

Back soon.

"I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month." —HARLAN MILLER

Ah, yes, if only. But perhaps we can retrieve the feelings of this past month more often during the coming year? And since today is the last day of 2006, let me leave you with this:

In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, but never in want. —Irish Toast

Have a great New Year's Eve everyone!

Today's entry is dedicated to my anonymous Rosette giver (you know who you are even if I don't, LOL) who requested some more good snorters—hope this'll do!!

The Twelve Days of Christmas

On the first day of Christmas,
When I brought home my tree,
My twelve cats were laughing at me.

On the second day of Christmas,
I saw beneath my tree,
Two mangled garlands,
And my twelve cats laughing at me.

On the third day of Christmas,
I saw beneath my tree,
Three missing Wise Men,
Two mangled garlands,
And my twelve cats laughing at me.

On the fourth day of Christmas,
I saw beneath my tree,
Four males a-spraying,
Three missing Wise Men,
Two mangled garlands,
And my twelve cats laughing at me.

On the fifth day of Christmas,
I saw beneath my tree,
Five shredded gifts,
Four males a-spraying,
Three missing Wise Men,
Two mangled garlands,
And my twelve cats laughing at me.

On the sixth day of Christmas,
I saw beneath my tree,
Six fallen angels,
Five shredded gifts,
Four males a-spraying,
Three missing Wise Men,
Two mangled garlands,
And my twelve cats laughing at me.

On the seventh day of Christmas,
I saw beneath my tree,
Seven half-dead rodents,
Six fallen angels,
Five shredded gifts,
Four males a-spraying,
Three missing Wise Men,
Two mangled garlands,
and my twelve cats laughing at me.

On the eighth day of Christmas,
I saw beneath my tree,
Eight shattered ornaments,
Seven half-dead rodents,
Six fallen angels,
Five shredded gifts,
Four males a-spraying,
Three missing Wise Men,
Two mangled garlands,
And my twelve cats laughing at me.

On the ninth day of Christmas,
I saw beneath my tree,
Nine chewed-through light strings,
Eight shattered ornaments,
Seven half-dead rodents,
Six fallen angels,
Five shredded gifts,
Four males a-spraying,
Three missing Wise Men,
Two mangled garlands,
and my twelve cats laughing at me.

On the tenth day of Christmas,
I saw beneath my tree,
Ten tinsel hairballs,
Nine chewed-through light strings,
Eight shattered ornaments,
Seven half-dead rodents,
Six fallen angels,
Five shredded gifts,
Four males a-spraying,
Three missing Wise Men,
Two mangled garlands,
And my twelve cats laughing at me.

On the eleventh day of Christmas,
I saw beneath my tree,
Eleven broken branches,
Ten tinsel hairballs,
Nine chewed-through light strings,
Eight shattered ornaments,
Seven half-dead rodents,
Six fallen angels,
Five shredded gifts,
Four males a-spraying,
Three missing Wise Men,
Two mangled garlands,
and my twelve cats laughing at me.

On the twelfth day of Christmas I looked at my poor tree
Twelve cats a-climbing
Eleven broken branches
Ten tinsel hairballs
Nine chewed-through light strings
Eight shattered ornaments
Seven half-dead rodents
Six fallen angels
Five shredded gifts
Four males a-spraying
Three missing Wise Men
Two mangled garlands
and my twelve cats laughing at me!

Let Us Keep Christmas

Whatever else be lost among the years,
Let us keep Christmas still a shining thing;
Whatever doubts assail us, or what fears,
Let us hold close one day, remembering
Its poignant meaning for the hearts of men.
Let us get back our childlike faith again.


—GRACE NOLL CROWELL
