On the Tenth Day of Christmas...

...we worked on taking down the Christmas tree, and cleaning up around the place.
Hi-Hi helped. Being his typical modest self, he didn't want to be shown packing ornaments or taking down lights, so he ducked the camera.
Oh well. He's still pretty!
Simon helped too. Simon's idea of helpful is to stay out of the way, thus avoiding being stepped on. He did, however, convince me that it's a good idea to leave the shredder unplugged. No, he didn't get shredded, nor did he get tail fur caught in the blades (again). He just jumped off the computer table, and turned it on, once again.

No more of that. So here he is, being helpful in his own way.
The pillows and afghan are a present from D4. I'm thinking they are going to stay around for a while longer, since they are really more "winter" than "Christmas."
I was a bad floozy today, didn't cast on anything or even wind any yarn. I'll try to make up for lost time tomorrow, though, since it will be back to work and back to chasing Li'l Missy A around. The segue to that is that once I've done that, I'll be ready for some good couch time.
Besides, there's a new season of The Bachelor starting. Talk about a cheese and whine fest! Oh yes, there will be good TV this week--new season of The Biggest Loser starts on Tuesday (thank you, DVR, for making it possible for me to watch it even though I'll be teaching that night!) and we've already started the Miss America reality show. These are perfect knitting shows--they capture that percentage of brain that isn't engaged in the knitting, so I can sit still and get lots done!

Isn't it nice to have helpers around when there is a big job to do? I was so "appreciative" of the AGK and all his "assistance" as I struggled with the tree dismantling.

Why can't more kitties be like the BFK and Simon? They know that the best way to help is to leave it all to the humans!

Thank goodness for cats -- they always let us know what needs doing, right? And I'd definitely leave the pillows out, they look great!
