All tied up!

Bloggie friends!!

It felt so good to have a full day in bed just reading!!

I can finally cross one book off from my “to be read” pile of books that has been growing – worryingly - up to the ceiling all year! I seriously didn't think I'd have the time or energy to read them all!

Now on to another tome! Yay! Bring ‘em on!!

Charlie says: While you read, I play with my Christmas string!


Charlie says: Thank you Santa for my Christmas string!


We hope everyone is having a great day too! I'm still on holiday! Hoorah!

I'm glad you were able to get through a book!

Melissa Gill said...

I too spent the day reading. I really needed that!

Katnip Lounge said...

I have a serious case of the envies! I was up at silly o'clock this morning to get to work by 6 AM. I'd much rather be lying around playing with string.

Brian said...

We had a great Christmas and I'm happy that you and Charlie had a great Christmas too! Nice looking Christmas string Charlie!

Oh wow, Kitty...you READ? Tommy has a stack of books too. I think she just has them to---well---she just has them. I never see her open up any of of them. Charlie's lucky you actually read...and he's lucky to have a string to play with. Can I come visit? My house is dull...

'I do so hope that one day you shall paws long enough to read one of my books. Of course, it needs to be 'pawblished', first!' 'Arf, arf!'
Nice to see Charlie in the photo, 'no strings attached' lol.
Have a really nice holiday, both of you.
Love and cuddles, Penny xx

Caren Gittleman said...

Charlie be careful with that string! You don't want to get tangled!
Oh I can sooo relate about the giant stack of books that you had. I am the same way with magazines.
I subscribe to magazines that I NEVER get a chance to look at because of reading blogs, etc. I have some from the SUMMER that I have yet to read!
As soon as I catch up with the books I have to read I will get back to the magazines.
Just know that you are NOT alone!

Jenn said...

Mmm, reading in bed all day sounds heavenly!

I love how cats are so easy to buy gifts for--they're easily amused by the cheap stuff. Buy them expensive toys and they give it a sniff and walk off.

Medeia Sharif said...

I'm still on holiday, too. :)

I'm now in the mood to give my cats some string.

Happy Holidays!

Santa got Charlie's present just right, I see!

Kea said...

That string looks like a lot of fun!

Congrats on finishing a book! I had plans to spend the days off doing lots of reading, but as usual those plans haven't quite come to fruition. LOL.

Jackee said...

A full day of book reading in bed! How awesome! That, to me, sounds like a true vacation/holiday. Enjoy!

Hugs,
Jackee

I like to sped a day or two in bed from time to time too - although it can make my back ache.

Happy holiday to you and Charlie,
from Boonie and the lovely Mrs S

Tracy said...

Oh Charlie, isn't it wonderful to be thrilled by such simple things in life? I'm so glad you could spend the day in bed which is kinda what we did yesterday. AFter romping in the snow we watched movies all day long; on the couch and in our jammies!
Today its time to get up and move around the world! Enjoy your Monday!

Hannah and Lucy said...

A day in bed reading - that sounds so relaxing not to mention enjoyable. May be you can get some more books read before your holiday comes to an end.
Charlie you look as though you are having such fun with your string.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Theresa Milstein said...

I'm glad you're getting in some reading. That's what I was doing last night and this morning.

String - cats are easy to entertain on the cheap!

Marg said...

Oh Charlie we love to play with strings too. What a great present for Santa to bring. They really are a lot of fun. Take care you two and read another book.

KarenMcG said...

Charlie,

That is a very interesting-looking piece of string. You certainly know how to use it, too!

Glad "Old Kitty" got to spend a day in bed reading. What fun.

We're thrilled to see you at Kittens 'n Things.

Madeleine said...

Bless Charlie and his magic Christmas string! Glad you finished a good read too :O)

Sammy and Andy said...

Hi, sweeties!!! Mama used to read a lot, but her eyes are so tired anymore that when she gets done blogging and visiting, they need resting.

What a great string, Charlie....you are one handsome mancat, dear friend.

Madeleine said...

BTW I've added a picture of Borage kittie to my latest post :O)

Look at Charlie and his wonderful Christmas string! Is there anything better than string, really?

Hope you had a good one! Enjoy the rest of the holidays.

O.K.,
I'm so glad you're having a great time being able to concentrate on reading. You're so lucky. I'm happy that you're enjoying your well-deserved holiday.

It also seems that Charlie enjoys playing w/ simple toys! :)

String is the best gift! We're so happy you got a perfect gift from Santa, Charlie!

I think Blogger at my comment. I thought I said that being home is wonderful and that Christmas string is terrific Charlie!

The Golden Eagle said...

I spent a lot of time reading as well--it's nice to be able to kick back and chip away at that TBR. :D

LTM said...

Here's to holiday reading~ <3

Have a restful week this week and enjoy just being at home with Charlie. Sounds like you two had a great Christmas.

Claudia said...

Lucky you, Old Kitty!
One of my friends gave me a book for Christmas and I promised I would read it ;) and I checked out two books from the library. Darn!
Hope to read these 3 books before I go back to work :(
Charlie, you look handsome as always. Happy New Year!

Mr Puddy said...

Charlie, You have a very special mom, do you know that ? She have a brilliant multitask !!!! Can read the book and play string with you in the same time. I wish my mom can do that !

Reenie said...

Yaay, I'm still on my vacation too! And I will be till the new year!

But I'm already sad that it will be over then. Sigh. :)

The Words Crafter said...

I know just how you feel. I read a book yesterday and felt so accomplished!

Wouldn't it be nice if we were all as excited about string as cats are?

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Isn't life grand when a string can make you happy? Charlie makes me happy! :)

Jayne said...

Yeay Charlie and his Christmas String! My cats had two Christmas Empty Boxes to play in, and loved them far better than anything else (apart from Nibbles and Treats, of course).

Ann said...

Hope your Christmas was filled with joy!
