Well, Christmas break started on Saturday for me. Actually, you could argue that it started earlier, because on Friday I went with Aggie Christian Grads to view “The Nativity”. Was a pretty good movie. Later, we we got together and shared what amounted to too many deserts. Below is a group shot of most of the people there (I am on the left): Although I have still done some research while here, it is nice to have a bit of a break. Two days ago, I saw some deer in the field next to the house. I tried to sneak up on them with the camera, but I managed to scare them before I could really get some good shots. I did managed to get a bit of a blurry shot of one leaping over the fence. Maybe next time I can be more quiet:
My parents have managed to tame some of the wild cats who would live around here. The first, which they named “Guest Kitty” has gotten really tame and would hang around quite a bit. As you can see in the picture above, she is starting to get a little fat. I think that is mostly because she just hangs around the house most days sleeping away. Poor kitty is likely used to eating as much as she can get, when she can get it, and isn’t used to regulating her eating as much. Also, the fact that she has recently been fixed doesn’t help her out much either.
Missie is really upset at the kitties invading her territory. She seems to want to fight them off and leave the place to her:
