Mancat Monday: We Did the Furniture Shuffle

mancat monday brian 01042021

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by for our first Mancat Monday of the New Year. And here’s a nice big howdy to 2021, I hope you are going to be nice to everybody, we’d all like that lots and it’s not what we’re used to after last year.

I mentioned a while back that the chair, the couch and some end tables do the shuffle for Christmas, now they are shuffling back to their original spots. As much as most of us love the Christmas Tree, it’s nice to have things back where the belong. Us kitties aren’t too big of fans of shuffling anything.

We still have lots of our Christmas decorations up since it’s still the Season, but the Christmas Tree and the outside decorations went into hibernation until the end of the year. Y’all have a terrific Monday. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

We re-shuffled our furniture around now that the tree is down too Brian and while it was FUN to sleep under that tree – it’s also nice to have that room nice and “orderly” again!

I’m the only one who just loves the Christmas tree, but it has gone away here too. There is a lot more space in the living room without it. Change keeps us all wondering, right?

Same here, things slowly get back to normal decoration wise, and the furbabies love it.

Most of our decorations are packed away too.
A few still remain like the big glass blocks with lights inside .
It is nice to have more light at this dark time of year 🙂

Happy Monday, Brian. We had decorations out on the main level, but they’ve all been put away except for some warm white LED lights to lend some cosy cheer to the dark evenings. Derry didn’t offer to help; Nicki was the “helper” in the house. LOL. Take care and have a great week.

That shuffling things around is not easy on some folks, be glad that you don’t have to do it! But I understand, I like it when things are back to normal.

It’s always good to put things back where they belong. That’s happening in our neighborhood too. Lots of folks out taking decorations down.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Scritches to all your siblings and my best to your peeps. ♥

Brian you look spiffy today! Sad in a way to see the decorations put away but it’s also good to have things reshuffled back to their regular places!

Our tree is still up. Peepers says it HAS to stay up ’til Little Christmas, at least, but if we’re bein’ honest, and if it’s gonna be like last year and the year before and the year before that… It’ll be up ’til at least February. It IS pretty. MOUSES!

We did the same shuffle here. Our big box got moved to a different part of the house and the dining chair went back to it’s corner.

All the Christmas things have been stored away here too except for the wreath on the door and the old-fashioned sled on the porch. Mom says she is happy to finally have a regularly scheduled week. She had to look at the calendar to figure out what day of the week it was between all the Eves and holidays:)

It’s true that, however lovely the Christmas tree is, it does take up a lot of room!

Super cute photo, Brian. All our decorations remain in place. Mom will do the trees last. She plans to start taking down window candles and garlands on Thursday! Mom found an ornament from the tree with the non-breakables in the bedroom this morning. That is the first time any kitty has touched anything on the tree.

We got rid of our tree yesterday. And we immediately wrestled in the empty spot! Marv went all crazy pants and attacked everybody! (he hates change). Brian, you look like a sphinx! Mom says you would make a great painting!

Brian, I noticed that lots of folks took down their outside holiday lights already!
Usually, we have cold, wintery weather, and those lights stay out until March, but some folks got to them during the brief snow-free days we’ve had.

Our tree is coming down mid-week. My human is ready to buckle down and make 2021 amazing!

It’s sad when the Tree comes down, but it is special in part because it’s only here part of the year, and a small part at that.

When my parents took down the tree they put stuff back in the wrong place. It is very disconcerting.

It feels like a furresh beginning with everything in order, doesn’t it, Brian? You’re looking cute today btw. Extra Pawkisses for you all🐾😽💞

We still have our little tree up. I’m in no big hurry to put it away but I know I need to do that. I hate keeping it up too long but I will miss it when it’s goes in to hibernation as you put it. Happy New Year to you, your furblings, mom, and dad!

We love the decorations and all, but we also love getting back to normal (we’re still working on that too).
