Missionz accompleeshed!

I got my two aquariums cleaned out and decorated for the holidays! The fish were really quite thrilled! The big striped one is Salvatore. He is lovin’ Santa!

Salvatore is blocking the Christmas tree. Oh well…here’s my real fake tree. It’s so delightful not having the mess of a real tree this year. We got our pines all spaced out just as they need to be, so no need to cut one down this year!

Close up on Darwin….Close up on Gree…It was a beautiful, if cold, sunny day yesterday and everyone was lovin’ it!

  1. I think Darwin sent out his bones for cleaning. Gree is so pretty!

    Darwin – the amazing melting cat, ladies and gents!

    your house is a living representation of a peaceable kingdom. at least ’til dinnertime

    Darwin is a srsly Longcat!

    Perhaps he is the fabled Tacgnol, who Longcat (usually depicted as white) must face at the end of days.

    Darwin is my fave! Thanks for the photo of him!

    Merry Fishmas to your feeshes.

  5. I noticed you have fancy veil-tailed guppies in that tank as well. Salvatore doesn’t feel inclined to use them for midnight snacks?

    (We used to have two aquariums as well. Unfortunately, one of the big fishes turned out to be carnivorous and cleaned out the large tank of all the little fishes. 😦

    Otherwise everyone looks so content in those photos. And you have sunshine!

    I don’t think that anyone enjoys a good splash of sunshine better than dogs and cats.

    Cold, sunny days are best spent indoors

    Ahhhhh, they make sleeping on the floor and window sill look more comfy than my bed! My feeshes always got happy when I cleaned the aquarium, you can just tell! Merry Fishmas to the larui clan…!

    That’s a really nice sized aquarium and it looks very festive now. I wish there was a warm sunny spot for me to lie in – we got 2-3″ of snow today. Just enough to look pretty but be a nuisance.

    I come to Lauri’s house to snuggle under the tree in a sunbeam, please.

    How nice! I put up a fake tree for the girls and Hailey said, “Grammy, you put up a bootleg tree?” HA! Bootleg? I had to crack up. I used to always have a real one when I had a man person around, but we don’t, so bootleg it is! I said, “Get over it Hailey!” lol

    Weee…wonderful photos. I love them all soaking up the sunlight. It is shining here too right now. Not to last, if they are predicting it right. Some wintry blast (sigh) again that Kerstin is currently suffering under. Darwin is a fantastic name for that cat!
    If you ever fancy a visit to he UK, we can trade houses and varmints for a week. You can be downstairs and hear Vuvu and Max running across the floor sounding like a herd of Dobermans and sleep with Rupert, snuggle Bibble and Cassie and listen to Little Bird sing “Dead Flowers” and “Walkin in a Winter Wonderland” out of tune. We will enjoy the barnyard critters, the house varmints, and maybe see the cranes.
    Seriously. We can provide refs. They will say we are slightly hippified bathe regularly animal lovers. PS Masha has a wee vintage convertible that is a hoot to drive.

    Oh and i forgot. The village pub is very nice. : D

  14. geologywoman says:

    and the candy canes in the fishtank (I nkow, they are not real) tells me a lot about you. You are a funky arty a bit to the left side lady. Well done!

  15. madtante says:

    Oy! Is it just me or did my Santa escape the white jaws of alligator-death to only get submerged into your tank?! I think it’s the SAME SANTA.

  16. LBeeeze says:

    How long will the amazing real fake Christmas tree remain on the window sill amongst the kitties??

    Santa feeeeeesh!!

  17. Lovely lovely Xmas..Peace Tony n’ CC

  18. mmm, it looks so nice and cosy! It’s pretty cold here, so I’m envying the fish their nice, heated tanks….Is Salvatore a Malawi cichlid of some sorts?

  19. Freedom Smith says:

  20. GOF says:

    Wait…that striped fish is real? I thought it was some kind of aquarium ornament with plastic candy canes attached. That’s a GORGEOUS fish!!!

    And your tree is lovely!
