The Day After

So... the Day After New Year's Celebrations we all be like this... completely wiped out and exhausted from staying up way too late and revelry as we brought in the New Year!   *LOL*   Yes, even Miss Priss was feelin' it, since she'd been Princess T's sidekick all Night inside the house and was utterly exhausted from the sheer fright of hearing all the Fireworks going off all around us.   How is a Girl to Rest and remain Calm with all that going on!?!   

Besides, all the Fireworks had caused roosting Birds to take flight and this enormous Owl was having a Buffet Feast in all the Chaos of last Night!  So we didn't wanna risk Cat on the Menu, since the noise had freaked her out too, so she was running around out back in a complete Panic once folks started letting off Fireworks!   Animals do not understand Pyrotechnics and tho' she's not an inside Cat, she decided to join the festivities inside where it felt more Safe and Secure with her Human!

So by the time the Sun came up, both she and her Human were absolutely knackered from lack of sufficient Sleep!    No, in spite of appearances the Child is not hung over, the Child just clearly didn't get enough Sleep.  *LMAO*  The Young Prince swore he'd stayed up 'til 3:00 a.m., I don't Believe it, we never saw him after I got Home from Work and all his lights were off Upstairs in his room... the Kid had faded and was too Proud to admit it!   When a Teen Boy doesn't even come down to eat, you know he's not awake!  *Smiles*

Besides, he was the only one of us buoyant from having had enough Sleep actually, clear evidence, I rest my Case... he never made it to Midnight!  *LOL*  His little Sister on the other hand be lookin' like Assassin's Creed, bleary Eyed and peeking at me from under a Hoodie, clearly giving me the Stink Eye.  She was testy this Morning, as Tweens will be when they're operating on perhaps three hours of shut-eye.  Miss Priss was giving me the Stink Eye too, these Gals mos def Need their Beauty Rest or they're simply not having it!

Get away from us with that Camera... I finally coaxed them to eat Brunch and watch the Rose Bowl Parade with the rest of us.   I Love that Parade, it is simply Ahhhhhhmazing with those Organic Floats that are Sublime!   I've cribbed a bunch of my Favorite Float's Images from Social Media and all Credit goes to the Amazing Professional Photographers who covered the Event Live and whose Names appear under the last Image... so, in case you missed it...  be prepared to be blown away by Superb Artistry and the most vivid hues and textures, using all Organic Materials:

So, we sat and watched the Parade in our Jammies and decided nothing makes you come Alive quite like a little Retail Therapy so we hit our Antique Mall, Brass Armadillo West, for the big New Year's Day Sale Event.  You played a Game to Win up to 20% Off... I Won the 20% top Prize Off all my purchases!  *Whoop Whoop*   So I bought this Antique Apothecary Jar I've been Admiring for quite some time, to go in one of my Cabinet Of Curiosities. 

And this large Milagros Hand...

And this large Milagros Sacred Heart...

And the Oval Antique Doorknob in the foreground, which ended up being barely three dollars!    And then I took The G-Kid Force to The Wildlife World Zoo where we have an annual Membership, because they were also busy playing Pokemon Go and I guess the Zoo is snithing with whatever thingies they're capturing in that Game?!?  *Bwahahahaha!!!*
