They are all grown – We put up the Christmas tree this week. It is new cat Gracie’s first Christmas here. We don’t know her age for sure. I didn’t know what to expect. Total chaos? Or opportunist awe? She’s kitten-like in her play. Very active all day. She is definitely at least 2 or older. She showed no interest in all the shiny, dangly stuff. Like her feline friend Hazel, she showed more interest in the velvet skirt at the bottom. They like the way it catches cat hair. Makes it special!
Speaking of ba humbug! – I was trying to define why I don’t have the holiday spirit like I used to. The doggone traffic is one of them. Starbucks is another. I go there every day. At holiday time it’s packed. Do people only drink coffee around the holidays? Sheesh!
Speaking of cats – Our house is getting littered with boxes (plain boxes, not litter boxes). With all the deliveries, we have to sneak out the boxes. If a cat finds it, they occupy it. For a long time. I need to do some creative sneaking around.
Snow! – We had our first snow yesterday. There had been hype all week about it. It came up from the south so the southern states (which don’t normally get snow) were blanketed with the white stuff. The roads and parking lots were all prepped. I went walking in the morning and the salt was like ball bearings. I was afraid I’d trip on dry pavement. (Wouldn’t that be embarrassing?)
Last chance – Have you been getting emails about sales? Every single day it is the LAST CHANCE to get 50% off. Every. Single. Day. Buying stuff I normally use or need at a discount is one thing I like about the holidays but I could use fewer emails.
So how was your week?
