There is a high level of energy in this house. It’s almost Christmas!
I’m at the point where the amount of stuff I have to do pretty much equals the amount of time left. I feel some procrastination coming on. Have you completed your list? Go ahead and tell me you had your shopping done since July and everything is wrapped and embellished with tiny pinecones you collected on a nature hike.
We have had a crazy December so far, everyone is busy with performances and parties. The military loves a holiday party. We have one more to go and so far I haven’t embarrassed myself too much, though now that I said that I will probably make up for it.
Everyone is busy except for him:
He is pretty lazy.
He is nearly 14 and it took me this long to realize he likes Christmas. He knows all the routines and often puts himself in the middle.
He knows I’m going to yell at him for chewing ribbons, I think that is why he does it. He also knows that I will snuggle with him in bed even though he makes my eyes get red and itchy. He knows if he meows REALLY LOUD in the upstairs intercom at night I will get up and make sure he has food.
This picture is for his cousin Earl in Ohio.
He lays like this in front of the stove, I’m not sure if it’s gross or funny.
I hope you’re enjoying the countdown to Christmas.
Peter (the cat) says he hopes you’re feline well and have a Meowy Christmas.
