Another celebration in the Day of the Life. Yesterday Becky arrived at my house with a stray cat in a carrier than an ex-boyfriend has given her to keep until she can find it a home. For six weeks now, she has been trying to convince me that I need another sweet little animal...lol..NOT.
My dog is 9 and Mocha is 6. They barely tolerate each other, let alone a hotshot little one coming into the midst. Poor little Squeaks was traumatized. Mocha evilly hissed at him. Grizzly behaved but only because Joey and I were standing guard. So much for my decorations and tree yesterday. We barely made it to Walmart and back. Poor Mama Becky was totaly distraught because her cat was in the carrier behind our bar in the familyroom for safety's sake.
She did stay long enough to discuss my tree dilemma. My tree in the livingroom for the past couple of years has been one of those really skinny ones with the tree bark up the middle and thin branches. It looks like I could have picked it out of the woods right behind us. I have birds, snow and white lights on it. That will go in the livingroom for one more year. It's getting just a bit ratty but I should be able to ressurrect it one more time. Besides that, my livingroom theme is country/eclectic with lots of cute and unique plush snowmen. I buy a new, unique one every year.
I'm buying a new tree after Christmas. This will go in my diningroom. I'm planning on having a new patio door installed in the next few months. My diningroom has a religious theme so that's what the tree will be. It will look beautiful through the patio door, once I get one that is not totally fogged.
I'm waiting until Wed. when I'm off to do the livingroom. I don't want to be rushed. My live tree will be bought probably around the second week of December. I'm a bit nervous about my keepsake ornaments in the attic because there was a critter up there this past spring. But, if they are ruined, it's only material and can be replaced. Of course....LOL...not without some OCD crying on my part but I'll get over it.
And, yes, there will be pictures. Joey has a digital camera. He needs a new battery for it.
So, off I go to give Miss Megan a shove to get her stuff for school packed before we go to my BF's for another feast. BTW: Jeff, he did invite me over yesterday evening to "help" him out. Nice nite....he's the best BF!
Hoping you're all starting to feel the warmth of the season.....chris
