I’ve been keeping busy, feeling like a child….time moving slowly, eager for the moment to arrive. Soon….
I put up our Christmas tree today. I love this little one, only 4 feet…lights already strung on it. On sale at Michaels several years ago, certainly was a worthwhile purchase….cost less than a few strings of lights. True, its a fake, but it works for us. This year I dug out the mercury glass ornaments that my mother gave me a while ago. They are large….and weigh alot, but on the small tree I really like them. That was my creative endeavor of the day.
This ornament is my favorite, in honor of our marvelous, cool cat before Bibbs….Tiger, aka Mr. T. He was a big boy, but the sweetest there ever was. The kids grew up with him, and he was perfect for the children…patient, affectionate, forbearing. He had a particular fondness for Jackie, who is constantly comparing the shortcomings of Bibbs to her gentleman cat. I know she still misses him.
Maybe I will have news for you later today……
