Just a few DAYS ago, I was still able to find a spot to snooze under our Christmas tree…..now it’s getting a little dangerous under there. Scooting around under there finding a nap spot could cause an avalanche of boxes! I’ve decided in order to safely enjoy the ambiance of my Christmas tree, I’ll just nap on the rug in front of it. Mom kindly obliged by putting a piece of my newest favorite thing – the newspaper – on the rug and I just curl up on that. No sense risking life and limb by going under there!!
Not all this stuff is for me you know. Mom and Dad have things under there too. I heard Dad say he’s finally finished shopping yesterday so I think all that wrapping stuff will go back in the closet for another year. Not before I talk Mom into giving me a fresh piece of tissue though – I need something to mess around with until Christmas day. That’s when I’ll get all those boxes and ribbons, and of course MORE tissue to play with when my parents open their gifts.
Yesterday Mom got something to drink out of the refrigerator – something I’ve never been really curious about before, but thought maybe I should “re-consider”…..when she sat down in her chair with her drink I hopped up and asked if I could sniff it. Well – it sure SMELLED yummy…..she said it was eggnog and that it was something I shouldn’t have because it’s not good for me. WELL! Since when have I paid any attention to THAT???? I gave her “the look” and she dipped her finger in her glass and held it out for me……….I gave it a sniff then a lick and while it was interesting I thought it was too sweet and funny tasting. I guess that’s the last time I’ll be trying EGGNOG!!!!
Today’s Saturday of course and it’s cold here…in the thirties….still no sign of snow but at least I know that Santa doesn’t mind if it’s snowing or sunny and hot – he’s magic !!
