Finney watches Buddy from my lap. It’s all about the food. I wish weight wasn’t an issue and I could just feed and feed and feed them. Knock yourselves out, guys. Food all the time forever.
I just turned on itunes. Time for a list! Some of my Christmas music favorites:
Amahl and the Night Visitors
Snoopy and the Red Baron Christmas
The Bing Crosby/David Bowie Duet
Anything by Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland
Il Est Ne, Le Devin Enfant
Actually, I’m bored with this list! What’s a better list? I pulled out some Christmas books to read.
Silent Night by Mary Higgins Clark
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
The Cat Who Came for Christmas by Cleveland Amory
A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote (short story)
I should explore more stories in this collection that has the Capote story. It’s called A New Christmas Treasury. The Capote story is lovely, but sad. The Cat Who Came for Christmas is hysterical. A Christmas Carol, well, everyone knows the story, but the book itself, if you haven’t read it, is edgier than most movie versions, and Silent Night, I don’t remember if it’s any good, but hopefully it will be fun.
