I used to keep small tubs of Play-Doh around my apartment, just to open them up and smell them from time to time. The scent is very comforting. I stopped doing that years ago, and I’d totally forgotten about it, but I was shopping yesterday and there they were, so affordable and friendly.
Coming up next weekend, my big yearly holiday cleaning. I’ve decided to get a tree this year, probably artificial. The hell with the cats knocking it over. I just won’t put any ornaments on it. Or tinsel. Or garlands. Or anything they can chew or choke on, or break. I will chance lights, however.
