Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m at home, puttering with the cats and kittens, and having my yearly debate: get a tree? Don’t get a tree? As usual I went with don’t get a tree. I was thinking I might get a tree and then not hang anything on it but lights. Except maybe the cats would try to eat the tree and one of the pine needles might get stuck in their throats and they’d choke to death.

Such went my holiday thinking of the day so far.

  1. I gave up on getting a tree two years ago when I realized that I did not want to spend two days of my staycation decorating and undecorating. I’d rather be reading.
