First Christmas Tree has Lights and Decorations
Since I have mentioned Christmas decorating more than once I thought I should post a pic of the first tree that is ready this year.
If you think the tree looks misshapen it is because it is a spiral topiary shape. I bought this tree probably 20 years ago and still love the shape of it. The fact that it is tall and narrow makes if perfect to put in a smaller space.
Our little white fuzzy angel, the one sleeping in the chair next to the tree, has tried to remove the ribbon garland a few times today. He gets the ribbon in his mouth and takes off running at least once a day, sometimes more. Typically I can catch him before he gets too far, but he is fast so sometimes he will get a full piece of ribbon off the tree, and take some ornaments down in the process.
Even though our felines are 8 years old they still think they are kittens and conduct them selves accordingly. We are always telling them no, or not to do something, and they continue to do as they please. I am amazed that they seem to have as much energy as ever. Remaining active throughout life is part of the breed characteristic. The felines are Turkish Angoras if anyone is interested.
Earlier today, while I still had my lovely headache, the little white baby grabbed a jewelry box that my hubby had placed under the tree in his mouth and took off running. I chased him as he ran to the bathroom to place the jewelry box in the bathtub. By the time I caught him he was holding the box with his front paws and trying to kick the bottom open with is back paws. He is certainly an enterprising little feline. Since I was afraid he would actually get the box open and eat the jewelry, the box is now safely in a drawer.
Does anyone else have animals that misbehave to this extent or have my little furry angels cornered the market on bad? Good thing they are cute and loving, because they certainly are not well behaved.
I will be back tomorrow with at least one new recipe, if not two. We are going out to dinner with our friend Phil who is in town from Springfield, Missouri so I won't be cooking.
I hope you all have a great evening.
