I know I probably sound like Captain Obvious, but it’s been a few years since Ben and I put up a Christmas tree and I’d totally forgotten what it was like to have kittens and decorations.
Usually it’s just too hot for me to think it’s actually Christmas (because Christmas should be cold, don’tchaknow), and Ben usually doesn’t care one way or another.
Damara and Leon love it.
So much so that I wake up to find its lower branches almost touching the floor because they like to pull them down. They also like to fall asleep under it, which is adorable, so I can overlook the fact that I’m adjusting branches daily.
I haven’t been able to get any clear shots of them under it because it’s so darn dark under there and they’re black, so yeah. You get the picture!
The older kitties must really take after Ben, since they really haven’t paid the tree any mind.
We weren’t really going to do Christmas this year, since we’re saving for things, but now that the tree up, Ben thinks we should (so not what I had in mind by decorating). Not sure what to do there! I wasn’t planning on that happening. I’m quite alright with having no presents, since we got my new (to me) phone, and Ben got some new hiking shoes that he’s wanted for a while.
In the garden, there’s not much to report! Things are still doing the ‘growing’ thing! :) I did harvest my first strawberries a couple of days ago, though! Next time I think I’ll let them get as red as the one in the middle before I pick them — that one was a lot sweeter than the other two.
They actually look pretty festive! :)
Do you celebrate Christmas or Yule? What gets you in the holiday spirit?
