It's been cold here but no snow yet, which doesn't bother me at all. The other day I was out walking a little later than usual and I got to see the sunrise. It was subtler than it often is and I thought it was quite pretty. I love the colors.
I also got to wear my new handknit socks from my friend Kristin for the first time! She made them as a birthday present, but as my birthday is in July, it wasn't really knit sock time. I love them too!
The buds on my Christmas cactus are getting bigger and very very intense in color. They haven't quite opened yet, but I think it's going to be another great year for them. I can't think of any other plant that gives as much color and beauty with so little effort.
I was so happy to see Bentley and Blue playing together the other evening. Bentley was the one who started it too which is great since he's often an old fart. They were super frisky, but of course stopped as soon as I picked up the camera.
Blue is allowed on the sofa but not the bed. But almost every morning when I'm in the shower he hops up there because he knows I can't see him. Alas, the tell-tale bed disturbance and giant plop of him getting down are sure signs he's been at it again. Such a big dork.
I did some Christmas crafting this week too. I had to retire my beloved C9 lights after they kept blowing one fuse after another. It was sad, but probably time to switch to LEDs anyway. They certainly make me less nervous. But I couldn't bear to throw out all the C9s, so I decided to make a wreath! I just have to be careful- if I ever drop it it would be a catastrophic mess as those bulbs are super fragile glass.
I hope everyone else is enjoying December! Thanks to Lee Anna for linking us up!
