Gray day

I just feel like I cannot get stuff together today. I guess it is all right because it is my day off. I guess I should not push it and let things go.

I have an afternoon of shopping with a girlfriend this afternoon. That should be fun. I am really looking forward to it. I am tagging along while she does Christmas shopping. I am doing what little Christmas shopping I need to do, as well.

I have to tell you about our Christmas tree. Our Christmas tree looks really strange. I will try to post a picture of it soon, but I have to at least tell you about this. We have a huge Christmas tree. It is not very tall, but it wide. I think it is almost as wide as it is tall. Very fat. It takes up a lot of space in our living room. But I love it. I have never had a round Christmas tree before. The second thing is that Oscar loves to commune with the tree. I think his favorite hobby is sticking his head in the tree and inhaling the fresh pine scent. (He has not made any moves to mark the tree, for which I am grateful!) Oscar does not eat the tree, he is just hanging out, with his head in the tree, enjoying the smells. As a result, we have no ornaments on the bottom third of our tree. At some point, I really ought to put them back on, but I am just feeling really lazy today. Maybe by the weekend.

That's so funny about your dog and smelling the tree! This year we have 2 new dogs and i was worried they would eat the ornaments, or break the bulbs, because i load the tree up with tons of stuff!, but they haven't yet (knock on wood)!!

Oscar has the right idea. Sounds like he knows how to enjoy life! Next time I am near a pine tree I am going to stick my head in and take a deep breath.
And regarding your comment on my post. I make comparisons to dogs all the time privately since I have two but I am so afraid I will offend someone who has kids. Therefore I LOVED your comment!

Our dogs leave the tree alone; that's too funny about your's putting his head in it lol

I hope you had a good afternoon of shopping
