Ahh the Holidays. Let the Silly Season Begin!
With the holidays come visitors, relatives and that nice stray person you spontaneously invite to have dinner when you find out they are spending the day alone.
That is really what this time is about. Reconnecting and fellowship. Fun and over-eating. Or if your naturally grumpy, bringing up old arguments and traditional family fights. I prefer the fun and over-eating part.
To deal with the grumpy and negative people I have learned a new mantra, it goes like this; "I am nuetral like Switzerland, I am nuetral like Switzerland, La, La, La,..." Repeat this silently to yourself when cornered by some dark cloud, scan for an exit, give them a big hug and flee!
This years first holiday guest is a little black and white Shitzhu puppy named Scruffy that we are babysitting. Roxie is fantastically happy to have a playmate as energetic as she is. They really are a hoot to watch!
Syd the cockatoo, is also watching them very closely, kind of like he is thinking up recipes or something. Am very greatful that Syd can't operate the oven.
The house is loud and alive with the thunder of puppy feet, squawking parrots and laughing humans. The season is here and I hope it's nice outside next week so we can decorate.
Be Kinder than necessary with others.
Everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
Peace from the blog porch.
