Bliss cannot be sold.
These are the last two weeks of 2020. What a year it has been. You may recall the theme for 2020 was the Year of the Tart. It certainly has been a flamboyant year. With the holidays, we’ve tried to focus on small items that bring us joy. That involved new slippers and a kit-cat klock. (You may know this from the movie Back to the Future.) Items that will bring a smile to your lips every time you see it or use it.
We also celebrated with lamb. Roasted lamb is a favorite in our house. It’s a treat for the humans and felines. Gracie comes running when she hears the carving knives come out. Lamb and veggies are a fantastic keto meal. I paired it with a lovely red wine which isn’t keto friendly. I know there are some keto wines out there, but I haven’t tried any yet. If you have a keto wine you like, post it in the comments section below.
We did splurge for a new window tower for the kitties. One that is soft, easy to clean and has places for toys, bird watching and cat naps. Burt prefers it to be positioned right next to our Christmas tree in case a birdy decides to jump out of our fake tree, but we put it by the window where the live bird feeders reside.
SkeinHerder Ponders: This week we stumbled across this article about how cats form attachments much like dogs and babies. I think this is really only surprising to non-cat owners. Working from home most of this year, we’ve discovered just how much our cats really want us to be with them. Burt and Gracie want just as much attention as Ernie. It’s less obvious and on their terms. The hustle and bustle of normal human life means we often don’t see the signs from Burt and Gracie. Ernie wears his heart on his paw.
May the new year bring you peace, bliss and joy.
