Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, everyone.

I wasn't able to visit my family this year due to work, but that doesn't mean that I didn't have a wonderful holiday. I got to sleep late, have a big breakfast, and watch movies with Hannah. Don't worry, I also called my family to wish them a Merry Christmas.

I'm a crazy cat lady, which you probably already knew, so Hannah had a stocking to open this morning filled with cat toys and treats.

Hannah dived right in. The smell of cat nip was irresistible. 
She also got a new litter box (partly a gift for me, as it meant I didn't have to scrub her dirty litter box clean) and enjoyed some people chicken for dinner. It was possibly the best day of her little kitty life. Toys, cat nip, treats, people food, and plenty of naps...what more can a cat ask for?

I think it is safe to say that she was a fan of her new toys.
As a child, one of my favorite parts of Christmas was piling into the family car and driving around to look at Christmas lights.

I decided to relive this tradition in my own way by going for a run tonight before dinner to look at the lights. It was surprisingly warm and nice outside, so in addition to seeing some great decorations, I had a really enjoyable run. I actually overdressed, thinking it was going to be colder than it actually was, so I found myself tying my jacket around my waist and stuffing my hat and gloves into my waist band. I really need to get better about checking the weather BEFORE I leave for a run.

Some people really went all out when it came to their decorating.
It was actually really nice having nothing to do and nowhere to go today. It is very rare for me to have nothing on my schedule. My evening run was a wonderful finish to a relaxing day.

I hope that your day was as pleasant and comfortable as mine was.
