I sent very few holiday cards this year. I either get it done around Thanksgiving or it’s a lost cause. When I did, I would sign the whole family’s names. This year, after Zoey’s, I added ‘North’s spirit’.
Only the random tumbleweed of malamute hair blows into the room anymore but the holiday brings up remembrances of North’s party energy. His best holiday trait was working the room during our holiday open houses. He was never a table food grabber, although his head easily reached. He certainly knew how to quietly approach the seasoned, as well as the new visitor, and use his big brown eyes for the Vulcan mindmeld, which deactivated the frontal lobe and resulted in a piece of ham or smoked salmon being handed to him; then on to the next victim.
Zoey is no holiday slouch either. She knows we will leave an opening in the tree skirt for her to lap up the pine infused tree water.
Did you know carefully selected pine needle tea is an excellent way to boost your immune system? Loaded with vitamin C and A. You need to know your needles (which I don’t) Not all are good for you. Listening Pines on Instagram knows her stuff. Based in Colorado Springs, she’s a certified Forest Therapy and Mindfulness Guide. ***Disclaimer…. I am not suggesting we all drink our Christmas tree water. 🥴
Good Yule to you and all your animal spirits.
