10th tea of Christmas
You know, I’ve never actually had eggnog before so I wasn’t really sure….I wasn’t sure about this tea, but it is delicious. I’m drinking it while listening to Nick Cave and finally ‘wrapping’ presents (I put everything in bags bc I’m lame and think wrapping paper is a waste, at least bags are reusable? yeah? maybe it’s actually just laziness. who knows.) and ugh, so nice. cinnamon-y. nutmeg-y. the yunnan base is /chef kiss/.
also, I’m adopting my sister’s cat that she was going to rehome to a farm in NM, where that poor cat would have been living OUTSIDE, when she had been living in a home for the past two years and was used to people providing for her. wtf. I thought that was so cruel. Percy (the cat, a girl cat that my nephew named after Percy the train) might be a fellow anxiety sufferer. she might also be stressed out due to living in a house with two loud children and two older (and one who is definitely meaner) cats, all while not having a lot of attention (other than my sister yelling at her). we’ll see how she does in a much quieter environment. I think she deserves a chance to live her best life. that, and personally, it’s been a really jarring change for me to live in a cat-less house. when I woke up yesterday, I immediately went to go check on my Spooky-cat, like I normally would and then realized that he’s not here anymore and started crying. Percy isn’t a replacement, and she will be a very different cat, but at least there will be a little creature running around and I hope that she will feel more calm and more loved.
