Left overs soup

Day 7.

Oh my dear readers it is already the seventh day of December. Where has the time gone?

I still haven't purchased a Christmas Tree, but all my other decorations are up.

Alex keeps asking me when I want to get the tree. I'm feeling reservations about having a tree this year. I'm not entirely sure why.

I love Christmas and especially the trees.

Maybe I'll get one this weekend. At least a small one. Maybe it'll cheer up the house hold.

The cats will like it. Maybe a little too much.

Well on to what we had for dinner tonight.
