While storm clouds gathered overhead & cold air swept in from the north,
I convened a family meeting on the fur blankets in front of the roaring fire place in my mind. Duties were assigned, warm milk was lapped, plans made.
There was much staring into water pooling on the patio furniture. Some members of the cat posse chased other, smaller members. Wrestling and tumbling ensued. Cupcake liners were flattened. Crepe paper cut into circles. Garlands assembled. Some of the liners were carried off and shredded by sharp teeth into confetti. I ignored these shenanigans.
Winter deserves her own party and decorations after all. And there are more squalls and water spouts stirring just off shore. More hail will fall. It may snow. Schools may close. Every possibility is in place for winter to unspool right here in the city of angels. I am eager to play my role of trapped cottage dweller. Very eager.
I think a string of twinkling lights will be a handsome addition to my garland. Twinkling lights have starring roles in winter dramas.
