O half-lit Tannenbaum

I was going to post yesterday, but time got away from me… I spent a good part of the day recovering my fubar’d music folder. Either iTunes or my Zen software was re-arranging things, and making duplicates of duplicates. It was a mess, but luckily I had a backup elsewhere. Unfortunately it wasn’t in 100% good shape so I had to mess around with it for a few (several) hours. Now I’ll have to do some experimenting to see which program is doing what and why.

We got the rest of our Christmas lights up on Sunday. In the dark nights of winter I think the lights give passers-by (and me) a little brightness and cheer. We will have to shop around for a few more coloured strings, as the tree has grown so much we can only do half of it!

I can’t wait for “Charlie Brown Christmas” to hear the song.

With the colder weather Kabira has been asking for her outfit (pyjamas). The night before she milled around the side of the bed until I got up to put them on her. Last night I called to her that it was time for bed and did she want her outfit on? She raced down the hall and couldn’t stick her head into them fast enough. Although they make her itchy (her ridge), she likes to be warm.

She’s been on the liquid glucosamine/chronditin/msm mixture for 6 weeks now and she continues to show improvement. She is racing around outside like she hasn’t done for months. No placebo effect possible – it is obvious to onlookers that she is moving more, and more freely.
