What's Popping?

I wrapped my Christmas gifts today. I find the wrapping part very cathartic, although I am very much lacking in the talent department. My grandma can wrap presents like perfection... you don't even want to open the gift, because the crisp corners and perfect tape placement are a gift of inspiration in and of themselves. That beautiful wrapping gene went to my sister, J., so I just do my best and cover my mistakes with ribbon & bows.

Had my hair cut today & it feels so lovely and light. I have been contemplating dyeing it with henna to get a red tone - has anybody else tried this? Any tips?

Lastly, I want to share this photo of our degus, Chip and PIN, sleeping in their sheepskin hammock. I seriously want a hammock like this for myself:

I suspect I wouldn't look nearly so cute though. Anyway, we got a basket of that holiday popcorn, kettle corn and chocolate drizzle, etc. I was mindlessly eating it while watching NCIS, and ate way more than a proper serving... I should probably go drink some water.


  1. I've never seen or heard of those critters they are soon cute!

    1. They are from Chile, also known as bush-tailed rats. We've had them about two months now & they really are adorable! They are super hyper though, so you have to keep a sharp eye out when you are holding them... we've had a few frantic "quick catch it!" moments!
