As I experienced the full retail force of the upcoming Christmas season, Pepper put up our tree this week with a festive bee and Steller’s Jay theme. She even got some blown glass peanut ornaments from Etsy to faux-feed the glass Jays. She really outdid herself this year, it looks amazing!
Probably stemming from my general holiday tiredness, I was fascinated to learn that the Swedes have a word for irritating small talk: dödprat (“dead talk”).

The book Pepper used to explain her ranking system for books based on price and quality.
Here’s a little tree flocking for your moment of zen.
Thank you for reading and listening!
