Tree up, decorated.
Laundry, caught up.
Bread cubes (for dressing), dry.
House cleaning, begun. (Let’s face it, it’s never finished.)
Big dinner menu, ready (enough).
Package mailing, accomplished.
Gifts, needs work.
Wrapping, hah, hardly begun (see above).
Best so far: JCB and I sat quietly with the tree last evening, in the dim light, smelling the pineyness, sipping ’tinis. Life is good.
Bonus for you: no comments on legislative doin’s.
