Big day around the house.
Finished the draft of a new story, then attended to file keeping and submissions of a few finished pieces. Got in a little reading on the side.
Went off to the hardware store early afternoon and picked up supplies for the new tree stand I’m building. Design worked out pretty well. Put the thing together and bolted the tree to it a little while ago, and it’s standing in living room now, ready for lights and all the rest. Cats are quiet pleased with the addition.
Thought we might go out and see the Parade of Lights tonight, but decided against it when young J couldn’t come along. Figure to stay in and relax instead. Order carryout or something. Save our energy for tomorrow.
Hard to believe it’s the first of December. Glad we’re getting a jump on the decorations. Mom looks to be back here in a couple of weeks. Want to have everything in place before she arrives.
Nice shirt-sleeve kind of morning. Weather turned a little afternoon and a chilly wind blew in. I think there’s supposed to be snow tomorrow.
