And most of the CHristmas decorations are up. We had one oops last night, a vase set too near a door — which I knocked over; but it’s a metal vase and the greenery is all fake—us allergy sufferers can’t use the real stuff. But Jane’s got the place looking like a Macy’s window.

We’re just about ready for Christmas. I think it’s going to be my scratch-made pizza for Christmas dinner and Jane’s favorite chili and spaghetti for New Year’s!
