Wednesday night after work, I decided to get serious about the Christmas tree. Took off all the ornaments that I was so proud of leaving on last year. Rolled up the living room rug and pulled the table the tree stands on into the center of the living room (so I could work on all sides with ease). Then I took each branch and made sure all the ends were straight and looked right. This took about an hour. Stopped there for dinner.
Heated up the rest of the turkey and the potato fennel gratin (last of all the Thanksgiving dinner leftovers). Tasted great, still!
Did one load of laundry (my "mid-week" load). Watched TV until I got bored, then read until bedtime.
