We're rearranging the living room to set up the Christmas tree.
 
This morning, Mr. Thipu moved the recliner.  In the process he knocked over a delft plate that was a souvenir from Amsterdam.  The noise sounded as if the thing shattered. 

We fished it out from behind the big old-fashioned floor speaker and it was in perfect condition. There wasn't a chip on it.  Even the plastic stand that came with it was undamaged.

May your Holiday preparations go so well.     

Sooooo potentially cat-proof.  Hmmmmmmm ;D

Christmas music on my iPod, playing on my Bluetooth speaker at work.  8)

 FREE PIE!

Around Thanksgiving we received a post card from a local realtor offering free pie at a popular bakery.  We expected, perhaps, a free slice. 

No.  We received a full-sized, scrumptious apple pie at least four inches high.  It would have cost at least 15USD if we purchased it.

2 more work days before my vacation.
After that, I come back and work a week, then have 10 days off during our holiday closure.

It's raining, which is much needed, we are in pretty serious drought conditions.
