The pooch seems to have recovered from whatever ailed him. And I'm about recovered from that full day of cooking - I didn't cook a thing today except warm leftovers. Tomorrow I have more cooking to do and that's plenty soon enough.

eBay has been picking up since it's cold out and more people are poking around on the computer during the holidays. I have to keep puttering with those listings.

My daughter asked for an organizing book on her xmas list this year, the one by Marie Kondo; the reviews of this book lead me to believe the content is rather esoteric so I gave her partner my favorite organizing book, Don Aslet's Clutter's Last Stand. He has a straightforward approach and discusses the psychology of why we keep and fail to discard so many things. The kids know that if there are old things around here that they no longer want and they are found to sell on eBay that I'll add ours into play and send it out the door.

Finishing paperwork and doing some filing as a year-end activity, and keeping the dogs in when the neighborhood fireworks start. And as I flip over to Antiques Roadshow their first items this evening are fine art found in thrift stores by the woman who brought them in. Oh, my.
