As is probably understandable, chores pile up around here. I've just finished the dishes (days worth), have most of the laundry done except for the dry cleaning, and helped my spouse repair the breezeway gate. She's planning on taking out her carriage, and hitching up the horse tonight, if it doesn't rain. Unfortunately, no matter what the forecast says, the sky looks pretty threatening. She like doing this during the Christmas season so that folks can ride around looking at the lights and can carole. A cool neighborhood activity. Back to the laundry for me.
