By Monday evening things were looking very bare.
Tuesday morning we cleaned. Then I began to replace the Santa collection with the pottery collection
and all of Tom's pop-up book collection is back on the shelves.
In the kitchen the Christmas garlands are gone and I hung up my collection of antique advertising utensils.
It's a very dismal day, dark, with steady light rain and 40°, a good day to be working inside.
The outdoor lights are still up, but now that the frost on the roof is gone, Tom will just need a break in the rain to get them down and stowed away.
After all of that was done, and since going for a walk was not a very attractive idea, I did ten miles on the stationary bike, while I finished a book on my Kindle.
Now the soup base is done for pozole for tonight's dinner, and tomorrow night's as well. Good comfort food for a dreary January day.
All is good.
