I invested in some top-of-the-line flannel sheets. After one night of sleeping on them, I have no qualms remaining about the price I paid for those sheets. Oh, talk about heaven. They are fuzzy and warm and now it is even harder to get out of bed in the mornings. I have discovered something to live by--don't buy cheap sheets. Spend the money. It's worth it and with proper care, the sheets will last for years.

It has been cold and raining-almost-snowing all day today. A good day to stay inside and nest. I made a spiced apple pie and three batches of fudge today. The house smells wonderful. It felt good to be domestic. I like baking in general, but I like it even more around the holidays.

I have most of the Christmas decor up but not the tree (this weekend for that). The outside stuff has to wait until it stops raining/slushing/whatevering outside. Also today, our first Xmas card arrived, as did our first Xmas gift.

The big kerosene heater that heats the living/dining room and kitchen has been acting up. I wonder if I need to notify Miyuki-san that the heater's gone retarded.

Worked through my remaing KUMON sheets, but I'm not sure if I want to throw in the towel or keep fighting the not-so-good fight. I guess I'll wait and see.

Sly is supposed to come over Wednesday night and we are going drink wine and get silly. Actually, all we will probably get is hung-over, but that's okay, too.
