Mike (Stephen’s brother) came over in the evening yesterday to help Stephen lay down a floor in our porch (next step, moving the washer and dryer up from the basement and into the porch wooh). They didn’t finish but they made a good start. We had grilled chicken fajitas and leftover Spanish rice for dinner. Then, in the evening, I made some creamy rice pudding.
Tonight my mother in law is having Willow at her house. Stephen and I are going to buy our Christmas tree and then go out for a meal together. I know it’s not the best time to buy trees but I really don’t want to bring out the ugly, white, missing-half-it's-branches tree that we use every year. It’s done. And now I want a nice green tree! This one will also be temporary though. We’ll get a nice big beautiful tree once we move into a bigger house.
