The spouse is out with "the boys" hanging out with other "boys", so it's a nice quiet afternoon. The kitten just woke up from her post tea nap, and I gave her to Eric the Red for a bath and a cuddle. It's dang chilly outside, but G brought in plenty of firewood before he left, so between a ticking stove and a few strategic candles for visual warmth, we're all cozy. I love this time of year. With a new audio book on the machine in the kitchen, I'm ready to put a couple of salmon slabs in the oven and maybe wrap some presents to stick under the tree.
