006.December 26

We spent most of the day working on our walls, and installed all the cabinets and the counter-top over and under them. Rachel began to paint the walls pea green.


We gathered over Facetime to watch John and Jodi's kids open presents with Jill, Chris, Rhonda, Lew, Rachel, and I. It was really quite fun, though I was still beat from a tiring day. I had started feeling under the weather, but got the garage cleaned out for our Polaris and snow plow to be stored in it.


After a lovely day of cleaning and reorganizing the house, Jen and Scott came over to play cribbage with us. We served Scott's Christmas Mead and a few specialty cocktails. After that, we gathered around the baby grand and sang. I also grabbed a few instruments to play along, as Rachel continued to improv on many themes. It was a lovely evening.
