Morning reading. I think Celeste is enjoying her book more than I’m enjoying mine, but then she gets to chew on hers when she get frustrated by it.

Given my propensity for absent-mindedly drinking whatever’s in front of me, I feel like it’s just a matter of time before this arrangement leads to disaster.

2019 was a pretty stellar year, personally, aside from an abysmal December. We’re just declaring January a do-over for that.

Made fresh pasta for Christmas dinner, and it developed a few tears that look like Christmas trees. 🎄

Took some video on a walk this morning. This was pretty representative. Actually, of most of my walks.

It’s hard to beat the Northeast in winter when all the trees look like ice sculptures.

Newspaper clipping from 1939. I love the phone numbers: UNderhil 3-1588, TRemont 2-6455. If you need me, you can reach me at TUndra 6-5742.

I’ve been hearing lots of good things about the mandalorian, so I broke mine out for salad prep. I think it lives up to the hype; made short work of those carrots and radishes.

It didn’t stick around, but I appreciate the effort, Oregon. That’s a good way to start December.
