9548 – Saturday

It’s here! Minimum of muss and fuss. Shaun had his tree picked out and cut down before I even got there.

We introduced Shaun to "Crabs for Christmas", and a good time was had by all. After getting the tree up, we paused for some Chinese food – some of the best I’ve had. I think the secret to little panda is to not go on Sunday – I suspect that the regular cook takes that day off.

I was very fortunate that Larry brought his own saw – the one provided wasn’t up to snuff.

BHK figured out a good place for the tree, the far side of the living room. Traffic shouldn’t be too much of a problem there, and it smells so good!

Easy getting this year – measured twice, cut once – and then cut again when we got home, to fit and make fresh for water.


We got our tree. Not decorated yet, but I rather like it unadorned at the moment.

BHK, the in-laws and I watched "Love, Actually" and by that time, it was too late to hang lights or ornaments, which is fine by me!
