Charmion De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 (1392* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019 06 Dec 19


The sun is almost shining in Stratford today and I have installed a pair of my new orthotic insoles in my winter boots, so I shall take a little stroll downtown, perchance for lunch.

I have already logged my morning's fitness requirement with another pool class at the Y. That's quite a workout if you invest a little effort.

No holiday decorating is happening in this house -- hurray! It isn't that I disapprove of Christmas, it's just that we have no room for a tree and I have zero desire to clean up after one. I might really strain a nerve and put a wreath on the front door, but that will be IT.

I finished the second batch of fruitcake yesterday, so we have six wrapped and ready -- five to go and one for us. Himself's siblings have rather half-heartedly accepted fruitcakes in the past, but this year none are going to anyone who does not definitely and enthusiastically want one; they are not easy to make, and just too damned expensive (not to speak of delicious) to waste on anyone with mixed feelings about mixed fruit. My side of the family are very pro-fruitcake, phoning up around the Sunday next before Advent to enquire as to whether I might be making any, and I have an old college buddy in Toronto who rates one. Everyone else can pound sand.

The Sisters (Himself's side) are coming for a pre-Christmas visit next Wednesday, which gives me time to clean the house. The weekend is fully committed to two performances of Handel's "Messiah" and putting up my feet in between.
