I start letting my study go as Christmas approaches. It becomes a gift repository, a place to keep boxes for repurposing, and so forth.

Still have some things to do, but it doesn’t look like a bear lives in it anymore.

There are several good bowl games today, and I’m making chili for the boys and their spend-the-night company. I’ll take it, even with a gimpy knee.
