A host of chores looms before me: Buying a Christmas tree. Dragging the tree home. Getting it into the house. Mounting the tree in the living room. Hauling the Christmas tree decorations up from the basement. Stringing lights on the tree. Probing for dead bulbs and replacing them. Decorating the tree. Stringing garlands and such around the house. Hauling the containers from the Christmas decorations back down to the basement. Arguing with the C.S.O. about the placement of the adornments on the tree. Redecorating the tree. And so forth.
Enjoy your Mauve Saturday, Gentle Readers, for I fear that I...shall not. I'll see you all tomorrow.
