It was a lovely, low-key Christmas this year. Nothing big. Coupla gag gifts, much goofing around.
This is my favorite Christmas ornament/figurine. It’s a simple wood carving, hand-painted. I like his quirky expression. It takes me back in time.
And so it goes, another chapter in the ongoing saga of my plumbing, um, issues. This time it’s a trifecta. Tub drain slow (again). Toilet leaking (again). Toilet lever busted (again). I don’t even use that bathroom! What’s up with that? Well, just to prove that I am a fairly handy guy, here is photographic evidence of some of my handiwork, with a bonus “ick” factor.
Gotta tweak the exposure. May have to actually open the owner’s manual.
It must be December. The first chili of the season, featuring chorizo, ground pork, ground beef and the usual suspects. Yeah, this photo isn’t the most flattering. We’ll have updates on how it turns out. I’m thinking the chorizo is gonna make this rock.
