Just a Typical Friday Night

Last night I attended a potluck party of a ladies’ Sunday school class of which I am an honorary member.

The dessert table had a treat for everyone.

By the time we got to the dessert table I was full but I took a plate home for Charlie.

The weather is chilly so a fire brigade keeps fire pits going to warm the participants and viewers.

He spent the evening lighting and tending fires for the Walk to Bethlehem.  He plans the same for tonight.

Last year for Christmas my son and his wife gave us two small Norfolk Island pines. One of them had died.

The other one I gave back to them this year and they decorated it.

Little by little we’re getting a little Christmassy. How are your plans coming along?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
