Saturday Chill Time. With Six Stockings

How fast before Ethan hits the Floor?
I finished up the majority of the work painting the hallway.  I didn't really use the ladder that the Landlords provided because it simply was not the right type or tall enough.   I really needed something that would lean against the wall.   Ah well,   I still managed to get stuff painted; although I would have liked to have been able to go around the top most trim without dripping paint on it.

Putting the handrail back on. 
I finished putting up the hand rail and light switches.  All that is left now is the area under the stairs and the laundry section.  I'll see if I can finish that next week.

Almost completely closed.
Hiro is feeling better and his open gash is finally closing.  Most of his medication has been used up and now we simply have to run out the clock on his antibiotics.  The bad news is that he will have to continue to wear his fashionable collar until it has fully scabbed over.   With a little luck,  he will be able to remove it by the next weekend.

He seems to be handling it better than imagined.   He bumps into things and has some trouble trying to jump up on the couch.  But, for the most part, he is able to eat, drink and use the litter box without any problems.
A few cuddles here and there 

This episode seems to have awakened a cuddly side of Hiro that even Cheryl has noticed.  Normally he is more aloof.  But lately,  he climbs on laps and sleeps cuddled up with us on the bed.  I could get used to that.
Ok, That's enough....

I should also note that we sold and completed 6 stockings today.  The "After Christmas" orders continue to trickle in and we have had something to do just about every day this year.  Thankfully the orders are small and we can knock them out rapidly.  After that Christmas Rush,   we are thankful for the break.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.  Tomorrow, it is supposed to rain and then freeze.   A good day to hole up and hide out in sleepy little Wellman Iowa.  Stay warm!
