After that I walked into town to bank the check which is the final payment from my cousin's estate. Also I bought some fake tea-lights, i.e. they are battery operated. Sadly I didn't have these when I made the Halloween lantern out of a swede. The rea. tea-light was fine for a minute or two while I took photos, but there was soon a smell of burnt swede and I didn't like to leave it burning as a decoration.
And then, after lunch and after cutting back the grass that was growing over the concrete by the house wall, I felt very tired and have done nothing worth mentioning all afternoon.
Tomorrow I think I will get the tiny Christmas tree out of the garage and put it up, along with the string of crochet Christmas trees and the cards.
