This picture may not look that tidy, but it’s an enormous improvement. I filed months’ worth of papers which had been stacked on the desk, the chair, and the floor. I’m left with a stack of books I need to review and some papers I’m actively working on.

This side of the room is tidied and dusted.

I also got a start on cleaning out the closet. I need to have the light fixture put in and to fix or replace the wallpaper. I hope it won’t take me till next year’s Office Week to get it done.

In any case, I’ll enjoy working in here now.

I got no goodies or meals into the freezer, no gifts wrapped, and no extra groceries bought. I did make progress on handmade gifts (or at least on one handmade gift) and I bought some presents. Some progress, then.
