Thanks so much for stopping by today.  It has been a nice productive weekend and I've finally cleared a whole bunch of boxes from my kitchen and living room.  Tomorrow I will see what I can do about the bedroom. 

Tonight is the Community Christmas Concert at the Congregational Church.  It is close enough to walk.  I love my new town.  I hope your Sunday is blessed.  I'm going to watch the snow flurries for awhile.
