Today has been a day of simple pleasures. A few inches of snow remain on the ground outside, making everything look and feel like many of us think December should here in the Northern hemisphere. We slept late since it’s Saturday, and then I made us a big breakfast to celebrate the end of the academic term. We’ve listened to different kinds of popular and classical Christmas music on the stereo all day while Sonja prepared some goodies for a small party we’re having this evening.
Meanwhile, I worked a bit more on preparing the Spencer Smith cavalry for basecoating and painting. Still have about dozen to do, but here’s a photo of those who are ready and on their cardboard bases to prevent them toppling over constantly. My painting area is beginning to look like the cover of Charles Grant Sr.’s The War Game, and that’s not a bad thing here in the Grand Duchy of Stollen!
