In the background of the first photo, you can see a portion of an old clock which has been in my kitchen for as long as I can remember. It originally belonged to my father's grandfather. Yes, it's that old, and it still keeps good time. Well, it sometimes runs about ten minutes slow, but if you were over a hundred years old, you might run a bit slow, too. :-) I wind it every Sunday morning, and it rewards me by striking the hour and half hour all week long.
Decorating update: the tree on the porch and the outside tree are decorated so I am making progress.
