It smells like Christmas
Not the cooking and baking, but the smell of the lasure or lacquer that I am using to finish our dining table at long last. The varnishy smell took me right back to Christmases past, which included a lot of things like refinishing furniture, painting the verandah and steps red, and cleaning everything to within an inch of its life. I think my Mum would be proud of me as I have spent most of the last week scrubbing and mopping. The baking will begin in a few days, but first my next major project: cutting and sewing the cover for the couch. Stay tuned.
