I made a fantastic congee for lunch.
The Christmas Eve pageant went off quite well. Jenny sang the prelude to the service. I had to travel far in Georgetown to find a parking place because the shoppers hadn't gone home quite yet. An hour later, and parking would have been simple.
During the day, I worked on refining the pigment for my paint. I concluded that even after double sifting, it had too many large particles, to I rediluted the pile, shaking it in an old instant coffee jar. After letting the big particles settle (a minute or two), I poured off the cloudy water into a bucket. I then added more water, shook, and poured off again, for a total of seven or eight times. I dumped the heavy stuff, which was about half my original content. What remained was extremely fine silt particles, which is exactly what I wanted.
I don't know if Santa cleaned up his workshop, but I cleaned up mine. I also mounted a few bars and some screws to hang up some tools, which I should have done ages ago. My clamps now have a home.
I cleaned up the house some as Jenny wrapped presents, but I didn't work too hard. Still, the floors got swept and the table de-cluttered. There should now be room for Christmas. The bathrooms, they still need to get done.
