The Joy of Christmas


Happy Day After Christmas! Time to wash all those dishes. By hand — it’s the good stuff. There have been great improvements in the operation of dishwashers over the years, and I expect that even the finest china and the thinnest gold leaf are safe in them now, but I’m in no mood to experiment with pieces that can’t be replaced.

A spare hour! Time to read The Sportswriter. Kathleen is not napping — quite the reverse — but I shall talk with her when the hour is up, and we shall plot the evening.

It’s hard to believe that it’s just an ordinary Wednesday. There’s a very thick atmosphere of Sunday.
