Unpacking: The tip of the iceberg

For the past few days, I've been digging through the boxes in my storage room to locate items I can use for serving food when I have guests for New Year. I uncovered enough of my Japanese decorative pieces to fill the shelves in the display case I keep in the living room. I've been collecting these things for ten years, so it's nice to be able to set them out the way I always planned.

I've managed to empty a couple of boxes in the process, but there are so many. I have a lot of stuff.

Now, if I can just find my hot water machine...

In other news, I've been reading a novel (in English) in which the characters all learn how to play sheepshead. Here's a quote: "Some players still use cheat sheets. Sheepshead is pretty much only known by elderly farmers." Tee hee! It makes me want to play again. It's hard to think about celebrating Christmas without playing sheepshead.

We're having a holiday potluck at work tomorrow. I'm going to bring a loaf of chayote bread. The plant is dying down for the season, so I'm trying to save as much as I can. I've cleared out some room in the freezer and stuck four pints of shredded chayote in there. If I can store at least two more pints, that will be enough to have at least one loaf of chayote bread per month for a year.
