The dining room table and chairs survived, as did some candlesticks and candles. The settee and an upholstered chair did not survive, but we tried to clean them vigorously. They have found themselves back in the barn for another day. The meals were planned and the house decorated for Christmas and the family came. And it was good.

Christmas Eve saw 13 people at Hardy House for dinner and celebration and the Hardy House was comfortable and worked as we had hoped. Our seating was not ideal but the open floor plan that we now have and the stairs both offered opportunities for mingling and additional seating and it worked as we had hoped. It was a success. People were eager to see our progress and we didn't disappoint.

But alas, I also forgot to tell you of the mattress saga. Next post...
