I have a string of LED xmas lights around the lip of the step from the halls into the den. It's a single step but a real shock if you miss it - or stub a toe on the way out of the room.

Every time I have the electrician in I have a laundry list of things that need attention, and I always feel like I've pampered myself when I go ahead and have the work done. This summer the electricians where here to put a light fixture back into a restored room (ceiling collapse) and put the smoke alarm back in order; after that, we worked on the outdoor plug in back and my non-functioning bathroom plugs (in the old days any rooms with wet areas were wired through one ground fault breaker in the circuit breaker box - and that breaker was failing.) I have GFI plugs in those rooms now, so it seemed redundant, but that's the way it is.

Company here for dinner last night, one disabled friend (very short, brittle bones) and another with allergies, so the dogs spent most of the evening in the yard. One friend went out and threw the bumpers and they love it when he comes to visit. At the end of the evening I let them in and of course they approached the two people who were the reasons I put them outside to begin with. The lab was very gentle in greeting my disabled friend, and the blue heeler didn't jump on the allergic one, so I guess they were on their best behavior.
