A winter cold came from out of left field yesterday and took me in its clutches. Having to go into purdah to avoid spreading contagion around the family has put a crimp in my social activities over the holiday. It hasn't stopped me from picking up a brush.
The color parties for the Liebgarde Grenadiers and IR 2 von Wöhl are now complete, and both units are ready for basing. The grenadier company for IR 3 Bräbenachel is now done, and a start made on the command element of the Bishop's Horse. Depending on how I feel, I may have them finished by New Year's Day.
