A good Sunday to you all. As we near the year’s end I want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday season. May you share it with those you love and may your hearts be filled with joy and peace.
For the next week Mr G and I will be spending time together, baking cookings and wrapping gifts. After the flooding in the basement fiasco I hope we finally get out to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows.
This past week has been busy and crazy and stressful but it is done, the children have made and wrapped their gifts and I received too many baked goodies on our last day before the break. I think I will be taking them to our annual Solstice party Monday night. I also received some gift cards from two of my favorite local independent booksellers and will be treating myself to some books on my to-be-read list,just in time for the TBR Dare!
I am working on my “books of the year’ list, there are some very clear favorites from the last twelve months. As for reading this past week I finished The Hare with Amber Eyes and highly recommend it. I had to return C to the library unfinished, I found I had a hard time getting into it and may give it another go later on. I am almost done reading The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ and I am trying to get through a pile library books by the end of the year. These include Salman Rushdie’s newest Luka and the Fire of Life, The Magician’s Book by Laura Miller and 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus by Charles C. Mann. What are you reading today? What are your plans for the week?
