Here we have a “Free Week” …the week before Christmas!
What is ‘free’ about that?
To top it off, I have the first cold that I have had in some time…which is really saying something for me. I was over-due, but, of course, could it have picked a worse week? It ended up feeling like the flu, for which I tested negatively. It does include a sinus infection, though.I’m on meds, I slept most of Thursday and I’m on my way to wellness and Christmas!
I have really scaled-back on my buying and my cooking, not that there aren’t 8 kinds of cookies alteady made, a turkey thawing, with pies and sides ready to get in the picture, but for me, it’s small.
I managed to finish the fifth book in a series I am reading to catch up with my grandson, a darling series that I must review here sometime.
I have the last book of a more adult series that I have been reading for at least five years, one that I stuck with even when I was not happy with the turn that the story and characters took. I know the writer and she made a ‘return’, but still. I want to see it culminate, but this is the second time I checked it out and I have already renewed it. ( I can’t bring myself to purchase it. She doesn’t need my money or support anyway.) Bad timing to try to read right now and I guess I really am not ‘into’ it as I should be.
I misplaced my tablet, (which is my e-reader), for almost two months. It’s back, but it really threw off my catching up with many of my fellow bloggers’ works. I will get to you, my dear People! And I have been given or won a number of books, in hand and virtual. If I live to be 100, I will never read all I have. Yet…I keep taking, and buying, more.
And despite what I said some posts back, I have found that the longer, dark evenings have actually NOT been conducive to me getting into my writing more. We just had the Winter Solstice this week, which means that slowly the daylight will be lasting longer. I think I need it.
So, I wish all of you a Merry Christmas….and Happy Hanukkah and Happy any other Holidays you may celebrate. I had a friend from India call to wish me a “Happy Boxing Day” some years ago. I thanked him but said we really didn’t celebrate it here in the USA, but I know it is big elsewhere, so Happy Boxing Day, as well!
We had readers from 76 countries Word Press told us last year, so there must be more celebrations going on. Enjoy!
