Weekly meme to talk about books and a little about my personal life
Kimberly hosts the Sunday Post each week. I like to take part because it gives me an opportunity to look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also love to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading.
We are in Indiana for Christmas. There’s snow on the ground, I’ve made some Christmas cookies, we’ve gone to a fun Christmas Market and my two other kids show up in a couple of days. I managed to get my Christmas cards made, written and mailed before we left home which made me happy. I love this time of year!
‘Twas Christmas broach’d the mightiest ale;
‘Twas Christmas told the merriest tale;
A Christmas gambol oft could cheer
The poor man’s heart through half the year. –Walter Scott
“Reflect upon your present blessings — of which every man has many — not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”
― Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Writings
“When I discovered libraries, it was like having Christmas every day.”
— Jean Fritz
My three kids are with us and I feel very lucky to have them here to celebrate our first Christmas in our new house.
I made cards this year and had lots of fun making them though I got a late start. I didn’t get my cards sent out until this week, but I did get them sent out with a short note so that made me happy!
I haven’t posted much in December. It has been a very busy month plus I’ve had various computer problems most of the month. My son is here for Christmas and has solved the last of the computer problems…at least for now.
I plan to get back on schedule after Christmas. For now I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Around the House
I didn’t do a lot of reading, but my husband and I did a little house reorganizing as well as Christmas decorating. The tree is up..but no lights or decorations yet, but we have Christmas lights outside! I reorganized my craft room and made a few Christmas cards!
We might get a little snow on Sunday before it changes to sleet/freezing rain and then to all rain. We have a lower chance of snow and freezing rain here in southern Maryland.
No reviews this week. I had a couple just about ready, but could never sit down to finish them so…maybe next week!
I bought lots of books this week–there were just so many great sales…and when they weren’t exactly on sale the price was still good! And I plan to do a marathon read of some of the Sharon Lee and Steve Miller books in January so I’m getting ready!
My husband is out of town on business until the weekend before Christmas so I need to finish the decorating, the Christmas cards and make sure we’re ready for Christmas. Yikes! Lots to do, but I’m going to try to relax. Here’s my mantra–Enjoy each day, have some fun, read some Christmas books, listen to Christmas music, bake some cookies…. Oh well, one day at a time, I guess!
