Last week was busy but fun, as I am sure yours was as well! Thanksgiving was hosted by my brother this year, and it was their first time hosting such a large gathering. They did a fantastic job – everyone had fun, and it was so relaxed. Perfection. On Friday we headed to the woods for a walk, opting outside, although we did stop in one store because I wanted to this specific wrapping paper I had seen there earlier. I have no idea why, but a gift wrap with serious faced farm animals wearing Santa hats just tickled me enough that I had to go back for it. Lol. The rest of the weekend we kind of bummed around, finish up our decorating, and basically just hung out together. To quote the Okee Dokee Brothers “we were busy doing nothing on our lazy day. ” It was really nice.
I think I was a little overambitious about how much reading I was going to get done on a short week, although I did manage to finish two books, neither non-fiction though. I did make it through nonfiction November and I loved it. So glad I participated but right now I apparently can read about one nonfiction book a month. Maybe I can bump that up a bit in the coming year.
Read Last Week:
Alone in the Wild was FABULOUS!! I love this series so much, and it just keeps getting better. So good! And then feeling festive I moved on to Christmas at Rosie Hopkins’ Sweet Shop, which I also adored. This simple seeming little book actually moved me to tears – twice! I love a good Christmas book and I loved this one.
Reading This Week:
I’m getting a little crazy here again. I will probably more than likely only finish one of these, but I am starting all three. The Call of the Wild and Free will be a slow read for me, that I will read all month long. Anyway, I am getting excited about reading Christmas and holiday themed books! They are so happy usually, and I like that at the holidays.
Posted Last Week
We are still watching Criminal Minds, and we started Shetland on Britbox, which I am addicted to. We are also watching reruns of the Great British Bake Off as Wyatt requests them. Lol. Wyatt is also enjoyed Scout and the Gumboot Kids and Daisy and the Gumboot Kids on Amazon Prime. I have wishing and hoping they would become available to us (they are Canadian) and finally they are!
What is going on with you all?
