We’ve been hunkered down pretty good lately, which was my plan for December. A quiet month of cozy times. Lots of baking and music and comfort foods; cuddles with cats and watching movies under my favorite quilt. Soon we will be emerging from this little cocoon to celebrate the holidays but for now, we are enjoying the quiet.

Billy and I got this Santa 21 years ago when we were married, as a gift from a family friend. Wyatt for some reason has really taken a liking to it, and drags it all over the house with him. It cracks me up – until he leaves it somewhere and it scares me in the middle of the night.

Read Last Week:

My progress on this book has been slow, although not due to lack of interest. My darn Kindle charger is being wonky and charging super slowly! It took literally 24 hours for it to charge to 78%. I bought a new charger and cord, and I just put it on to charge again just now, so hopefully this one does the trick. I am halfway through and I am really loving this story.

Reading the rest of the month:

I will probably read from these three the rest of the month, depending on which I am in the mood for- romance, middle grade, or nonfiction. And of course, after I finish Mistletoe and Mr. Right.

Homeschooling: Ice Age

What Wyatt’s Reading – December Edition

Watching:

Still Brokenwood Mysteries! It was pretty good the first three seasons, but season four has been really fantastic. We don’t know if the show hit its stride or what, but lately the shows have been crazy good. We are also still watching Wheel of Time. As for movies, our list has included Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and Ice Age Christmas. I am hoping so hard for snow! I need snow to feel complete at Christmas time. I don’t need a lot, but enough so it feels like winter. I have a hard time completely enjoying my favorite Christmas movies without it – I am sure if I grew up somewhere warm, or lived somewhere warm I would be used to it, but for me Christmas needs some snow, darn it.

How about you all? Stay safe and well everyone~

  1. I can see that snow would be an important part of the Christmas experience for you. We had one crazy memorable Christmas where we woke up to snow everywhere! It was amazing to see snow everywhere, especially in the palm trees and on the beach.

    All of your reading choices look like books I’d enjoy. I’m planning my reading now for 2022, and I’m trying to work up a list of classics for a personal chapter-a-day challenge. I’m trying to use that technique of the clutter queen, trying to see what sparks joy.

  2. I have never lived in a snowy place, but I’m only an hour away from snow in our nearby mountains, so I have always enjoyed playing in it after a drive up there. Sledding and tobogganing. I’m not a skier, though; it’s too scary for me!

    Enjoy your Christmas books and movies, and thanks for sharing. Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. I’m sure had I not lived in Michigan I would have other traditions for the season. I think California would be a pretty perfect state to live in – you guys have it all out there! Skiing is way too scary for me too. I could never ever make myself get on a ski lift.

    1. I feel sort of pulled in so many directions right now! Between what I need to do, including teaching Wyatt lol, and the things I want to do, I am spread super thin this past week – and upcoming week as well. I did as much as I could early but now it’s game time. 😂

  3. A quiet, cozy month sounds wonderful! If I could give you some of my snow, I would 🙂. We got over a foot of snow Friday night in Wisconsin. I spent a few Christmases in California with my grandparents and it never felt like Christmas because there was no snow.

    We loved the Ice Age movies, but I don’t think I have seen the Christmas one – I’ll have to look for it.

    Have a good week!

  4. I thought about reading that Courtney Walsh book but i had read another one of hers at one point and really didn’t like it. It was probably just that book. It wasn’t the worst. It wasn’t Virgin River. Lol.

    That’s funny about the Santa!

    I hope we all get snow but not like last year when we got rain for Christmas and then 22 inches of snow after that!

  5. The Santa and Wyatt are both cute!

    I love the covers of all those books, they remind me of growing up in Ohio ♥

    I’m going to see if I can get the Brokenwood Mysteries.

    I hope you have a great week!

  6. A quiet, cozy December sounds ideal! Christmas is FL seems to have a very different vibe, which I am trying to embrace, but there’s nothing like a white Christmas. Such a cute photo if Wyatt and the Santa. Enjoy your holiday reading!

  7. Love White Christmas! My favorite classic Christmas movie is It Happened on 5th Avenue. It’s very underrated but funny and feel good. I had to laugh at Wyatt dragging the Santa around and scaring you periodically. I’ve had that happen with a giant stuffed animal Will was dragging around for awhile! Hope you’re having a great week!
