This is what I was going to post about this week:
- A daily Christmas-y photo: wrapping gifts, baking, decorations, etc. This plan was thwarted by the sudden demise of my camera. Santa will hopefully rectify the situation and, in the meantime, I hope to use my daughter's camera today when we hunt for our 'perfect tree'.
- My book group met this week. There was near-record attendance for our Christmas Tea. We discussed Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier and planned our January and February meetings.
- You may have noticed that Anthony Trollope's The Way We Live Now has become a permanent fixture in my currently reading box. Initially this was to be read with an on-line group, but I failed to keep up with their schedule as several other shorter books captured my attention. I've had only limited success with reading multiple books simultaneously (although I continue to try), so I really want to focus on Trollope for the next week or so.
- My oldest daughter completed her first semester of college. I picked her up Thursday evening, so we were home before yesterday's storm hit. Her teammates were not as fortunate. Most had finals scheduled for Friday morning and since all travel ceased yesterday, they are heading home today instead.
- Twin A and I attended An Evening With David Sedaris last week. I figured I'd better just mention it here because, at this rate, it may not get a proper post at all. She enjoyed Me Talk Pretty One Day when she read it this fall for a creative writing class and I thought I'd surprise her with tickets. I listened to Dress Your Family In Corduroy and Denim, so I'd be prepared for the evening, too. We had an excellent time, but the surprise turned out to be that the evening coincided with the beginning of the monster ice storm that unloaded on the northeast.
There will be at least one more proper post as I wrap up the year's reading...and hopefully some shorter holiday posts, too.
