...and began decorating the tree.
More baking and decorating is on tap today. Yes, there are still reviews to finish and year-end lists to compile, but Lakeside Musing will be quiet this week. My days will be less hectic after Christmas and there should be plenty of time for reading and blogging then.
I finished Pavilion of Women on audio and am in awe of Pearl S. Buck's understanding and portrayal of life, especially for women, in China. Now I want to reread The Good Earth and continue with Sons, the second book in the trilogy.
Freedom by Jonathan Franzen is still my current read. It's taking a long time, but is well worth it. I love Franzen's writing and shared a quote earlier this week.
It has been another snowy week. Schools were delayed (or closed), Christmas concerts and games were cancelled. Over 70 inches of snow has made this the snowiest December in history. Another seven inches earns the title of snowiest month ever and, with 12 days left, this seems highly probable. Good Morning America was even filming weather segments in the area. It's hard to believe the official start of winter is still a few days away!
Best wishes to all for a very Merry Christmas...
