Weekly Update: 'Tis the Season
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... at least at this nearby inn/restaurant where we celebrated our 29th anniversary last Monday. Seeing their gorgeous tree reminded me of all the decorating and shopping I have yet to do. This will be the week!
I finished Christmas at High Rising by Angela Thirkell - delightful stories with characters from her Barsetshire series, but not quite as much Christmas as I was expecting.
They Were Sisters by Dorothy Whipple (for the Classics Club Spin) is my current read, and it is wonderful so far!
I'm still working on Finding Florida by T.D. Allman and can certainly understand why this book is controversial. What a wild and colorful history that state has had!
Today's Daily Deal (12/7) at audible.com is Everything I Never Told You written by Celeste Ng and narrated by Cassandra Campbell. It's just $3.95 and I couldn't resist. I'll probably need a break from the 21 hour Florida history soon.

Are you looking for a simple, delicious soup? Try this Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup from Gimme Some Oven... it doesn't get much easier and everyone here loved it. I'll definitely make it again over the holidays when all the girls are home.
College basketball. Now if my Orangemen could just come up with a win...
The Red Tent will be on Lifetime tonight and tomorrow, and my DVR is ready. I loved Anita Diamant's book... have you read it?
We'll bring in the Christmas tree and put up the lights, but will wait on the ornaments until everyone is home. There's also a family gathering to celebrate my father's 79th birthday later this afternoon. But right now, I'm going to pour another cup of coffee, catch up on some blogs, and read the newspaper.
What are you up to today?
