This is the view from my dining room window. It’s cold. Really cold for Southern California and a storm is rolling in. Look at those clouds! I am in my PJs, reading Moby Dick for my Moby Dick Monday post. The kids are doing their homework and I have multiple things going on like writing out Christmas cards, laundry, etc. Nothing like multi-tasking! The Hub is at work again (darn economy) so I’m just trying to fit it all in.
This past week I reviewed a beautiful collection of short stories, Forgetting English. You can read the review here. I also reviewed In a Perfect World which was an eye-opening experience. Dark and disturbing yet highly readable. You can read my review here. This week I am reading quite a few books at the same time. I am reading When She Flew for a tour at the end of this month. I am also reading Finn which is my book club pick for January. In addition to those I am also reading Under the Dome and The Things that Keep Us Here so my “end of the world” reading continues. So much for trying to read one book at a time!
Tonight I am not cooking anything special but the Hub plans to grill, even though it looks like it’s going to pour. That’s the beauty of a covered patio. It can be pouring down rain and us So. Californians can still throw a steak onto the grill.
I’d also like to say a big “Thank you!” for posting such nice comments during my Grinchy-bah-humbug week. It’s been a challenging year and it all just hit me out of the blue. I take so much on, to make things easier for others that I rarely take time-out for myself, so the blogger meet-up and your nice comments were just what I needed.
I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday.
