December rolled in rather quietly even though we are now under a three week safe at home order. It did occur to me though that I’d like to read a few more books and have them reviewed by the end of the year, so today I have lit a fire under my butt to see what can be done there. I mean, I can’t go anywhere anyway, right?
Just lounging around. No agenda besides watching movies and reading. Well, later my youth group meets on Zoom but that’s a ways away.
I’ve got my follow-up appointment to discuss the mysterious ultrasound this Tuesday. Thursday, a dental appointment for my daughter. Is it just me or does it feel weird to do these mundane things now? Plus, two things scheduled and I feel overwhelmed.
Still reading Parable of the Sower. It’s very good but it’s not a book you rush through so it’s taking me weeks to finish. I read a couple of chapters and then I have to put it down to think about it. Good for my brain but it’s keeping me from other books. I don’t think I can read anything else alongside this one.
I’ve been catching up with The Crown. We are halfway through Season 3 now. Thanks to Bryan, I am also watching all sorts of holiday themed TV shows on Hulu (Newhart, The Golden Girls, The Wonder Years, etc.)
For movies, I just recorded a bunch of movies on Turner Classic Movies but I am breaking out all my holidays favorites because we own a DVD player again.
- The Family Stone
- Christmas Vacation
- Jingle All the Way
- Deck the Halls
- Christmas with the Kranks
- It’s a Wonderful Life
They are all stacked up and ready to be viewed!
- Independent bookstores with kind associates who love books just as much as I do. Shop small!
- Hard to keep track of but my son’s new job was not to his liking so he found another one! Grateful that he could since our numbers in California are way up.
- Christmas lights. The neighborhood is waking up to the holiday spirit lurking about because many more homes put their lights up today. Makes it so cheery.
How are you? What are you looking forward to this month?
