When we went to buy our Christmas tree on Saturday morning, it was 20 degrees out.We got a nice 7 foot tree and it and the house will be decorated over the next few days, I guess. It would be a happier time if we hadn’t had pipes burst in the ceiling. We winterize the house, blow out the sprinkler lines, have (what we had been assured was) adequate insulation in the attic. But there was a drain plug hidden away no one ever pointed out and we had never seen,. I guess we’d been lucky the other really cold weather we had, but there’s been nothing like these many consecutive days in the ’20s and ‘teens. Damn & Drat.
Nothing new. A package was delivered which looked suspiciously like a book, but it was whisked away by the Captain of the Palace Guard herself.
MY CURRENT READING:
More of the same. Other than the Barnard and the C&H, I’m barely reading anything, I even have a stack of magazines getting taller.
Damn, the Christmas rush is on already. Shopping, wrapping (I’m terrible at wrapping), holiday activities and football. Plus dealing with household disasters. When is there any time to read? My annual reading total will be okay, I’ll hit my goal of 104 (two per week) but my December totals will probably pretty much suck.
Did you get anything new? What have you been reading?
