Why yes, I am easily distracted by shiny objects and a brand spanking New Year.
Another Christmas has come and gone. I hosted Christmas, which I love to do, and we had a great time. We played games, ate a lovely dinner, took a walk, opened gifts, and watched Love Actually. Even though we’re a small family, when we get together, it’s anything but quiet and relaxing.
As much as I love Christmas, I’m ready for a little R&R and I’m ready to get back into my routine. But first we have New Year’s Eve.
I’ve never been a big fan of New Year’s Eve so I’m happy to keep it low key this year. We’re going to a neighborhood restaurant for dinner and then ringing in the New Year at home. What are your plans for New Year’s Eve? Whatever your plans are, I wish you a safe and wonderful New Year!
Oooh look at these shiny objects . . .
- These resolutions actually seem doable, usable, and not lame.
- Some favorite celebrity resolutions.
- Now this is something I might actually do.
- The 2016 lists are out. Here’s a good one.
- Because Carrie Fisher made me laugh.
I’ve been reading . . . Christmas Days: 12 Stories and 12 Feasts for 12 Days by Jeanette Winterson. This will be my last Christmas book and then it’s on to non-holiday books.
I finished The Sellout, which was funny as hell, kind of disturbing, and brilliantly written. I also finished The Christmas Town, which was a warm and fuzzy kind of book. It was the “just right” Christmas book to read—just enough feel good without it being so bad.
I’ve been watching . . . When Harry Met Sally because of Carrie Fisher. Dang, she is funny. And I forgot how good that movie was.
I’ve been listening to . . . George Michael. I mean, come on, who hasn’t? And like When Harry Met Sally, I kind of forgot how good some of his songs are.
Have a wonderful weekend! Cheers to a happy New Year!
