Here I am, not gone from blogging for ever but certainly for a while. I’ve got a better explanation than usual: since September I’m a mom and it leaves little time for writing (or even – gasp – reading) and so until I arrange things better I’m doing the bare minimum. At any rate, we baked ginger cookies (see above) and made the Christmas card (likewise) so maybe things are getting back on track. At any rate, have a wonderful Christmas time and I’ll be posting whenever I can.
Books: Shakespeare Project continues with Henry VI, part 1 now (I’m so done with Lancasters and Yorks, they were both awful), but I’m also reading a rather not-so-good fantasy series and an exciting book about a strange cult in 18th century Japan.
Music: Kelly Clarkson’s Christmas album because I have no taste or shame.
I thought it would be fun to write a post about all the Christmas preparations that mean one is utterly exhausted by Christmas Eve itself but I don’t have time for that, having to actually go through all those. So instead have fun during Christmas, may it be a peaceful, happy time with family and friends.
This month has not been so great for writing with a lot of work and some Christmas preparations but it’s somewhat possible that the new year will be better. Or not. At any rate have yourselves wonderful Christmas full of rejoicing and reindeer games and here’s our card for this year for those of you who won’t find it in their inboxes (only because I don’t know your addresses, of course).
