Three hours for four mall stores. A stop at Michael’s. A run to Target. Amazon time. Four hour baking marathon. Knitting. Brown packages on our doorstep. Another Target trip. More Amazon time.
This was my Friday, Sunday, and today. Are you walkin’ that holiday crunch right beside me? How’re you holdin’ up?
Here, I’m feelin’ a bit of burnout which is why I ran 3 mi this morning. I may be in and out the rest of this December. I have to buy more yarn because I don’t have enough for that last cowl and then there’s presents to wrap, the house to clean, and taking out the 13 lb turkey so it can start thawing.
Oh, did I already mention more baking? Sunday’s half day was just the tween’s blueberry muffins for her friends and a batch of cookies for her teacher. I have 13 mini loaves to crank out for the two sites of afterschool childcare staff. In addition, I plan to bake for seven neighbors two to three recipes.
So now you know why it may be quiet around here. Kamsa hamnida for your lovely pop ins over the past couple of posts. I love reading what book has captured your attention right now and what recipes are tickling your taste buds. Mahalo for your sweet thoughts on my Moi Moi’s beanie. I emailed her the link and told her to read through the comments. I think she took that pic with her iPhone.
Before I sign off, I wanted to link up with Shelia of Book Journey. It’s that time of the year again where we readers rub our hands in glee while trying to decide upon what will be our first books of the new year!
The past two times I participated in this easy and quick meme, I totally knew what I wanted to read! In 2014, I chose a young adult book – Also Known As by Robin Benway – and for this year, I had Deborah Harkness’s The Book of Life (All Souls Trilogy #3), a supernatural romance which was more like an adult, academic Twilight.
I’m kind of up in the air for 2016. I don’t want to read a young adult nor a memoir for sure. I am leaning towards reading an author I have never tried before, such as Adriana Trigiani, Anthony Doerr, or Charles Todd. But I’m still (-_-)ゞ゛. So we’ll see. I still have time to ponder on this but I need to decide because I plan to send a pic of me holding my book for the event’s collage.
I hope you can join in on this fun and short meme. If you decide to, click on Shelia’s link so you can sign up and send a photo of you and your book.
Until we meet again…
