Having Myself a Merry Little Christmas
Whether you’ve just passed the shortest day of the year or the longest, whether you celebrate religiously or secularly or not at all, I wish you a joy-filled weekend. And here’s to sneaking in a little bit of bookish delight as well (one of my very favourite holiday traditions is to read by Christmas tree light, usually with a lamp somewhere nearby to help out)! ;)
I found my very own copy of The Long Ships under the tree (I guess my mom noticed my gushing) as well as a desperately-needed new tote bag for library trips. But my big gifts were non-bookish: a wonderful new camera (point-and-shoot but with full manual capabilities and a wide, fast, gorgeous Leica lens) and some boots perfect for woodland hikes with Thistle. Aside from gifts, it’s been a perfect Christmas: lots of love and laughter, with no lost tempers or arguments whatsoever. Back to bookish things tomorrow: I’ve been reading so many books under the Christmas tree, I can’t wait to tell you about them!
Thank you for visiting my blog, for reading and commenting and e-mailing and tweeting and caring. You all enrich my life more than I can say. And for me Christmas is a day celebrating love and connections, so you should know you have my deepest gratitude.
All my love,
