I read two pages of Middlemarch between last night and now! I confess, we watched House last night (a middling episode, until I realized it was more about Thirteen than House), and I watched The Tudors. So tonight I promised myself I'd do better, but then I had to catch up with friends in England on Facebook.......and the excitement over the trip is building so the kids are beginning to act out already, and we're still 2 1/2 weeks away!
So, I am going to be good and go read now. So I can say I read today!
In other news, we finally, finally have snow - and not a lot, not a snow storm, just the second day straight of snow, and more tomorrow, but it's all falling very slowly. It is warm out too, hovering around the freezing mark, so very comfortable to be outside. If my new boots hadn't just given me a blister, I would be out for a walk now, because I love warm winter evening with the snow glistening under the lights and the crunch of my footsteps the only sound. There is space to think, and slow down and listen. As we get closer to the trip, to Christmas, another birthday, friends and family and all the holiday season, I must remember, I have to remember, to take time for me, and time to enjoy every thing, and not get caught up in rushing. To that end, I have joined
the Advent Calendar Blog Tour for book bloggers! I have picked Dec 1, and I will be sharing something that is becoming a tradition in our family. I love the idea of going from day to day and reading what that day's bloggers for Christmas have to share with everyone. What a lovely way of bringing a little of you into my Christmas! See Marg at Reading Adventures here,
or Kaliana at The Written World here
to join up. It's not too late! I joined yesterday!
I hope you have time to read on this snowy evening.
