a little like Christmas here!
So this is step one in Operation Christmas Tree--you can see Koto on the coffee table!
Today has been a lazy day (or perhaps better to say I have been very lazy--) as I'm all organized to start grading tomorrow and getting to the end of fall term.
I gave up on two books yesterday--Stacy Schiff's "The Witches" about the Salem witch trials and then also a book called "Among the Ten thousand Things" and they were both totally put downable after the first chapter (yay library books!). Then I remembered one of my reading goals is to read some of the classics that I've never read--Edith Wharton and Henry James, to name two. It is interesting because I've read other novels from the same period that they write about (like Howard's End etc) but I've never read certain authors like Wharton and James--so I checked the Kindle and indeed have several from both. I started "The Buccaneers" last night and I really like it. So that will be a nice sabbatical plan.
Last night we watched the last episode of "Indian Summers" and there's not a nice person on that show. Except maybe the (highly stereotypical) drunk Scotsman.
AND I wrote the Christmas letter and I'll probably post it here at some point!
So a good weekend all around.
