We took down the scene yesterday (our Christmas villages; see my Dec. 27 post.) We plan to take down the Christmas tree this afternoon. Other than that, not much has happened here. I started a new index this week. And I’m finally spinning again, plying up some singles I spun last summer and fall.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I read The Forever Girl by Jill Shalvis (ARC) and Amendment of Life by Catherine Aird (Christmas gift.) And I finished rereading Pilgrim’s Inn, a lovely novel by one of my favorite authors, Elizabeth Goudge. (I reviewed it in 2015.) And I finally read (most of) Knitting Without Tears, by Elizabeth Zimmerman. (I read most of it, but skimmed a few of the specific pattern sections, reading her suggestions and observations but not all the pattern directions in detail.)
Now I’m reading The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes by Leonard Goldberg: a buddy read with Tarissa of In the Bookcase, for a COYER readathon where you read something from a friend’s TBR list. (Click title for Goodreads page or my review.)
Watching: We finally watched Bridge of Spies, which was very good. And we are slowly continuing with Discovery, season 3, and Aerial America.
Playing: Carcassonne, Merge Magic, DragonVale, and Pokemon Go. And I subscribed to the NYT games, so I can play the daily crossword and their Spelling Bee game.
