Where did the week go? I feel as though I should have accomplished so much more than I did. I mean, I managed to do a good bit of laundry, and I made progress on two handmade gifts, but otherwise… the tree still isn’t decorated, the scene still isn’t up, and I’m still trying to finish up Christmas shopping and crafting. To be honest, I keep vacillating between wanting to get into the holiday spirit, and trying to ignore the sadness I feel that we won’t be with Robin, my parents, and my sister’s family.
Sunday afternoon, I attended the virtual planning session for COYER book group for 2021, which was fun.
Thinking ahead to 2021
After some deliberation, I decided to go ahead and host The Backlist Reader Challenge again, so expect to see that post this week. I’ll be participating in a few year-round reading challenges, but fewer than last year.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I went on a Jayne Castle rereading binge this week, plowing through five and half books of the Ghost Hunters/Harmony series: After Dark, After Glow, Ghost Hunter, Silver Master, Dark Light, and Obsidian Prey. (I didn’t spend all that much more time reading this week. It’s just that they are very fast reads, and go even more quickly because I am rereading.) I’m also rereading one of my favorite Elizabeth Goudge books, one which really fits the holiday season: Pilgrim’s Inn, also known as The Herb of Grace.\)
Listening to: A lot of podcasts this week: Smart Podcast, Trashy Books; 99% Invisible; and I finished up Harry Potter and the Sacred Text, season 2.
Watching: Not much, for various reasons.
Playing: Carcassonne, Dragonvale, and Merge Magic.
