Listening To: Enjoying the last of the Christmas music, although our local radio channels just play the same 20 Christmas songs over and over. I have to retreat to my iPod. I really wish we had Sirius in the cars. The Indie Christmas channel is just awesome.
Book finished: The Selfish Gene, Batman: Earth One Preview, The Magician King, The Son of Neptune
Reading: None; taking a break for family activities and Christmas. Will resume my reading with the start of 2013.
On the Nightstand: January 2013 reads
From the kitchen: Since I’m at my mom’s house, I’m not cooking. But I did make sure to stop by the store and pick up some interesting wine for us. I’ll let you know if it was any good. And I’m planning on making an appetizer of baked brie, caramel, and pecans for Christmas Eve dinner.
On the Web: Reading all the year end book blogger posts and getting ideas for next year’s reading challenge. I think I’ve finalized my list.
Watching: Whatever my mom and stepdad are watching, which means a lot of sports and reality shows. I may have to retreat into my bedroom and pop on some scifi or Doctor Who just because. Maybe the boys’ will join me for some Doctor Who.
Wondering: If we will have a white Christmas? It’s been awhile since it snowed on Christmas and didn’t just turn into slush or sheets of ice.
From Nature: I’m really not liking the cold. I want to go back to my climate of 50s in December.
Shopping Scores: I finished my Christmas shopping on Thursday, just in time to miss the crazed last minute shoppers and trying to do it with the boys around. I did have to enter Toys R Us and the mall, but it wasn’t that bad. I entered the mall right where I needed to go (I actually remembered where the store is) and got in and out within 15 minutes. Pretty good time.
Project: The boys and I have tie dye shirts and Christmas cards to make. We’re planning on doing them today, but who knows. I wonder how this will go.
