Hello Readers! I am still recovering from Thanksgiving and don't think I can eat anymore turkey, pie or nuts for a while (should be good by Christmas). We had a very nice Thanksgiving and the food came out perfect. I've been off since Wednesday and have not read a thing in all that time. I've been watching an abundance of Law and Order and What Not to Wear episodes instead. I feel like I've lost my blogging and book reviewing mojo, while I think about what the next (3.5) weeks will be like. It's always an excess of food in my circles. We have several holiday functions --work related, an annual fancy Sunday brunch with Santa to celebrate my birthday in December and then there is Christmas Eve and Day and New Year's eve and day as well. Is your next few weeks "food fests" as well. How do you cope, or do you just indulge and address the weight gain on January 2nd?
Books and Reading
I have completed a few books that I enjoyed, but have not reviewed them yet. One was Florence Gordon, by Brian Morton and the other is the new book by Haruki Murakami, The Strange Library....very bizarre and more like the old Murakami (this one less than 100 pages). I hope to begin Stephen King's, Revival next.
