Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah to all you celebraters today. Hope everyone’s day has been good. I had a lovely dinner with my family last night and we opened presents afterwards. It was a bit of chaos with my niece and nephew, but it was really awesome to watch them get excited. They definitely made out like bandits this year. My nephew, who is two by the way, was so excited that he started opening other people’s presents, lol. Classic.
Today has been really quiet at my house since we normally celebrate on the 24th. I went to bed early last night to read The Tale of Despereaux, which I got for Christmas from my sister. It’s a really cute tale and I can totally see why it won the Newberry Medal. I realize I should probably not be reading a children’s book, but I can’t seem to grow up. I do have other adult novels I’m reading. Memoirs of a Geisha is one, which I really do love. I couldn’t put it down up until Christmas swept me up. I’m almost done that, though, so I can give it back to Gord when he returns I’m also reading Johnathan Strange and Mr. Norrell which is just huge and really hard to hold so that was sort of put on hold, heh.
I’m off for two more days from work so I have plenty of more time to read. I’m quite excited about that. On that note, I think I’m going to go off and do just that: read. Goodnight everyone. Merry Christmas and all that jazz!
