Snow, reading, and TV specials
It looks like Christmas here with snow falling on the trees and the red barn across the road. Snow is a rare sight this year, it has been a rather muddy Season. Christopher reminded me that last year we had heavy snow and ice the week of finals.
I'd planned to run a couple errands today but instead I'm staying home where it is warm and cozy. There is nothing which needed to be done today that can't wait until Monday. After the busy-ness of last week, a day of reading and watching a little TV sounds lovely.
There are some very good Christmas specials on various channels, including The Pioneer Woman's Christmas special on The Food Network (I just love Ree!) and the NRB Channel is showing the Christmas episodes of The Joy of Music. I'm not a big fan of organ music, however, I have enjoyed that show through the years. My favorites being the two Christmas episodes and the one they taped at L'Abri in Switzerland a few years ago.
But there are also books still to read! Last night I perused through one of my favorite "books about books", Honey for a Woman's Heart by Gladys Hunt. Since it first came out, this book has introduce me to some authors who would have otherwise been off my radar... like Barbara Pym ( a few have asked me if I have read her books, yes... very good!).
Anyway, when I read through it again last night, I kept thinking of that saying, "So many books... so little time". Sigh... But before I can read or watch or anything else, there are dishes soaking in the kitchen sink, and a load of laundry waiting for the washer, not to mention humans and a kitty needing to eat. Such necessary gotta do's continue even this time of year.
