Happy Exchange It Day!
So, how many of you got Christmas presents that absolutely had to be exchanged? Really, almost the only time I ever even consider exchanging a gift is if I need a different size, but boy, the malls were as crowded today as they were at the height of the shopping season. Thankfully, all of the gifts I received were perfect, and we only had to swap a pair of jeans and one shirt for my husband. We had a lovely Christmas day, even though it was just the two of us this year. Of course, it was a shame that there were no guests to see the exquisite perfection of my roast turkey, which turned out to be about the best one I’ve ever cooked, if I do say so myself. But that just means more leftovers for Mark and I. And we BOTH love leftovers!
Hope Santa was good to all of you, and that you are lucky enough to be full, happy, and grateful today. Since we are having a family party on the 13th of January, we have decided to leave our decorations up until then, so I’m going to be in the spirit for a long time yet. Maybe this year, that Christmas Feeling really WILL last all year long.
I’m nearly finished re-reading Janet Evanovich’s Wicked Appetite, so expect a review of that by tomorrow, anyway, at which point I will be reading the sequel, Wicked Business. They are quick reads and a lot of fun, so I’m looking forward to getting them done and reviewed. After that…I think I’ll take a trip to The Edge with the Ilona Andrews book Steel’s Edge. (I was very sorry to read that this is the last book in this series, as I love these stories, and was hoping for more. )
Now tell me about all the new books you found under your tree, then after that, back to making your list of New Year’s Resolutions, Everybody. (You DO make a list, don’t you???) 😉
