While the holiday season is often a whirlwind of plans, preparations, etc., today has really been a breath of fresh air. The gifts are bought and wrapped, we’re having dinner at the neighbors’ house tonight, so no cooking, and the agenda has been simply to take the dogs for a walk, exercise, and read a book.
For about a month, I’ve been part of the way through reading “Collapse” by Jared Diamond. I’ve read a couple hundred pages today, and may finish this afternoon. Reading is one thing that I don’t get to do enough, it seems. My dad has given me a subscription to the Economist magazine for Christmas (the first issue just arrived), and am looking forward to reading that, even if I skim more than throughly reading as I’d like.
Happy holidays to all!
