I love Christmas. I really do, but I love it more when everything is done. We finally got the outside lights up today and finally finished Christmas shopping. Hurray!!! Does that mean for the next day and a half I can read? No it does not.
Tomorrow is cookie baking day and any other baking I need to do for the holidays. And I have to clean the kitchen, finish laundry and go food shopping. Everything else is done. Well, except I never got any Christmas cards out again this year. I feel 2014's my year, though. I feel confident those cards will get sent.
The package deliveries are winding down as Christmas is only three days away now.
I am going to have an after Christmas project and that will be reorganizing my books. Not the ones on the book shelves. All the stacks on the bedroom floor and my nightstand. They are getting so high on my nightstand I almost can't see the floor lamp.
Does it stop me from looking at books? No, but it will. My current project is that I downloaded samples of about 10 books that are available as bargain books. The books are in my Amazon cart, but I am trying to read samples to make sure I like the writing style and the story. If it doesn't grab me in the first few pages, I'm going to have to throw it back in the water.
Christmas is coming and I did put some books on my wish list, so we'll visit those books next week, but for now, here's my haul for the week.
