  1. I gotta get started on my xmas cards I'm doing this year. Ugh. I just NOW put up the xmas stuff this evening. And I still have the outside decorations to do.

  2. The fireworks and Christmas show sounds fun. What a nice haul of books. Belly Up has the most curious cover.

  4. I have thought about cards - they may stay only a thought. :-/
    The musical program sounds lovely and the fireworks are beautiful.
    I enjoyed the Scythe dystopia a bit more than I liked The Handmaiden. I hope you like The Testaments.
    Happy Reading!
