You wake up, and somewhere along the way, you feel like this:
Like hiding. Like a blurry photo.
And there may be a reason or two for that, but you don't think they're very good reasons, which only serves to make you feel worse.
And so I didn't get around to finishing my planned post for today. It will wait until next week. The books aren't due back to the library just yet, although I must pick up some holds today.
We have certainly have plenty checked out!
The bag is mostly Christmas books. I'm sort of excited for Christmas right now, but I can't really act on it yet. The adult contemporary station is already playing Christmas music. We looked at Olivia and Muppet ornaments and wooden matryoshka at Target today. I let myself have a $2 owl ornament, but that was all. I hope to make it to World Market and some of the antique stores in town this weekend.
I bought tickets for Ballet Wichita's production of The Nutcracker. We have several friends and teachers in it this year. We're planning what other holiday festivities to attend. December 8 is the Lucia Festival in Lindsborg (Little Sweden USA). I used to work every Saturday, doing storytime at the bookstore. It was difficult to ask off during December, too, so this will be the first year we get to go!
For now, the Christmas books remain in the library bag. A book was read to the girls last night. Daddies are pretty awesome, you know.
He was reading this. Apparently it led to a lot of questions. Even Jenny Cat has a confused look on her face. I'll have to read it myself.
I'm reading the second book in William Joyce's Guardians of Childhood chapter book series. I think the picture books are gorgeous, and while it took me a while to get into it, I enjoyed the first chapter book. I thought I'd plow through the books, then maybe take the girls to see the movie when it comes out.
I always plan to see more movies than I ever make it out to see, though.
I wish everyone (myself included) a merry weekend. May we delight in our books, our families, warm beverages of choice, fall weather, and perhaps even ourselves.
