Relaxing and Some Decorating

I’d love to say that I had another fun, eventful weekend like last weekend.  I didn’t.  Not that it was all bad.

I started decorating for Christmas over the weekend.  Yes, I always start this early since I’m never home for Thanksgiving.  Plus it takes me a while and I like to be able to enjoy it.  I didn’t get quite as far as I intended, mainly because I was lazy on Saturday.  Still, trees are up and lights inside and outside are up.  I’d hoped to at least get this year’s ornaments on the tree, but that will have to wait until I get back.  Then Sunday I went out to lunch with some friends and then had dinner with other friends after ultimate Frisbee.  Both were fun meals that I really enjoyed.

Part of me being lazy means my reading fell behind this weekend, and I’ve got two reviews to post this next week.  I’ll have to do some more reading than I’d originally planned on while I’m up for Thanksgiving.

Because yes, I’m leaving Wednesday afternoon for Thanksgiving!  And even better, I’m getting paid holiday time for it this year.  Unfortunately, I am coming back on Sunday this year, when traffic will be horrid and it is supposed to rain.  I’m not looking forward to that trip back at all.  Hopefully, it won’t be as bad as I’m picturing.

Meantime, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Lazy Update

So I'm just going to be lazy and point you to my post at Carstairs Considers to update you on my weekend this last weekend.  It's cause I have more there than I'd put here, and I don't want to repeat it.

After Bouchercon was over on Sunday, I went down to the beach for a bit.  It was in the upper 70's and a very pleasant day.  I just couldn't rush back, especially since we were having high winds up here that were making it cold.  Didn't want to play ultimate in that weather and didn't want to leave gorgeous beach weather in the middle of November.  We need rain, and I hope we get plenty of it this winter.  But that doesn't mean I'm not going to enjoy the warm weather while we are getting it.

Quiet Couple of Weeks

You’ll notice I’ve been very quiet the last couple of weeks.  I’ll now fill you in on exactly what I’ve been doing that has kept me so busy I could blog.

Exciting, isn’t it?

It’s been a pretty quiet couple of weeks, which after how busy I was for the previous six was a nice change of pace.  Work is still going well, although I have to figure out what to do about shoes that won’t kill my feet and legs by lunch time, much less the end of the day.  My weekends have included longs stretches of time to veg and get little to nothing done.  Boy did I need that.

Of course, I have been writing reviews and watching TV and doing plenty of reading, so it’s not like I’ve done nothing at all.  Well, okay, maybe I have.

This last Saturday, I was able to catch up with Spencer and find out how he’s doing, which was a lot of fun.

In other news, I’ve slipped from second to fourth in my fantasy football league, but I expect to be back up to third after the game tonight is over.  Possibly second, but most likely third.  First is just too far out of reach.

But really, I think that’s about it as far as an update goes.
