I have been a real loser in the reading arena lately. I tried “Wicked” — couldn’t get into it, I tried a couple before that and couldn’t get into them either. But, I just finished 19 Minutes by Jody Picolt. It was truly disturbing, but I love how she portrays a courtroom and how she can make you see different viewpoints so clearly. If you haven’t read something by her, give it a try (you can click on my good reads banner to see more books by her). Now I’m reading Naked by (I think) David Sedaris. So far it is also creeping me out.
This morning I was bemoaning how all my money went to the car and we weren’t saving enough, when low and behold the phone rings and it’s O’Connor seeing if I wanted to work. I did, and it all worked-out perfectly. I was still able to go shopping with a friend and do family stuff this evening. You can’t say that this happening time and time again for me is just a coincidence. I am truly blessed.
We went to the Crech exhibit tonight. I haven’t been for a few years. The kids and us loved it. They have nativity sets from all around the world. Not only can you get into Christmas, but you can appreciate art from all over the world. The kids got a kick out of how different they all were. Loved it, definately gettin’ me in the Christmas mood. I highly recommend it.
