Good morning all. We're expecting a gorgeous day here in Florida, mid seventies with plenty of sun. D and I are going over to her family's house so there will be plenty of food, people, and wine. Later, we're gonna head out to catch an evening movie (My mom doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving. She's a diehard vegetarian/animal activist. It's a touchy subject, so we gave her chocolate cake. Ha!)
Most of you who follow of me on twitter know that I've labeled 2012 thus far The Worst Year Evhar so I'm thankful that it's almost over with (even though logically I know that by the calendar moving into the 2013 it won't necessarily cause the Universe to miraculously give me a break, but it's comforting to think of a 'start over').
There's plenty of other things that I'm thankful for of course: my health, my family, my love, my cats, my books, my friends, you guys. It just doesn't seem so original though, ya know?
I hope for a fairly quiet Thanksgiving weekend. Sure, there will be bike rides and grading of papers (ugh, why did I postpone that endeavor?!) but I also plan to curl up on the couch with a stack of YA books and Netflix Bones (1).
Therefore, without further introduction...I'll be participating in
I'll be updating on Twitter with #thankfulreading . (Thanks Jenn for hosting!) Currently I'm reading Pure and it is freaky as all get out. Seriously, I have a feeling I'm going to end up having nightmares about pieces of my bookshelves merging with my body. (Read the book; you'll understand).
Aiiight. We have a bit of a drive. I hope everyone enjoys their day, eats plenty, sleeps lots, and reads more!
(1) I'm almost done with Bones via Netflix and am looking for a new tele series to start. Suggestions? What's been your favorite discovery on Netflix?
