~The Art of Mending, Elizabeth Berg
The end of the semester is nigh! I couldn’t be happier. Â One last final exam tomorrow night and I am free. Â I am 100% for sure taking next semester off. Â I must. Â Else I will snap. Â Whatever will I do with all that time??
I’ll tell you. Â Finish cleaning out the old house to get it on the market and SOLD. Â Catch up the list of 30 or so books I’ve been wanting to read. Â Mark a few items off the to knit list. Â Get some more community service done. Â And so on.
Anyway. Â I’ve been busy busy busy in the meantime. Â I got another good chunk of my honors thesis tucked away this weekend at my grandmother’s house. Â I spent a lovely couple of hours with the above ladies and discovered a new little lady is on the way in a few months! Â I can’t wait to meet her.
We shot the Infamous Townsend Christmas Card today! Â Boy are you in for some awesome. Â This might just be our best one yet.
I’ve started reading In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin since I don’t have any more reading to do for school. Â It’s ok. Â Not my favorite book ever, but worth a read. Â Particularly since it shows very clearly how reluctant Americans and the rest of the world were to believe that there was anything “bad” happening in Germany. Â The war hasn’t started yet. Â Much of the detail was taken from the journals and letters of the American Ambassador at the time, and his daughter. Â But I’ve only just this minute learned that there is a NEW Jodi Picoult – out in February!!! Â I love her. Â I really really do.
Miss W has now played Kirsty MacColl 7 times in a row on the stereo. Â It’s time for an intervention.
