Since my last update:
I finished reading Skeletons at the Feast by Chris Bohjalian. It follows a group of refugees across the remnants of Germany near the end of World War II. Although tough to read in spots it was very good.
I had to follow that up with a total change of pace so I turned to graphic novels. I read the 8th volume in the Fables series called Wolves. This one focused mostly on Snow White and Bigby Wolf and a bit of fun involving Cinderella too.
Next up I started The Drops of God, Volume 3. This series from Japan follows an ongoing competition about finding and tasting wines. It’s OK but I think this might be the last in the series for me. It’s becoming repetitive and three volumes in and they’re still on the first of 12 wines is moving the story along too slowly.
Today I plan to start the third book in Jussi Adler-Olsen’s Department Q series. The US title is A Conspiracy of Faith but my print copy is the UK Edition with the title Redemption. I’m looking forward to getting back to this series. I want to get this one read because the fourth book is due out at the end of this month.
On audio I’m still listening to Children of the Storm by Elizabeth Peters. As always it’s just a lot of fun. The mystery is intersesting but I’m really enjoying that for the first time in many books most of the extended family is together in Egypt. I’ve never read any of the print editions of this series but I highly recommend the audios.
Other than books and reading:
|Too cold for me|
Somehow we ended up with absolutely nothing on our calendar for this weekend. Once I realized that I protected it as best as I could. Yesterday after working out in the morning we just stayed inside where it was warm and I watched football and read all day. It was wonderful. This afternoon we need to watch Iron Man 3 because it’s due back to the library tomorrow.
Browsing my phone photos from this week:
We got all the Christmas decorating done inside and out last weekend.
We’ve only had one cat-induced décor destruction incident (so far).

My latest knitting project is cotton washcloths. I like the way this pattern and texture looks.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
