This weekend I am getting my Bah-Humbug self into the holiday spirit even if I need alcohol to do it. The tree is up in its place of honor (second floor landing) and lights strung; the kids just need to put the ornaments on. I'm taking the boy child out tomorrow so he can shop for the family gifts; girl child will get to do it on Monday. I am baking lots of cookies this weekend for Monday's cookie drive on base (spouses' group makes bags of homemade cookies for every Airman living in the dorms - roughly 12,000 cookies are needed).
So with what little time I have to read this weekend/upcoming week, here is what I plan to read:
1. Burning Bright: Four Chanukah Love Stories by Various Authors
Hanukkah starts on December 12th. We celebrate (kind of) on the first night.
2. Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly
For an upcoming square and for Pop Sugar. I've already seen the movie and loved it. I'm hoping some non-fiction gets me out of my DNF streak of late.
3. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
Impulse borrow from the library
COYER starts next weekend, so I am trying really hard not to read off my list until then. I am seriously striking out on the books for the 16 Tasks for the Festive season challenge - I just DNF'd another book tonight.
