So here I am once again having not posted in almost a month. This business of being easy with the shoulder is for the birds. I would love to say I have spent this time cross stitching and crocheting but alas, I have not. I've spent a lot of time in the recliner but it was mostly to rest my back and baby the shoulder. I've read quite a bit but I have no photos of the books.

I finished "Dark Places" by Gillian Flynn. I really like this one. The first one I read, "Gone Girl" was okay in parts and I'm glad I did read it but boy did she knock it out of the park with "Dark Places". I now have "Sharp Objects" to read after Christmas and I hope it doesn't disappoint. I have read the books in reverse of publication but they aren't tied to each other so that doesn't matter.

I am also reading and finishing up "The Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon. I have this one on my Kindle and I'm loving it. I have the second one in the series ready to go when I finish. I love anything about Scotland and early England. Historical fiction is one of my most favorite genres.

That's about the limit of my news. The Hubs and I did spend the last two weekends working on moving things out of the office so I can have an office/craft room. I'm getting really excited about that. It will to be so nice to have everything in one spot. I'll post pics when we finish.

We are getting together with family on the Saturday after Christmas and I am so looking forward to having all my chicks together under one roof again. This Grammy/Mimi is so excited to see the Grands and their Mamas and Dadas. My daughter and son along with their wonderful mates have gifted me with 4 grandchildren whom I adore to the ends of the universe. I probably won't be able to move for a few days after Saturday and may even have to spend some time in bed but oh, what a wonderful reason.

I hope each of you has a wonderful Christmas or Hanukkah or however you celebrate the season. Even if you don't, I hope this time of year is a happy one for you. It is so hard to believe that another year is ending. Time seems to fly by faster and faster as I get older. I am trying very hard to enjoy every minute of it, even though the body sometimes tries to interfere.

Thank you all for being a part of my life this year. I have been so blessed with wonderful friends who I most likely will never meet but who have shown me love and compassion. Your wonderful comments, thoughts and emails have been so comforting this year. I hope in some small way I have returned the love I have felt from each of you.
