Merry and Bright
Eliza has been very busy while we wait. Knitting. Baking. Making origami ornaments.
James has even been painting, and his mother has made a nice holiday display of his art work. (Clearly a gifted child!)
Me? I mostly make messes and take pictures. I like playing outside.. and I've swum miles in the pool...
We've all been reading to James, a lot.
I also have finished reading one adult book, The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith aka JK Rowling. It's the second in a series and I loved it, and have begun another, Norwegian by Night by Derek Miller. He has the best line I've read in a while, and so fitting for these times we are bringing children into the world in: "And my granddaughter thinks I'm losing my mind," the 82 year-old grandpa says, "Let me tell you something, young lady. I'm not crossing the aisle of sanity. The aisle is crossing me."
