December? Seriously, how did this happen? Bundle up…take good care of yourself…and feel free to share your own current obsessions in the comments.
Reading: Re-reading lots of Shirley Jackson short stories and Dickens’s A Christmas Carol.
Video: Re-watching “Wolf Hall” so I can finally read the latest Hilary Mantel novel.
Audio: Some Christmas standards, but also lots of classic glam rock.
(Tr)eats: Japanese takeout from a new place in our neighborhood.
Drinks: Real hot chocolate.
Garb: Brrr, it got cold out. In the evenings I’ve been wearing leggings and a staff logo sweatshirt that I brought home from my workplace. That’s how things have devolved around here lately. Well, I still manage to look presentable for video meetings and trips out of the house, at least…
Beauty Products: LUSH Lord of Misrule shower gel (black pepper, vanilla, patchouli).
Pleasures: The cats’ whole-hearted and reckless enjoyment of our Christmas decorations.
Plans: Take a few days off. Do some cleaning and organizing. Spend New Year’s Eve video-visiting with our usual circle of local friends; the best we can do, for now!
