Currently... Slice of Life
Ah, the joys of Christmas break! YES, I love what I do, AND, YES, I love having an extended holiday break.
My red lipstick. It is super cheap, but fantastic. Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss # 01. It is the perfect vintage-chic red. Lovely, costs under $5, and is long-lasting. I realized just how much I love it when mine fell out of my bag & got lost who-knows-where, and I had to immediately go purchase another so as not to be without it.
Greg Iles' Turning Angel, the 2nd book in his Penn Cage series. This series was recommended to me by a coach at my high school. That alone makes it read-worthy in my book, BUT...I thoroughly enjoyed the first one and am devouring this one, as well. It is a murder-mystery set in the south with a lawyer-turned-writer MC. I'm also readying Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray. I brought home 5 other novels for my reading delight over the break, including I Crawl Through It by A.S.King, and Kissing in America by Margo Rabb.
Elf. The Santa Clause. Love, Actually, and gearing up for It's a Wonderful Life. Ah, the holidays! Also, must mention my newish favorite show, The Librarians. So, so good. Kitshy Indiana Jones only with genius magic-chasing librarians--what's NOT to love?
My home Christmas-ready. My tree is up and the stockings are hung. Gifts have been purchased and those that have arrived are wrapped and under the tree. Ingredients for my famous enchiladas have been gathered (we'll do the traditional turkey dinner later with family, but Christmas Day will be a Tex-Mex fiesta in the Schulz casa!)
How very blessed I am. I have the very best job in the universe and a wonderful family. I have clothes to wear, food to eat, and books to read. Life is so good, ya'll.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to you all! May your days be Merry & Bright!
