To every one of our readers who happen to be celebrating something festive at this time of year, Tony and I wish all of you a very happy holidays! As has become our tradition, tomorrow we travel into the frigid North, this year to Canada, where we will spend time with my family and I will fastidiously avoid doing any kind of work, because my brain = scrambled eggs right now. Instead, I am going to try to read at least two books and to venture out of the house as little as possible. Here is a picture of Emmy who decided to bury herself in the couch at the cabin we rented one year at Christmas time... I am using it as my inspiration for this year.

Christmas Emmy

I still have a bunch of books that I need to talk about before the year is up, and hopefully I will muster the energy to do so in individual posts, so if all goes well, this site will be far from dead. I figure holiday hibernation time is the perfect time to catch up on my blogging; hopefully there will be some fun content for y'all to discover in the new year! OK, time to pack and then maybe snuggle with the pups before they get sent off to puppy jail for the holidays (though no tears, because they just get to play with other neglected pooches all day every day, so it is essentially their idea of heaven). Happy holidays!
