Thanksgiving and Other Fun Stuff

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Mine was filled with time spent with family and while I have lots of family, it wasn't everyone, which was in many ways very nice.  We spent Thursday with my sister and only four of her five kids and only one of her six grandchildren.  On Friday, we cleaned and set up our Christmas tree . . . very early for us, we are usually doing it around the 15th of December.  My daughter and son-in-law and their three girls, my brother-in-law and my niece were over for dinner on Saturday.  On Sundaym we finished decorating.  I am exhausted.  It was good to go back to work today so that I could relax.

While our fearless leader is under the weather, I thought I would pick up the slack a bit.  I've updated the books for October, November and December.  I just finished What the Dead Want.  I so very much enjoyed it.  It took a bit to get into it but once there, I thoroughly enjoyed it and have to say that the ending was really good.   If you are one of those people that read the last chapter first, you'll never figure this one out by doing so!

A new poll will be coming out soon.  Keep an eye out for it. 

If anyone wants to do an exchange, while it is probably a tad late to do it for December, we might want to do something to pick up the douldrum blues of winter.  Let me know what you all think.  And if anyone wants to run it, that would be good too!

Thanks for all you're doing. We could have a winter swap. It could be pegged toward Valentine's Day, or Beat the Mid-Winter Doldrums or ??? I'd be happy to run it. What does everyone else think?

Sounds like a great plan.
