Hello from 2023.

Raining much harder this morning. Not really looking forward to a bedraggled walk, but the dog needs one, so out we go. β˜”οΈ

Finished Reading: The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow πŸ“š Thoroughly enjoyed, perhaps a bit more than her second.

I’ve been on a big movie kick this month, mostly because once the semester ends I finally have time. This afternoon is probably going to be The Tragedy of Macbeth (2021) πŸŽ₯

Someone does not want to go for a walk in the rain.

Year in books for 2022

The books I finished reading in 2022 (and tracked here). πŸ“š

Currently reading: The Miraculous True History of Nomi Ali by Uzma Aslam Khan πŸ“š

Finished Reading: Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin πŸ“š

Even though it didn’t always feel like it, I was able to make some time for gaming this past year. Looking forward to more next year (although probably not for the first couple months…)

Finished Reading: Nona the Ninth (The Locked Tomb Series Book 3) by Tamsyn Muir πŸ“š Continues an excellent series (although I will always provide caveats and warnings when recommending)

Ribbons

Happy holidays!

Planning to rewatch the 2011 Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy this afternoon. 🍿

A cool, misty morning. Here’s hoping the air quality slowly improves.

Rewatching the first Home Alone.

Carrots and broccoli

Brewing a bit of green tea and snacking on an apple

Nothing quite like an hour-long nap to really underline the languor of vacation

Carrot, cabbage, and cilantro

A pensive afternoon look for Finn
