This time of year brings some pretty sunrises to my neighborhood. You probably can't tell, but the house across the way there still has the Christmas lights on - kind of fun to see at 7 am on a December morning!
I love Christmas trees and lights. I finally got my tree decorated late last week, and it is a pretty sight in our living room!
No Christmas is complete without the Nativity set up either. My dad made this for us around 1978 or so. I love it because it's different and unique.
Have you read Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng? My book club read it last year sometime and thought it was an interesting story. This week I discovered that Reese Witherspoon has made a miniseries out of the story where she plays one of the main characters and Kerry Washington (of "Scandal" fame) plays the other main character. It's pretty good, and has entertained us all week! It streams on Hulu.
I love my local public library and always have a long list of books on hold that I am waiting my turn to read. Sometimes, by the time I get the email that a book is ready for me to pick up, I have forgotten what the book was about! This morning (Weds), I ran in to get the book that was ready for me, Piece of My Heart. It was so fun to find my book on the Hold shelf, and think, "Oh wow!"
This is the last book in the series written by Mary Higgins Clark (who passed away in January) and her younger writing partner, Alafair Burke. I've been looking forward to reading it!
And one last little thing to share. I always enjoy sewing binding, and here's what I've been sewing this week.
How about some frosted trees and peppermint striped binding, just for fun?!
Thanks for visiting on I Like Thursday!
