We were at the public library today researching the Hopi Indians and picked up ten or so holiday books. Tonight we read Christmas Trolls by Jan Brett, and I'm recommending every little bit of it.
Today I have actually watched a movie in German, done some needle felting, made three little troll dolls for the nature table, and put three hot meals on the table. Rooms have been vacuumed, and nails have been trimmed and filed. Daddy did lots of laundry and dishes, but for me just making something and watching a movie has been a coup of sorts. People, I read a book this week, Gilead by Marilynne Robinson.
