Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! (almost)

Christmas has come and gone, but New Year’s still looms before us. Do I have plans? Just sleep. And I’ll be hitting up the Book Barn on New Year’s Day. What better way to spend the start of the New Year than with thousands of used books? I can think of nothing more I’d rather do.

This week I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work at a consignment shop. To be honest at first I thought I was losing my vacation, but it has been so fun! Not only do I get to poke through the store, but I get to help people find what they’re looking for and sell them wonderful, unique pieces. It’s an easy job, but, I must admit it’s hard not wanting to buy everything I see! Today I sold three pieces I wanted to buy for myself. ): Oh well… I did buy some gorgeous pins and a locket. Pictures later!

For Christmas I had a wonderful time with family. For the first time in my life I will NOT be lost on my first trip somewhere. My parents very thoughtfully bought me a GPS. I love it! I even use it when I don’t need it. And tonight my wonderful Bumblebee came home from the shop! He’s fixed! I get to drive him again, and that makes me VERY happy. Of course it cost a fortune to fix the damage from the tree, but I learned a valuable lesson: never park under a tree when it snows.

I’ve read a lot of books recently – most from the public library – and I will try to write some coherent reviews at some point in the near future. I need to better plan what I want to say. Everything on GoodReads just comes out like I rushed through, and that’s not what I want for my site.

So until next time! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas or other holiday, and Happy New Year! Let’s all hope 2012 is a great year!
