Landing Gently in 2018

January 1, 2018

Someone had a good time

I found the top of this champagne bottle—not just the cork, but part of the neck of the bottle, too—in the snow on the top of our truck when I went out to clear it off and dig it out in anticipation of leaving the mountain tomorrow for the first time in days. Someone had a party last night, but it wasn’t us. We had a quiet evening yesterday (though we were still awake at midnight our time) and a quiet day today (well, except for some intestinal rumbling from a breakfast that didn’t agree with us, but now we know what not to indulge in). I did some things around the house but decided to put off making resolutions, other than adding a goal of 56 books in the Goodreads 2018 Reading Challenge. I’ll get to making some goals, because I like having goals even when I don’t achieve them all, but right now I’m easing my way into the new year.

    Easy does it!

    I’m intrigued by your reading goal of 56? Mine is 50 again this year (I just made last year with a bit of panic reading at the end of 2017)

  3. Denise Says:

    I managed 103 last year, but I read a lot of YA and they are quick. I need to look into the Goodreads challenge, since my kindle automatically links and keeps tabs on what I’m reading/have read (electronically, at least). I’m terrible at reviews, though.

    Cali, I chose 56 because that’s the age I’m turning this year. 🙂

    Denise, 103 is great!
