Eeeek!  It's winter and we put up our tree today while it snowed and Christmas is in less than three weeks and I have break in two weeks and everything is all right with the world.

In the midst of all the Christmas shopping, I managed to snag a book for myself which I hope to read over the month between studying and finals.  The book is called Hidden Christmas and it's by Tim Keller, who I rave about on the regular, so this choice was no surprise.  I started it tonight and it is very good.  Shocker.

Also, here's a quick run down of everything I plan to do on break, simply because I cannot shut up about it.

Read – Poldark series by Winston Graham, (finish) Miracles by C.S. Lewis, (finish) Holy is the Day by Carolyn Weber, (continue) The Fellowship by Phillip and Carol Zaleski, and also begin my annual re-read of The Lord of the Rings.
Watch – Lord of the Rings (always), all the Christmas movies, and season 2 of Poldark
Bake – real, spicy gingerbread
Write – blog posts (so many), goals for 2017, etc.
Other things I hope to do include working on my personal photo book for 2016, picking up my lonely guitar, and applying to staff at Summit in the summer (!!!).

Finally, I'm following along with the She Reads Truth advent study again this year, because it never fails to help me see the amazing story of Christmas with new eyes all over again every year.  We're only a week in, and I love it already.

And because I simply cannot help myself, here's a snowy picture.

Alright, that's it for now.  I'm looking forward to a week of studying for finals and getting ready for Christmas!
