After not getting any reading in yesterday for this extended weekend’s Thankfully Reading Weekend, today I did get a little in toward the end of the day. I continued reading The Lord God Made Them All, the fourth book in the All Creatures Great and Small series (at least in the order here in the U.S.), which I started a couple of months ago but haven’t finished yet. I slowly am making my way through the series (the first couple a reread, the rest new to me) that I started last year.
Most of the day, though, was spent with my my wife celebrating Thanksgiving here at home since she is going back to work tonight (midnight shift into Friday morning) after being off from work since last week. We had turkey and all the fixings. Well, I did anyway. Since she is a vegan, she didn’t have turkey but a “Tofurkey” ham, but all our fixings were the same: sweet potato and green bean casseroles, and pumpkin pie.
As planned, we watched our traditional Thanksgiving movies Planes, Trains, and Automobiles and Pieces of April. We also watched Home for the Holidays, one of my wife’s favorite Thanksgiving movies.
After she went to sleep for a few hours, I finally was able to settle down and read:
Tomorrow, I still plan to start a reread of Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. However, I might not get to reading Always Look on the Bright Side of Life: A Sortabiography by Eric Idle as I initially had planned this weekend. For now, I just plan to go back and forth between The Lord God Made Them All and Good Omens. We’ll see how that goes.
Stay tuned. I’ll be back to report on my progress tomorrow night, Saturday and Sunday nights too.
