Hedgehog Life: December 2014

Merry Christmas!

Well, almost. It's just a few short days away! I hope you have all had a wonderful December - and continue to do so! I don't know about you guys, but it's been crazy busy for me. Between work, Christmas shopping, Christmas baking, Christmas decorating, and going to holiday parties and events, it's just been nonstop come-and-go.

Of course, I got sick earlier this month, so that cut into my schedule rather rudely. Gave me a few days off to recuperate, but I'll tell you: getting sick isn't how I want time off. And I was so sick that I didn't get any reading or blogging done. It just kind of threw things off just enough to be annoying. But I recovered quickly! There was no way I was going to miss a night of swing class, so I told that bug who was boss. . . .And paid for it the next day. ;-) Worth it, though!

Despite running here and there, it's actually been a pretty quiet December. Oddly enough, it feels like I got a lot of things done early, so I can sit back and enjoy the other things, like baking and watching Christmas movies. And I've actually gotten out of my reading slump as well!

Yeah, you saw that I took a mini holiday from the blog. Didn't post anything. Well, hopefully I'm back on track again. I sped through three books last weekend, and I haven't done that in a while. All very good books, too! I read:

- Mara Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw
- The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters
- The Princess in Black by Shannon & Dean Hale
- Emma and the Blue Genie by Cornelia Funke

I am almost done with:

- The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson
- Wolfsblood by Hazel West
- Dracula by Bram Stoker

So maybe I'll get through a lot more books this month than I initially thought I would!

Merry Christmas, everyone!


  1. I'm glad you're feeling better, and congrats on escaping the reading slump! Merry Christmas!

    1. Thanks, Kel; I'm glad too. Being sick is no fun, and dancing while having only just barely recovered was. . . .interesting. Made me have a relapse, but what can I say - I'm crazy about swing class and it was still fun.

      Merry Christmas! And thank you so, so much for my bookmark! It's perfect!!
