Time to read!
I took a leap and brined the turkey. It was amazing. Best turkey ever, hands down. We also had a local ham, and everything came together well for the meal. A smaller Christmas, only 15 this year! Ken and I both worked on Christmas Eve, and my folks had the boys for the day. I had a window of time where I wrapped like a fiend... I never got to my cards, and I never did get ANY baking done. I have grandiose ideas about how to be better organized next year. Although I think all told, things came together pretty well.
I am also going through my shelves and reading some books that have been kicking around for a while. You know those books, the ones you buy for one of those days and then other more interesting books come along? This isn't quite one of those - it was one I borrowed from a coworker after the yearly book sale. It was good - reminded me a bit of Crightons books. Big scientific ideas, the lure of big bucks, and some protectionism thrown in to the adventure. A good vacation read.
