Well, Thanksgiving is finally gone and behind us now, as we head into the Holiday Season. It was very quiet around here this week. The Boy was out of town for three days visiting family in Iowa, while Poppie and I wandered around the house, all too aware of his (very rare) absence. I did get some reading done, and that was nice – I haven’t been able to read a book uninterrupted for months! We had our little family Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, on Saturday, and invited a family friend to join us. Poppie kicked me out of the kitchen and did all of the cooking, and it was an amazing feast! The Boy was very pleased to have five days in a row with no lessons – but that all changes tomorrow, friends! Back to the grindstone we will be a-goin’. Here’s a synopsis of our week here at Pathologically Literate:

- Plan to be Flexible: Designing a Homeschool Year and Daily Schedule that Works for Your Family by Alicia Kazsuk

Hands down, my favorite read from this week was The Mystery of Mercy Close. I’ve read all of the Walsh Sisters series, and every time find each novel to be both engrossing and entertaining. Gods in Alabama was a great novel, as well – Joshilyn Jackson rocks. I’m currently reading the hell out of her most recent novel, Someone Else’s Love Story, and it promises to be every bit as good – if not better. Stella Bain was a surprisingly fast, yet quite intriguing read. After Dead did not make me feel any better about the end of the Sookie Stackhouse series, however… for shame, for shame, Charlaine Harris!
Can you believe it’s already December? It happened so fast! We’ve got a lot to do to get ready for the holidays here in the Pathologically Literate Household, and lots of fun arts and crafts projects to go along with it during our homeschool days. I suppose it’s time to get to Christmas shopping, as well… Yes, indeed, we will have our hands full here in December. I hope it is a warm and happy time for all of you.
What did you read this week? I wanna hear all about it!
