Merry Grinchmas! 🎄
And this is to the ones of you that don't enjoy Christmas. My little Caragh sends you a big "I feel you" hug ❤️
Remember, New Year is just around the corner! Stay strong!
Feeling very grinchy tonight. My neighbor has been blaring their music ALL night and is RUINING #jolabokaflod.
It‘s not even Christmas music. It‘s like hotel cocktail lounge Muzak that was never intended to be played at full volume and makes me feel like I should be eating canapés in a puffy-sleeved LBD. ?
Snuggled up with April and watching the cartoon How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The college I work at decided to close tomorrow because of the storm (it‘s definitely snowing!), so my winter break begins a day early! An extra day to sleep, snuggle, and read sounds like a good gift to me 💤 🐈⬛ 📚
1. As a child we always went to see my Great Grandmother in late afternoon and Santa always came when we were gone. We always got new PJ‘s that we could open right away and then we had to wait until after dinner to open the rest. Now as an adult we all spend time at my sister‘s/Mom‘s and play games and the grandkids open gifts.
2. Meal changes all the time..this year it‘s lasagna on Christmas Eve and turkey dinner on Christmas Day!
1. My immediate family (bro‘s fam, parents, man cub and me) do our Christmas stuff. We‘ve done that since I was young because we usually had to travel to my grandparent‘s house across state and instead of bringing all the gifts there and then back we just did stuff before we left (mom usually had to work at least part of the day if it fell during the work week).

I loved Dr. Seuss when I was little, and this time of year I love all things Grinch! 💚
#FestivePhotoChallenge Day 15: Festive Read. My two year old is SUPER into the Grinch, and we have pretty much read this to him every night for a month. Today, he plunked down in front of the tree and read the whole book to me!! I wish I could post a video to Litsy because it was the CUTEST. #wintergames2021 #mistletoemaniacs #selfiescavengerhunt #readingbyglowofChristmaslights
This #ornamenthunt challenge has made me realize that I do NOT have any ornaments featuring books! This will have to be rectified immediately! But for now, here is my beloved literary character The Grinch!! #wintergames2021 #mistletoemaniacs #bookish
So, when I think of Neighbors decore, sometimes you have annoying ones, Like in The movie Christmas Vacation, or the Grinch who removes all decor from his Neighbors, or the house on the bottom, that really exists, from one of my photos and you wonder 🤔 Day 23 Neighbors Decor, #WinterGames2021 #FestivePhotoChalange #TeamGameSleighers @StayCurious
This was a hard book to rate. I didn‘t even know about this before I joined Litsy and Dr Seuss is not a know author in Norway either.
So reading this for the first time as a adult and never having watched the movie either, is probably not the best of ideas
12th book for #DashingDecember
Unexpectedly busy weekend here, as I got a last-minute gig to cover a timpanist who has pneumonia. Added to the regular holiday fatigue, I‘ve been wiped out all weekend!
I hadn‘t read this since childhood, though we watch the Boris Karloff-narrated special every year. Gotta say I like the tv version better, though the book is very good. “You‘re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” really makes a difference!
Anybody know of any other Christmas books that are not romance-centric? Or even no romance at all?
I haven't read this in years. As a kid, I never questioned how the Grinch stole shoving everything up a chimney that he barely fit down or how the dog managed to pull a sleigh with everyone's Christmas up a rather tall mountain. I still love it though. #wintergames2021 #teamgamesleighers #bfc21 #wintercosy #averymerryreadathon #dashingdecember #averymerrybingo #christmasmyway #blackwellsbookshelfreadathon
I was really worried about the points this week because I knew I wasn‘t gonna be able to read much. But I grabbed an impulse read that sounded fun and made 13,360 points in the word search. To that I added 1160 points from the holiday game, 10 points for the impulse read, 25 points for the holiday read, 25 points for the team movie, and 400 points four hours read times challenges read for.#MistletoeManiacs #WinterGames
