This ornament is so old, I‘m not sure where I even got it from. I had before I ever got married, maybe since the first Christmas I lived on my own, so around 18 years or so. #wintergames #ghostsofxmas @BookwormAHN

1. Brain Damage by Frieda McFadden, I‘ve enjoyed all her books, but this one was so clever.
2. Reader, I Murdered Him - mainly because I was so excited for this one, but just couldn‘t get into it and DNF.
3. Just hanging out with my family and watching the ball drop on TV.😆
4. No, I don‘t think many places in the US do. However if we did, I probably would shop the sales as I do the Black Friday sales.😁
5. Pretty green and mild temps. ⬇️

So I lagged with posting for #scarathlon but was still reading.😄 working on tallying all my points. I finished this one several days ago, but didn‘t care for it. It was all fluff and no plot. If you really enjoy romance you might like it, but just wasn‘t for me. @Bookwormjillk
