The kids are back in school after a week-long break.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! As usual, we did our Thanksgiving hotpot!
The weekend before Thanksgiving, we headed down Highway 1 to Big Sur and Cambria, then to Ventura! You can read my post about this here. But if you know me by now (via the blog that is), you can probably guess that there’s a lot of eating involved. And so, don’t read the post when hungry!
Shrimp and loofah dumplings
We cooked laksa at home. Yum!
A recent finished project. This is the Around Town Cardigan using Touch of Alpaca yarn in Blush and Purple Aster.
The Light Brigade – Kameron Hurley
I’m really enjoying this SF read that has humans at war with Martians.
Sugar Rush Christmas. Fun!
On the Move – Oliver Sacks
Hot dog bun from Kee Wah Bakery
Black tea with milk
Shepherd’s pie maybe. We had laksa last night which was yummy!
Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Really enjoyed this story in which a young girl is sent by the Mayan god of death on a journey.
The Chain – Adrian McKinty
An interesting plot that starts with a girl being kidnapped and her mother made to kidnap someone else’s child in order to have her daughter released (and the chain going). The writing is nothing to shout about, the first part of the story quite thrilling, but the second part, not so much.
