Autumn becomes winter




The autumn reading challenge is done, but my list sure isn't. Having three children preparing speeches for a tournament that is only three weeks away is my excuse; my brain is ready for a round of Sudoku just before bed, and that is it. I must resolve to change that for the winter, though. I function much better when my mind is full of new ideas. Soon to come: The Winter Reading Challenge (beautiful winter picture, too, right, Janie?)
