I spent the day moving things back into place after having the carpets cleaned. I didn’t have enough time to put everything back where it belongs and make the place presentable before my sister arrived so I still have a little bit of unpacking to do. Everything is tucked neatly away, though, so that the place looks decent.
Have I mentioned that Wolf is here for a few days? Look at the little old man. When he was younger he’d find a way out of his sweater in a few hours if you put one on him… now he has no problem keeping one on.
I thought I’d talk about my favorite Christmas book. I don’t read it every year, but every few years or so I like to pull it out. Let It Snow has three novellas written by YA novelists John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle. All of the novellas are connected, so it’s best to read them in order. The book takes place in Gracetown on the night of a big snowstorm. Jubilee’s train breaks down in the first story, Jubilee Express, by Maureen Johnson. In John Green’s story, A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle, a group of boys brave a blizzard to make it to the waffle house where a group of cheerleaders are hiding out. The Patron Saint of Pigs, the third and final novella in the book, by Lauren Myracle follows the aftermath of the storm and is the story that first introduced me to teacup pigs.
I couldn’t tell you which story is my favorite. The first is hilarious, the second is an adventure and the third features a teacup pig. This book is quick read, so if you have some free time and want a cute book to lose yourself in for a few hours I highly recommend that you check it out.
