to the Tuesday Slice of Life (SOL) community.
Thanks to Stacey, Betsy, Dana, Beth, Kathleen, Deb, Lisa, and Melanie
for hosting this meeting place each Tuesday and nurturing our writing lives.
I hate to make this public, but sometimes I'm a rule breaker. You see, my desire for books is always bigger than my capacity for reading. Right now I have an overdue book (just one day overdue) that I'm keeping for a bit longer even though there are 43 people waiting to read it. Are you wondering what it is? It's Ghost by Jason Reynolds. I can't return it unfinished! So I'm making this a short slice so I can get back to reading. We have friends in town for a few days so it's tough to squeeze in reading time.
And then I have to get back to another book that I've neglected in the holiday rush, Present Over Perfect: Leaving Behind Frantic for a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living by Shauna Niequist. It's due tomorrow and there's no way I can finish it. And 87 people are waiting for this book. Decision time . . . I'll use my Christmas gift certificate to Island Books to purchase this one. It's that good!
Since many slicers are using this week to write about their OLW for 2016, here's the link to my reflection on abide which I wrote earlier in the month. The week between Christmas and NewYear's is one of my favorite weeks of the year. I hope each of you find time to relax and recharge as 2016 draws to a close.
