Yup, I'm still alive. My original intent was to just take the week between Christmas and New Years off from blogging, but I accidentally added an extra 5 days. Sorry about that!
Anyway, I did spend plenty of time relaxing and reading. Last week I read Fathers and Sons, Sleeping Arrangements, and My Life as a Furry, Red Monster. Yes, that's Turgenev, chick lit, and an autobiography by a Muppeteer. I'm very well-rounded. ;-)
Anyway, here's a quick recap of my break:
|Our fireplace was pretty great even when it was broken...|
|But it was even better after we got it fixed!!!|
|I got to spend lots of time with these handsome guys.|
|Unfortunately, this little guy (Sery) passed away a couple of days after Christmas. He was getting up there in age (most rats only live 2-3 years, he was 2 years and 8 months) so it wasn't entirely unexpected, but I will still miss him very much.|
|As usual, we spent New Years Eve in Wildwood with some friends from college. This was the view from our balcony.|
|So pretty. :-)|
Oh, and Glen was interviewed about our dog Elvis on Coffee with a Canine, check it out!
I hope 2012 is treating everyone well so far! How did you ring in the new year??
