After a busy and happy Christmas with ten adults and eight children plus visits from friends with their families, we are back home and ready to start 2016.
Our New Year’s Eve celebration was a good night’s sleep. I clocked an impressive 13 hours and we all skipped breakfast and went straight to lunch.
In honor of the 1st day of the New Year, I read the book A Man Called Ove by the Swedish author Fredrik Backman. Highly recommended! I picture the main character as the old man from the movie Up. An easy and heart-warming read. (and I teared up a little).
Finally I have a quote from one of my very favorite series of books…the last volume of which came out in 2015. The kids and I are halfway through it and hoping against hope that we will never reach the end.
“There’s no such thing as im-POSSIBLE, Hiccup, only im-PROBABLE. The only thing that limits us are the limits to our imagination.” ~Cressida Cowell How to Cheat a Dragon’s Curse (volume 4 of the How to Train Your Dragon series)
