It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

It's December! Can you believe it?

For me, that means the start of summer, and it was at least a warm start to the season although we are expecting a wintery blast later in the week so it isn't going to last long.

It also means the start of the 2013 Virtual Advent tour. The first schedule post is up so be sure to check out the Christmas memories of the participants each day. And if you meant to sign up but didn't quite get around to it yet, it's not too late. Whilst we do have something scheduled for each day, we are always happy to have multiple participants on any given day. The more the merrier, as they say! I guess I should start to think about what most VA post is going to look like this year.

Check out all the details at the Virtual Advent Tour blog.

What does this all mean for you? Well, for one thing it means more posts to read! As I have done over the last couple of years, I have been saving up relevant quotes as I find them and will be sharing them through the month. The first year I did this I had loads and loads of quotes, but this year I have a lot less so there won't be something everyday but there will at least be a couple every week!

So, that's it for today. I am not reading a whole lot still, but I am sure that will pick up. If nothing else, I have a couple of books I need to read by Wednesday and Thursday. If only I could locate the Wednesday book which is actually my book club book!

Currently reading 

Not a lot really. Just started listening to Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel.

Up Next 

Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey and Emma by Jane Austen


  1. My plan is to read each day's post(s). I hope I have follow-through!

    Here's my Sunday Salon.

    1. Sounds a lot like my plan Deb! Hopefully I can follow through too!

  2. I am looking forward to Virtual Advent! The first two posts are up, so off to a good start! (Sorry I sort of hi-jacked the opening post... I thought we were teaming up with them. I think they forgot. Oh, well..)

    1. No worries on hijacking! Just meant I had something for day 2.

  3. How cool! I hadn't heard of the Virtual Advent but I just signed up to be a part of it. Love the idea!

  4. Glad to have you on board Ashley!

  5. I wish Dec. meant the start of summer here, too. But it's freezing in Canada. Consider yourself lucky, enjoy!
