I hope everyone had a good thanksgiving time with family and friends!
We celebrated on Tuesday with the parents and one of my brothers and his wife (the other brother couldn’t make it in this year). A wonderful time for catching up and hanging out. We rewatched Danny Boyle’s Sunshine, an odd and enjoyable sci-fi film from a few years ago now. Also watched some Doctor Who, which was very fun.
I spent yesterday limping around the house and sleeping, feeling exhausted, ill, and in pain. I have a chronic back issue that is perennial, though it is bearable most days. Every month or two, however, it flares up pretty bad, and at least once a year it puts me off my feet for a day or two. Yesterday wasn’t that bad, but it was bad enough to warrant taking it easy. I watched The Two Towers, and then felt like switching gears, so I rewatched Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, one of my favorite films in the Potter franchise. I don’t usually watch this much television in a day, but it’s the holidays and I was feeling lousy, so I have no regrets.
I was also pleasantly surprised when I woke up today to find The Book of Secrets at #18 on the Top 100 Coming of Age list on Amazon. Sales continue to putter along, enough to keep it on the list, at least, and in the upper 50,000 sales rank in the Kindle store, for which I am grateful and blessed.
See you around the blog!
