Home from San Francisco: We got home from a glorious weekend spent down in California. We made the trip to attend the Pac-12 Championship Game in Levi's Stadium (Santa Clara) and to spend a little time with daughter number two, Carly.

Not finishing books: for some weird reason I have started and decided to NOT finish several books recently. This is very rare for me so it is odd. Here are the book titles: One Week in Winter (Binchy); a Christmas book I've forgotten the title of, since I got rid of it immediately after deciding not to finish; and Love Letters (L'Engle.)
- Burial Rites by Hannah Kent---audiobook; a book club selection for some future month. This book is set in Iceland and is based on actual events surrounding a murder in the 1800s. 33% complete.
- Sight Lines by Arthur Sze---a poetry book which won the National Book Award. So far I haven't connected with any of the poems. Thankfully it is short and I will finish it. Print. 12% complete.
- The Dutch House by Ann Patchett---audiobook. I enjoyed this book so much especially since it was read by Tom hanks. I was prepared to give it four stars until the ending which I loved so much it jumped up to a five star rating.
- Disappearing Earth by Julie Philips---audiobook. A book club selection. It is really a collection of short stories, all inter-related. I found the book and the writing brilliant. Others in book club weren't so sure.

Reindeer and Santa: Ian and I went to a local nursery to see both reindeer and Santa. The reindeer were there but were underwhelming, doing nothing interesting (at least to a two year old.) Santa was no where to be found. Guess he only comes out during weekends.
