Happy New Year!

Whoo, just squeaking in before the day ends.

Wishing all of you a Happy New Year, and a wonderful year to come.

We've been lazing around, enjoying having the kids home for the holidays. Our daughter stayed through the end of the Rose Bowl today (Oregon won—what a knucklebiter of a game!), and our son has to drive back to L.A. in a few days. Too soon, but it's been wonderful.

The Boy has been watching the most recent season of Bosch with us, and our daughter wanted to acquaint us with Big Little Lies, so we binge-watched Season 1 of that. Highly entertaining, though I'm not sure why it's set in Mendocino other than the beautiful scenery. Culturally, it feels much more like Marin County, and there is SO much histrionic drama. Which I guess is the point...

I finished reading The Devil In The White City a few weeks ago, and also read Thomas Tryon's The Other (not as impressive in our current culture as it probably once was) and Where The Crawdads Sing (very disappointed in the last chapters, and I have mixed feelings overall). Next up, Chuck Wendig's Blackbirds.

Meanwhile, there has been too much eating (of course), a fair amount of biking in the c-o-o-o-l-d, and much overall relaxation.

I hope your holidays have been good as well!
