Good morning blogland. It is very cliché but where did this past year go? It went by so quickly. I feel like the older you get the faster time goes. We had a nice White Christmas last week and now the temps are really dropping. Single digits this week especially at night and early mornings.

I wanted to take a minute to thank you all for taking the time to stop by my blog and read my posts and leave thoughtful comments. I have known several of you for many years and I appreciate our online friendships. I have also met some new blog friends this past year and it has been awesome chatting books and finding new blogs to visit. To all my blogging friends, Happy, Healthy New Year. May 2018 be full of good books, good health and joyful moments. xo

Well, I rounded up a few of my favorite bookish things from 2017 to share with today’s Sunday Post. It is always fun to reflect on the past reading/blogging year.

Here are my Bookish Favorites of 2017 in no particular order alongside my Christmas cookies. This is the recipe that I’ve been using for years and it never fails. The key is to line the cookie trays with parchment paper when baking so they don’t burn.

Oh my gosh, I cannot believe that December is flying by so quickly and that Christmas is right around the corner. This is always a busy time of year and I haven’t gotten in as much reading time as I would have liked to, but that’s ok. Once the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over hopefully I can get more time to read.

Lately, I feel like after a busy day I can’t sit and focus on reading. I tend to gravitate towards crocheting instead, I think it’s because my hands are moving. Does that make sense? With crochet, depending on the project, I usually don’t have to focus too much and I can just do it while watching tv.
