The Weekly Digest

We’re going to a choir concert tonight, figgy pudding and all, and then will cross our fingers for some sleeping in on Saturday morning before the weekend begins in earnest. Rain is in the forecast, so it also seems a good time to finish decorating the tree and to watch a movie with the kids.

We’re also looking forward to spending some time with friends, toasting to the start of the season!

Hope you have something fun planned! Some links for the downtime…

(And while I was on the Madewell site, noted these clogs on sale!)

Santa’s reindeer are female.

Strong gingerbread cookies. (And gingerbread sandwich cookies.)

A move to stop romanticizing plantation weddings.

The madness lies in looking, honestly, at how this came to pass, at how many people had to give up on the idea of democracy for things to come to this. ”
