Thankful thoughts for 2015, avoiding all the cliches we’re not meant to use:
- TV and Netflix when you are laid up
- Interesting conversations about topics you never dreamed you would have to deal with (aka the teenage years are going to be ….)
- Travel when we can get it
- Fun games
- A long excellent summer
- A re-found appreciation for ice cream
Movie: Lost track a little, guess I’ll give The Martian the best movie award this year, if only because science.
Music: I discovered some streaming, and Lucy started with Pop (Katy Perry, Taylor Swift et al) but the biggest surprise was a group from the more recent past with a solid, solid catchy album – The Fratellis with Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied
Book: It seems to be an ever reducing list of books in a year, and this year is no exception. But I feel that final credit has to be to the conclusion of The Wheel of Time with A Memory of Light. Brandon Sanderson brought it home. Although I like his stuff better.
