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
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.
