Addison_Reads @wanderinglynn is this a team challenge where we just comment here or do we do it individually and repost? 1d
wanderinglynn @Addison_Reads they didn‘t say. I think it can be either. But I vote for individually repost. That way even if we have the same words, we can each get the 5 pts. 😉 1d
Addison_Reads @wanderinglynn I was hoping you'd say that. More points for #TeamFestivus. 😁 I'm motivated to be top of the list next week. 1d

Texreader Beautiful 1d
marleed It‘s so pretty. I recently spent 5 years of apartment living. I loved it. I was hoping to purchase a condo when I moved but that just didn‘t work in the timeframe and location I was looking. 1d
marleed Oh wait - @Texreader my apartment was at The Pearl on the Riverwalk in San Antonio so you may be familiar with it! 1d
See All 12 Comments
wanderinglynn @marleed I‘ve been living in apartments for more than 20 years. 😂 1d
marleed My SA apt was less than 2 miles from my office at Ft Sam Houston and I thought I was avoiding traffic. I had no idea how much I would love living in a public space! I really miss it - especially after 56 bags of leaves from my tiny city house! 1d
wanderinglynn @marleed 56 bags. Wow! Yes, no maintenance is one of the biggest perks. 👍🏻 1d
marleed And raking does not equate to a fair count of steps! If only I could have accounted for those bags in a BFC! 1d
Texreader @marleed ❤️❤️❤️ I love the Pearl and it‘s no wonder you loved it. It‘s not far from our house in Alamo Heights! Are you still in SA? 1d
veritysalter Gorgeous 🎄♥️ 24h
Barakzai Happy new year 19h
marleed @Texreader I left 2 years ago in 2017 to move to Kansas City - closer to my grown kids. I‘ll never get over those 5 great years of apt and no-winter living (directly 2 floors above The Twig bookshop overlooking the splash fountain and Pearl Park). I love Alamo Heights - that‘s where I found ‘my‘ H-E-B and Torchy‘s Tacos. And the SA library is the best! 18h

I have the book (gifted to me from my mom many years ago) and we read it every year. This year I also listened to this audiobook edition, read by the fabulous Meryl Strep and including about 40 minutes worth of holiday music.

wanderinglynn Since I‘m Southern, I have to say eggs, milk, bread, and toilet paper because if you‘ve ever been in the South when there‘s a threat of snow, these are the items that are gone from grocery store shelves. 😂

But really: hot tea, books, a jigsaw puzzle or two, a warm, cozy blanket, and some chocolate. Luckily, I live in an area that doesn‘t get much snow.
Chrissyreadit Do you sleep? Enquiring minds want to know!!!! You are one active captain ❤️🥰 3d

Christmas Camp: A Novel | Karen Schaler

So this is a novel written *after* the screenplay. And I have to say, I like the book better. She made some changes and I think it made the book so much better.

And the book included some fun recipes, like the Christmas Camp Sugar Cookies Secret Recipe. 🍪

I also read Christmas Camp Wedding.

Lots of words I hate for grammar reasons, but my least favorite word to hear/say is probably “soiled.”

2. My first round puzzle and this year‘s first Christmas puzzle

3. Egg nog, bourbon slushies, & ginger snaps

4. Most years, yes

Another #holidaytradition at my house. Since we don‘t normally put booze in our eggnog, we make bourbon slushies. The added cherry juice at the end, gives it a nice festive color. 🎄🥃

I‘m posting this for you @Eggs 😉🥃

marleed Oh yes. I was recently talking to a friend and she noted that she never eats a meal alone. And is seldom alone for even a morning or an afternoon, and almost never an evening. 1w
wanderinglynn @marleed I have a friend who finds it painful to be alone. She is my polar opposite. 😂 But now when I need something from Costco, I send her because she loves to go! 😂 1w
UnidragonFrag All this, all the time 😂 1w
marleed @wanderinglynn I think about that a lot - why I‘m content to be alone when so many people I know are not. I was alone often as a kid and maybe that has something to do with it. I try to tell them there is a big difference in being alone and being lonely but I‘m not sure I‘m really believed. I can point to the loneliest year of my life and I was definitely not alone. 1w
tracey38 I am so about this!!! 1w

Pawn of Prophecy | David Eddings
post image

#festivephotochallenge Dec. 3 - Naughty/Nice #wintergames #TeamFestivus

Silk/Kheldar, a Drasnian prince, spy, and thief, is both naughty & nice in the Belgariad series. Introduced in Pawn of the Prophecy, he‘s described as fairly short with a rat-like face, scruffy black hair, narrow eyes, a very long nose that tends to twitch when his cleverness was about to secure him a profit.

I watch the TV adaptation of the Grinch every year. And then when the new animated movie came out, my mom & I took my niece to see it. So I‘ve added it in as part of the #holidaytradition. Plus, Dexter got a Grinch toy last year, so we had to play with the Grinch while watching the Grinch! 😂

#wintergames #TeamFestivus

Reading_in_the_meadow Aww! Your puppy is named Dexter? So is mine 😍🤗 1w
wanderinglynn @Reading_in_the_meadow Yes! That‘s awesome! ❤️🐶🥰 1w
Reading_in_the_meadow @wanderinglynn was he named after the tv show/book? 1w
wanderinglynn @Reading_in_the_meadow No. My mom said he looked like a Dexter (and she‘s never seen the show). What about your Dexter? 1w
Reading_in_the_meadow @wanderinglynn yeah.. 😂 he was named after the fictional serial killer. We got him before the awful finale, in my defense. 1w

#TeamFestivus another easy 5 pts! Comment below (or post this yourself for that extra participation point)

I‘d go to Australia because I‘ve never been and I‘d love to celebrate Christmas in summer. 🎄☀️🌏

@i-am-papercrane @Addison_Reads @Ads0123 @ChasingOm @EliNeedsMoreShelves @Teebe @Samanthagutt @Chaoticgoodhufflepuff @Readage @Chrissyreadit @LouBeth @Kdgordon88 @MaleficentBookDragon

LeeRHarry I‘ve been in Aus for 20 years and still find it a bit strange 😆but it‘s lovely to sit outside with good company and a glass of wine 😊 1w
samanthagutt I wish the North Pole really existed so I could go there for Christmas! I‘d just love to go somewhere that would guarantee a White Christmas. I live in NJ so it‘s not impossible, but it rarely happens 😔 1w
teebe Banff or Lake Louise with my entire family. I need snow for the holidays so I wouldn‘t want to go anywhere warmer for Christmas, and I love the mountains. 1w
wanderinglynn @teebe Banff & Lake Louise are both on my list of places to see. 👍🏻 1w
wanderinglynn @samanthagutt The NP & Santa‘s workshop would be cool. 1w

Chrissyreadit @samanthagutt how do you deal with no cell phone? 1w
wanderinglynn @Chrissyreadit 🙌🏻 And I think Samantha means she got all the points *except for* no cell phone & those other things she listed. 1w
samanthagutt Thanks for clarifying @wanderinglynn , that‘s exactly what I meant! Sorry for the confusion, I just thought it would be a lot quicker to name the points I didn‘t get 😂 @Chrissyreadit 6d
