There was not much relaxing or leisure reading this weekend as hoped for, but there was a lot of grading papers, some brownie baking for a holiday gathering, a rainy Saturday, a pot of Julia's French Onion Soup, fun with friends, and a bit of wassailing.

I didn't get photos of the holiday cheer but here are few of the quieter bits. Note to self: Need to carve out more quiet time. Not rested or ready for the work week ahead (I know I say that every Sunday night). And I am pretty sure this weekend had less than 48 hours in it. But, two more weeks until break, friends. Two. more. weeks.

And last week, Flavio got a new (used) car! Low mileage, low price, well maintained, and driven by a little old lady to work and back. My favorite part: heated seats! My butt has never felt toastier. This was a great deal and we're stoked. Check out his g-ride:
