Murder in the Snow: A Cotswold Christmas Mystery - Gladys Mitchell Thin Air: (Shetland Series 6) - Ann Cleeves An English Murder - Cyril Hare Murder With Peacocks - Donna Andrews

Unfortunately, I did have to work on Friday, but I'm plotting lots of good reading and watching over the weekend. My daughter and her new husband will be visiting starting next Wednesday, so weekend after next I have a 5 day weekend, since I'm taking the 9th, 10th & 11th off!

 

My big plan for this weekend is to get some of the holiday decorations up. I always decorate my front porch, and will get that finished since it's going to be dry all weekend. There's nothing like decorating outside in typical Oregon weather. 

 

I have a pair of new to me Christmas mysteries on tap: Murder in the Snow by Gladys Mitchell, which was previously published as Groaning Spinney, and An English Murder by Cyril Hare. I also have the next in the Shetland Island series, Thin Air, checked out of the library, and finally got my hand on Murder with Peacocks, the first in the Meg Langslow series!

 

I'm also going to find time to watch some movies/television, and will likely turn to one of my old favorites, Poirot, while I do some Christmas sewing - I want to get the Christmas stockings I am making for my daughter finished before they arrive on Thursday!
