Happy Holidays!

December 23, 2021

I have done it again, told myself I would write a blog post tomorrow, or maybe the next day, soon…and let the time get away from me. But you know what? That’s okay. It’s the holidays. I bought books on my trip to D.C. and I really want to spend the next few days reading them and drinking wine. Let’s do it!

Worldcon was good, if strange. I loved doing something different and seeing people I don’t see often. I was a Hugo finalist’s “designated acceptor” and so got to do all the fun Hugo stuff with none of the anxiety. (My friend did not win, alas.) But with omicron, things got stressful. I didn’t do as much as I normally do at a con.

I did spend quite a bit of time playing tourist in D.C. because the weather was great and there’s so much to see. The National Zoo was within walking distance of the hotel, and with no crowds I got to spend as much time as I wanted watching the baby panda. So beautifully adorable! Walking around I saw cardinals and some other east coast birds that I don’t get to see in Colorado. It was so good for my soul.

I’ve had both a PCR and rapid test since returning, and both are negative, so I’ll be spending Christmas with my family, and that is good.

Now if we could just get some snow…
