The Saturday List - December Version

Christmas will be here in less than two weeks but somehow it just does not seem festive this year.  Making a last ditch effort lining up Zoom calls, more movies and some down time.  But for now, here's a new idea.....making a few lists, that I'll update once a month.....

1) Current Read   Above All Things by Tanis Rideout.

The Paris Wife meets Into Thin Air in this breathtaking debut novel of obsession and divided loyalties, which brilliantly weaves together the harrowing story of George Mallory's ill-fated 1924 attempt to be the first man to conquer Mount Everest, with that of a single day in the life of his wife as she waits at home in England for news of his return. 
2) Currently Stitching   Ewe and Eye canvas  
I don't see this brand much in needlepoint stores but love their stuff and have completed two projects from their whimsical selection that has a bit of a early American edge. This will be a pillow and I am almost done!

3) Neflix Recommendation    Velvet
Subtitles, great looking Spanish men, style, intrigue and all set in a 1950's upscale department store in Madrid.What's not to love?

4) Equine Product Recommendation   EquiFit Half Pads
I bought one of these for myself with a holiday bonus and could not decide what color to pick (they come in solid black, black/blue, black/brown and black/red). Opted for the black/brown version. You can also buy fleece covers for these and show in them. Love the quality, not too bulky.
5) Recipe Recommendation  A Ragu
This time of year I love to make a good ragu. They take time but there is nothing better than a great ragu by the fire on a cold winter night. Here is a recipe for one from Bon Appetite but I would switch ground pork for the veal (I don't like to eat veal). 

6) Whatever Else I'm not a game person and it's hard to play games with just two people but here is an oldie. Many years ago I used to play Rook once a week - there were four of us and we got quite good at it. It was so much fun.  
7) Clothing Pick    Would love to add one of these sweaters to my winter wardrobe. Even though I may not ski this year, you can still look like a ski bunny.
And lastly, love this candle, to add to your holiday gift giving last minute and how perfect is this right now?


  1. Great suggestions.. Btw, I loved Velvet.. It continues into 'Coleccion Velvet'.Wonderful series.. Have you seen "Crash Landing on You?' It's Korean and in the same genre, but with more intrigue.. Good dramas, from other countries. Hollywood no longer has an imagination..

  2. I have on Christmas Great Collections of gifts for horse lovers you can give these gifts to anyone as horses symbolize energy, strength, loyalty, perseverance, and inspiration.
