It's been a very long time since I've posted anything here. But it's almost Christmas, so I figure I should get something up before the new year is upon us. It's been a very warm December, and up until Wednesday when the freezing rain hit I had been biking to work. All except 2 days in November when there was also snow. It was a really great year for cycling, and I don't think I missed a day at all, save for those two in November. I wish I would have got more longer rides in though. I think next year that will be my plan. To do more recreational riding, and not just the commuting. Or to take the long way around more often when commuting. My ride is only 7 KM and sometimes it feels like it's over before it starts.
Also finished a book lately. Speaker for the Dead. I had read Ender's Game previously, and enjoyed it immensely, although I think I found the ending a little too predictable, but I think it was supposed to be not so predictable, but I find that I have a knack for guessing how books are going to turn out. Anyway, Speaker for the Dead was completely different from Ender's game, even though it was the sequel. Because of that, I found it quite hard to get into, but once I was about halfway though I was hooked, and read the second half in about a week. Which is pretty good for me since I don't have a whole lot of time on my hands. I think I'll look into reading the rest of the series.
I guess that's about it for now. Can't wait for Christmas. The kids are extremely excited, except that Ramona and George aren't feeling so well. Winter always brings with it some kind of illness. Just a flu, so I hope they both feel better by Christmas morning, and that the rest of us are spared.
