Task 1: Tell us: What’s your favorite trilogy?
Oh this is easy since there are few trilogies these days that don't make me want to scream in despair. It would be His Dark Materials. The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass are so good. I love that Pullman ended each book with a fine resolution for that part of it and made the stakes higher and higher in each. And I cannot wait for the tv series!
Task 2: Chalking the door is an Epiphany tradition in some places, to bless a home for the coming year. Different patterns exist, with different meanings. If you could create your own pattern to bless your house next year, what would it look like?
Tulips are my favorite flower, but roses make me think of my father and mother. Actually roses in general make me think of my family. My dad grew roses and had them twining around our house when we were kids. He would stay outside and make sure that they were healthy, watered, and trim them down. The things grew like ivy though and started to grow up to our porch's railings and I think it drove my mom crazy cause the ants would crawl up on them and be all over the place. It made me feel like I lived in a tower though.
Task 3: Compile a post containing one image for every gift mentioned / added in each new verse of The Twelve Days of Christmas (lyrics here: https://www.41051.com/xmaslyrics/twelvedays.html).
Task 4: Prepare your favorite spicy dish or holiday drink containing spices and share a photo. Also sharing the recipe is optional but welcome!
Hmm will do this later!
Book: Read a book with three main characters; books about traveling on a journey to a faraway place, a book that’s part of a trilogy, with a star on the cover, with the word “twelve” or “night” in the title, or concerning kings or spices.
I don't think I will read Annihilation for this one. Going to pick something else. Still though, I loved the movie and soundtrack.
