Well, can you believe Christmas is actually over? I can hardly get over it. There’s such a large build-up all through November and December that I never know what to do with myself come Dec. 26. Luckily, there’s New Year’s to console me.

The Winlock Timberland Library has scheduled A Blizzard of Tales and Tunes for 2 p.m. Friday. Children of all ages are invited to a storm of winter and holiday stories (as well as lots of songs). Children’s author, poet, and award-winning songwriter Eric Ode will be joined by that crabby tabby, Scratch the Barn Cat, in what is sure to be a fantastic display. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Winlock Timberland Library.
All Timberland libraries will be closed Tuesday, Jan. 1, in observance of New Year’s Day. Libraries will resume their regular schedules Jan. 2. If you have any questions, please contact the Winlock library at (360) 785-3461.
Well, that’s it for this week, guys. I hope you had a great holiday season, despite some of the strangest, most unpredictable weather I have ever encountered, and I’ve lived in the Northwest for six years now. Happy New Year’s!
