Welcome. It’s New Years Eve and Omicron has put a damper on any socially close revelry we could have planned. We are now old pros at rethinking vacations – we are old pros at rethinking any day, actually.

Today, for example, you might not attend that dinner party, costume party, or other party, but you could investigate one (or more) of Eric Asimov’s choices for sparkling wines with what to see 2021. Or, if champagne is not your thing, there is Topo Chico, There are by Martinelli, there is a range of alcohol-free spirits to explore.

To consider fit year, read on some tech projects that have improved the world this year or take one of the many musical documentaries. To see the food trends forecasters suspect it will be big in 2022. (Edible mugs! Lab-grown chicken!)

Or get inspired by the At Home and Away community. Wednesday I shared some reader favorites of 2021. Here are a few more to check out this weekend (submissions edited for length and clarity).

  • “I watched in bursts every episode of the BBC program “The world of gardeners” on BritBox or Amazon Prime Video. Not only is there an almost endless supply of ideas and planting instructions, but there are also famous garden tours and videos submitted by viewers of their own gardens from around the world. I feel like I have a degree in horticulture. —Linda Steiner, Madison, Wisconsin.

  • “The best book of 2021 is “Land of the cloudy cuckoo clock”, by Anthony Doerr. As soon as I finished this book, I went back to the beginning and started reading again. I’ve never done this before, and I didn’t even think about it. —Kathy Miller, Edenton, North Carolina

  • “My best for 2021 was to go to a Broadway show again. My daughter lives in Manhattan and we have seen ‘Hadestown’ in October and loved it, although it was a very unusual depiction of Greek mythology. Also, seeing the Rolling Stones at their last concert at Hard Rock Live was very special. Sometimes the best days aren’t apparent until we have the worst days. —Jonathan Jordan, Florida

  • “This year I shot “The Snake’s Gift” by Helen Elaine Lee on my shelf where it has languished for many years. It enveloped me, captured my full attention. The history, the culture, the people so intimately described. It stayed with me for a long time after I finished reading it. —Alexa Berton, Brattleboro, Vermont.

  • “Nervously awaiting the joyous occasion of my youngest son’s wedding just as the Delta variant arrived, I had the wonderful serendipity at the Mattituck Public Library to find “Little and often”, a superb memoir by Trent Preszler. His attention to grief was, of course, personal, yet so universal. Having lost and found several loved ones in recent years, I have fully embraced each chapter. —Patricia Rohrer, Mattituck, NY

  • “I fell in love with the podcast “We can do difficult things” with Glennon Doyle, Amanda Doyle and Abby Wambach. I listened in the car while I went shopping and events. —Cindy Wilson, Santa Fe, New Mexico

  • “Best book: “The Lincoln Highway”. Amor Towles, a champion of words, made me savor his complex character and the development of his plot. I suspect I am not alone. —Bobbi Zehner, Madison, Wisconsin.

  • “A six-part series that has received little attention is a series that I highly recommend: CNN’s “Lincoln: Divided We Stand”. It’s really captivating! —Eve Thorson, Maine

  • “Study with Miss Bishop”, by Dana Gioia. I was so impressed with Gioia’s narrative style and her effortless narration of the literary figures who influenced her. —Gail Obenreder, Wilmington, Del.
