Outside my window: Wow, what a perfect day it was today! Right now it's dark on a Saturday night, but clear and clean and beautiful. We need more days like today.
I'm listening to: the Lawrence Welk show! Yes! The grandparents LOVE this stuff!
Song of the week: The Great Commandment by Camouflage. They sound a lot like Depeche Mode you know, but different.
TV Talk: Oh my word Vampire Diaries was intense this week. Stefan is a new man. Scary dude. Survivor was gross with pig eating. I started watching Merlin season three on Netflix. So excited! I missed these guys! And Dr. Who continues to get better and better and better.
Books I'm Reading: Still working on Under the Dome. Halfway done!
Books I finished: Red Glove by Holly Black
Books I started: Going to start any second now... Interview With a Vampire.
Books I want to start: The Night Circus, The Demon King
Books I bought this week: Blood Red Road, Silence, The Death Cure, Variant
Other bookish business: What a fun book club we had this week! Talked and talked and talked. Post to come soon! Also, it's looking more and more like I'll be doing the readathon after all. Can I still sign up?
Favorite things of the week: Driving up here to be with the grandparents, windows down, music blasting! Hanging with book bloggers and authors on Tuesday, and book club people on Thursday. Making letter sugar cookies.
Worrying about: what it means to join Pinterest. Too late. It's done. First pins I pinned? Markus Zusak, The Book Thief, Josh Groban and Wentworth Miller. Shocked? I know. Seriously, I have no clue what I'm doing.
Plans for the week: Well, we thought about going somewhere for Fall Break, but there seems to be too many other things happening. Other than that, I have no idea what else is going on.
Recipe of the week:
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sour cream
Mix it up, cut it out and bake it!
Around the house: things are actually pretty clean. It was book club week after all. I vacuumed you know. And tried to clean off the counter, but that doesn't last long at all.
Family matters: My husband became older than me this week! It won't last long though, because in only a month, I'll catch up. The 7th grader survived her first orchestra concert. She did great! College daughter caught a cold. College son flew to Arizona without mishap. Eleventh grader is not enjoying Physics.
That's it for now. It's going to be a great week! Right? Of course right.
