Outside my window: Dark on this Saturday night.
I am listening to: The TV is on behind me, and it's some Disney Channel show, so very irritating. The thing that drives me the most nuts about those shows? The laugh track. It so awful! I hate it.
Song of the week: I can't remember listening to much music this week. A lot of 80s Pandora stations I think, while I worked around doing stuff. I can't even remember. Boring music week around here.
TV Talk: A new Survivor started. But a bunch of snobby people this go around? But the twist? Men vs. Women? On the same beach? It's going to add a lot of new elements to the show I think. Interesting. I felt bad for that girl who looked exactly like Snow White on Once Upon a Time. How would it be to make it to Survivor and break your wrist at the first challenge? Bummer dude.
Books Finished: I started and finished Atonement! AND.... I finished Inheritance today! I'm so very excited! Wow, I can do reviews this week!
Books started: I didn't start anything else new.
Books currently reading: Finnikin of the Rock and Overbite, oh and Path of Daggers... still. Maybe I'll try to finish THAT one this week!
Books I'm anxious to read: I just bought Midnight in Austenland, so that's one. Plus all the books I got last week at LTUE, oh, and The Savage Grace is at the top of the list now.
I am thinking: that I am really quite tired at the moment and would love to go to bed and sleep forever. Or least until morning.
I am grateful for: kitties and how much joy they bring us, even when they drive us crazy at the same time.
What I learned this week: that I'm going to be taking over and helping with a popular blog event! I'm so excited! More to come soon when we work out the details, so do stay tuned!
Around the house: nothing to report.
Recipe of the week: Ah, Butterfinger Blondies found on Pinterest. They were yummy!
Favorite things of the week: book club on Thursday, and talking to Shannon Hale today. Oh and the fact that I figured out how to make my Zumba game work properly, so now it can tell I'm there and doing stuff and it shoots off fireworks and everything!
Family matters: well, as you know, the biggest family matter this week was our poor kitty. How long will it take to get used to her not being here? A long time I'm guessing. She followed me around and was in my face so much. It's just weird now, you know? Even if that wouldn't have been part of our week this week, it was still a hard one. Everyone else had tests, and presentations at school and there was stress all around. Like I said, glad it's over. Oh, and add to that, I wanted to have a little excursion on this holiday weekend, but no one would cooperate, including the weather. So not fair!
Letter Writing Month: still going! I sent out a few birthday cards this week (I have eight siblings as you may or may not remember,and four of them have birthdays this month. I've always thought that was interesting.) I also mailed a couple or three Valentines, and one or two post cards and a fan letter to MZ. THAT one was fun to write! But, as I mentioned in this quick post, I need more international (including Canada) addresses to write to. Email me!
Things I hope to accomplish in the coming week: Dude, I read over the big long list of things I hoped to accomplish last week... and wow, I nearly did it all! Are you not impressed? Only, having a sick and dying cat was SO not on the list. I'm still blown away that that actually happened, after expecting it for so long and suddenly, it's over. Oh, but this week? Let's see what I need to do....a church young women event that I have a bit of a part in, another dentist visit (ugh), sleep in on Monday, more letters to write, and.... I don't know what else. It's going to be an easier week, I just know it.
