Hey everyone! It seems like it's been awhile since I listed my random life happening thoughts. Right? Has it? Well, I think so anyway, so here's a little report for you, because I know you've been wondering.
** First of all, we had a wonderful fun time at my house on Friday night watching the whole of the Colin Firth/BBC production of Pride and Prejudice. It was a special book club event which started when we realized that Jenni Elyse, who read P and P for the first time this summer, had never seen the movie either. So, several of us got together and watched the whole thing together, while eating "p" treats (popcorn, peanut m and m's, pumpkin pie, pears, pineapple and... pizza of course!) It was great fun, and something that I've actually been wanting to do for a long long time, so I had blast finally making it happen. Last summer we did the same thing with Middlemarch. Do I see a tradition starting?
** Last week the family escaped to our annual mountain retreat. One day it rained, and one day it was nice and sunny. And oh so cool.... in fact I would even say cold! But, I love it up there. I shared pictures on Instagram, but for those of you who missed that, here's a couple:
** There's so much bookish stuff going on both IRL and online these next two months that I may just think I've died and gone to heaven! Here's to BBAW, Bloggiesta, RIP, Banned Books, Orem Reads, many author appearances, book launches and book club! I love you all! :)
** Movies and TV: I watched a few episodes of Teen Wolf, and that's lots of fun. I've watched a few episodes of Buffy season three, and that's lots of fun. I watched RED last night, (that latest Bruce Willis movie) and I was too tired to get the plot. I watched all of Falling Skies this summer and that's lots of fun. I can't wait for Vampire Diaries to start up again. Hmmm... I guess that's about it on that front. Boring. What new shows this fall should I add to my watch list? Anything?
** I finished the curtains for my bedroom last week... to go with the new carpet. Now all we need is to get some furniture! :)
** I made some bookish tshirts with my sister and daughter yesterday. This is something I've been wanting to do for a long time, and it was fun to finally actually do it.
** I made a dinner today with my daughter for a school project, using only foods that the old world had, before Columbus came to the new world and introduced new foods to the old world. Did that even make sense? Anyway, we realized that we wouldn't be happy without catsup (tomatoes are from the new world) or Ranch dressing (which has sugar which was banned from our ingredient list!)
** Oh, and here's a couple of new books I bought! I hope to even read them!
** Okay, I know there was more I wanted to report on because there's been a TON of stuff happening around here, but I forgot them all. What is new with you all?
