** We have survived wedding number one. All went well. It was a crazy party. The behind the scenes were chaotic, but those that came said it was tons of fun so that's what I'm going with! My son and his new wife are currently in Peru where she is from, visiting her extended family. I'm sure it's being the grandest of adventures. Two months until wedding number two!
** So I finally gave in and started watching The Walking Dead. Someone said "best character development in a show... EVER" so that did it. I had to see if I agree. Well, I'm not sure about the EVER part, but I AM sure, it's pretty dang good... the characters and the emotion. I was nervous for the violence, but I seem to be handling it okay. Though I was just now watching and had to hide my eyes and moan. Oh. My. Word. At this point I'm just a couple episodes shy of finishing season two. So far, I love Glenn.
** We also celebrated a birthday at our house this week. My baby is now 15. Is that crazy or what? She got Divergent for her birthday. I guess she's truly old enough for all those crazy awesome YA books now! We are looking forward to the movie. I hope it's good.
** So many good books out this month! I bought two of them today by a couple of my favorite local authors. Words of Radiance (the second after The Way of Kings) by Brandon Sanderson and Ruins (the third in the Partials series) by Dan Wells. I am so excited to read these books! I hope I find time to read them soon! I have so many things I'm trying to read. So many.
** Still trying to write, to fix my terrible Nano story. My terrible story that I somehow love. And the most frustrating thing I'm finding now is that I can hear/see/envision this story in my head but I can't get it out in words. I really hope this comes with practice and that is just doesn't mean I totally can't do this.
** I had more thoughts and now I can't remember them.
** My house will never be clean again, I fear.
** It snowed yesterday. It's sunny today.
** We have a new book club schedule! Almost!
** I've been fascinated lately with wedding traditions and the waxing and waning of certain ones thereof. And who started these traditions in the first place? I may need to research.
** I started reading Destroy Me last night. Warner.. one of the most fascinating characters ever thought up!
** People, I want to go somewhere so bad. The wanderlust has kicked in. And I just don't see it happening in any sort of near future.
** What new music have you been fascinated with these days? I'm loving that Happy song. I need a new obsession regarding music. None of the American Idols are standing out to me, though I haven't really been watching.
** Jenni Elyse is planning a read along of The Lord of the Rings this summer. I hope to participate, if even a little bit. If you haven't read it yet, you should join us! Because, seriously, it's a really great story! :)
I guess that's all for my random spill of the day. What thoughts are you all thinking today?
