Watching: This week I watched the second to last episode of Parenthood. Next week, it's all over. So sad! I will post my feelings on this show then. Let's see, I'm also trying to catch up with The 100, currently on episode ten or so in the first season. Watching the random Gilmore Girls episodes too, when someone else happens to have them on. Pondering getting myself hooked on Friends, as I never watched this when it was popular on TV. What do you think? Looking forward to The Walking Dead starting up again, two weeks from tonight. Oh, and watching Downton Abbey too!
Reading: Only 18% left in my re-re-read of North and South. Man, stuff is suddenly happening fast! I'm loving the re-read of this book so so much. Its been a fun fabulous time, this read along we've been doing. One week, and then that adventure is over. I started Landline this week, and also Shutter. I finished The Elite, which was, you know, fluff and stuff.
Writing: I went to the writing group at the library this week and was part of the beginning of a new writer's association they are calling TUAA. They have big things planned! (I'll tell you more about it when they actually have a website up to link to.) Also, a small group read chapter two of what I'm calling the farm book (I've thought of the title Indian Summer, but it's really so cliche!) and they liked it! They really really liked it! I've been thinking nonstop about these characters, but haven't actually written much. I'm floundering big time. Currently, I'm trying to make a list of 100 things I know about my characters (well, the two main ones) and I'm at 55. Today, I hope to think of more stuff! What a fun and crazy creative endeavor!
Making: I started making little bags for a humanitarian project at church. I made some banana chocolate chip cookies. I made progress in de-cluttering by cleaning out some cupboards and also boxing up junk in an abandoned kid bedroom. Oh, I made beignets for book club last week. And I made Cafe Rio pork for dinner this past week too.
Feeling: Hungry at the moment. A little tired too, but I just had a pretty good nap. I felt a little dumpy this past week thinking I might be getting something, but so far, it hasn't happened. Yeah for that!
Planning: To go to Comic Con FanX this coming weekend! Woot! I hope to see the original Karate Kid guy, Princess Leia, Draco Malfoy, Stefan from TVD, and Glen from TWD... AND the 11th Doctor along with Rose and Amy. Now that is going to be COOL! You can bet you'll be hearing more about all that. And I'll Instagram tons.
Misc. Random Tidbits:
- the kitten lost a baby tooth and that was weird to watch.
- the youngest kid got her driver's permit
- the two oldest (married) kids are moving, again.
- I saw a play last night called "Is He Dead?" It was very silly.
- I want to see The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything
- I want to see Jupiter Ascending
- I can't seem to fit in Zumba
- the brakes on the car died, so we fixed them. The furnace wanted to die too, but it fixed itself, I think
- I bought new books this week, dang it.
