I am pleased to announce that I am not dead! Isn't that great? I never post this late, but I figured the theme of the week was "MIA" so I might as well stay in character. I fell completely off the grid this week. I didn't read blogs. I didn't read anything in print. I only went to Andre's ONCE! There is a myriad of explanations for my behavior.
Yard improvement project. A team of workers spreading 20 tons (yes you heard that right) of Seminole rock in my front and back yard, planting plants and installing a new fountain. Fun stuff but these guys require supervision.
The Killing. I continue to obsess. SO GOOD, OMG. I am three episodes away from the end. Nothing will continue to be done until I've finished.
Cold weather has lured me outside. By "cold" I mean 60's during the day and 40's at night. I don't sweat much in these temps. It is wonderful.
And also sick kids, the usual hellish doctor appointments, a broken security system, and a flat tire that occupied a solid afternoon. Also had a fundraiser breakfast and a book club meeting. My son turned 15. Halloween. You get my point. It was one of those weeks.
I did listen to audio, praise the Lord. I finished "The Girl with all the Gifts", but I haven't reviewed it yet. I really liked it. It sort of reminded me of "The Passage", and one of the better apocalyptic stories I've read in awhile. I have started "In the Kingdom of Ice" by Hampton Sides, a book club assignment. The audio is 14 discs long and the meeting is Wednesday so I doubt I will finish it by then, but what the heck. I haven't been to this book club in awhile because of some personality conflicts, but I'm going to give it another shot.
Today my son and I went to see "Nightcrawler" with Jake Gyllenhaal and it was absolutely amazing. It made my heart pound, it made me flinch, it made me laugh. Going to write that one up too, at some point.
Hope everyone had an awesome Sunday, and why would it not be the best when we gain an hour of time??? I always feel like I don't appreciate it enough, especially when we LOSE that hour in the spring. Did everyone sleep in this morning?
