THIS weather! All this week it’s been about 100 degrees. It’s mid-October and not one leaf has changed color, no cool breeze in the evening, nothing. We never get real fall weather but this is really pushing it. Still, we did go ahead and put the Halloween stuff up because if we wait any longer we’ll miss it! But man, I long for a cool evening, fluffy blankets, soup.
This past week was another busy week. I fear that the rest of the year may be this way. Last week I tried to catch-up on my blog reading. I was somewhat successful.
Yesterday we drove over two hours away to find housing for my mother and sister. That trip was a bit depressing and I’m not really sure what to do. I need to think a bit and I need to do it fast. I don’t like being under pressure when making decisions like that.
I spent the rest of yesterday cleaning the house, putting stuff away and basically, keeping my mind busy.
I couldn’t sleep all that well so I got up early and I am about to enjoy my first cup of coffee. Soon, we’ll head off to church. Later? Possibly more cleaning and organizing It’s what I do when I am stressed.
This week should be pretty tame. Just the normal stuff going on.
I am fully immersed into Salem’s Lot and partially into Neverwhere. I am trying to give them equal time but King is winning out. As usual.
Last Friday The Girl and I saw Pan. It’s gotten horrible reviews but we really liked it. There is one strange part where it felt like a musical but after that, it was nothing but action and visual effects and good acting by the young actor who plays Pan. Kids will enjoy it but there were plenty of adults in the theater enjoying it too. A full theater, full of kids and not one peep. There’s your review.
I sat down to watch American Horror Story – Hotel and it’s WAY out there. At times, very disturbing. But like a train wreck, you can’t look away. I think it will be a big hit but it’s definitely not for younger viewers.
Tonight, it’s all about the premier of The Walking Dead! Yes!! It’s back.
We’ll probably grab something tonight. Too hot for soup, chili, or basically anything requiring a stove or oven.
My Hub. He’s a big lug of a guy but when I get all frazzled about these housing decisions he puts it all into perspective and strips it down to the basics. On the drive back yesterday my mind was spinning and he knew exactly what to say. So grateful for that even-toned, matter-of-fact approach. I need that sometimes.
That’s it for me. What’s up with you?
