Weekends are like big squishy blankets to me. I love them. Even ones where I have stuff to get done.
On Saturday, I took my brand new car back to the dealer because of a recall notice! I know it happens. They gave me a loaner because they thought they’d have to keep it for a few days but I got it back the same day!
I just got home from volunteering at the church. It was a super fun night. We had a speaker from the Thirst Project talk to our group of middle-schoolers. This guy, his name is Evan, was super energetic and passionate about his work. I think the students were really impressed. I know I was.
I seriously just sucked down a bowl of stew because I need some time to get my stuff ready for tomorrow. I need to clear my evening for TV later. More on that below.
Not too much going on. I need to figure out my Halloween costume. I know what I am doing but I need some items to make it happen. Besides that, a book tour and helping The Teen (formerly, The Girl) study for her math test, it’s going to be a nice relaxing week.
I am reading Fractured for a book tour later this week. I really need to get those pages read. I fell a little behind with my reading because I was basically a slug yesterday and in a foul mood. You know how it is. You just wake up in a mood and can’t shake it? Well, that was me yesterday.
I’ve been watching American Horror Story: Roanoke and it’s a total mind trip. Brilliant, really. I don’t know how those actors keep track of who they are playing from episode to episode. It’s like they all come in, pull a character out of a hat and then run with it. It makes for REALLY good TV.
You all know what’s on tonight, right? Yes! The Walking Dead returns and it’s supposed to be a real mess of an opener. Lots of sadness is predicted for tonight. Many say two beloved characters will get killed off. Only time will tell. I will be avoiding social media like the plague until it airs.
I made stew. It rained a little here and even though it was 77 degrees, it felt like fall so I made stew. I have lunch for days.
Happy people. I’ve found that it really helps to surround yourself with happy people. Ones who have it all together. Their happiness rubs off on me. I started the day kind of crabby but right now, I feel great and I am thanking the happy, smiling people that I come in contact with daily.
This is coming to you late but I hope you guys had a great weekend. I know a lot of read-a-thoners are sleepy right now.
