This past week was gorgeous. After all that rain, we were treated to warm days and blue skies. Our hills are so green! I haven’t seen hills this green in a very long time.
At the moment, I am downing a much-needed cup of coffee. I am really craving a bagel but gluten-free bagels are like bricks and should be avoided at all costs. So, here I sit, bagel-less.
My daughter DID get a callback last week for Shrek. She tried out for Teen Fiona, The Ugly Duckling, Dorothy and Elf. She got called back for The Ugly Duckling. I know there are lots of fairy tale roles in the show and I am not familiar with what each of them do but that is what she got called back for and apparently that is what she wanted. I thought she wanted Teen Fiona but she is more excited about this. The final cast list posts late Tuesday.
This weekend my small group is doing a prayer experience. I’ve never participated in one but we will do it Saturday morning and then have brunch!
I am reading The Lonely Hearts Hotel and Ulysses. I am making progress in both. My motivation has increased because I’ve seen all these fabulous books I want to read so I need to get Ulysses read. It’s a book that baffles yet amuses. I’m not sure I will ever be able to explain part two but hey, pretty soon I will be able to mark it off my list and wear that badge of honor with pride.
The same stuff. Bates Motel is in all-out crazy mode. So, so good.
The Walking Dead is still simmering along but I hope it picks up soon. I’m beginning to think that killing off a main character HAS affected its ratings because it doesn’t seem to be doing so well and people have lost interest. Or, so it seems.
I’m in one of those moods where nothing sounds good. Nothing. After viewing Wil Wheaton’s food posts on Instagram, I’m beginning to think I need to try one of those mail order meal services but because of my food allergies, I hesitate. He’s been cooking up some amazing things though.
I just stumbled upon the online cookbook for Blue Apron. I may try it out this way first. I had to provide my email address for their weekly recipe mailing but all of their recipes look pretty good so I don’t mind. I need some inspiration.
Books. I know! So obvious. The other day, I saw a book list that reminded me of my junior high reading days. The days where I spent hours at the library, holed up in a little reading cube, flipping the pages of Rebecca or Jamaica Inn. Those were the days. I want to read like that again!
What’s a favorite reading memory from your past?
