Whatnot – 09/28/22

Cormac McCarthy books.Hello, friends. How are you? I am totally getting into the idea of Autumn even though it’s still over 100 here. This past weekend I went looking for the perfect fall candle but did not find it. All the candles this year smell very artificial. What is your favorite candle brand? Mine is Capri Blue but I burn through them pretty fast and they are pricey.

I’ve received many buzzy books lately. Those two above are the newest from Cormac McCarthy. It’s hard to get through so many buzzy books when you also want to linger in them for a really long time. Today I brought my Kindle to work so I can put a dent in some of my review reading. If alone, I can read quite a bit over lunch.

Are you a Hocus Pocus fan? When I first saw  it years ago I didn’t get the hype. But now, I am totally into it and it really feels like fall when I watch it. I believe Hocus Pocus 2 is out this weekend so I must plan a re-watch before then. I think it’s sweet that all the main actors returned for it.

I am headed into fall fully boosted with the new vaccine and tacked on my flu shot for good measure. I do not need the creeping crud of any variety, especially since we will be traveling before Thanksgiving.

Tonight, after work, I am going to sit down and plan an event that I’ve been thinking about. These days, if I am not very intentional with my planning then it doesn’t happen.

That’s really all I have. If I can get a review written I will schedule it for later this week. Take care!

  1. Sounds like you do have some good plans going on. I’m anticipating Hocus Pocus 2, and so is my daughter. I have been reading but slower than I had been in recent weeks. I blame the need to find volunteer activities my daughter can do for her student-service learning hours. She’s not old enough for many of them. Why do they need to start doing them in 6th grade, then? LOL

    1. Our younger students ask their school for service projects like repainting poles or the lines on the playground and then they sign off on their hours.

  2. I don’t burn candles very often, but my daughter has given me a few from Nest, which are very nice.

    I can’t believe you are still in triple digits! Ugh. Hope a cold front moves in soon.

    I plan to get my booster and flu shot once we return from our road trip. We’ve been very lucky to escape Covid and I don’t want to get it during the holidays (or ever!).

  3. I don’t use scented candles much anymore (unless I burn something while cooking and I still have a few Yankee Candle jars around – I like the earthy, woodsy scents.

    Looks like you have some good books coming up. I just read a 5 star book by Allen Eskens – Forsaken Country (no review yet) and am trying to finish a memoir as well as Fellowship Point (a chunkster.)

    Hope the coming weekend is a good one for you.

  4. I love candles, esspecially the Wood Wicks, but I’ve been burning incense since I was a teenager and am still burning it.

    I’ve been a huge Hocus Pocus fan since it was released in ’93 and have watched it many times. Hocus Pocus 2 releases tomorrow. The preview looks so good, I’m so excited!

    I have all all my shots except for the 3rd booster. I’m waiting for my work to let me know it’s time.

  5. I saw that there is a Hocus Pocus 2 and am ashamed to say I never watched the first one. Maybe my daughter and I should do that together.

    I also like the capri blue candles.

    1. It took me years to see the first movie and my first reaction was, it’s cute. But now it’s part of my Halloween viewing every year. It definitely grew on me.
