Listening To: The last of my cds being put onto the server. Lots and lots of music to enjoy. Now I can get rid of another huge box. Plus, I sold some of my cds to Amazon.
Book finished: Liberty Defined; King Lear; The Maiden’s Hand — Slower week, but good page count. 950 for the week.
Reading: At the Queen’s Summons
On the Nightstand: Shakespeare, HP7, and nonfiction from the library
Making Lists: Bloggiesta to do list. I am finally joining in the fun this year. I have a growing list (14 at last count) of housekeeping projects for my blog and books.
Around the house: I was struck down with a nasty cold this weekend, so not much is getting down. I had wanted to clean and organize, but no energy. Instead J and I watched a ton of West Wing.
On the Web: Remember the FrightFall Readathon is coming October 1-7. Come and join the fun!
Crafting: During the week I caught up my scrapbooking just a bit more. We’re to Spring 2012! I need to print our spring break photos before I can complete the next phase. I’m also debating about whether to put those in a separate album combined with my westward journey photos. Hmmm… decisions decisions.
I had signed up for a meet and greet card class today, but with my cold I decided to cancel. I think the other ladies will appreciate not getting infected today. Thankfully I have a class the week after next to look forward to.
Watching: J got me hooked on The West Wing. We’re already in season 2. I caught up on The Daily Show and Colbert Report’s coverage of the RNC and DNC. I am losing hope for our country… I’ve also been watching Grimm, trying to catch up to the current season. I like the play on old fairy tales. Finally, we acquired the DW season premiere, Asylum of the Daleks. OMG that was good. And now we have a whole season to look forward too…
Wondering: If Oswin Oswald will show up again, or just the actress playing a new character for the Christmas special? (Doctor Who question)
Shopping Scores: While J was in Seattle meeting with Microsoft, I decided to go and browse at Barnes and Noble. I’ve been trying to avoid bookstores, because I always go a little nuts. I somehow managed to walk out with only one book, Sadie Walker is Stranded, that I have been craving for awhile. It will make an appearance during the FrightFall Readathon as I am doing an all zombie readathon.
I also embarked on the adventure that is buying plane tickets this week. After perusing the sites, I found a flight for $570 flying San Jose to Fort Wayne. Many other airlines were charging $740+. I got excited, whipped out the credit card, entered tons of info, and hit buy. Nothing happened. An error message popped up saying they couldn’t complete my order. Bummer! I happened to be on Travelocity and hit the “flexible dates” button just to see what happened. If I flew out of Fort Wayne a day later, I could get a ticket for $400. Sold! Thankfully this time it worked and I now have my tickets for Thanksgiving. I’ll be there a few days before and a fews days after the boys get out of school, so I can help with the flower shop or hang out with old friends.
Project: I’m getting closer and closer to completing my Christmas cards. Now I’ve started to think about gifts…
