Last night, J left for Romania for a two week work trip. (Part of the engineering team is in Cludj.) So I am all alone for two weeks with not much to do. I plan on reading a ton, applying for more jobs, do some crafting, and possibly go in to the city for a visit/exploring… I’m really going to miss him.
Listening To: Rediscovering some cds. My current faves are Relient K and Flogging Molly. And I snatched the new Lumineers record from iTunes. I love it!
Book finished: Slanted and Enchanted, Ten Discoveries that Rewrote History, On Target, Elisabeth Vigee Le Brun
Reading: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
On the Nightstand: Historical fiction and fairy tales… and zombies are lurking in the back for the FrightFall Readathon October 1-7. And I’m heading off to the library book sale to see if I can find any elusive titles and possibly gifts for the boys… It’s Sunday which means $5 bag sale!
Making Lists: Bloggiesta to dos and craft projects. My Bloggiesta list is currently static (thank goodness). I’m just waiting for Friday to dive in and get some things dones.
Around the house: After our fridge temper tantrums this past month, I really didn’t need anything else to go wrong. But of course it did. We woke up on Sunday to a a dripping ceiling… A bubble was forming in the ceiling. I contacted the office who said they would page maintenance. The guy from upstairs informed me that his sink was leaking, but he hadn’t noticed until now. I assume they fixed his sink as our ceiling stopped dripping. But they never came to fix our ceiling, so we have a bubble that I hope isn’t filled with water. Argh! Just one more problem. Thank goodness we don’t own this place.
From the kitchen: I’ve been so lazy this week. I made a giant pot of spaghetti and ate it most nights for dinner. Blah! I did make some scrumptious brownies for a pot luck last night. According to the people at the party, they were a hit!
On the Web: I’m trying to get my GoogleReader unread down to 0, but it just keeps creeping back up. And I don’t even read every post. A clean-out of subscriptions is on the Bloggiesta list.
Crafting: I had two (yes two!) card classes this week. Fun times! Monday’s class was all about fall cards.
Saturday’s class was Christmas cards. I especially love the gift card holder idea. I will have to keep that in mind for the holiday season…
Plus, I finished the spring break family album. That was a ton of pages. Now I need to order a few more prints to start the boys’ spring break pages. My next event/project is our move west. We drove from Nebraska to California stopping in some crazy places. Of course I have a ton of pictures to help me remember.
Watching: We finished Stargate Atlantis (really going to miss that show) and started Stargate Universe. The change in tone is really something to get used to. Universe is much darker and serious. J says that they tried to copy Battlestar Galactica… (I haven’t watched that one yet, so don’t know). So far, I’m liking it, it’s just a different show than the other two Stargate series. I also plowed through Gossip Girl S3 and started S4. It’s my guilty pleasure show. Unfortunately Netflix or the library doesn’t have S5. I may have to wait.
Shopping Scores: My Amazon music trade-in went through so I now have a credit in my account. I’m resisting the urge to spend to all now. But I did buy a copy of Blackout by Mira Grant so I can read the Newsflesh trilogy during the FrightFall Readathon.
Project: Scrapbooking? I really getting back into the rhythm and want to get mostly up to date. One season behind is my goal. I’m almost there…
