Happy Halloween!! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, I love the excitement and seeing all of the costumes and carving pumpkins – which we did last night!
And I apologize for the huge picture – WordPress is being all wonky for me today. I am not sure what is happening but it is making me crazy.
We also watched Disney’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow cartoon, a favorite of mine since childhood, and followed it up with the Tim Burton version.
Last week I wasn’t able to read much at all – the week was super busy, busier than I had anticipated. It was all good stuff but not much time. I did get far enough in one of my books (The Wolf Hour) to decide I couldn’t finish it – it was just too sad. It was so well written though, and unlike anything I have read honestly, in terms of plot. Maybe if I were in a different space it wouldn’t have bothered me, but right now was just not the time.
Tomorrow Nonfiction November kicks off and I am so excited! I have only been participating a few years, and I am not anywhere near the level of nonfiction reader that the other participants are, but every year I read more and more nonfiction, in large part due to this event.
Reading This Week:
This book caught my eye – this cover is gorgeous. The setting is at a powwow held in a high school gymnasium in Ann Arbor, MI. And I have been to that powwow! So I am looking forward to this read.
I am all scary storied out for a while. Time to get back to my regular style of reading!
Posted Last Week:
Nancy Drew, Only Murders in the Building, Locke and Key Season 2, and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow for Billy and I. We also watched a few episodes of Vera, and started the Bread Baking Experiment on Amazon. Now I want a community of women to make bread with, darn it. Wyatt is watching Let’s Go Luna, Wild Kratts, and Scout and Daisy and the Gumboot Kids. He also loves Pete the Cat and Gabby’s Dollhouse. I am also still watching the YouTuber Rachel Maksy – she makes the coolest vintage projects and dresses! It makes me wish I could sew! And have somewhere to wear actual outfits to. That is kind of the biggest bummer about homeschooling and being a SAHM – I sort of miss dressing up for work some days. Not enough to actually get all dressed up for the day though. I mainly hang around the house in my uniform of jeans and a t-shirt, no makeup, and barefoot, and most days I am super happy with that arrangement. But sometimes, yeah, I miss getting dressed up.
How about you all? Everything good in your world? Any Halloween plans?
