MUAW HA HA! (weak attempt at an evil, scary Halloween laugh...don't worry, I have a full week to perfect it.)
*First of all, go Texas Rangers! In case you weren't already aware, this is the first time in franchise history that the team has made it to the World Series...it's post season history in the making. As a hard core Red Sox fan, the game in my mind, ended on a perfect note. And because my team is out of it and I have several friends and family in the Texas area, I'm backing them! GO RANGERS! (plus you just have to love Hamilton, right?)
*Apparently when I revise/edit it's important to print it out occasionally to see just how bad things are. Why don't they look like that on my computer screen? Chapters 1 and 2 have now been revised like, 35 times. I just can't get them to flow right. This whole paper vs electronic thing has me wondering about E-readers. I wonder if there's a difference in the way we read and comprehend them in comparison with real books.
*I made Asparagus Soup for the first time last weekend and came to this conclusion: Buy it canned. Less work and tastes just as good. It seems wrong to have to cook something, put it in a food processor, and then cook it again. Don't get me wrong, it was tasty, but just not worth the two hours of effort. See below picture for the prettiness of my effort (and because all that time seriously needs to be documented). Feel free to comment on how glorious it looks.
Okay, I admit it, it looks a little like pea soup of the Exorcist variety.
*I'm totally multi-tasking right now and watching the Vikings vs Packer game. Good game, but a lot of strange calls and things.
*I have a surprise date night planned with the hubs this Friday (plans are a surprise anyway) and I'm like a giddy teenager! I'm horrible at keeping secrets, so I'm actually quite proud of myself! Only a few more days!
*I'm addicted to the Book Thief. Not my usual kind of book, but it's really good.
*Another thing I'm addicted to? Running in the crisp fall weather...absolutely lovely. The park near my house has a two mile loop around a lake and it's just peaceful.
*Anyone know a good place to buy petite sweatpants? Seriously. I have this problem every year. I'm five foot and most petite pants are still too long. It seems REALLY wrong to have to get sweatpants hemmed and I'm too old to pull off the "cut off" version I used to sport.
*Can you believe the holidays are around the corner??? What happened? And what did I do this year? And is it just me or do the stores keep putting Christmas stuff out earlier and earlier? So strange to see Christmas stuff next to the Halloween decorations. Don't get me wrong...I love Christmas, but come on!
Okay, only six minutes left in the game...gotta' run!
Have a good week everyone!
