Monthly Challenge

Monthly Challenge

This month, the monthly challenge was to find and read a good book, and I can honestly say there is nothing more satisfying then obnoxiously cheeecking it off my imaginary mental-list (we all do this, dont pretend you don’t). The book I chose to read was Miss Peregrine’s home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I wont get into a in depth critique of it, but i will say that it was a fast-paced read, the story line is X-Men meets time travel in an almost Tim Burton-esque setting Overall I enjoyed it. Interested? You can buy it on amazon for a lot less then i did at indigo’s. Ah well..

Happy sunday y’all.

Last Week of Summer

This week the Sunday thoughts are a walkthrough of the week I’ve had.

I’m a fall person. I love big sweaters, and  pumpkin spice latte’s, but most of all- I love that crisp, almost tangible  fall smell.  I know I’m getting ahead of myself- its only late summer! But school begins next week, and I’m more than ready to leave the muggy, suburban summer behind me. To conclude this summer I took a couple days off work, packed my toothbrush and enormous bottle of bug spray and headed ” homehome”- up north to soak up some late summer nature.

I woke up at a ungodly hour to go for a walk ( the woods take on a Narnia-like quality early in the morning) I snapped a few pictures, encountered several deer, and trespassed brazenly. Worth it? Absolutely.

Meet Riley, My mums dog, who has on more than one walk abandoned me to the mercy of our coyote ridden forest to fend for myself. This dog has absolutely no loyalty, but possesses a certain shameless quality that I respect and have even grown to admire.

I decided to re-watch a old favorite His Girl Friday  to revel in the snappy dialog and swoon at Cary Grant

You get the swooning right?

The song of this week has to be Earth Island By the Crystal Fighters

Sooo that’s some Sunday thoughts! Here’s the inspiration

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take,

all the books I want to read, and all the friends i want to see
