The much looked for post on magic in The Lord of the Rings, Narnia, and Harry Potter. I would have wished to post it today, but I haven't fully finished researching and writing it all out. Life has been very busy this last week/weekend, and I haven't been able to dedicate the time I would have wished to this post.
You probably already know from previous posts that I'm in the middle of Nicholas Nickleby. And then, in addition to that, I'm also currently reading (for the second time) Kingdom's Dawn by Chuck Black. Highly recommend the Kingdom Series and the Knights of Arrethtrae Series to anyone! They are a short read, but definitely worth it!
To my siblings talk on the phone with our delightful CBCs. If, by now, you don't know what CBC stands for, I am horribly ashamed of you.... okay, not really, but go here to find out more. :)
Pride and Prejudice 1995!! I believe a "SQUEEEEE" would be appropriate here! :D We recently watched the 2005 version, and laughed heartily at it, but then felt the need to redeem it with the REAL version. No offence to K.K. and M.M. fans...
Not much. I'm supposed to be sewing a bunch of new skirts for my sisters from parts of old pants, skirts, and whatever else that had fabric that suited their fancies, but so far, I've only finished one of them. Perhaps when more are done, my sisters may indulge in a photo shoot so you may see some of the skirts. :)
At my brother play chess with himself. If you've ever read the book My American Adventure by Amy Burritt, it's very much like her brother playing Monopoly against himself... how can he ever lose?
That I am enjoying my hair up in a bun more and more. Because I have long, thick hair (which has been likened to Rapunzel's hair), it gets really hot and heavy in the summer laying against my back, so recently I've been trying to put it up. My "updos" aren't anything fancy, but they do the job. If you want to see almost authentic Jane Austen dos, my sister Beth Grace is an expert when it comes to hair. I'll have to make her do a photo shoot with fun hairstyles after the photo shoot with the skirts...
The pain in my stubbed toe. I'm not trying to invoke sympathy in my readers here, but it was just something that was on my mind...
Another epic win visit with our CBCs in August!!! Can't wait!!
That it was August already... why? See the answer above.
THE AIR CONDITIONER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Need I say more? I love summer, but I've never been a huge fan of extreme heat (I prefer the cold... please don't throw tomatoes at me). Here where I live under the maple tree it's been over 80 for almost two weeks now, and we've had a few days topping 100. Especially since I'm asthmatic, I really, REALLY appreciate the cool air!
