Snow! There was snow! Only a little snow but it counts.
I was so excited for the snow but, I'll admit, a little disappointed it didn't result in snow days... Oh well, you can't have everything, right? At least I got to see the white stuff this year.
Let's see... What else happened this week?
The little dude was also off school for a few days so between him being off school for three days and the snow it's been a very quick and strange week but really uneventful.
The only thing I did that wasn't day-to-day stuff was go to a friends 50th birthday party on Saturday. It was a black-tie fundraiser dinner for one of the local schools and I had so much fun dressing up and giggling away over dinner and dancing. We're such an eclectic bunch, all of us in different fields of work, different ages, coming from different places but we clicked as a little tribe and I love those ladies. The menfolk were with us too so it was amusing seeing them interact seeing as they each know the ladies but don't cross paths with each other over much.
Plus, it was a child-free evening for us all. = Win!
I read stuff! I actually started and read stuff all in the same week! Some of these books were in the same day... Actually, all but Emerald Green were started and finished in the same day.
That hasn't happened in 6 weeks or so!
Next week, I may actually finish some of those half-finished books from weeks gone by and continue to be on a roll.
As I said, I think I got my reading mojo back and binge read The Ruby Red Trilogy and thoroughly enjoyed it!
The only thing that let it down a little was the dialogue... The turn of phrase was really weird and the language really formal at times which I assume is a result of the translation more than anything else. And I guess the romance between the main characters was a little too quick and insta-lovey. If it'd been built up over a longer period of time it would have been irresistible.
But everything else I loved. I couldn't put them down!
I requested this one on a nostalgia kick as the little dude's favourite books when he was really little were by Julia Donaldson. I was so curious about this one and read it as soon as I was approved and it was absolutely wonderful.
I'm rewatching this series for the bazillionth time and loving it every bit as much as I did the first time. When they ended it at 3 seasons I wanted to howl at the moon. 😭
I also started this series this week...
I'm not much of a DC fan but was curious about this one and I'm glad I started watching for it's pretty good so far!
I love The Greatest Showman soundtrack and am not completely sold on the 're-imagined' album but this track is awesome! Different but still uplifting and full of soul. This guy can sing anything he wants to me... His voice is gorgeous! 🎵 💗
