Lately...


  • While at the library yesterday, I watched a lady bring out a kitchen knife and veggies (carrots and bell peppers), begin cutting them, then crunching on them loudly while eating. (To be fair, those are not quiet veggies to eat...)
  • I've decided people-watching at the library can be quite entertaining sometimes.
  • Friends of mine are thinking to put on a play this coming Christmas, based on The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson. I read that book when I was a kid and remember loving it and now I'm feeling this intense desire to read it again!
  • I rewatched all three seasons of When Calls the Heart last weekend and have been obsessed with Jack and Elizabeth all week since.
  • I also rewatched Pride & Prejudice & Zombies and remembered all the reasons why I love that movie!
  • Per a recent convo, I've decided almost all "classics" high school students are required to read are weird and boring. Now if I'd had the chance to read Jane Austen in my high school days, I might feel a little differently... ;)
  • Also in that same convo, I learned that a dead person can't narrate a story, but a dead character can! Hence why google was no help on my first search. Humph
  • I caught up on Heather Dixon's blog posts recently and laughed and shuddered simultaneously at this one.
  • Finally put a new cd in my car this week! I'd had the same ones playing over and over for the last year. (I am not even kidding, it's really been that long.)
  • The other day I stumbled over a fanfiction about The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and it gave me all the Lizzie/Darcy feels again! I need a rewatch of that series soon.
  • I am severely behind on my blog reading! And when I say severely, I mean months-and-months-behind-severely. *hangs head in shame* I am hoping to catch up soon, fellow bloggers! Please don't think I've forgotten you completely. I really haven't!
  • I have a Christmas get together with friends coming up (yes, we purposely wait until long after Christmas to plan it, Dec and Jan just get too busy for everybody) and still need to pick out my present. Help! I have no ideas at this point in time! *cue mad scrambling at the last minute*
  • I hope you're having a delightful weekend, my lovelies! :)

  1. What a fun post today! You really captured my attention when you spoke of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever! I adore that story! Oh my goodness! That would be the perfect play! Have you ever seen the 1 hour drama based upon it. Unfortunately, it's never played on TV anymore, but thankfully I have it on DVD. I just looked it up and Amazon still has it - http://amzn.to/2mAa0CQ. It is truly a must see!

    Plus, I follow family and Christmas movies all throughout the year, so I can tell you there is a new Best Christmas Pageant Ever in development. I'm hoping it will be a TV movie, but we'll see!

    Also, loved your mention of When Calls the Heart! I love that series, too, and would never miss it! I'm so glad to hear how much you love it, too!!! :)

    Blessings to you and have fun picking out your *Christmas* present! Net

  2. People watching anywhere is great fun! I need to watch When Calls The Heart and The Lizzie Bennett Diaries.

  3. I don't think my teenage self could've even handled Jane Austen. I just didn't like to read back then and classics were the bane of my existence. They still kind of are, but I trudge through them because I want to read them. Though, I have DNFd a couple because I wasn't in the mood. Maybe, later.
