Halloween is almost here! Where does the time go? My boys are dressing up as Michael Myers and Tony Montana (Scarface). Gabe will be 12 next week and Reece will be 11 in January. I wonder how many more years they will want to do it? I dressed up until I was 16, but those were different times. Plus, I had a sister that was three years younger than me so I had to take her, right? *wink*
Listening To: Yeah, yeah...still Anna Dressed in Blood and Dracula. But Friday, I'm going to start listening to Christmas music! (head over to my Christmas blog to find out what new Christmas music is being released this year)
Joyland, Stephen King
The Curse Giver, Dora Machado (review)
Stoker's Manuscript, Royce Prouty
The Diabolist, Layton Green
City of Bones, Cassandra Clare
The Historian, Elizabeth Kostova (read-a-long)
The Curse Giver, Dora Machado
Write-a-Thon, Rochelle Melander
This House is Haunted, John Boyne
Season of the Witch, by Natasha Mostert
The Signature of All Things, Elizabeth Gilbert
Watching: I haven't broken up with any shows yet! I enjoyed Dracula on Friday, but many people I know did not like it. I'm going to give it a chance. Also, Grimm was back. Yay! My new favorite is American Horror Story: Coven. Of course, second to The Walking Dead. I'm getting ready for the Hallmark Channel's Christmas movies starting Saturday. They rock for making Christmas fanatics like me happy. On the big screen, we went to see We're the Millers at the cheap theater. It was hilarious!
Making: The Chicken Salad Casserole I made last week was really good and I also made Crock Pot Creamy Ranch Pork Chops & Potatoes. The pork chops literally fell off the bone. These two were comfort foods for sure! Tomorrow night, I'm finally making Wallace's (Unputdownables) Soon-To-Be-Famous Chili recipe. I can't wait!
Grateful for: my constant companion, Arya. She's always by my side, unlike Alice, who snubs me and only comes around when it's treat time. *frown*
Looking forward to: still NaNoWriMo! Hoping I will have everything ready. I even revamped my writing blog, Stories Inside. I really like the way it looks now. Very writerly!
