Getting warm again [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll have a raspberry lemonade, please!

Back up to 85-90 degrees here in sunny Los Angeles. What's that mean for me? Movies, and *in theaters* with A/C. Just got back from seeing The Florida Project, which I highly recommend to all once it expands out of NY/LA in coming weeks. Willem Dafoe is quite wonderful, and the children in it are wondrous. Gonna check out Blade Runner 2049 tomorrow.

I'd love a Crafts and Creations thread! Can't say that I'll be very contributory for the most part, since most of my creations are various kinds of drabble that I'm bad at sharing with other people. But I'd love to see what everyone else has to share! Who knows, maybe I'll eventually jump in too.

A former co-worker is hosting a "house breaking" party tonight. I think it's the same as a house warming party, but I guess I'll be ready for action if/when the sledgehammers come out. Angelic Tomorrow I'm grabbing cinnamon rolls (yup, vegan!) with a colleague at another company we talk to all day during the week. Excited for those, mmm.

Still haven't figured out if this trip is happening over winter break. Then again, it'd be out of character for me to have resolved that quickly...Cool

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Join us every weekend in the Hobbit movie forum for this week's CHOW (Chapter of the Week) discussion!

Sounds like a fun sale! [In reply to] Can't Post


That trip sounds fabulous! I love finding books on places I plan to visit... great prep :D

And I'm afraid I'd be lost in a sale like that... *twitch* My kind of day!

I hope you've had a wonderful weekend, m'dear!

The closer you get to a deadline [In reply to] Can't Post


the more dramatic the decision!! At least that's how it works out for me ;) You're still at the planning stage, which is so fun because all of your options are still wide open!

MOVIES! I really need to get out to more of those. *sigh*

I love the idea of the Craft and Creations. I've been collecting pebbles, stones and rocks for over 20 years during my country-road walks with plans to building little houses, wells, lighthouses, birdhouses and the like. This would definitely give me inspriration to get started ;)

I hope you have a great weekend!

Sooo late here... [In reply to] Can't Post

but better late than never! I am not safe let out near second-hand book sales, good job it wasn't in my neighbourhood. A Crafts and Creations thread would be a treat; it would be interesting to share ideas and find out what other members are doing.

I spent last weekend in Switzerland staying near Geneva, admiring wonderful autumn colours and a distant chain of mountains from my cousin's chalet, some of which were reminiscent of Caradhras. The balcony view ranged from Les Dents Du Midi to Mont Blanc. Impressive!

My kitchen is almost finished now, all functioning and just awaiting the flooring. I will be heartily glad to be able to put everything back where it should be.

Cheers, folks!

('If I were a carpenter'... love that song. I had a bit of a crush (unrequited!) on a man years ago who was good with wood and making things; I used to think of that song when I thought of him. *sigh*)

If I could start over [In reply to] Can't Post


I'd love to be a carpenter / construction person. The thought of being able to build a house is so appealing! The movie "The Passengers" has its main character (Chris Pratt) who is an important import to the new world he's heading to because he can (paraphrasing) "Build you a house and live there with you."

I"m glad you had such a great adventure! But being able to put your home in order and start living there normally again is so wonderful!

Hang in there!
