Since reading is a struggle this week, I finally did a few things for the Pin It and Do It Challenge hosted by Trish. Take a look!
These are Lemon Brownies found on The Girl Who Ate Everything. Easy and quite good.
A couple of crochet coasters from Lulu Loves. These were quick and easy.
This tiny lobster from Maggie Menzel was going fine until the claws. I had to wing it.
So that’s 3 Pins Did!
My husband and I watched The Hunger Games together last night. He didn’t know much about it. I remember when it was in theatres he saw an ad for it and said to me, “What the hell is that about it?” Kinda refreshing. So he enjoyed it. I thought it was well done. Katniss is not near as annoying when I’m not in her head. Jennifer Lawrence was beautiful (and not fat! What is wrong with people?!) And Rue, heartbreaking. The little girl who played her is adorable. I loved Lenny Kravitz as Cinna- come on; it’s Lenny Kravitz! I wasn’t sold on Peeta until the end. Hope the next one is just as good. Those are my very random thoughts about it.
So, other than that I’ve been listening to a lot of music. I go through spurts where I play the hell out of something until I can’t stand it anymore. This week it’s Grace Potter and the Nocturnals album The Lion The Beast The Beat and random songs from Tegan and Sara.
This is Never Go Back from Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. It’s a little weird- sort of Where the Wild Things Are- but I love the song.
Here's Northshore from Tegan and Sara, a song you can rock out to.
Finally, some bookish thoughts. I received Miss Buncle’s Book in the mail this past week. I requested it but it was one of those things where I didn’t know if I was going to get it or not. I was this close to buying it.
And have you heard! The Estella Society has begun. Go check it out.
That was this week for me. What did you do?
