Watching: I started watching Vampire Diaries, and well, now, I'm hooked. I have always loved the darker side, starting with Interview with a Vampire. When that movie came out, I was much to young to read, and enjoy, Anne Rice. However, by the time I started reading Ms. Rice, my love of the occult was real. I do enjoy a good vampire novel, but I secretly alway wanted to have magical abilities. When I was younger, I desperately wanted to be able to cast spells and I knew I had a connection with animals that was full of love. I liked to pretend that I had the ability to do anything and feared that my parents would find out that I wanted some sort of skills in magic. I grew up in a very conservative christian household, that did not support that type of imagination. I remember even getting the hobbit taken away from me. (My parent supporting reading, to the maximum degree, just not magical books) In school, when we started learning about the Salem Witch Trial, and really just anything to do with something outside of my current faith, I was intrigued. Thus began my love affair with Mr. Rice and her magical world.
Working On: Getting my house ready for the changing seasons. There is plenty of stuff to do. Turn over my flower beds, seed the yards, paint outside trim, bring in my plant, plant bulbs for the spring, Fall Clean my house (like spring cleaning, just during fall). See the list is ever growing.
Thinking About: how fast this year has gone by. Does anyone else think that 2012 has blown by? It is almost the last quarter of the year! I hated how grown ups would always say that they older you get, the faster time goes by, but it is honestly the truth. I remember thinking that summer break would NEVER come, or dying for Christmas to get here, but, anymore, it seems like those things come and go in a blink of an eye.
Anticipating: this weekend! I love labor day weekend because we always attend a local car show, and just spend time with our friends! The perfect way to celebrate the end of summer
Wishing: pumpkin spice would just get here already!
Loving: all the alkaline trio albums. I haven't listened to them in years, but now am listening to the daily. Forgot how much I liked them.
