Updates: Third Time's the Charm
Kel Wednesday, September 17, 2014It's been a fun week! Busy, but fun. Last Friday I went to an author event and got a copy of Anna and the French Kiss signed by Stephanie Perkins. Turns out we both watch way too many Hallmark movies. She said she was addicted to their Christmas movie marathons, so I had to ask whether she noticed the trend of creepy Santa Clauses. She has, and next thing you know, we're describing three or four of the movies and immediately recognizing which ones they are. It's pretty bad, but not nearly as sad as the fact that I can now recognize several Hallmark movies by one line of dialogue and/or bar of background music alone...without seeing the TV. ;)
I went to another pottery wheel workshop on Saturday, my third, and it went well! There were only four of us, so we got lots of individual instruction from the teacher. I didn't walk away completely frustrated, and I'm kind of proud of my four pieces. Pray they survive the firing, right?
Remember when I said "slowly making progress." Yes, emphasis on the "slow." It's fall, which means everything slams into you at once. This week in particular is a real doozy. I got farther into Chasing Power, which hasn't improved. I'll finish it, but this is probably a 2-star unless it seriously wows me with the remaining 35%. :(
Heads up! I'm participating in my first giveaway hop, which starts this Saturday. Make sure you check in to see my stop on the Stuck in a Good Book hop!
That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones! X-Men meets Ocean's Eleven. Need I say more? :)
