Thursday's Top Five



(I know, it seems a lot of my posts lately have involved lists of some sort)

1- My bubs has recently "winterized" our bed adding tons of "new" (by new I mean out of the closet) blankets and making the room all cozy, you see in this giant old house we are living in well....it's freezing. Normally I am not one to have the heat on yet but I have already turned it on, and the way the vents work, the upstairs just does not seem to be warm...ever, but....THE BED, is now cozy. Truthfully it makes it even harder to leave the bedroom, but in a good way.

2- Rebecca, by Daphne du Maurier, after years and years of "meaning" to read this book, I finally am, and it is every bit as satisfying as I thought it would be, every page is filled with word candy and mood. Love it, LOVE IT!!

3- Still watching Scary Movies in November....yup, my bubs and I did not have nearly enough time to watch all the scary movies we wanted to in October so last night we curled under some blankets and watched The Descent....and um, wow......truly frightening, not just creepy but horrifying in so many ways, though really that movie should be called, "Don't ever go into caves, ever, EVER"

4- Surprises in the mail, yup yesterday during a visit to the PO I was surprised to find a large parcel waiting for me...a certain lovely woman dwelling in beautiful Northern Africa, Maryam, sent me a fashion magazine from Marrakesh, as well as some wonderful mags from Paris. I was screaming and screaming. I love getting random fashion magazines in the mail, it truly is the way to my heart.

5- I love my neighborhood!! I have alluded to it before, but really I am in love with this town, every day when we are out and about there are so many very active senior citizens that it touches my heart, they ride bikes, they walk every where, and at sometimes (well, most really) they seem to be living life far more than I am. That at once makes me sad for myself but really happy for them. So they are my inspiration this week, well, and almost every week.

so there you have it, my Thursday top five list....and now because I feel as though I have not shown any work in my blog for a while...I did add a few new collages to this post, for eye candy.

hope you have a fabby day.

Love Rebecca! I read that book years ago, but I might have to read it again now. Pretty sure I have it here somewhere. I've seen the old movie as well.

I'm so glad you love your new town.

I can only sit in my cube quivering as I remember watching that movie...alone...in the dark...it scared the poop out of me. (i wish I could say literally...wouldn't that be funnier?)

Hearing that you received something from South Africa makes me want to be MUCH more globally conscious. Also, the guy doing the Nonviolent Communication session last night was from England, lives in Germany and was headed to Sri Lanka. I need global exposure.

Rebecca was an incredible novel.
The movie isn't exactly scary, but it could def. be described as chilling!!

The Descent was one of the scariest movies I have ever seen. I don't need to watch another one after it.

And yay for cozy beds and blankets, I love blankets.
