1.) Gilmore Girls and Ben & Jerry's -
after a long day of things around the house breaking down, the dog getting into a patch of burrs (and subsequently being covered), spending time at the laundromat, and using conditioner to remove the burrs...I sat down with a pint of B&J and a watched a disk's worth of Gilmore Girls.
2.) Paper Towns by John Green
I'm kind of late to the The Fault in Our Stars party, but once I'd read TFiOS, I wanted to read more by John Green. The first book of his that I found after TFiOS was Paper Towns. I'm on my second reading of it, and I love it just as much - if not more - than the first time I read it. (^^The above pic was taken at the laundromat last night...my washer may not work, but last night I had a half hour of uninterrupted reading time...it was wonderful!!)
3.) The Lizzie Bennett Diaries
The Lizzie Bennett Diaries is an online web series on YouTube. It is a brilliant adaptation of Pride and Prejudice...I highly recommend it!
4.) FedEx...I admit this one sounds a little crazy...but it also justifies my month long absence. You see for the month of July I was working on writing a novel. I finished the novel on July 27th and immediately ordered a printed and spiral bound copy of it from FedEx so that I could begin editing. So far in August I've had a few people beta read for me, and have been working almost daily - between work and normal everyday life - on editing. Right now a good friend of mine is beta reading for me and it makes me nervous to know that someone besides my mom is reading it...I don't really have a picture to go with this one...
Except maybe this one!!!
In addition to editing my first novel and working on self-publishing (which is a little daunting !!! ), I'm also working on writing a sequel. So let me apologize in advance if my posts are sporadic and infrequent....that on top of the fall semester starting in a few weeks is making me a little crazy, and adding a lot to my schedule but I promise to post more than once a month!!
That's it for me for Friday Favorites....I hope I did it right, I hope you enjoyed it, and I pray that you all have a wonderful weekend!
