Currents :: 09.22.12

Books: All things Tolkien. September 22 is the birthday of both Frodo and Bilbo Baggins. I think we should all eat at least eight times today to celebrate. Who’s with me?

Writing: I just discovered that my heroine is an engineer. I thought she was a lawyer. Sigh.

Home: We’re doing some redecorating at our house. By “we” I mean I’ve found someone with impeccable tastes to tell me what looks good and then I’m buying it. It’s going great :-)!

Food: I made grits out of cauliflower. And they were good. Pretty sure I’ve lost my mind. Or maybe had my tastebuds taken over by an alien life force.

Movies: (See note above about books). Can’t wait for The Hobbit. Which is unfortunate…it doesn’t come out until December.

TV: Clemson vs. Florida State. 8PM. Need I say more?

Wonders: Emma has joined the Drama Club at school (those of you who know her can appreciate how appropriate this is). This week, I met some of the sweet things who have taken her under their wing—a group of adorable girls who were quick to tell me that Emma had “done great” and is “so sweet” and had fully participated! My little “Emma bug” never ceases to amaze me.

Weirdness: I’ve been watching The Lord of the Rings trilogy in honor of Hobbit Day (Sept. 22). Pretty sure that will earn me a gold star for my nerd wall. :-)

May your weekend be filled with wonders and weirdness!

Grace and peace,

I didn't know you were a nerd. A pretty nerd. A non-nerdy nerd. :-)

Vonda - "non-nerdy nerd" made me snort...which is pretty nerdy. :-)

Late getting here. Interesting week you had--everything from cauliflower grits to sweet Emma and the Drama Club!

I'll be looking for wonders and weirdness today. Thanks for the blessing!
