I’m beginning to think Abram is some sort of Monopoly genius. My dad played a six hour game against him while we were gone and Abram won. I would chalk it up to grandparents being grandparents except I’ve played two games against him recently and he’s straight up whomped me both times.
Yesterday, I walked outside to find Violet rollerblading while reading a book. I didn’t know whether to be proud of her industriousness or shake my head at her lack of safety consciousness.
Still knitting. My colorway for the DVD club this month is called Monopoly Money (it’s a theme this month). I think I should be able to get them finished. I started watching “The Real Housewives of New York City” from the beginning while I was trying to power through my graduation gift socks and I’m now on season 3. The first two seasons weren’t bad. This season is just vicious and I don’t know if I can handle it. I’m so thin skinned, I just want to yell at everyone to get along already.
In other television news, I watched the first season of Outlander. Season 2 isn’t any where I can buy it yet (unless I want to move to Australia) so I’m impatiently waiting. I wasn’t crazy about the books (started great, had great cliff hanger endings, lots of blah, blah, blah in the middle) so I stopped either on the second or third in the series (I can’t remember which) but the show is good. To the best of my limited memory, it follows the books relatively closely. Fair warning, it can be a bit…graphic. Jesse doesn’t watch it but he did say to a friend, “Every time I walk through while she’s watching someone is either being tortured or having sex”. (Bad timing, there are some very sweet and interesting plot progressions that have nothing to do with either.) As I said, it follows the books. And there was a scene with full frontal male nudity so viewer beware if that’s not your thing.
Hoping to jumpstart some interest in my camera, I decided to rent a lens I’ve been eyeing and try it out. I’m supposed to receive it Thursday and I can’t wait!! (I also hope I don’t fall in love with it because to buy it is $$$$$$$)
We’re horrible at composting. We have a rotating composter that has two bins. One is basically dry twigs and the other is sludge. And when I put more greens in the dry and more dry in the sludge, they just reverse. I figure eventually it will figure itself out. Or I’ll have a really expensive and stinky garbage bin that I get to haul away. Any tips?
Any book recommendations? I just finished “What She Knew” and really wasn’t a fan.
