Hello there petals! I do hope you’re enjoying your Friday. I meant to stop in and do this a bit earlier, but I’ve been out and about; and then racing around organising last minute things for a milestone family birthday celebration that’s happening this weekend.
Of course, I’m sure you must be in complete suspense by now, waiting for my linkies…*snort*. It’s good that she has her hobbies ; )
It’s bloody freeeeezing here today!* For those of you enduring ongoing heat, I will happily hand you a large dollop of icy. If you care for some.
In fact, it’s big woolly socks-and-jumper weather. This evening I’m going to brew up a large pot of kale and white bean soup for dinner, and possibly some mulled wine. That’ll warm the blood and bones! And no doubt induce some cackles. Ye verily!
Now then. Linkies…
To be honest, the Aunts, and that house (!) are reasons enough, but here are ’17 Reasons We Still Want to Live in the Movie Practical Magic’…
I’ve been meaning to post this link for a while now…
A couple of weeks ago the teaser trailer for the American Gods tv series was released. I watched it, and then promptly had kittens. Because I do so love the much-loved book of the same name, by Neil Gaiman; steeped as it is in mythologies of old gods in conflict with the new gods of our Age. Gaiman is apparently involved in the production process, so far as approving the scripts. Looks like a cracker. Um. Perhaps don’t watch if you’re a bit squeamish.
I recently discovered and began follow Lakin Easterling (readingraven) on the Instagrin. I’ve since discovered her website and her gorgeous writing. I don’t know her, personally, but I suspect she may be a kindred spirit.
As someone who has known anxiety a little too intimately at times, I do find these mocked-up magazine covers quite hilarious…
Although I’m not much of a shopper**, I do sometimes covet the pretties. I know the whole craze for all things lunar is kind of done to death, (like dream catchers, and bird skulls, and vintage rolling pins, Mel ; ), but…I do still love me some lunar bling. Like these goodies on etsy…
This will be me when I’m an old lady. I’m getting in plenty of practise now.
Well, I’m off to make that mulled wine. I shall raise a glass to you, my friends, and wish you a fine and happy weekend. Toodle-oo, luvs. xx
*Canadians and dwellers of the Far Northern regions of the world: you have permission to laugh derisively at the big, soft Aussie, who describes 11 degrees celsius as “freeeeezing” (with 5 ‘e’s”, no less).
**In all honesty, my most recent purchase was a packet of shasta daisy seeds, and a big bag of horse poo. I confess to having uttered a small squeal of excitement about the horse poo. This elicited an expression of deep dismay on my appalled teenage daughter’s face. Even though I’m beyond hope, she did say to me, “I still love you, mum”.
