Sitting around looking back at the past week, its been consumed with my house, boyfriend, horror movie marathon, catching up on TV and writing posts and of course, work. Time is really a scarce resource, my friends.
Still, I’ve learned a few thing this week even if its not even having to step out of my neighborhood 😉
Lets see what I’ve been up to, right?
1) Marathoning at the max!
October Halloween Horror month is what set off the blog in 2012 and its what motivates. I know that a lot of you are interested in this genre so every year I try to up my game. This weekend I had some crazy motivation and got through 4 films in the rundown. I know, I know, a deserve a pat on the back. Wait until you see what else I got done 😉
The movies were interesting to say the least. I already posted up the Friday 13th Part 2 review this morning. I pretty much have one more movie to watch to complete this week. Although, I’m actually thinking about whether to do a few weekend reviews or just do a few double review days. I usually try to avoid weekends since the posts never are popular because we’re all generally busy with our own lives.
2) TV time!
Who’d have thought after watching so many movies, I’d still have time for TV, right? Well, yeah, sacrificing sleep or just pure insomnia week is where I’m at. So I’m finishing up Arrow Season 2. I only have maybe 5-7 episodes to go which should be land me right in time for Wednesday for Season 3.
Other than that, I started Vampire Diaries Season 6. Its interesting to say the least. From how Season 5 ended, I figured everyone would be yet again grieving in their own separate ways (and this time, its pretty literal). I’m not a hard audience to please when it comes to Vampire Diaries so I was relatively happy with it. I do hope that things intensify gradually because I can see things getting a lot worse before they get better as is always the case with Vampire Diaries 😉
I do intend on eventually checking out How to Get Away With Murder and Gotham. Before that, I’m going to work on Arrow 😉
3) House: New Lights
One of the biggest successes this week is finally having the basement done. Its just having my two DVD shelves over and arranging all the stuff into it but in general, its painted, the new wall lights (from Rona) were installed, trimmings done, furniture arranged and even bought a floor lamp (from IKEA) to help with lighting up the room a little. Its feels pretty good to know that almost everything is in place for the basement. I even managed to rearrange the storage in shelves and started putting a video games away. Its rewarding to look at the basement and be pleased that its finally coming around.
Only one more room to do and thats the kitchen. Along with my furniture to come in and a bunch of organization but its definitely coming along nicely 🙂
4) House: Cabinet decoration
Things are slowly coming out of the boxes and my room is looking more and more empty as things are boxed up at my new place. The first floor is technically done safe for what I mentioned before, organization. Now that the garden is all transplanted with a few little decisions left and a whole lot of leaves raking, I was indoors taking care of pulling things out. IKEA had a lovely sale on a glass cabinet and we bought that a few weeks ago so I couldn’t leave it so sad and empty in its corner. Here’s how it turned out:
Yup, thats a Yuna from Final Fantasy on the top and yes, those are the original My Little Ponies at the bottom. Nothing is extremely valuable as in I’ll be able to sell it off and get back a lot of money but its valuable because of the memories it holds whether from person who I got it from, the travels or just parts of my life 🙂 Its not exactly done but I think its 90% there.
5) Yummy Lamb Chops
The weather gets cooler and my mom loves to make lamb. Sunday night, she made lamb chops and they were absolutely delicious. 🙂
6) Cat Napping Time
Let me introduce you to a Saturday morning at 8:30am (because we all wake up at 7am to feed my cat), especially after a few late evenings away from home during the week. The result is not only being waken up brutally early on Saturday morning but that when I crawl back into bed, she’ll finish eating and then comes back for her morning nap and usually is her obstructing me from getting up. Apparently my blanket covered legs are extremely comfortable to sleep on.
There’s really nothing else that happened other than those little things so how about to end things off with some music that I love this week 🙂
Daniel de Bourg is an independent artist and this new single is awesome! 🙂 Plus, when in doubt, Jason Mraz is a sure fire 😉
How was your past week? TV? Horror marathon also? Any Halloween traditions? Also going through home renovations?
Happy Monday, my lovelies! 🙂
