Thursday Thoughts - Excuse me, but can I be you for a while my dog won't bite if you sit real still

1. My main plans for this weekend are to peace the fuck out and spend the entire thing alone with no schedule or must dos/must be at/must attend/must get done. The last few weekends have been peopley and schedule/event oriented and while I love my people and have enjoyed my events, I am so looking forward to doing absolutely nothing that's been planned in advance.

2. I would like to end the year less frazzled feeling so I think I'll likely dedicate some weekend time brainstorming and making lists. These are a few of my favorite things.

3. Tuesday was National Pug Day, which Bruce Springsteen would have you know is every day, okay.

4. Yesterday we pulled the winners of the Show Us Your Books 5th Anniversary giveaway. Three Megans (well two Megans and one Meghan to be concise) were winners plus a Shawn and an Audrey. As Jana said, it was a good day to be a Megan.

5. I finished The Testaments by Margaret Atwood this week and started this book right after. From what I gather, at least the backdrop of the story will be the book women of KY, which I haven't heard more than a shout about in my life then I read The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson in May and now this book. I liked Book Woman and I feel bad that it will be overshadowed by Stars given the larger name recognition of Jojo Moyes. There's apparently a buzz about these two books and I'm sort of shocked by the pull comparisons in this article someone shared on The Tumbling Nomads IG yesterday! The Moyes is dragging for me and I’m not sure if it’s because I’m anticipating a book similar to one I’ve already read, because I don’t like one of the main characters, or because I’ve been put off by the similarities pointed out in the article or what.

6. My nail polish did not hold up well this week. I look to get a solid six days out of it and that was absolutely not the case given that I painted them on Friday morning and they were chipped beyond repair by Wednesday night. I'm hoping for some more staying power this week. Pacifica Luxe Interior.

7. I put the moon pendant Lori got me last weekend on my Grandmom's long necklace and I'm quite pleased with it.

8. Last night’s weather was hell. There were no shuttles at the train station so I walked 3/4 of a mile in the pouring rain and took a direct wall of water hit from a passing car to the pants. I decided it was a good night for monkey bread, which never fails to bring my Home Ec teacher, Ms. Paxson, to mind.

9. Reminder: It's the little things that build the life.

10. Ecards. 

I couldn't even get into your president's nonsensical idiot letter to Turkey today because I just fucking can't. His irresponsible actions put American soldiers and allies in danger and they're releasing fucking ISIS prisoners which seems weird for the Muslim Ban supporters to be okay with. So foreign policy, much presidential. One hundred million eyerolls he is unfit for office fight me on this. 

Rest in peace, Elijah Cummings. A true patriot and public servant. 

What appears after the hyphen in Thursday Thoughts is a song lyric to whatever I'm listening to when I start to write the post. This week is Silent All These Years by Tori Amos
