~ Good for you on sticking with wiser food choices. That's so hard to do this time of year, especially with all the bounty of Halloween candy, followed by Thanksgiving and Christmas feasts, in addition to colder weather that can be somewhat of a deterrent from exercising outdoors. I'm sure your Mom will love her birthday gift, along with the thought and effort you put into choosing something especially for her. Marielle
~ Have fun shopping Saturday—let us know what deals you find. I started rereading Deathly Hallows
yesterday, but I'm having a little difficulty getting back into it, for some reason. I'm still counting down the days until the movie. I would also love to see Robward play piano again for Bella in Breaking Dawn
, seeing as it was somewhat of an afterthought in Twilight. I'm still bummed they neglected to mention anything
about “Bella's Lullaby” in the previous movies, especially the monumental fact that Edward actually composed a song for Bella.
Thanks for linking us to the script rumors on the ROAR website. I usually stay away from those types of spoilers, but I'll probably have forgotten what I've read by the time November of 2012 comes around. I loved how the ROAR site referred to Isle Esme as “Isle Sexme”, I think it was. Dawn
~ Thanks for sharing your stories with us.Jaclyn~
Thanks for the clarification on Guy Fawkes holiday. I actually remember that particular holiday being mentioned in a Remus/Tonks (Harry Potter) fanfic I've read in the past. I'm certain your niece and nephews have had a grand time with you as their hosts tonight, and hope you and your bf are able to get a little rest tonight. Raine
~ Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family regarding your aunt's illness. Please let us know if you need anything, and know that we're always here with hugs, a shoulder to cry on, a little laughter, and Robcrack for distraction. Jenn Jenn
~ Snow flurries already? We're supposed to be in the 20's tonight in middle Tennessee, and I'll be freezing my buns off at my daughter's soccer game in the morning. Hope you and the kids enjoyed Toy Story 3. We loved it, and thought it was a fitting conclusion to a sweet and wonderful story. The picture of Kellan you posted was just.....wow. Susie~
I'm glad you enjoyed spending your Friday with Sonny Boy today. I guess you won't have too many more of those days....with just the two of you.
I'm sure you're having good soup weather right now and your homemade soup sounds perfect. I only wish that I liked squash in some other form than grilled or lightly stir-fried. I guess the mushier texture of it when cooked other ways just doesn't agree with me? I hope you and hubs enjoyed your time relaxing and watching movies tonight. I agree about the subject matter and tone of The Hunger Games
being fairly dark in nature. As much as I loved them, I certainly can't imagine my daughter reading them anytime
soon, as they would probably give her nightmares. Enjoy your Saturday around the house....those are the best kinds of Saturdays. Do you have much to do at home to get things in order before your surgery? Hopefully you'll have a little time for reading, Lexing, and posting on the laptop while you recuperate. Ginnie
~ I loved the Harry Potter parody with Train's song—that was too funny. Caryn
~ Hope you were able to get pampered a bit at the salon today. I loved the Chihuly exhibit as well, and wasn't familiar with his work until Susie and Missp
came for a visit. While visiting his exhibit, we also watched an amazing video that showed the process by which he and his team prepared and completed his masterpieces. It was truly incredible and awe-inspiring. Glad to know you'll be taking over Stephanie Meyer's writing and executive producing duties for her on Sundays. Way to take one for the team, girl.

Good to hear from you again. The wine-tasting event sounds wonderful and I imagine the local art gallery was the perfect venue for your party. I'm glad the other catering company was able to come through for you as a replacement at the last minute.....what a lifesaver.
We don't have cats now, but the ones we had growing up certainly did manage their own kind of mischief...like getting stuck in places they couldn't get out of, etc.
