Hope everyone has enjoyed a holiday or some time off this month (regardless of your beliefs). For those of you who are snowed in, I hope you are making the most of it. My boys are looking forward to sledding today. I’m looking forward to them sledding while I continue revising Sophie.
This weekend I got to enjoy several movies related to books: Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and Prince Caspian. The kids were a bit confused by the Narnia movies, especially the beginnings, but enjoyed them none the less.
I am constantly amazed by how my childrens’ brains work. At dinner last night the 4 year old said, “What if Hagrid was Hagrid the Hut?” To which RocketMan replied: “A big, hairy blob with a magical umbrella? Cool.”
Maybe instead of sledding they should make a Hagrid the Hut Snowman. Too bad it’s powdery snow.
Maybe my 7 year old will want to read the Chronicles of Narnia soon. He’s currently about halfway through the 2nd Harry Potter book: The Chamber of Secrets. Every night when I come to turn off his light, sing him a song and say goodnight, he begs for a few more minutes or a few more pages. Then again, he has a couple of Magic Treehouse books, How To Train Your Dragon and a few others he received for his birthday or Chanukah. There is never any shortage of books in this house!
Thanks to all this family movie time, I have completed several crocheting projects (4 pairs of fingerless mitts, and 3 hats) and the bug hasn’t yet run its course. What should I make next? I like quicky, easy projects that satisfy my need to get back to revising, and my need for almost immediate gratification (since I don’t get that from writing – LOL).
Well, I hope you are enjoying the comforts of a warm hearth or a warm beach, or at the very least, somplace dry.
