Snow Day

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.
