Hello! I can't even really remember what I've covered in recent Natters so forgive me if I'm repeating anything. Casey finally got his internet working. Turns out it was a broken wire in the line coming into his apartment. He's much happier now that he has internet again, and has been home much less. He did come over yesterday because he missed the cats, and ended up falling asleep on the couch most of the afternoon. He was back again today to pick up the game controller he'd forgotten yesterday, and ended up falling asleep again. Ty came over too today. Turns out his internet was down so he was bored. *snort* Like he came to visit his mom or anything. They were going to go back to Casey's place and play video games but then Ty decided he didn't want to and Casey fell asleep for a bit longer. lol
Hubby's had a chance to play around on his new tractor a bit now. He's trying to level out some spots in our driveway. There are some potholes and just the ruts that have gotten deeper over time. It's been so wet and muddy lately though that he hasn't been able to really get out there and get busy. He's also reeeeally been into coloring lately. My own interest tapered off for the moment because I've been playing UO again, but there is an itch to get back to it.
We went ahead and splurged on a monster set of Prismacolor pencils. This is the 150 color (?!) set.
Lordee, look at all those shades! They just arrived yesterday and neither of us has tried them yet. We're sort of in awe, like "Don't touch them!" Everyone swears by these pencils though. He found out even his friend/coworker uses these. We didn't even know that guy and his girlfriend were into coloring. lol
I have not made ANY cards lately. I need to get back to it. I'm kinda doubting I'll get Easter cards made in time. *sigh*
Hubby and I watched Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children last night. I was surprised by how much he seemed to enjoy it. I read the book a couple years and really enjoyed it. I didn't like the second one nearly as much. I think there is even a third one now? Anyway, seeing this movie was quite fun. I'm not a fan of time travel stories so I do have my grumbles about this whole thing, but the movie was just fun to watch. I even had to show Ty and Casey some bits of it today because the 'hollows' (the main monsters) are very Slenderman-like. I wonder if they're making a second movie? And I'll need to check if there is indeed a third book. If so, I might have to change my mind about giving up on the story and go ahead and read it.
For now, I must go. Hubby will be home soon and some Big Bang Theory DVDs are calling to me.
Are you a Miss Peregrine fan? Have you seen the movie, read the books, or both?
What else has been happening in your world lately?
