1. A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about the mum that was devoured by the spider's corpse. This week, I'm showing you the mum that got away. This mum has returned for over five years. It seems to like us.
3. October is a really busy month for me each year. Maybe even busier than December. I typically volunteer for fall parties for the boys at their schools, plus there is Pierce's birthday, Paul's birthday, and then various fall festivals we tend to attend. It's all a lot of fun, but it's not easy fitting in all the baking for these events - particularly now that I'm working too, even if it is only part time! Hopefully it'll all come together.
4. I watched the new version of The Great Gatsby the other night (checked it out of the library). I know it got poor reviews - and honestly, whenever a movie is made from a book it can't exactly compare. However, I really liked it. The cinematography was incredible.
5. Related to The Great Gatsby - I went through a phase a few years ago where I was reading books about Zelda Fitzgerald. Interesting stuff.
Readers, are there any movies based off books that you really like?
