October 21, 2016


Yesterday was 100% focused on the Journal Club sampler class that is starting this weekend. I had an amazing time preparing the class. I just felt drawn into a whole other world - a world of cozy blankets, lit candles and writing in journals while curled up in cozy spots. It made my attitude towards a cool, dark and rainy day turn right around!


I was really excited to re-read Macbeth this week, as someone on YouTube is hosting a "Shakesalong" Shakespeare readathon, and this was the play they picked. I actually reread it fairly recently (last year), in anticipation of the "new" film, but then I never got around to watching the new version because it came out later than expected. All that said, this re-read was awesome, I really understood the story and characters and look forward to watching the new version (there is also a version with Patrick Stewart ...woohoo! Might have to work that in too.).


Thursday I could not do anything but rest or watch Vampire Diaries and I tried to get a screen capture but look! They don't show up on screen capture, LOL. Ugh, so tired. But at least I finally got some rest but I had to cancel going to help out at class which sucks.

What a beautiful container for flowers Jamie and am glad you are finding some time under blankets like that during your journal journey.

Shannon, does that mean there is another new version of Macbeth coming out and it is with Patrick Stewart? That's crazy! Although I am glad you enjoyed the reread.

Awesome pic Jamie! I think cozy is a total cool vibe that's hanging out with Journal Sampler. And it's always nice to be cozy on rainy days!

Wow that is really wild that they black out, or white out, the screen when you take a screenshot! It sounds like you are enjoying Vampire Diaries! I almost wish I had kept up with it. I'm glad you are getting some rest but sorry to hear you couldn't help out with the class :(

Oh, sorry if the Macbeth stuff was confusing. As far as I know, there is no new version coming out. I had been reading last year in anticipation for the Michael Fassbender version, which came out last year. The Patrick Stewart one isn't new, I've not watched it yet. Linky is there for that one if you want to see it.

You can see the stats of the show! LOL, that's funny. Vampire Diaries is fun when I don't want to think so I've been watching it a lot lately.

Oh I didn't realize the Patrick Stewart Macbeth was older, yes, that makes more sense now, thanks.
