Today, we're going house hunting. Again. We've scouted neighborhoods, scribbled down addresses as we pass by, spoken with a realtor, have had our first and second dates and now we've set a third. We've (and by we've I mean Dad, Victor and I) set our hearts on one or two already, but Mom is still oh so hesitant. House hunting is dreadfully full of particulars, you know. It's been a while since I've done a Thumbs Up. Thumbs Down post, and I feel I need one this week, so here we go:
- Summer's gone gone gone and has taken so much with it.
- My senior of high school. Not going as well as I thought.
- Blogging will get less and less frequent I'm afraid. I have no time now; I'm trying to do two days of schoolwork per day in order to finish by January. Let's see how that works out.
- Indecision. A burden. That I'm sure of. I think.
- House hunting. It's so much fun to dream, and stand around in the living room when we get back, each of us with objects in our hands full of things to do, but taking time to pause and engage in an exciting conversation full of dreams and thoughts of houses and fulfilling its potential the best way we can, the way we want to.
- All the participation and support on our first Linky Party! It was awesome and I can't thank you all enough for participating and sharing. You are each amazing and with each submission you make my world a brighter place, Thank You.
- iBooks. Honestly, this would have to by on the Thumbs Down list too because I promise you this app will be the ruin of me. Having so many books from my book-list at my fingertips for free without having to wait for Library Hold lines is divine. I read two of Louisa May Alcott's work in five days without staying up 'til dawn or interfering with my schoolwork. Blogosphere, that's a feat I never thought possible. Have you any recommendations for books I should download?
- Real books. Will always have first place in my heart when it comes to reading methods. I'm envious of all Americans with a thrift store in their town. When I go to the States I make a point of rummaging through thrift store book aisles. You have so many classics and books in good shape in thrift shops and used bookstores that it kind of seems pointless to buy books in bookstores (although you might catch me doing that from time to time). This time, when we came back from Virginia I returned eight books richer. We don't have it that good here in Canada. *sigh*
- Autumn. Although I'll always be loving Summer in the back of my mind, I can still appreciate fall. It's my second favorite season. Something, dare I say.. magical? about the winds of Autumn. There's something in the air, I'm not sure what it is, but I like it. I love the colors, the smells, the snip in the breeze, the heralding of another winter...
P.S. Please feel free to add your Thumbs Up/Down in the comments!
