August Monthly News

Welcome to the August edition of monthly news!
My baby turned 19! Now both of my kids are adults!! That is a change in itself.
Won a weekend pass to Riverfest Elora. Saw The Sheepdogs and 54-40 perform, among a few lesser known bands, and that was cool. We only went the one day though. Work calls!
Other than that it was all about family as we get set for the next season to arrive.
What did you do this month that was out of the ordinary?

  6. I can't wait to read Fractured...and I LOVED Pretty Girls. I'm eagerly awaiting Slaughter's newest book. Thanks for sharing.

    Five of my GRANDchildren are now "adults." LOL. Funny how quickly that happens.

  7. Seems crazy how fast time goes by, right? I'm sure it will seem like no time before my kids are grown too. I already can't believe I'm the mom of a teen.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout.
