The rest of this month and the beginning of June is going to fly by. FLY BY. There is so much coming down the pipe that I just know the time is going to move faster than I can keep up with.
Emily Giffin has a new book out and of course I need to read it as soon as I can get my hands on it.
The movie Chef is coming to Saint John soon and I am greatly looking forward to this one. Nevermind the fact that I adore Jon Favreau and pretty much all of his work, the cast looks great and the movie is about food…so, yeah. I’m in.
Also out soon is Maleficent. My daughter is obsessed with this. When she was in grade seven (she’s in grade ten now), she had to write a paper on a famous story from the villain’s point of view. She wrote about Maleficent, her favourite villain. Needless to say she’s been counting down the days and I am also looking forward to this one.
And then…TFIOS. Yes, I am 100% on this bandwagon. I already love John Green’s books and yes, I watch his video’s on YouTube, and I firmly believe that he is to this generation what John Hughes was to mine. The Fault in our Stars is a stunning book. It is touching, sad, laugh-out-loud funny, poignant and sweet. And it made me cry like a mo-fo. Knowing that John himself was so involved with the movie makes me more than optimistic that this will NOT be one of those film adaptations that misses the mark. On the contrary, I feel like this is going to deliver in a way no other film adaptation has. Maybe ever.
After all the book and movie stuff is done, we have the milestone of my daughter Kathryn’s graduation from Grade 8. High school next year. My kids are getting older so quickly.
Then we have a summer full of visits from old friends and my new job that I’m settling into and a pool to open and everything that we can think of that will keep us busy, healthy and happy. I have a feeling it’s going to be a good summer. We’re going to take the kids to PEI…because we can. It’s literally right there, about three hours away. My life here constantly surprises me.
This week I’m back to writing, working, more writing and in the next couple of weeks I’ve decided to audition for a show with the Saint John theatre. It’s been too long since I’ve been on a stage. More news about that as I have it.
Hope everyone had a lovely long weekend. Chiao!
