Love Day Friday

I think it's time for a little Friday love-fest.

Today I'm sharing the love for:
  • Movie: The Tale of Despereaux. I watched it with Child the day she was sick, and we both adored it. Great story, great flick. My first exposure to Kate DiCamillo! I don't think it'll be the last for either of us.
  • Book: SKINNED, by Robin Wasserman. Great concept, plot, voice, complex characters. And look, I can get the sequel, too! This is the bonus for being slow on reading.
  • My WIP. I know, I can't actually *share* it. But SALVAGED is finally skipping forward again after a facelift of the first 50 pages, and I like where it's going!
  • Music: This is an oldie, but The Psychedelic Furs. Hubby and I went to Seattle on Monday to see them live (probably my 4th time (?) and hubby's in the tens), and LOVED them. As always.
  • Food: Cupcakes. Particularly this one. (hee hee) And these. YUM.
Please join in!! What are you loving today? Post in the comments!

Today I am loving the quiet! Son#3 started kindergarten on Wednesday, but I had to work. So today is my first real day of peace and quiet!

I'm loving fall.

Yesterday I fell in love with pumpkin spice lattes.

Sara: Quiet, aaah. And I must try this hyped Pumpkin Spice Latte. (my Starbucks is shouting about it all over!)

I love that after a rash of meh books, I've had two good reads: Unseen by Alexandre Sokoloff and Voracious by Alice Henderson.

I love that it's Saturday and I'm lounging about in my pyjamas, while my son and his friend are immersed in their video game -- we can do what we want today, yay!

I love that I'm going through the 3rd-ish draft of my novel making planning notes for its final edit!

Finally, I love Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, because he is just _awesome_.

This was a very fun! Thanks for posting.

Ooooh, I'll have to check into SKINNED. I've heard good things about it, but if Sparkle-Suze thinks it's awesome, then it MUST BE. :D

Glad everyone's starting to feel better, bb! And sooooo jealous about Psych Furs!! Did they play LOVE MY WAY?? No wait, don't tell me...I'll just ENVY you more. ;)

Loving my agent today. She's just plain cool. : ) Also loving the color of the leaves on the trees in my back yard. Also love that video of Victoria. Ha!

You have to read DiCamillo's Edward Tulane... you and Child will love sharing it together.

I am loving that it is the weekend... for another 10 hours at least.

Susan Adrian said...

Ev: pajamas and good books rock. :)

Emily: Yes, they played LOVE MY WAY!! :) Ooops, sorry...

Gerb: Wasn't the video fabulous? And I love my agent too. Yay for that!

Tiffany: Yes, I WILL need to read DiCamillo. Clearly.
