  1. Saw it today with 18 yr old dd and her good friend. Both girls and I enjoyed it. It was a beautiful film. I knew I would cry - I always do-, but I definitely agree that the chronology of this film made the rejection and Beth's fate more central. I cried for a lot of the movie. 😉 I liked a lot of things about this one. I saw the Ryder version in the theatre in the 90s and enjoyed the recent BBC version. It's been many years since I saw the Elizabeth Taylor/Margaret O'Brien version. I thought the actress playing Jo did a good job - different than the exuberant version of Jo in the WR version - but believable and still accurate to the book. Amy was always my favorite and I liked the actress that played her in many ways, but still trying to decide if it would have been preferable to have a younger actress play her in a few scenes.
  2. Love Most Notorious! and can't wait to try True Crime Historian. Love reading through old newspapers, so this sounds like great fun.

  4. This is us now. We have a cat that will eat any type of tulle, ribbon, mesh or lace he can get to. Our tree is only decorated on the top half and the stockings (all handmade by my 18 yr old and each has lace) had to be hung at the last minute and guarded carefully until they were empty and then stored away again. My oldest taped a photo of Baby Yoda on top of the tree because the angel is so tempting we are afraid he would climb up and eat her dress. A trip to the emergency vet for a blockage is not my idea of holiday fun. (The cat is 3 years old and he has had 3 surgeries for blockages so far.)
  5. Yes, he will have to include everyone's income.
  6. Sorry you weren't able to find anything, but wanted to thank you for mentioning the illustrated edition HPs were on there. I ordered those as I was planning to get them for the girls anyway, and I found most of my 18 year old dd's book list on there so I placed several more orders.
  7. My dd was a ballet dancer at the time of her first period and had to use tampons from day one. She used the smallest sized Playtex Sport brand - never had any trouble with them.
  8. My 21 year old dd and I are planning to do it. We were logging into our NANOWRIMO accts tonight to get ready. I've tried it before and struggled when I got behind and then just sort of got overwhelmed and gave up. We are trying to be more mindful when choosing our word count this time.
  9. It is a small porch that my husband screened in this spring. The outside is actually painted to match the house - we didn't paint the inside because we knew they would scratch the posts and they do. They have a blanket on the other side and a small house on the rug to the left. We don't leave them out there when we aren't home though because I am worried that the little demon would escape through the screen somehow. 😉 It's not visible in the photo but we have bird feeders near the wood sided building across the driveway. I am convinced that the birds have figured out that the cats can't reach them because they like to perch in the bushes on either side of the porch which creates instant CAT TV.
  10. Terrorist is a good name for one of our kitties. We usually call him a demon although my youngest named him for an angel from her favorite TV show. I love him so much, but he is the worst cat we have ever had - we currently have 5 inside cats. He is three years old now and I have no hope he is going to outgrow his bad behaviors now. 😉 He chews on all kinds of things and has had 3 surgeries to remove fabric/lace/and a dryer sheet from his stomach. I recently caught him chewing the corner of our dresser for no apparent reason. He bullies the other cats. He bites and scratches. When he wants petted and loved he must have it, even if that means waking me up at 3:30 am to pet him a while. He tries to get outside even though he has a huge catio my dh built for all of them this spring. He was dumped out of a car around 3-4 weeks and a friend found him sitting on the yellow lines in the middle of the road. He has been loved and adored since then, and is not afraid of anything. PS The photo is of him laying down so sweetly with his favorite toy. That sheep has been with him since we first brought him home and he still carries it around a good bit. He will take it to the catio or into the laundry room where the litter boxes are, and into window sills so it can help him watch for us when we are away from home or even just outside. He hates to be left alone.
  11. I think her flower box and curtains turned out great! Glad you two are enjoying it. Miniatures were something my youngest and I have wanted to do for a while, but just never had time or space. We are working on a cemetery to go beside our haunted house. If your gd would be interested in painting or staining some furniture, our local dollar stores sometimes carry unfinished wooden furniture. I bought some to practice painting/finishing techniques on and it will be fine as a place holder type thing until we can get what we want later. I used half of a cocoa box, an egg carton, paint, mod podge, and spackling for the fireplace. The spackling was the only thing I had to purchase (the top is just a scrap of wood I stained with walnut stain I already had). I've made flooring and wallpaper with brown packaging paper, glue, water and some stain or paint. I am having fun with it, and I wouldn't consider myself crafty at all.
  12. My 18 yr old and I started remodeling a dollhouse as a haunted house/Addams family house type of thing 6 months ago. Now that she's away at college, I am trying to keep up with it and work on little pieces. I made a fireplace for the kitchen and now hope to make or find a cauldron type pot to hang in it with some creepy type of concoction brewing. I saw an eyeball stew type thing on Etsy that my oldest and I might try to recreate. Anyway, I thought I'd share. I am not a crafty type person, but I've always loved miniatures and I can't afford to buy most of the ones I like so I guess I will learn to be crafty. 😉
  13. I'm with some of the earlier posters - in that I am not comfortable with sharing IRL now that they are adults. I can't believe that the baby is 18 and away at college. 2 girls - ages 21 and 18. I'd love an invite.
  14. Voted for your friend. There were lots of adorable designs.
