Friday Fill Ins

1. October goes. One of my favorite songs is Barry Manilow's "When October Goes." Used to make me cry (not that it takes much), reminds me of leaving friends which makes me cry more. Yes, I'm a huge Manilow fan.

2. Stinging insects near me or my baby scare me! I used to swat in mild annoyance when bees and things would come around, but now that I have Chris, I freak out. I scream like a little girl and run away.

3. Leaves are falling all around, it's bittersweet. Only God can make death beautiful. And He does, year after year. On one hand, I love fall, because the colors are so breathtakingly beautiful, but on the other, it's the beginning of season of plant death, and cold, and death, which is also lovely but kind of sad too.

4. My favorite horror movie is The Twilight Zone because of that scene where John Lithgow is on the plane, and only he can see the little goblin that's trying to destroy it. Come to think of it, that's not my favorite horror movie, I don't like horror movies, they keep me up at night, and give me the willies for years to come. Does Goonies count as a horror movie?

5. Good Laughs = good memories. The best memories come when something makes you laugh so hard you can't breathe.

6. It was a dark and stormy night when the carriage pulled up to front of the enormous mansion, and out stepped a faceless figure. The light from the doorway revealed the doctor who had come to deliver the baby. I remember seeing a movie like that. How come doctors don't make house calls anymore?

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to Game Night, tomorrow my plans include Serenade and visiting Eric's Grandma and Sunday, I want to hear about the Lord's works and take a nap! Eric is away on a Christian retreat, the Via de Cristo, this weekend, working hard and having a great time, and I'm working hard here. I'm a little jealous. Those weekends are so transforming and inspiring. I can't wait to hear what the Lord has done on this weekend from Eric on Sunday night.
