Last night when I went to my book club, I was reminded how in this strange year, I have made some unexpected and good connections. When I told the people at my club that I would be leaving, they were sad and hoped I could come before I left. Since the weather was beautiful, we sat in the backyard of one of the main couples, which was nice. This is a small book club and pretty much the same people have attended so there has been continuity. There was one of those metal fire pits so we ended up making s'mores at the end of the night. It a was a great reminder that while this year hasn't been perfect, its had good in it.
The run up to it was kind of fun as well since I got the time wrong, so I rushed about making delicious cherry cornbread muffins. I need to make them again since they're some of the best muffins I've had in a while with the cornbread texture but very moist. So I made them, thinking I was going to be late, got to the house and there was no one there. The meeting was at 8 but I think meet up still had it listed as 7 so I had my time's wrong. As I was waiting, I went to a favorite cafe where I found a lot of teenagers and their cars hanging out. Now this isn't a huge parking lot but according to the woman in the cafe, this is what kids do. Some of the cars looked like they belonged in The Fast and the Furious, while there were also some beautiful classic cars. Later I noticed that in other parking lots along Woodward, there were more cards. According to my friends at the book club, this is a definite thing in the area and there's a day in August when Woodward itself is shut down just so people can go cruising. Moments like this remind me how much of a car town this is. Next time I spot them, I need to take pictures as there were some gorgeous cars.
Tomorrow I'm going to go see a matinee of Pacific Rim and probably see it again with Rick. I'm in the mood for a good action movie and love del Toro. I need to get to work prepping for moving, get a date from the movers and then give that date to apartment company, who sound like they'll be able to release it pretty quickly. Then I hope to have some time in the east coast to travel, settle and look for a job. I never got that before moving out here, this year has been strange with few moments to go, oh, I feel safe and comfortable where I am.
My writing is going slowly, my Narnia story is started but I need to do even more with it to make it work, but I do have a little time.
FicFriday was pretty quiet this week, I filled a few on my journal
and then three on Twitter. All Teen Wolf ones because I love the families on that show.
For @afullmarginOooh, always up for family shenanigans!
Allison's family saw the world through trust. Trust to survive, trust to tell, trust to lie to the right people. She made trust.
Stiles learned every police code once his father realized he wanted to know to understand. That way, no matter, he would know.
For @animalmysoulSomething Teen Wolf for #ficfriday?
Stiles knew he should sleep but his father was running late. If he got up then he could hear the scanner, then he would know.
Apparently I have a lot of feelings about Stiles and his dad, I just love their relationship and how Teen Wolf deals with families.
