Happy Sunday, everyone! I'm not sure about you but I am done with these very hot days. Summer was never my favorite season but I like the liveliness that characterizes this season. Except when it's too hot. Like most of the past few days.
We spent this past week checking out some furniture stores. We've been slowly browsing through furniture collections and just made a master bedroom purchase that I'm so excited about. Blame the lack of show around here this past week on that. Plus, the husband had been traveling for the past three weeks - this rarely translates into more reading time for me.
Yesterday, I sold one of the shorter bookshelves that I've had for a couple of years. We had placed it in the office room along with a taller bookshelf, which I'm also trying to sell off. Right now, a big stack of books are on the floor and I imagine they're going to be that way for a while. I've been browsing around for ideas for a single larger bookshelf in the office room and right now, a cube organizer is the one that sounds the most versatile to me. Still, I've been bookmarking some photos and may post them someday.
Friday night, the husband, my brother and I went for the 11pm show of The Conjuring. As if a late night show wasn't a bad enough idea, we had to go for a horror movie itself. I usually stay away from this genre - most of the horror stuff seem very contrived and manipulative to me. The Conjuring was very genuine though. I shamelessly yelped a few times in the theater and occasionally rambled off prayers for the characters. I was surprised to learn that Ed and Lorraine Warren (the demonologists or "ghostbusters" in the movie) had a real-life career of dealing with the ghosts. Right after the movie, I spent a good chunk of time (at 2 am in the night) researching the Warrens and apparently, a lot of people thought they were just liars, since they didn't have any evidence. And that's what surprised me more - where's all the evidence (photos, videos, audios) that they were shown taking in this particular case at least. The on-screen Warrens were such a nice couple - it's a shame, really, that they're not able to provide more concrete evidence about the existence of ghosts. I may even give the concept of ghosts a chance, if I could see some of that.
Any how, the movie was really well-done and well-worth your time in the theater, if you can manage to sit through the horror of it all. At least, I've realized two things after the movie: 1. If I moved to a house where ominous things happened, I'll fly out of there first thing. But, most importantly, 2. I'll take our dog to our potential homes in the future and see if she enters. If she won't, so won't I.
What else is happening on this hot Sunday?
