it's friday and a long weekend, BONUS!
are you up to fun plans? i've been feeling super creative lately, sewing, painting, baking (hence the foodie links below!) so i'm hoping to remain in that mode as it feels good when i'm in that sort of zone so to speak.
i just finished this book (long but very worth the time, hang in there!) and i have so many mixed feelings about it! at times i was on the brink of putting it right down and returning it to the library but there is something compelling about and in donna tartt's writing that almost forces you to trudge along and get to the end, as if it's a real reward for going through what much of the main character goes through (trying times to the point of such sadness) in hopes that there is a brighter light, like the bright golden color of the finch, in the end. kind of a WOW book for me. anyway...
it's friday and so, here are some fun finds from around the world wide web:
