Halfway through November, how did that happen?

In news of the random, we finally broke down and bought a new (to us) car: a 2011 Toyota Sienna, which is one of the bigger minivans out there. It’s all black, with tinted back windows--it is in desperate need of a SHIELD logo for the back window. Nothing too flashy, just something textured and black. =D Unfortunately, it did not come with Melinda May to drive it (or Mack to keep it running.) Back in the real world, it has bluetooth! My podcasts/audiobooks never sounded so good. What I’m really excited about, though, is not having to juggle rentals for when we go somewhere long-distance with everyone. (I think it even has enough outlets for everyone to be able to run their electronics w/o killing their batteries, \o/.)

It was a quiet weekend—D’s father is still not back up to his usual strength, so D took BabyBoy down to help out w/farm-related stuff. There was homework to make up and I messed around in the kitchen enough to trash it a couple of times, but other than that, um… I bought a lot of candles? (Yankee Candle had a sale, even at their outlets, which just barely gets them into the realm of what I’m willing to pay for burning wax. I might have gone a little nuts, like 3 bags worth of nuts. But, sale!)

Also, I am still going with [livejournal.com profile] mini_wrimo and in the process, posted a short little start to a Darcy/Sam romance. I have no idea where I’m going with it, but sometimes that’s the most fun—when I’m just writing and seeing what’s coming up next. Anyway:
loving you whether whether, MCU, Darcy/Sam, PG-rated (for now.)

Did you purchase the infamous Chris Evans Mountain Lodge candle? *g*

I was about to ask the very same thing! Am very disappointed you could not find it.

Oh well. That's disappointing.

Yay for the new car! I need to get my act together to try bluetooth streaming of my podcasts and stuff. Right now I don't even remember to plug my phone into the jack to play anything, though!

Good luck with the writing!

Your new car sounds fantastic!

As does your bag of candles. I love the Yankee kind, but you're right, the cost is a bit up there.

YAY new car!

I finally had some days of writing this month, which made my Mini Nano heart happy.
