SFS September

SFS September
$0 all round
I bought nothing, and finished nothing this month, so that is easy to add

I have been working a lot, found out nothing important about what happens when the store closes. I switch between hoping I get transferred , or starting over and have decided to embrace whichever happens to me.
Either way I’m really going to miss seeing everyone at the store.
I haven’t been stitching quite as much as planned the last couple weeks as my nephew will be leaving on the weekend and we are getting determined to beat Arkham Horror. (note; we finally beat it last night)  I’m enjoying having a game night so much.
Here’s two weeks worth of the Halloween Sampler and last weeks progress on Cindy, got nothing done on her this week due to game nights.

As for what I watched.

Critical Role - D&D with voice actors.  I am so obsessed with this, take everything I said about Titan’s Grave and double it. If you like old time radio shows and fantasy this is perfect for you. I have been watching every chance I get. It’s first 12 are on you tube, and up to 24 episodes on Geek and Sundry website and at the shortest, they are 3 hours long. They are live on Thursdays nights, but I haven’t caught up enough to do that yet.

The Scorch Trials - I really enjoy this series and will read the rest of the books when the last movie comes out, it’s full of twist and turns, though when I think about it all the one was about was  the protagonists finding a group of people and trying to decided if they were trustworthy, NOPE and then repeat.

It’s been an eventful week for me, the store was told on Saturday that it will be closing November 5th, I don’t know what this will mean for me yet, either a transfer to Vernon, 60km away or finding a new job in town. The transfer is unlikely to happen but if it does that’s a long drive especially in winter, however I’d keep my current salary and benefits.  If I get a new job that will mean a cut in pay as much as in half and possibly no benefits, but I’d get to stay in town, there are positive and negatives to both options but I won’t know for a week or two yet what I’ll be offered.
So that was Saturday, on Sunday I started my weeks holiday.  I took this week so I could be free to work at the fair.  Set up and judging went well, I run the fruit division.  I also entered the Game of Thrones bookmarks, Music and a couple photos. I won 2nd on the bookmarks and my pic of Helmcken falls
, so successful fair for me, Really happy about the photo, I put it in the hardest class to win as it’s for experience photographers and nature always has a lot of beautiful entries. I also got and honourable mention on the Lightening shot.
I did get some stitching done amongst all of that, Cindy’s one over one is slowly progressing
And I got my weeks block of Halloween finished by Tuesday this week

As for what I watched.
Critical Role 

Heroes -  S01 E01-05 This was on my Netflix watch list but I wasn’t planning on getting to it this soon, but they’ve been advertising the new series a lot lately so I thought I’d refresh my memory.

Love, Wedding, Marriage - A lovely little rom-com about a newlywed marriage counsellor who’s parents are separating 

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit - This was a lot better than I expected, I’ve been a fan of Tom Clancy’s Ryan books since Hunt for Red October came out and it seems like they were completely ignoring that character and just using the name for this movie, and while, yes it was a bit more “James Bond”  than Ryan should be, it wasn’t as much as the trailers made it out to be. It was a good solid espionage thriller, I’ll have to get it to add to the collection

Airplane Vs. Volcano - Well that was stupid, but kind of fun at the same time.

Quiet Week

As weeks go, this has been a quiet one, just work and regular life stuff. Next week I will be on holiday, but it’s a working one, I took the week off so I could work at the fair, which is mainly set up Wednesday and Thursday and take down Sunday which leaves the rest of the days for stitching
I finished another block on the Frosted Pumpkin Halloween Sampler so the one block per week schedule seems to be working fine for me.
Cindy has had progress, which is a little hard to see with those teeny tiny stitches, hope to have more obvious changes next week
As for what I watched.
Critical Role - Another series from Geek and Sundry, this one is a  live stream of voice actors playing D&D

Doctor Who S07 E12 - S08 E12. That’s right I watched all of season 8 this week, I have now caught up and can’t wait for season 9 to start. Love Peter Capaldi as the doctor. 

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - The civil war and vampires, what’s not to enjoy.

After - A physiologic thriller or horror or something, two people are in a bus crash and wake up as  the only  people left  in their town, not bad, not great, just a typical low budget movie.
