1. The Walking Dead. Mid-season finale is over and the gang is back together - Hurrah! The episode was a mixed bag for me, but I loved the ending. Negan relished touting his power over Alexandria as he waited for Rick to show up with goodies for him. Michonne realized that the Saviors far outnumbered her crew. Daryl finally escaped the Sanctuary - no more Easy Street for him! And Spencer got his comeuppance for his shady attempts to overrule Rick. Yep, Negan gutted him like a fish and it was pretty cool. I never cared much for Spencer, even though I can see why he didn't like Rick. As for Rosita, she's still acting stupidly - trying to shoot Negan with one bullet and missing - ugh! Now, Eugene has been taken away thanks to his bullet making skills - thanks a lot, Rosita! Oh, and Maggie is acting tough and taking apples away from Gregory up at the Hilltop - wow, what a leader! And, Carol and Morgan are still refusing to fight - will they ever find out about Glenn and Abraham?! The highlights were Michonne's speech to Rick, where he finally admitted that he knows that they do have to fight back against Negan; Daryl and Rick hugging - OMG! I teared up; and the gang finally being reunited and in fight mode - woo hoo! So, looks like the next half of the season will be about taking down Negan and his Saviors. I can't wait!! By the by, the new photo that AMC put up on their FB The Walking Dead page reminds me of Hamilton every time I see it:
2. Christmas cookies, bread, fudge, etc. Yep, this weekend, my sister and I will be baking up a storm. Every Christmas we make some yummy treats to give out to friends and family. I'm looking forward to it. We put on Christmas music, laugh, talk, bake, and taste-test. Should be a fun time.
Enjoy the weekend!! Happy reading!! Happy Holidays!!
