Before anything else, a moment of silence for Andrew McNaughton, stepson of Nick Wilford. Sadly he passed away recently and his funeral is today. The family has asked for people to release a red balloon today (11 a.m. GMT) in his memory but for those who can't you can do something representational like this red balloon designed by Carrie Butler, that I'm sharing on my blog today. Nick and family you are in my prayers.
What am I celebrating this week?
1. I won several ebooks from M. Pax's Realms Faire Event. Check comments in Wednesday's Stockade Brigade to see my best attempt at Old English and Laura's Castle Jumble is on it;s last day and is another fun event to check out.
2. I'm on my way to saving for a laptop/tablet. I'm keeping the faith.
3. Purchased a book for my mom with paypal cash I won. She had been wanting to get a T.D. Jakes book for a while but the prices for books in Jamaica right now is often criminal. Enjoy when TBD delivers mom!
4. I gave into temptation and purchased my first book for myself from TBD after buying the book my mom chose. But the true celebration is I found two House of Night series (P.C. Cast books) in the bargain bucket for under $10. I mean my mother got one book for under ten and I got two. The $9 (plus cents) total made me smile. Thank you no shipping charges. Hint, hint, Amazon (at least drop it from over $10 a book).
5. God has not only kept me but blessed me with new books, money to buy more books, and you delightful readers to share my thoughts and reads with. Thank you God. And all my blogging/online friends and readers.
6. Nano is still on, I'm catching up and will have a first draft by the end of the month. I mean who needs a weekend. *Twitches* Not me.
7. How could I forget! I saw Ender's Game on Monday! I loved it so much. Will give play by play next week.

My top 5 TV Shows
2. Grimm (NBC)
3. Arrow (CW)
4. Revolution (NBC)
5. The Walking Dead (AMC)
But have to add
6. Supernatural (CW)
7. The Blacklist (NBC)
1. Covert Affairs on USA - Season Finale is next week and I'm pumped. Annie is on FIRE.
2. Nikita on CW - Final Season starts November 22. Can't wait to see how it all goes down.
3. Sleepy Hollow on Fox - Finally a fresh horror series that has no vampires, werewolves or zombies. Also Ichabob rocks and finally a fantastic black actress to root for outside Scandal and/or a Drama TV series.
4. White Collar on USA - I sense Neal and Peter will come to a head. Also Moz helped deliver a baby!
5. Vampire Diaries on CW - Last season this would be in the top 5 but the doppelganger business is now out of control and getting on my nerves. A real turn off. Still a top ten show for me and one of the best CW has to offer.
6. The Tomorrow People on CW - Teleportation doesn't get enough play in television series. Also people with multiple powers :(and aren't touted as superheroes). And teens actually get shot, take that Marvel: Agents of Shield. Who is taking extreme actions against super powered people now? Ultra will kill anybody. No need to call head office to double check on that and if you defy, you die.
