Loves: books, cooking, family and being outside.
As a book lover, I read almost every genre and I enjoy venturing into unfamiliar territory. Being a library volunteer, I am constantly bringing home stacks of novels to add to my overflowing library at home. I read a lot of YA novels and children's novels as I am currently a substitute teacher who is always talking books with the students.
The Day of the Dead has always fascinated me and when I saw this was coming out at the theatres, I wanted to go. I'm glad that I didn't go. After watching this at home, I would have been a mess. I was on the corner of my couch for part of the movie and the tears were falling as the movie came to an end. What a fantastic movie! My husband watched it with me and as I got up to shut it off, I looked over at him and he was wiping his eyes. I asked him if he was crying and he said that it was a really good movie. Now, that says something!
On our vacations to Mexico, I have just started to buy figures of The Day of the Dead. There are so many to choose from down there. This year, I came across this one in a tiny shop, hidden behind some bowls. The woman asked me if I knew what scene was portrayed by the figures and I told her that is what caught my eye. I look at my figures and now think of this movie.
