The Week in Review is where I combine Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post and It’s Monday! What are you reading? If you have never joined in on these meme’s you can check them out by clicking on the meme and it will take you to the host blog.
So I am going to be brave and show my first animation, it’s really quick cause it’s only 6 seconds. Our next one will be longer and more elaborate and it’s worrying me!!! I have an idea of what I am going to do but it will be the first time I have actually put together a whole scene since starting my classes. I have made things but never a background, etc!!!! We have to create a scene and have as many things as we can animated and it will be like a loop kind.
Okay so I think it looks horrible so be nice! The lighting isn’t right so the red ball looks orange. 🙂 So not sure if the sound came out but what happens is I start with a ball, it turns into Pennywise, he chuckles, a shot rings out, then a hole appears in his forehead and like a balloon he deflates into a blood drop that turns back into the ball. LOL 🙂[WPGP gif_id=”19778″ width=”600″]
Let me know if this doesn’t work.
So the weather here is pretty up and down. We had one day that the high was only 66 and the low was in the low 40’s…ahem that is not fall weather!! Finally it is back in the 70’s and 80’s! I am not looking forward to colder weather even if I love OCTOBER! 🙂
What I watched
This month I have totally gorged myself on tv for some reason…lol. Normally I just use TV as a background noise playing my favorite shows I have seen hundreds of times but this month I have been watching things I actually have to pay attention to as I haven’t seen them. Still watching Once Upon a Time but its losing it’s appeal as I read season 6. So I have only watched a few episodes of that season and think I will probably continue in small doses. On Acorn TV I started as Australian drama called A Place to Call Home and boy is it dramatic but something about those accents seem to draw me do their drama more than American drama…lol…cause I also started watching 800 Words again and it too is a Australia Drama and I am really enjoying both though there are some characters I would like to smack especially in APTCH!!!
I need to watch the first episode of Manifest and see what it’s about and then in October some shows I am curious about (The Rookie) starts so I am sure I will continue my TV binging but maybe not as much…lol.

Books read last week
I was a reading fool this week!!!! Between working on my class projects or messing on the computer it allowed for lots of audio time. Then I managed to get in a print book and ebook! Hopefully this mojo continues into October!!
- In Your Shoes – Not my normal read and extremely sad in spots but had a cute ending. Overall it was okay.
- Shadow Dancing – Love this series and this was a very good one!!!!!
- The Cat of Baskerville – not a favorite series but a likable one and I enjoyed this.
- Hooked on Ewe – Quickly becoming a favorite series this is just book two but I really liked it. Oh heck I just really like those Scottish accents on the audio…lol. 😉
- Pawprints and Predicaments – Such a cute cozy series and now I am ready for the one above that I hauled. 🙂
