How Did You Spend Your Weekend?

So, blogster buds, how did you spend your weekend?  Did you have a good one?

Saturday we rented Gods of Egypt, which we enjoyed. It was fun. Didn't take itself too seriously.


Sunday we went to the ConCarolinas, a Sci-fi conference in Concord. We didn't have an opportunity to take in a lot of the workshops but we did attend the Ghostbusters vs Ghost hunters, which except for bad acoustics, was quite good. I found out Charlotte has a paranormal society that I wasn't aware of. I did have to chuckle when they started talking about ghosts, whether real or not, for sale on ebay, which is what Ghost For Sale is based on:)  And I bought a pretty fairy necklace.  All in all a good afternoon.  Now what about you? What did you do?



Vampire Island is on sale this week for .99¢ at Amazon.

  2. It sounds like you had a really good weekend. And ghosts for sale on ebay would have cracked me up too. I thoroughly enjoyed that book of yours.
    Here we watched it rain. The garden and I were happy. The cats? Not.

    1. The weekend was good. Thanks for the positive comments on Ghost:)
      Gardeners and gardens do enjoy the rain. Cats...not so much.

  6. My publisher has sent promotional items to that con, but I've never attended. Sounds like fun.
    I didn't have to do any yard work which is a big plus for me!

    1. Sounds like a productive, but relaxed weekend. I especially like the donuts from the mom n pop:)Many years ago we lived down the block from a mom and pop shop that made homemade. OMG. They were wonderful.

  11. It sounds like you had a great weekend. So....did you buy a ghostie?? The film looks hokey but fun. We went to a garden showing in Niagara On The Lake. There were 8 different homes showcasing their beautiful gardens which was lovely to see and something I can never afford since the homes go for over a million dollars due to the location.

    1. No ghostie buying for me. That pretty much sums up the film:) I love to go through gardens and homes. What fun!

  12. Just how does one sell a ghost on eBay?

    We picked up a new game this weekend and it's a lot of fun.

    1. Hi Diane,
      Never bought or sold one, but I'm assuming the selling process would be the same.
      Ooh fun. What game?

  13. Hi, Sandra!

    It was cool that you attended a sci-fi conference and learned more about paranormal phenomena. It's a good thing Gods of Egypt didn't take itself too seriously. Seems like every action adventure fantasy movie made in recent years has a wise cracking hero and quirky characters that offer comic relief.

    My weekend had a split personality. On Saturday evening, Mrs. Shady and I attended a company dinner party at a nice restaurant with a magnificent view of a marina. On the way home we got caught in heavy rain - a sign of things to come. Yesterday and last evening bands of heavy rain from tropical storm Colin swept through our area and today we expect torrential rain and wind. I hope we don't lose power down here.

    Have a wonderful day, dear friend Sandra!

  18. Sounds like you had a whole lot more fun than I had. I went looking for a new hot water heater, spent all the time and trouble, then found out that after my basement flooded, the pilot light went out. All I needed was for the pilot light to be relit, and my dear friend Scott did that for me. So much better than him having to change out the hot water heater. And I didn't even buy a pretty necklace or even eat out.

  19. It was a lovely rainy weekend here, so I spent it quietly and very leisurely...just reading and catching up on a couple of recorded TV shows and movies. Just me and my two furry rascals... :)
