Happy Last-Week-of-November-and-Where-The-Heck-Did-the-Year-Go?!?! In all seriousness, I hope everyone has a wonderful and bountiful Thanksgiving. As it is the week of Thanksgiving, shows are a little on the scarce side, especially compared to last week. That’s a good thing for me as I’m fighting off a cold at the moment. Not the best time to get some minor congestion but I’ve been surrounded by sick people so I guess it was inevitable? I blame the weather.

Can you believe it’s almost time for Thanksgiving again? Wasn’t it just March or something? I can’t believe it. Also, this is my first year having to do a gluten free Thanksgiving so that means we are testing out some recipes to see which is the best. Also. we made a sourdough starter last night and I’m really looking forward to having some sourdough bread! I’ve missed that a lot. Also, cornbread stuffing and gluten free pie crusts! Before I get ahead of myself with food, let’s talk music for the week. There’s a lot of sold out shows this week (7!) but a lot of other options in case you’re a last minute planner like a lot of people I know. No excuses. Go support the scene!

I’d by lying right now if I said I didn’t have “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift stuck in my head right now. It’s kind of an awesome little mantra I have going on right now. I spent my Friday night in Pioneertown at Pappy and Harriet’s to see Transfer and it was pretty amazing. I stayed the night in a cabin up there and ate at this wonderful little place called The Natural Sisters Cafe on my way out of town. I have a 4 Day badge secured for Comic Con next year thanks to a friend who got in the room during pre-registration (I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have been called in) so, score! And to top it off, after having a serious case of the dropsies for the last 4 days, I somehow scratched my eye. That might be a little TMI but it’s a first for me. Oh, and I’m pretty happy to have Tuesday off from school so I can catch up on my art homework. So, that’s what’s new in Amanda-land. Enough about me though because there is a lot of music this week!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween and Halloween weekend. I had probably one of the best Halloweens ever and I’ve still got that inner glow. I’m hoping to maintain that for as long as possible. Also, I’m loving the colder weather and the bit of rain we had. I heard it’s supposed to get back up to 80 degrees again this week though. Can we just have winter already? Speaking of winter, how many of us really needed that extra hour we got? I sure did and it was a wonderful excuse to catch up on sleep. Ok, enough yammering from me….

So, last week was kind of full and not in the show going kind of way. I hurt my shoulder in dance class and thankfully today it’s way less sore (and crunchy) than it was when I hurt it on Thursday. Saturday was a loooooooong day at the barn which resulted in me passing out by 10:30pm (I’m getting old!) and yesterday was a “get stuff done) kind of day. Whew. Today I am actually at Disneyland with my mom, which is pretty exciting with all the decorations. I’m hoping to actually get out this week. Fingers crossed!
