Geeklings! I have returned. I would have been here yesterday but I took a most savage nap when I intended to write and woke up kind of delirious. Well, that’s not entirely truthful. I woke up to my brother in-law calling me wanting to know if I was alright. I seriously had no idea who or where I was at that point and some how was able to ask him “why”. Apparently I sent a text, while I was napping mind you, that I was “on my way”. On my way where? Not sure. But I was heading there. Needless to see Paul and Jen were a bit concerned when I never arrived there. I seriously have no memory of sending that text. That’s a first.
This all brings us to today to a post that won’t be very long because my heart is full. I spent two hours today sitting in my chair, with Hudson the Cat on my lap, finishing the Deathly Hallows. I cried three different times (and by cry I mean choked up and one or two rolled down my cheek not shoulder heaving sobs), laughed out loud once at something Ron said (which I can’t remember for the life of me right now), and just felt my heart fill with joy of it all and the sadness that it was over.
I want to talk about the series but today isn’t the day for that as it’s too fresh. I want to process it and put thought into my post which means you’ll probably see it on Wednesday. I pulled a lot from this go around and the books touched me in a way they haven’t previously, and I want to find the right words for that. These books are special (which is an understatement). And while the last few times I read them I understood that, but there was something about this time that made me feel that.
Before I go to watch Game of Thrones which will give me the exact opposite in feels, I want to leave you with a quote. One, because it’s wonderful. Two, because I’m cheesy. Three, because… I don’t want to say good-bye just yet. This one got me pretty good when I read it and it just encompasses that feeling I have right now. Good night Geeklings. Until tomorrow
