Well it almost got cold in Houston, so I decided to take advantage and wear some longer sleeves. I wish this weather would just make up it’s mind.
I love prints, so when I saw this vintage dress at the thrift store I just had to get it! I already owned this awesome fabric for the head scarf and together I thought it was a great look.
Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and my family had made plans for dinner at my Grandad’s, but yesterday he fell and broke his hip, so now our plans have all been postponed.
It was pretty scary to see him in so much pain. Thankfully I work as a caregiver to him, so I, as well as my mom and sister, were there only minutes after the fall.
This was the whole reason I moved back to Houston…to be with and help my Grandad. My Grandmother passed away this time last year, so it’s been a strange time being in this city without her and I can only imagine how that’s affected Granddaddy, after all they were married for over 60 years (unbelievable!).
In my family, on both my mom and dad’s sides, every event pretty much revolves around the Grands, so this season is already proving to be pretty tough for me. My Grandad is the last of my Grands and I’m really struggling with this. However, I am so so grateful to be able to be spending so much time with him now. There are so many distractions in life, the only thing that really matters are the relationships you have with people and the memories you make with them. Time is precious, don’t let it slip away from you.
Theory: Odile is adopted (and has no magical powers)
I’ve thought this for too long not to talk about it. Listen:
-We only ever see Odile shape-shift in the presence of Rothbart, so he could be the one performing the spell on her.
-We never see Odile perform any form of magic when Rothbart isn’t with her.
-When the skunks attack her, she does nothing to defend herself. If she had magic, why not use it?
-If she is Rothbart‘s biological child, why hasn’t she inherited his magic?
-Although the world of the story is filled with magic, Daniel’s mother wants him to find a wife so he can have children, so it is implied that two people are needed to make a child. If Odile is Rothbart‘s biological child, who is her other parent? Why is that other parent never mentioned? (And I don’t see Rothbart flirting or anything.)
So my conclusion is that Rothbart somehow found a magic-less (abandoned, orphaned?) small girl and decided to adopt her.
