I’ve seen other bloggers do a variation of what they are currently up to, so I thought I’d do the same thing since often it doesn’t fit anywhere else.



Slowly reading ‘Middlesex’ because it’s one of those books that I’ve been meaning to read for a while, but for some reason is not really grabbing my attention, so I may switch to something else.  I’ve actually been thinking of reading some old favorites like ‘The Hobbit’ and then maybe revisiting ‘The Dresden Files,’ which I had done before, but got sidetracked so never made it through all of them again.  Yeesh, my brain can’t focus on anything can it?


As far as television series go, we’re still watching ‘Fringe’ as well as a handful of other shows now that it’s fall.  We watched the first two episodes of ‘Gotham’ and are going to watch one more before we decide whether to continue or not.  We haven’t been super impressed with it so far… a lot of overacting (especially by Jada Pinkett Smith) and way too many characters were introduced in the first episode, and just… meh.  I’m watching ‘Parenthood’ and also have started watching my way through ‘Gilmore Girls’ since it’s finally on Netflix!  I used to watch it with my mom and now it feels super weird that I am currently the age that Lorelai (Lauren Graham) was in the beginning, which is really bizarre.  So now I’m watching it from an entirely different perspective…

We haven’t watched a lot of movies lately, but there have been a few. We watched ‘Pacific Rim’ and while the story wasn’t amazing and there was some definite cheesiness, the special effects were fantastic and worth watching. Then we watched a movie called ‘Clear History,’ which had some fairly funny moments and a surprising cast, but I probably wouldn’t buy it or anything.  It was an okay Friday night movie, though.


While I don’t like the fancy pumpkin drinks from coffee shops, we have enjoyed some Pumpkin beer, Pumpkin cider and pumpkin butter, which was really good on French toast when I made it.  I love me some pumpkin butter.


Fall.  It isn’t too cold yet, but I kind of like that crisp feeling in the air.  I like the colors, the falling leaves, the pumpkins and cider.  Maybe I should be spending more time in sweaters and slippers sipping apple cider and reading books while watching seasonally appropriate movies.  I also want to take the kids to at least one orchard before time runs out to do so!  Apple cider donuts are calling my name and you can’t beat a good hay ride, ride?

Thinking About

A lot.  At the moment I’m thinking about traveling with kids, but I’ve got a lot of other things on my mind as well… some of which I don’t really feel like sharing.  My brain has been a very busy place lately, though, and there is a lot I’m trying to figure out.
