What I'm Into: August

I'm linking up with Leigh Kramer again to share what I'm into this month.  I don't feel like I've been doing anything but reading, and that's not at all a bad thing!  But let's see what else I've been doing.

After borrowing several CDs from the library last month, I really haven't been searching out new tunes. The Punch Brothers CD is one I want to borrow again.

Chris Thile, who played mandolin for Nickel Creek (before they broke up) is in Punch Brothers, and I really like their sound.  I did borrow the latest Vampire Weekend from the library, and I thought it was okay.  I'm not rushing out to purchase it.

We really haven't been watching any television in the evenings.  The only fun thing we've been doing is watching AFV after dinner.

The home videos really do begin to seem like they're all the same after a while, but they're just so funny that it doesn't matter.  A good gut-busting laugh is a nice way to unwind from the day.


We borrowed The Incredible Burt Wonderstone from the Redbox last weekend.  It was cute.  Much better than the previews would have you believe.


I'll be posting my latest and greatest reads on the 15th, but I decided to give the Maisie Dobbs series a rest for a while.  I tend to go overboard on book series, and I felt like I was burning out.


I am going to Rhinebeck again this October, and I am determined to knit the yarn I bought last year into something that I can wear this year.  I've been on ravelry looking for a pattern, and I am all ready to cast on.

So what have you been up to?  Are you looking forward to the return of "regular TV" next month?

I really enjoy Punch Brothers but I have not yet listened to the album you listed. I need to get caught up on their work!

Thanks for linking up with What I'm Into!
