What I'm Into: September 2013

School and the after-school activities have resumed this month, so I'm back in business.

I think I may start charging by the mile.  The schedule is shaking out so that I have somewhere to drive to for drop-off or pick-up at least three nights a week.  When I have kids in the car, they want to listen to the radio, and they have a knack for preferring songs that I do not like.

When I am in the car alone, I listen to this:

and this:

I went back to the library for that Punch Brothers again.  I like it so much that I think I'm going to buy it.  Ditto for the Avett Brothers.

After suffering some Maisie Dobbs fatigue last month, I went back to the third installment and loved it.  Like, want to go check them all out and read them one after another loved it.  But I am going to take my time, if only because there are so many other books I want to read!

After not really loving Northanger Abbey (and feeling weird about not loving one of Jane's books), I am happy to say that I am enjoying Mansfield Park more than Northanger Abbey.  And thanks to the dog, I will probably be buying the library's copy!

Have you been to Glennon's website?  After I read Carry On, Warrior, I checked out her site.  I think I want to live there.

Say hello to my little friend!  (Please tell me you're hearing Al Pacino's voice when you read that...yes?)  The vet told me that she (the dog, not the vet) is about five pounds overweight. I think I've met more neighbors in the year we've had Honey than in the previous seven years because she and I are out walking every day.  

When I'm not driving children or walking the dog, and I actually want to watch some TV, I find myself up against College Football.  This is my husband's thing--his favorite time of year, his favorite thing to watch.  Fortunately, the season is about one-third through, and the games are usually only broadcast on Thursday nights and Saturdays.

On other nights of the week, I have a few shows that I'm excited about.  I love this show on Monday nights:

Last Tuesday, I made a point to sit down and watch The Mindy Project.  I really like this one, too.

And I don't usually watch 10:00 shows (because I don't like to stay up until 11:00), so I may add Elementary to the DVR schedule.

That's what I've been into for September.

I love brothers of the Punch and Avett persuasion. I'm excited about the new Avett album! I hear good things about Elementary but I haven't watched it yet.

Thanks for linking up with What I'm Into!

So many people love Momastary. I guess I'm going to have to take the plunge and check her kids are all but grown though; so I sometimes wonder if I will fit in. Amy
