Life: It Goes On - September 22

Well, we're happy in our house today after the Husker's big win yesterday. It's been a tough week for Husker Nation as we licked our wounds from last week's game and dealt with the fallout of a leaked tape of our coach speaking ill of fans who had booed the team and left a game early two years ago. It was a brouhaha that stirred up emotions but I'm hoping we have put it to bed now.

After what was probably our last hot day of the year, we've had lovely cool weather the past couple of days. It's the kind of weather that made sitting around the fire the other night with friends perfect.

Here's What I'm:

Listening To: Cole Porter at home but the kind of rock music in my car that has other drivers taking up a collection to get me some audio books to sooth the savage beast. I may be just a bit more aggressive under the influence of the kind of music I like to listen to when I'm driving.

Watching: De-Lovely about Cole Porter, starring Kevin Kline. Hence the music.

Reading: I've started Night Film on my Nook and continue to read A Thousand Days In Venice. I'm enjoying it so much that I'm not taking my other reads upstairs at night any more to read in bed.

Making: Crescent rolls filled with homemade pumpkin pie creme cheese and some made with Nutella for breakfast yesterday. Both so yummy!

Planning: On switching over to fall decor this week. It's been too nice to switch over until just now.

Grateful for: The hour I unexpectedly got to have with all three of my kids home at the same time last night. With their schedules, it rarely happens any more with out some planning.

Loving: Getting to wear shorts and sweaters in the same day.

Thinking: It's lovely to be able to sleep with the windows open at last.

Looking forward to: Ushering at the community playhouse in Lincoln this afternoon for "Spamalot."

What are you looking forward to this week?


  1. I really enjoyed A Thousand Days in Venice, too. Can't wait to hear what you think of Night Film.

  2. Ushering? That sounds fun! And rock music in the car? Awesome! Sounds like me! I'm hearing a lot about Night Film suddenly, and that it's very scary or something.

  3. Night Film looks amazing. I hope it's good! De-Lovely. I've heard of it but have never gotten around to it.

    Those crescent rolls look yummy!

    It's a really cloudy but not too cold Autumn equinox today. So today I'm mulling some wine and making stew :)Loving the beginnings of Fall!

  4. Spamalot?! How fun. And I am really amused by your admission of the aggressive music/driving side of your personality. :D
    happy fall!! But, really, for some reason, I'm ambivalent. i usually LOVE September but am finding myself already longing for Spring.

  5. Those crescent rolls sound amazing! I have A Thousand Days in Venice on my list - looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

  6. Night Film. Gosh, I enjoyed that one.

    What kind of rock music are you listening to in the car? I listen to books in the car but when I do listen to music it's always show tunes, usually whatever show my kids are currently in. You can't get too crazy with Consider Yourself from Oliver. LOL.

  7. Oh yummy, those crescent rolls looks delish! I've heard good things about Night Film, hope you're enjoying it!
