Hurry Up, Fall.

We had a taste of Fall-like weather this weekend. It was fantastic to feel something below 90ºF. It's jumping back into the 90s this week, and then slowly cooling off. I'm so excited. Though, the worst part of it is, waking up every morning feeling like I got hit by a truck. Not to mention, my allergies have been crazy these past two weeks, so I knew it was coming. I just never know what it is until the cooler weather hits. /old person

In other news, I've been reading like crazy, and it's nice. I read the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, and it was terribly hilarious. 's review on Good Reads is the perfect way to describe it. I suggest you go read it.
I also tried to read The Dog Stars by Peter Heller, while intriguing, the way it's written drives me nuts. That doesn't mean it's bad writing, it's just hard for me to figure out who's saying what and when they're talking. I got about a fourth of the way through before I had enough.
Along with those, I started reading the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. You know, One for the Money, Two for the Dough, etc? They're actually pretty good.  I'm having to slow down, because another coworker is reading them, too, and she's only on five.

I've also started knitting again. YAY. Thanks to the cooler weather, something sparked inside of me, and I'm attempting a pair of socks...again. This time, it's going a bit smoother. I'm using some Mary Jane's Attic that I've had since 2008, so it's well deserving some use. I'm too lazy to take pictures right now, and so this won't be a picture-less post, have this, courtesy of the internet:

GO DAWGS. 2-0!


  1. Can't wait to see how your socks turn out! :)

    I also have tried to read the Stephanie Plum series, but have only managed to go as far as buy the first book off the clearance rack at Walmart...

  2. Stephanie Plum...that's the one they made a movie about, right? I should check those out.

  3. EAT MORE (local) HONEY. /new age spiel.

    I'm trying to read more new things instead of rereading my bookshelf for the 100th time. Thank goodness for libraries.

  4. I kind of forgot about my blog (and thus the blogs I follow) for a while, so have a late comment. ;) I read a few of the Stephanie Plum series, maybe through 5 or 6, and eventually gave up. It just started feeling repetitive, and I thought the number of cars she went through was getting ridiculous, heh. :) Plus I got distracted by A Song of Ice and Fire and a dissertation.
