The Serialist

creepy stairs to our apartment
Thursday I told you how I felt about September, but maybe I spoke too soon. Sure, it isn't autumn, but at least the heat has sort of broken, and the thought of turning on my oven doesn't make me spontaneously bust out in sweats.

As you probably can tell, I'm a big fan of lists. This past weekend all I got to cross of my list was  chili, but it sure was good. I didn't even use a recipe! I was in a crazy cooking mood and ended up churning out Sunday dinner, and the worst red velvet cupcakes, as well. Ah well, two out of three hits ain't bad I say.

There are definite patterns that make my life easier. I find when I want to make changes, having an action plan where one thing flows into another is best. Jared's got a cold, and I have the baby version, so I think a good batch of chicken noodle soup tonight will do the trick. Chili inspires soup inspires, who knows, probably not much ;) I said the heat had sort of broken, lets not get crazy here people.

Last night Jared and I went to the bookstore and picked up some new reads....all from the children's section.We're reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone out loud with one another, which has already turned out to be great fun. I also picked up a copy of The Mysterious Benedict Society, which looks great. Being honest, I picked it because I instantly loved the cover, plus its a part one. Who can resist a part one? I remember being young and being so disappointed when a book I loved ended and I had to say goodbye to those characters. Every good book should have a requisite sequel, I think. The exact opposite with great movies, which is weird. Anyway, I digress. We also bought the audiobook for Enders Game, another great children's series if you haven't read it.

Speaking of audiobooks, have you listened to the Harry Potter series on tape? My parents used to check them from the library and it was the highlight of every car ride. I highly recommend.
