New Blog? Maaaybe.

Some recent conversations of the past few weeks on Facebook, Twitter, Chat and elsewhere have given me a new idea for a blog.

I never update this thing and am in the process of building my own Web site - long overdue, but finally at least purchased the URL - and I want to have a more "hobby-based" blog to post with it. So, I think I am going to kill this one and make a new one that focuses strictly on books and music. Facebook mostly keeps track of those things for me, but I would be able to brand this one myself.

We'll see how it goes, or if I ever actually get around to doing it. Still, I am more excited about this attempt at blogging than I have been about the medium in a while.

Fall is coming up too fast

Wow. Summer goes by much too quickly when you move three times, then spend two more weeks moving other people's stuff after all of your stuff is moved in.

How is it already the middle of September?

Six weeks after moving, life is slowly, slowly starting to get back to a steady routine. For the past six weeks, we have had tons of visitors and house updates: Neil's parents coming up to help paint and clean and move, friends coming up to see the new house, installing air conditioning, a new furnace, new carpet, painting three rooms upstairs, de-wallpapering rooms, etc. It has been a blur of changes and non-stop work.

But things are inevitably slowing down. And fall is here. Neil and I bought our first pumpkin over the weekend. Can't wait for baked pumpkin seeds again, easily one of my favorite things about fall.

Busy weekends have meant slower weekdays, and I have finally started to catch up on reading. And television, like BSG (which I am completely addicted to), Burn Notice and Glee, my three latest obsessions.

So now, instead of spending all of my time moving and painting and organizing and unpacking... I spend all of my time reading and watching television. Really, I think it is a shift for the best. heh.
