A Reading Life...hosted by Michelle at The True Book Addict, and also inspired by Lisa at Lit and Life--Life: It Goes On...is a meme where we get to talk about other stuff we're doing in our lives along with reading!
Listening To: Not much this week, unfortunately :(
Books finished last week:
Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion.
- The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova for R.I.P. VIII

I still have a lineup of zombie movies in my Netflix queue...28 Days Later just arrived and the original Dawn of the Dead is next in line!
Still watching zombie and horror movies. :)
I made stew, bread, apple butter, grilled corn, and mulled some wine to bring in the Fall season on Sunday. I shared it with some friends and it was amazing!
Tuscan Tortellini later this week. My devoted hubby is headed off on a work trip for 3 weeks and leaving me alone with the little guy for a bit. So my friend Stacie has agreed to "adopt" us throughout the 3 weeks and I've decided to make her and her family this wonderful hearty Fall soup :)
The cool nights, Fall, and great family and friends to share it with.
Looking forward to:
World War Z was quite good and scary in 3D!
I'm not looking forward to my hubby being gone for 3 weeks but am looking forward to fun times with friends that are planning some extra things with Gabe and me :)
We visited a local place that has huge gardens, a lake, waterfalls, and fish today with friends. It's getting close to closing time for outdoor places like this. So it was nice to get out and enjoy the mild sunny weather and run around!
