A Few Things That I am Into/Doing
Here is what is on my plate right now:
I am currently reading She Came to Stay by Simone de Beauvoir. I learned about Simone de Beauvoir in a French female writers class that I took during my undergrad in Montana. Eric and I took the class one summer and it was a strange and intense experience. We had the class for two weeks of 12 hour days. We were overflowing with French femininity when it was all said and done.
I am about 2/3 of the way through the book and I don't like any of the characters, yet I can't put the book down. Overall it's about a volatile relationship as a metaphor for the tense time right before World War II came to France. I don't know how it ends, so if you read the book based on this and it ends terribly I cannot be held responsible.
I am also crocheting a blanket for a friend.
My quilt is just being finished off. My mom actually was kind enough to help me out with the bias tape. My sewing machine pooped out and hand sewing with an active little girl has proven very difficult. So now the project will have two makers. It should be complete by the end of the week! I am so excited!!!
We have just started the process of hunting for a new place to live. We will be moving within the next few months and it's time. We're getting a little crowded in our current digs. I am excited. I just wish we could afford to buy a home...maybe someday.
Eric and I are getting jazzed for the last season of Lost. Were you pulled into that series?
We've been listening to a few new musicians including: El Perro del Mar (Love is Not Pop...I particularly love the song Change of Heart), Wild Beasts (Two Dancers), Mika (The Boy Who Knew Too Much). What are you listening to?
We're still working on our massive project of children's videos for our friend Andy Mason.
What about you?
