I very much enjoy good television. I've watched many shows and found favorite actors and actresses amongst the mix, people I follow from one show to another to continue to enjoy their work. This past year, I've had more opportunities to rest on the couch and enjoy tv shows while I'm here. We gave up TiVo and gained Hulu and that gave me a bunch of new options. I discovered network channel shows that I can watch on my Apple TV. And it's been great, and has me excited about the TV season to come.

This summer, I caught up on all of The CW's DC shows and that has made me glad for all the superhero fandom to be had, on both DC and Marvel MCU fronts. I shall be fully entertained by campy super hero dialog and darker gritty rescue stories with masks and weapons.

So sit back and enjoy my listing of what I want to watch! and comment with your plans!

A post shared by kristine beeson (@kdlb) on

Creating a birthday playlist is always a fun part of celebrating.  We turn it on during my birthday extravaganza, where we go out driving to various stores and restaurants. It's had the same two songs to start with for a while, amping me up as we leave, and it gets me excited and happy.

I pick songs that I love and new songs and songs that have captured my attention in the previous year. This year, Hamilton and Gilmore Girls and Nashville all were big influences to me, so they are represented. It was Buffy's 20th Anniversary just lately, so there's a few OMWF musical tracks.  I got some great geeky bands here at the end of the list.  I also try to make it not too heavy on songs that E doesn't like, so the less-country sounding songs from Nashville, and not too much of any one artist.

It was a good mix!

  • Ready to Go (US Mix), Republica, 1996
  • Are You Happy Now?, Michelle Branch, 2003
  • Let Me Go, Avril Lavigne feat. Chad Kroeger, 2013
  • Hopeless Romantic, Michelle Branch, 2017
  • All of Me (feat. Clare Bowen & Sam Palladio), Nashville Cast, 2017
  • Leave the Pieces, The Wreckers, 2006

Last week, I wrote about home renovations, phase 1. Let's see where we've come.

Much work went into the flooring over the course of the week. The entire downstairs is completely done with the that! The old trim has been nailed back up as well. Many of the big dings and problems in the walls have been patched. and more!

Let me take you on a little tour. I live in a condo with my husband, for the last 11+ years. When faced with the choice between buying something that suited us better or staying here a little while longer, we choose to hang on here and make some changes we could enjoy for the next few years that would also improve resalability.

Untitled

Primary thing that has been bothersome the entire 11 years is a countertop dividing the kitchen from the dining room. One of the two drawers wouldn't open due to the refrigerator, and one of the cabinets was super deep and that made it super hard to get things out of it! Plus, a large stain on the carpet has always had to be covered because the previous owner couldn't get it out (and an additional stain from spilling coffee since!)
