what I'm into {December}

I saw a post like this from Nish last month and I thought I'd give it a go as the year draws to a close. And I'm thinking it would be a fun monthly addition around here.  What do you think?

on my nightstand.
There's a pile of books I don't pay enough attention to, two phone charger cables ((no idea why I need two)) and some dust.  The books are Devotional Classics and Sacred Rhythms.

what I want to read.
This list is endless, mostly because I'm such a terrible reader. I mean I rarely finish a book. But here are the latest ones catching my eye: Me to We: Finding Meaning in a Material World and  Code Switching.

TV show worth watching.
TV watching hasn't always been a high priority for me, but with my husband in school we have a few shows that we both enjoy.  We typically DVR them and spend an evening getting caught up.
  • Person of Interest: ((who doesn't love Jim Caviezel?)) I love the plot of this show.  It's about a guy who creates a system that tracks every person on the planet for the government and when the government scraps it and his desire to help folks in trouble because he knows when something is going to happen.
  • Parenthood: I think it's the best show on TV these days. It's authentic with family drama, yet not over-the-top like so many shows.
  • Bones: While we knew it was inevitable that Booth and Bones would end up together, did they really have to go so far as to have a baby?
  • Up All Night: We're not parents yet, so this may be a grossly inaccurate account to a suburban couple's experience with becoming parents.  But I do love Christina Applegate and Will Arnett.
movie I've seen.
Crazy Stupid Love. I think I liked it.  A week later, I'm still trying to decide how I felt. I love Steve Carell and I'm probably going to make some enemies by admitting this, but I don't care for Ryan Gosling so it balanced out.  I will say Gosling was more tolerable than usual in this one.
We also watched several Christmas movies over the past week: The Holiday, Love Actually, Home Alone 2

in my kitchen.
Lately, we've been cooking with a lot of lentils, black beans, sweet potatoes, curry and onion....not all together, but they're definitely staples. Soups have also become a fairly common meal for us as the temps get cooler.

in my ears. 
Lots of Christmas music...most of which I downloaded for free thanks to Noisetrade!  Some of my favorites include A Neighborly Christmas, Ten out of Tenn Christmas, and Lo-Fi Christmas.
As far as non-Christmas tunes, I'm listening to an audiobook. And not just any audiobook, I gave in and started listening to Harry Potter ((never read a book or have seen a movie)).
