August in Review - The Dainty Squid

August in Review

Sunday, September 02, 2012

 new (to me) movies I watched:
Weeds. I'm a little late to the Weeds obsession but, uh, I watched four seasons in one week if that tells you anything about how much I've been enjoying it. I'm currently all caught up on what Netflix has to offer (six seasons) and I'm waiting for Kevin to catch up so we can watch the remaining two seasons together. I'm obsessed!
Paper Man. This movie made me feel all sorts of strange emotions, but I suppose that just means it's a great movie.
The Big White. Great plot, great actors, great soundtrack. Needless to say, I really liked this movie.

a few of my favorite posts from August:

exciting happenings on and offline:
• I took a step to getting over my ridiculous anxiety by taking morning bike rides. I'm pretty excited to report I've still been taking my morning rides and it's getting a little less scary each time!
• We went camping with Elycia and Ivan! Elycia and I both posted a photo an hour of the time but there is also a video coming too!

a tiny (and incomplete!!) list of things I'm thankful for this month:
Dang That's Good Butterscotch Rootbeer Oh my gosh, yum Local roadside attractions • flowers • beautiful weather • four perfect cats • Lloyd, Carl and all the other awesome strays who visit • auctions • Elycia, who is there when I need an emergency skype date •  living so close to the beach • sunshine • film • mushrooms • cool, sunny days that feel like fall • spotify • a clean house • new books • family time • estate sales, especially where the previous owner was the same size as me! • my tattoo artist • instant film

I'd like to know how it's September already! This year is flying by. But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited to get the month started. September might just be one of my favorite months!

  1. This post was really inspiring. I'm working on a post about summer accomplishments and it's good to see that more experienced bloggers share my ideas.


  2. Was a lovely august, I also like the last months of the year :D

  3. Weeds.. that show is amazing. Although, it's ending this season.. there are only 3 episodes left and not much has happened, sort of disappointed.

  4. I was so into Weeds for the first seven seasons. But after watching the first episode of season 8, I refuse to finish it. They are just such awful people.

  5. welcome to the wonderful world of weeds! its one of my favorite tv shows ever & we are in a constant weeds marathon in my house. my favorite episode is dead in the nethers.

  6. I found Weeds when there were 3 or 4 seasons on Netflix. Let me say, it is so much better to watch it marathon style. Watching one episode a week is such a let down b/c the episodes are SOOO SHORT!

    I hope your doggy brother is feeling better!

  7. August was the month I discovered your blog, and I'm so addicted. I can't wait to see your posts in September. :)

  8. I can not believe August is gone!
    I hope September will be even better!

  9. Great post! You sure had an eventful month. I can't believe it's already September. This summer flew by.

    Can't wait to see your posts for September.
