The Small Things - June Edition

My happies for this month...

Alice in Wonderland - On Vinyl

A couple weeks ago the hubby and I hit up a little used record store while on a roadtrip. There I discovered a previously unknown fact: Back in the day they made audiobooks on vinyl. I snagged the entirety of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, read by a gentleman with a wonderful British accent. And it cost me a whole dollar. There's something so cozy and inviting about the old record pops and crackles in the background of the narration. The perfect summer version of curling up with a hardcover and a warm fire.





Veronica Mars

Yes, I got ridiculously excited when I found out about the Kickstarter, and yes, my husband and I promptly pledged. Veronica Mars has always been a guilty pleasure. It came out the same year we got married and many a night was spent watching it together. I was almost as upset about the series ending as I was when Amy Sherman-Palladino stopped writing Gilmore Girls episodes. In honor of the upcoming film, we've been watching the series on DVD. I'm currently awaiting the arrival of my Amazon shipment of season one, since a very inconsiderate library patron is literally YEARS overdue on the last 2 discs. Where are the library ninjas when you need them? They could learn a few things from Mars Investigations... 


Summer

Summer is here! Maybe not according to your calendar, but it is by mine. My reason for loving summer has nothing to do with the hot weather (I prefer fall, when the temperature is reasonable.) What makes the current season awesome is that school is out--and as a homeschooling family that means mommy gets a break along with the kids. It also means I don't have to feel guilty about sleeping in in the morning if I'm up writing (or reading) until midnight the previous night.





What about you? What's got you smiling this month?
