It is now officially fall, as of last Saturday. Hurray! After how hot this past summer was here in IL... I am ready for the cool fall weather. It's been mostly in the low 70s and upper 60s - heaven after months of 90s and 100! I'm slowly starting to get out my fall clothing, enjoying being able to drink tea, and wearing all my fun scarves.
Sister 2 has been reading Les Miserables for school, and so on my last trip to the library I picked up the original cast highlights from the musical CD. I'd gotten it a while ago and fell in love, but it wasn't until this time around that the Les Miz love spread to other members of the family. I've never seen the musical performed before... but I am SO excited for the film adaption coming out in December! I think that it will end up being an incredible production, and I am eager to hear how the music turns out.

There is sadness and potential tears on the TV horizon... tomorrow will be the airing of the fifth episode of this seasons Doctor Who, and we will see the final departure of the Ponds. Amy and Rory have been around for two and a half-ish seasons now, and I've spent longer with them than any of the other companions. I am excited for the new companion at Christmas.... but yeah. This is going to be sad.
On a happier TV note - season two of Once Upon a Time starts on Sunday! OUaT really hit its stride about mid-season last year, and from what I've seen and read, it sounds like they haven't dropped the ball on this one. We'll get to see Storybrooke with the magic returned and several new characters like Captain Hook, Mulan and Sleeping Beauty. I am quite thrilled to discover what will happen next.
