I tend to approach things quite literally.
Five minutes to me means five actual minutes. No more, no less, so when I first starting doing these Currently posts, I struggled a smidge because I wanted to answer every question in that same manner. What drink am I downing right now? What non-guilty pleasure am I involved in at this precise second? Does blogging count? It was a conundrum to be sure, so I opted to loosen up a bit, change my perspective, and relax on my very literal approach. I’m sure there’s a life lesson in there somewhere, although I’m not ready to tackle it head on, even if my skull is thick.
Today, we’re focusing on what’s Currently happening in my little world and by that, I mean the last handful of weeks. How’s that for improvement?
Current Book: Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. I’m reading this one at the Hubby’s request. I’m only a handful of pages in, which means it’s too soon for me to make a judgment call.
Current Music: I’m digging Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson. I can’t help but move my size fives and shake my little bitty hips to this. slick. beat. Oops, wrong artist.
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: living in my pajamas all day this past Saturday. To be fair, there was a shower and a pajama swap midway through the day. Also, I never left the house, so it’s allowed.
Current Drink: wine, lots and lots of wine, which by the way is in no way related to the Great Pajama Day. My local grocery store, Nature’s Bin (think Trader Joes but better), started doing wine and food pairings on the first Friday of the month, which means grocery shopping just got a whole lot boozier.
Current Food: a recent brunch with the family included a crepe bar with a side of toppings, fillings, homemade whipped cream and mimosas. AH-MAH-ZING!
Current Favorite Show: the Hubby and I are back on Breaking Bad. We’re just started Season Three and since he’s headed back to school after a lovely seven days off, it’ll probably be another three months before we finish it. Le sigh.
Current Wish List: another week of downtime with the Hubby, although this is one fantasy which won’t be coming true no matter how many stars I wish upon. Damn school in a different state. Grumble, grumble.
Current Needs: to get back to the gym. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, I didn’t work out at all last week, and my sanity misses it.
Current Indulgence: rekindling an old school video game obsession. If I suddenly stop blogging, it’s because I’ve been sucked into the Legend of Zelda. Link and I are now on a quest for the Triforce. You understand.
Current Triumphs: hanging the picture on the right, after acquiring it many months ago. It’s fun and boozy, just like me. Those might even be pajamas she’s wearing.
Current Bane of Existence: I’ve got a tickle in my throat and I don’t mean the good kind. I’m fighting off the plague, which while not great, allows me time to lounge around the house in pajamas all day, while playing massive amounts of video games.
Current Blessing: I’m here, I’m happy and relatively speaking I’m healthy. That’s always a blessing.
Current Excitement: the Hubby cleaned out a storage spot in our cold dark basement in order to make me a proper root cellar. It’s official. I am a full-blown Hippy, with a penchant for snake skin pumps.
Current Links: This link and I need your help. It’s the story of a three-year old boy named Weston, who needs to gain weight in his struggle with Cystic Fibrosis. His mother started a social media campaign and is asking us to share food pictures on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and tag them #EatWithWest #ChubbyChasingMission, and #CysticFibrosisAwareness. These pictures serve as encouragement for little West to take yet another bite. I figure as food bloggers, we totally got this, so I’d appreciate anything you can do to help.
Current Mood: slightly melancholy, after saying goodbye to the Hubby, although we’ll be reunited again in five days. I’ll probably affix myself to his leg because that’s not awkward. Cough, cough.
Your turn. Answer any of the Currently questions above? Also, I’d very much appreciate your help with spreading the word about the #EatWithWest campaign.
