Today marks my one year anniversary of Currently posts, which pretty much makes me a bazillion years old in blog time. Yeah, they’re like dog years, but accelerated. I’m still debating whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. How about I noodle it over, while you read what’s Currently going down.
One warning: there are lots of pictures of me in this post. I must be getting selfish in my old age. Carry on.
Current Book: Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, which is the exact same book I was reading last month. I’m feeling rather sheepish about this fact, and the truth of the matter is it takes a long time to finish a 900 plus page book when you average 6.9 sentences per night. What can I say? I’m a sleeper. I lay down and I’m out.
Current Music: If you read yesterday’s post on Seven Simple Dinner Ideas for the Work Week, you know Madonna made an appearance, along with a priest and a confessional. It gets weird up in here.
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: I overhauled my makeup and ended with a brand new look from a local company, Lusso Cosmetics. Their products are made on-site, and are cruelty and fragrance free. The owner also told me I had tight pores, so he’s my new bestie; he just doesn’t know it yet.
Current Drink: coffee in the mornings, cocktails in the evenings, and water all day, every day. There might have been a boozy root beer float in there too.
Current Food: a little bit of this and a lot of that. Basically, if it’s on my Instagram account, it’s because I’m eating it.
Current Favorite Show: anything which allows me not to think. These days when I turn on the television, I’m looking for a mindless distraction.
Current Wish List: this haircut. I’ve been wanting to do this for forever or maybe just the last couple years. It will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.
Current Indulgence: Sunday morning breakfasts with food, fruit and flowers. Sweet bliss in powdered sugar form. By the way, my baby brother totally flipped over the top piece of French toast because the other side was a bit too toasty. #trickeryanddeception.
Current Needs: to wash my face nightly, especially since I’m now rocking foundation. The thing is unless I’m getting in the shower to rinse off, I don’t like washing my face. It’s time-consuming, messy and adds at least another five minutes to my bedtime routine, which of course cuts into my book reading. How do women do this every night?
Current Triumphs: progress, except I missed a spot, like the entire middle of my nose.
Current Bane of Existence: ongoing construction outside my office at work. It’s been hardcore drilling six hours a day for the past week, and I don’t mean the good kind. It’s making me cuckoo for cocoa puffs.
Current Blessing: seeing my family and long-lost friends last weekend in Buffalo. Despite the weather outside, we still made a family run happen because that’s how we roll.
Current Excitement: Guess who’s going to the farmers market today? OhmygoshohmygoshIamsquealingnowwhiletwitchyspasticallylikeanexcitedpuppy.
Current Links: BlogLovin because there is blog reading to be had. I’m easily a week behind, which is par for the course with me.
Current Mood: over the top excited. In just a few days, I’m going to celebrate my birthday by dancing with the leprechauns in a pool of green beer, or maybe that’s the beer talking. ‘Eh, no matter. It’s gonna be fun. The whole city comes out to celebrate.
Your turn. What’s Currently going on in your world? Current Book? Current Mood? Would you be willing to rock a buzz cut? Are you always behind on blog reading too? Who wants to drink green beer with me and make poor food choices next Tuesday?
