Since April has come and almost gone, I think it’s high time for a Currently post, maybe even past due although we’ll just ignore that small fact. Let’s just say I’m fashionably late to the party, without the stylish attire since I’m rocking some fantastic grey sweatpants and a Mighty Ducks hoodie. On that note, let’s play.
Current Book: I am engaged in the unthinkable, at least for me. I am working my way through two books at once; promiscuous reading at its finest. One is what I like to call “A Book Book,” which means I can hold it in my hands and flip the pages as I see fit.
Stephen King: A Memoir of the Craft – On Writing
He would be appalled by my use of adverbs.
Current Nail Color: hell has not frozen over, although I did paint my nails, in honor of a fancy date night with the Hubby. We had some celebrating to do.
Current Music: No music, but about my promiscuous reading…I’ve been listening to an audio book, one recommended by my favorite Spoon. It’s fantasy ear porn and I am hooked.
Patrick Rothfuss: The Name of the Wind
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: inhaling the smell of these stargazer lilies on the daily. They’re over the top and pungent, just how I like my men…er I mean flowers. Excuse my Freudian slip.
Current Drink: still guzzling Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothies. In fact, I had one as recently as yesterday, and it was real good.
Current Food: while I do eat other foods, asparagus is high on my list right now, making the most appearances at my table, which makes growing my own a no brainer.
Oscar is skeptical of phallic veggies and inspects everything which pops up and out of the dirt in our raised garden bed.
Current Favorite Show: Game of Thrones, mostly because Daenerys Targaryen is a badass, and she owns dragons.
Current Wish List: to wave my magic wand and have my flower beds completely cleaned out and trenched, my trees trimmed, my hedges shorn and my driveway edged. A girl can dream.
Current Blessing: getting to spend quality time with the Hubby. He’s between school semesters, which means he’s footloose and fancy free for the next two weeks.
Current Indulgence: the Hubby and I went all spontaneous (yes, it was awkward for me) and booked a short trip to San Diego. We’re taking full advantage of his time off.
Current Needs: I’d be thrilled with some seventy-five degree weather right about now, so I can knock out said yard work before the neighbors report us to the city. I did get my Christmas lights down earlier this month so that’s something.
Current Triumphs: overhauling my Recipe Index with sparkly, shiny, new clickable picture galleries for each section. For my fellow bloggers, I’m using the WP Gallery Custom Links plugin. It’s awesome.
Current Bane of Existence: the downtown farmers market, the one I normally hit up on my Friday afternoon lunch hour, is no more. I’m heartbroken over this news.
Current Mood: asked and answered. My partner in crime is home. I’ve got travel on the horizon, flowers adorning my kitchen counter and asparagus in my garden; two good books and a popping new recipe index, I’d say life doesn’t get much better.
Your turn. What’s Currently going on in your world? Current book? Current mood? Any travel on the horizon? Will you be planting a garden this Spring?
