I will not be a cliché. I will not be a cliché. I will not be a cliché.
Can you believe May is nearly over? This month has literally flown by.
Dammit, mission compromised. Abort, abort, retreat.
You know what. Scratch the fancy intros and witty banter because they’re clearly not flowing anyway. Instead, let’s dive head first into a Currently post.
Current Book: last month I was promiscuous and had multiple books going at the same time. It was fun and fleeting for a fraction of a second. This month I’ve settled down with a single read: Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, by Beth Hoffman. It’s easy, breezy, and independent, everything you want in a rebound book.
Current Music: I’m in transition, trying to dig through our iTunes account and create some new playlists. Since we have 29,000 songs to pick from and my neurosis dictates I go through them all, in order, obviously it’s an arduous process.
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: traveling to San Diego, Boulder, and most recently Pittsburgh for a wedding where we were transported to magic fairly land, complete with twinkle lights and miniature ponies. Fine, it was a small ass, and I do mean the donkey.
Current Guilty Pleasure: an impulse purchase. I am a sucker for clever marketing and anything involving potatoes #spudlove #tellmeaboutitspud
Current Drink: I’ve been on a boozy kick. I blame the warm weather and the sultry breeze. If you close your eyes and listen closely, you can hear outdoor patios softly calling your name and visualize cocktails beckoning with their flirty umbrellas.
Current Food: all the fruits and veggies. Restocking the fridge post vacation makes me ridiculously happy.
Current Obsession: since booze is taken, let’s talk crackers. After all, I did manage to squirrel away a box or two or ten at Blend.
Current Confession: it was refreshing to have 34 Degrees as a sponsor this year. They were my ray of sunshine in a sea of protein powders.
Current Excitement: we got the garden planted. Insert squeal of happiness here, with an errant jazz hand or three thrown in for good measure.
In the raised bed, we’re growing asparagus, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, cucumbers, garlic, leeks, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes and zucchini. In the pots, we have basil, catnip, chives, cilantro, parsley, and rosemary. Lest there be any confusion, the nip is solely for the felines.
Current Wish List: I wish Oscar would stop bringing live chipmunks into the house in the hopes of finding a new best friend. One: I’m irreplaceable and two: his new friends think he’s Dexter, which isn’t a great foundation for any relationship, even interspecies.
Current Blessing: getting that same chipmunk safely out of the house and my rug sterilized. Alright fine, I didn’t sterilize the carpet. The five second rule is off the table in my house.
Current Indulgence: lounging around in sun patches with this girl, who spends a good portion of her waking hours beheading Oscar’s new friends. She’s the true sociopath.
Current Epiphany: I’m happier when I work less. Imagine that. Also, I clearly missed my calling as a rocket scientist.
Current Needs: I need to get back to the gym. I haven’t been in what feels like forever, and I like being a sweaty mess.
Current Triumphs: doing my first ever CrossFit class with Lucie in Colorado. That was fun, if not a little tortuous.
Current Thankfulness: Geauga Family Farms. I get my CSA through them, and the new season kicks off next week. Needless to say I’m eager to the umpteenth power; more rocket science stuff right there.
I promise to share more deets about CSA’s in an upcoming Throwback Thursday post.
Current Fear: getting pulled over for riding around nearly topless while taking duck faced selfies.
Current Laughs: no caption necessary.
Current Links: BlogLovin because I’m still playing catch up.
Current Mood: content as a Cheshire Cat. Don’t tell Oscar though; he’d be totally jealous.
Your turn. What’s Currently going on in your world? Current book? Current mood? Will you be planting a garden or joining a CSA this year?
