I find introductions to be kind of redundant for these Currently posts. Considering I’m about to ramble for paragraphs on end, it doesn’t make much sense to get carried away here. On that note, I say ♫ Let’s get it started. And the bass keeps runnin’, runnin’. ♫ Fun fact: that was the first song played at our wedding.
And away we go.
Current Book: Last night I finally finished The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss, the second of three books in The Kingkiller Chronicles. It was fantastic, but with no release date set for the third book, I am railing against the book gods. I need to know what happens next.
Current Music: since watching the documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, I keep hearing Nirvana everywhere. I don’t mind, but man those lyrics are more than a little disturbing after the fact.
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: this little guy sleeping in my lap, while I write this post.
Current Guilty Pleasure: I got carried away at the farmers market on Saturday. The Hubby just shook his head when he saw my, in his opinion, excessive purchases. Mark my words, he will thank me when we’re munching on sweet corn and zucchini pancakes in the dead of winter.
Current Drink: it’s summer and I’m drinking all the cocktails. All day, every day. Alright fine, it’s more like vacation and weekends. No shame in my game.
Current Food: loads and loads of fruits and veggies. Our CSA game is going strong, and I’m owning those green beans. (Oh hi there, shameless self plug. Nice to see you.)
Current Obsession: whether I’m tossing them myself or going out to eat, I’m on a strong and solid salad bender. In fact, it’s so prominent, I’m thinking a post devoted solely to salads is in order.
Current Confession: the Hubby and I went on a little picnic in the Metroparks, and despite the ten times I peed before leaving the house, I had to go bad when we got there, which is completely typical for me. So, I went in the woods, and then I rinsed my flip flopped foot in the nearby stream because hello, splatter.
Current Excitement: the garlic festival is coming. The garlic festival is coming. I can hardly contain my excitement.
Current Wish List: I wish I was independently wealthy. Don’t we all?
Current Bane of Existence: the job that pays my bills is kicking my non-ass ass ,which is making me more than a little sad. Le sigh.
Current Indulgence: summertime gelato.
Current Epiphany: running in the middle of the day or late morning isn’t the smartest idea when it’s eighty degrees out and humid. Oy vey.
Current Needs: my mojo back at the office.
Current Triumphs: I’ve been hitting it at the gym pretty regularly since June, which helps me manage my sanity. It probably does something for my jiggly bits too. I’m not complaining.
Current Thankfulness: summer sunsets at Edgewater Live.
Current Fear: spiders. While there’s nothing new about that, a spider did force me to jump out of my kayak in the middle of Lake Erie last month, causing my entire family, who were watching from the shore to worry because they thought I’d capsized and was stuck. The Hubby even swam out to save me. My hero.
Current Laughs: brother sister shenanigans on our family vacation in July. The best part is I deliberately picked the photo where he was about to fall and I was standing strong. She who creates the collage gets to have all the fun. Cackle, cackle.
Current Links: How to make Corn Stock using just the leftover cobs. I love making something out of nothing.
Current Mood: I have mixed emotions. It’s Monday which means back to the grind, but also a fresh start for the week. Here’s to keeping my head up and hitting it hard.
Your turn. What’s Currently going on in your world? Current book? Current obsession? Current confession? If you’ve been married, what was the first song played at your wedding?
