I’m skipping an introduction today mainly because I don’t have one. Plus, these Currently posts are already long enough without me spewing a bunch of words to kick them off.
Without further ado:
Current Book: I’m reading Drums of Autumn, the fourth book in the Outlander series right now, although I recently polished off Life From Scratch, a Memoir of Food, Family and Forgiveness by Sasha Martin and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. Quick and enjoyable reads, I’d highly recommend both.
Current Triumphs: along with my family, completing this 1,000 piece puzzle at the beach last week. I wasn’t sure it’d happen since Ave takes up most of my time these days, but we managed to get it done.
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: you scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream…on a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie because chipwiches yo’.
Current Indulgence: sleep. I’m actually getting some again, including a handful of seven hour stretches which is beyond glorious.
Current Drink: Beet Juice Smoothies because I’m all about that [beet], bout that [beet], no treble. Yes, I know this song is so 2014. Sue me, although not really because that would suck.
Current Food: thanks to my CSA, I’m eating my weight in salads this summer, and I’ve got a crazy good flavor combo coming your way soon.
Current Bane of Existence: my veggie garden has been taken over by crabgrass; the bastards. I will not go gently into that good night mainly because I’m stubborn and a fan of Dylan Thomas’ poetry. My high school English teacher would be so proud.
Current Obsession: I can’t handle the cuteness.
Current Excitement: I resigned from my job of the past sixteen years. While I’m going to miss the people and the challenges, I’m super excited to have this time with Ave and figure out what comes next for me.
Current Confession: My melons are leaky, and I don’t mean the fruit.
Current Wish List: world peace. All this violence, hatred and exclusion hurts my heart.
Current Blessing: friends who pass on baby clothes. We got so many I could open a boutique. Instead I washed, sorted, and shared them with others.
Current Needs: motivation, which is sorely lacking these days. I have a bazillion projects I want to tackle and yet I find myself twiddling my thumbs whenever Ave is napping. What gives?
Current Thankfulness: I’m grateful this girl drove two plus hours to see little ol’ me, although truth be told, she might have come for the tiny human.
Current Fear: the rhubarb in my fridge will go bad before I have a chance to use it, and I really want to make this coffee cake.
Current Epiphany: Ave can only handle about one outing or major activity a day before she gets overstimulated so I try to keep the excitement to a minimum.
Current Laughs: Absolutely Fabulous. I’ve been watching the old episodes, and they do not disappoint.
Current Links: this billboard is just one of the reasons I love the city of Cleveland.
Current Mood: accomplished considering this is my second post this week, and it’s only Wednesday. Boom!
Your turn. What’s Currently going on in your world? Current book? Current obsession? Current confession? Current mood?
