Since we’re nearing the end of the month, it’s time to slip another Currently post into the mix. Instead of rambling on, as is my usual custom, I’m getting right to the point today. You’re welcome.
Current Book: I finished John Irving’s In One Person, about blurred sexual lines and transgendered love. How apropos for today’s political climate. If you’re an Irving fan and you support love is love is love, then you’ll enjoy this book. I certainly did. Now, I’m working on The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rawling and so far, I’m really digging it.
Current Obsession: every since I got Amanda’s new cookbook, it’s muffin mania over here. I’ve made Banana Bread Muffins, Morning Glory Muffins, Double Blueberry Banana Muffins, and Apple Cinnamon Muffins; all in the past two weeks. I might have a problem.
Current Triumphs: I pampered myself with an hour long facial. It was magical, the heavens opened and the angels rejoiced.
Current Thankfulness: my mother has been in town the past few days helping out with the baby and in general making life easier. Hello facial.
Current Drink: water, which by some miracle keeps turning into wine. Clearly, I have a gift.
Current Food: homemade baked french fries. Sweet, white, golden, it doesn’t matter; the baby and I are in love.
Current Excitement: I got a new, used, car. It’s a Prius partially because I’m a hippie, but mainly because the last one saved the Hubby’s life two years ago. When you walk away from a wreck that has you sandwiched between a semi-truck and a snow plow, you show Toyota some love.
Current Needs: I need to sign up for my CSA season. The snippets of spring are making me crave those glorious veggies. I wouldn’t kick a summertime strawberry out of bed either.
Current Bane of Existence: the tiny human has been teething again. That, coupled with an eye procedure to open a blocked tear duct, have made things around here quite interesting as of late. Translation: shit’s been banana shorts.
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: despite the madness, I’m fairly certain all of our problems could be solved with a good veggie burrito and some rice and beans. I didn’t turn down the complimentary chips and salsa either. Or the pitcher of margaritas for that matter.
Current Confession: this was my second dinner that evening. My first consisted of salad, ravioli, bread and chocolate cake. I have no regrets.
Current Mood: considering I had some “me time” this morning, Ave is napping (finally) and the Hubby gets off work early today, I’m on cloud nine or at least seven point five.
Your turn. What’s Currently going on in your world? Current book? Current obsession? Current confession?
