Since I completely skipped last month, it’s high 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: Golden Son, the second book in The Red Rising series. It’s a science fiction, high tech, fantasy kind of deal, and not at all my usual read. For whatever reason though, I’m hooked, and I look forward to squirreling away with it and Oscar every night. As an aside, Oscar doesn’t believe in personal space.
Current Thankfulness: my Hubby’s unusual and rotating work schedule (lots of 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. shifts), which makes buttermilk pancakes for breakfast pretty common around these here parts. Also apparently, I’m channeling my inner cowgirl; yeehaw.
Current Obsession: peaches. I’ll take them anyway I can get them right now, whether it’s eating them over the sink, while the juice runs down my face or perhaps something a little fancier, like in pancakes, pasta, muffins or grilled and stacked on a toasted cheese sandwich. Gimme gimme all the summertime peaches.
Current Triumphs: catching up on some blog reading, since I’ve been woefully behind for weeks now. It feels good to see the number of my unread blog posts dip below twenty, and it’s lovely to catch up with all of you.
Current Drink: this tropical orange smoothie. It’s one of my most pinned blog recipes, and more importantly it makes a great popsicle for teething babies, especially those molars. Oi.
Current Confession: I just used the bathroom and didn’t flush because I was worried I’d wake the baby up from her nap. I know, I know I’m foul. On the plus side, it was just a number one because I’m not a total animal.
Current Excitement: the Hubby is having knee surgery this Friday, which isn’t ideal, but I’m looking forward to having my partner in crime home with me and the baby for the next couple of weeks, even if he is on crutches.
Current Food: salad, mostly because I get a giant head of lettuce every single week in my CSA, and I’ll be damned if I let my greens go to waste.
Current Bane of Existence: I woke up Wednesday morning in pain and completely unable to turn my head to the left. It’s made life difficult to say the least. For example, I now know every single toilet paper roll in this house is on the left hand side. Hopefully it clears up before the Hubby’s surgery, or we’re going to be a mess in this house.
Current Needs: quite possibly a live in nurse, chef and babysitter if things keep going this way. Good thing my needs are simple (cough, cough).
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: enough said.
Current Mood: despite the physical ailments and the teething toddler, I’m in good spirits. Then again that might be all the coffee I drank earlier.
Your turn. What’s Currently going on in your world? Current book? Current obsession? Current confession?
