It’s been forever and a day since I posted; or really just a month, which is still way too long without oversharing or freeing my phalanges from their creative writing shackles. I’ve decided to ease back into things with a little Currently action, so we can get properly caught up.
Current Book: I’ve been on a Grisham kick (The Reckoning, Gray Mountain) with a side of World War Two dramas (The Nightingale and The Tattooist of Auschwitz), a few necessary guilty pleasures (Forever by Judy Blume and The Sisters of the Winter Wood by Rossner) and a thriller (Something in the Water by Steadman). Just in case it wasn’t abundantly clear, I like to read; a lot. It’s how I spend my free time when I’m not watching trashy television. Hello, two hour episodes of Hoarders.
Current Drink: so. much. booze. We just got back from a week long vacation in the Cayman Islands and I’m pretty sure I drank my way through it. Mimosas in the morning, beer in the afternoon, wine and cocktails in the evening. My liver is glad to be home.
Current Food: all the fresh fruits and veggies. I love a good post-vacation food restock. It gives me the warm fuzzies.
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: Juli’s white chocolate macadamia nut butter. She sent me another supply and I’m gorging myself on this tantalizing and tasty treat. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and salty. On a side note, the diet is going swell. Insert eye roll here.
Current Confession: it’s been weird not blogging as much. When I took a step back from the week in review link up, it was so I’d have time to write other things, not disappear altogether. Apparently, my mojo is taking a different route. C’est la vie.
Current Bane of Existence: the weather. Could I pick anything more mundane? Probably not, but in my defense, I went from 80 degrees and sunshine to a cold 30 degrees, rainy and grey. That’s a bit of a shock for anyone.
Current Needs: to get back to the gym and the yoga studio. Thankfully, I have an elliptical in the basement so I’m able to get my sweat on without going anywhere, but I need to venture back to social exercise. I love a good group fitness class, especially spinning.
Current Obsession: the Cleveland International Film Festival. Even though it doesn’t officially kick off for a couple more weeks (tickets are on sale now), I’ve been fortunate to attend their Get Shorty party (where we watched and voted on a dozen short films) and their Preview Reception earlier this week. If you’re local, you should absolutely check it out. I’ll be at the opening night film, and I’m already stoked for it.
Current Blessing: our vacation couldn’t have gone any better. We went with two other families and had a blast. We snorkeled, swam with sting rays, built sand castles, explored billion year old caves, and lost our bowels at the agricultural fair. OK, that last one was just me. I re-hydrated with beer though.
Current Mood: mixed. I’m still riding the happy train but also expecting a unwelcome and re-occuring monthly visitor which means my emotions are volatile at best.
