July. Already? I’m not ready for the summer to rush by so quickly. Maybe if I stop and talk about the things that are happening it will create the illusion of slowing it all down.
Here’s what’s happening for me, right now.
Watching: Orange Is The New Black. Once we are caught up (we’re about halfway through this new season) we will go back to House of Cards. And maybe Grace and Frankie since I’m hearing great things about that show.
Reading: Serena by Ron Rash. It’s for the book bingo square for a book I think I will dislike. Now, obviously, I liked the sound of it enough to add it to my to-read list at some point but ever since it came through for me on Overdrive I’ve felt sort of meh about it. I’ve only just started to whether I like it or not remains to be seen but it’s going to count for that square either way. And can I also say, that’s a dumb topic for a square. WHY would I read a book I think I won’t like?
Listening to: Pandora, the Adult Alternative station. I think Dale might be coming around to this. Okay, not really, but he’s stopped with the constant protesting regarding modern music.
Drinking: Martinis. And lots of water.
Planning: Next week’s vacation. Mark Twain House, here we come. And also the beach. And the lake. Woo hoo!
Remembering: Tuesday night’s hibachi dinner with our kids. It was fun! And also, expensive. Boo. But still. FUN!
Eating: Lettuce. Okay, not really, but I should be because our CSA this year? LOTS and LOTS of lettuce. I told Jo-Ann we should get an effing rabbit already.
Planting: New perennials out front. Some lupine and shasta daisies and lavender.
Wishing: I could stowaway in Hannah’s suitcase on Sunday when she leaves for Oxford. Everyone describes it as living inside the world of Harry Potter. She’s going to have a marvelous time and I’m very happy for her. And also incredibly jealous.
Dreading: The days at the end of Hannah’s trip when she’s in Iceland. By herself. Oy.
Celebrating: The Fourth of July. I think I shall make this pie.
What’s going on in your world right now?
