This week I'm joining the Currently crowd as a way to get back into the blogging groove. It's a quick and easy way to share what's up every other Tuesday. Thanks to the lovely Katy Upperman for the inspiration!
LovingSpring. It finally stopped raining and the sun came out and everything. We hit 90 one day last week. It was grand.
ReadingI'm behind on my reading goal for the year, so I really need to pick up the pace. I just started Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler because John Green said I should in a Youtube video and I happened to be looking for something new to read. Last week I finished Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven King. I will not say more except to say that I have so many feelings.
Side Note: Does anyone else find the estimates on the bottom of the Kindle screen about how long it will take you to finish a book maddening?
Kindle: 7 hours 42 minutes
Me: ! This book isn't that long. I need to speed up.
Kindle: 7 hours 40 minutes.
*I get interrupted by SoundMan while reading and spend 4 minutes on one page*
Kindle: 7 hours and 45 minutes
Kindle: 7 hours and 46 minutes
I had to turn that feature off in favor of just listing the page number/percentage complete. One of the things I miss about reading a physical book is being able to thumb through the pages I have left.
WatchingI just finished Season 3 of The Americans and now must wait until Season 4 is released on Amazon Prime (since it is still airing, this will be a long wait). It's not one of those shows I'm just dying to finish. It's a little dark, but a couple of the characters are interesting and the cliffhanger for season 3 was pretty good. I'm also excited Outlander is back, although this season has been a little ho-hum for me until the episode that aired on Saturday. I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it, but whoa.
Listening ToThe Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard is keeping me entertained at work and I have Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert on permanent loop in my car for whenever I need inspiration. I love, love, love the audiobook.
AnticipatingHealth and wellness. I got a cold two weeks ago and then my allergies kicked in and now I have one clogged ear and a dry hacking cough that won't go away. I am slowly starting to feel better but I am really looking forward to not smelling like cough drops and getting my real voice back.
