Almost every week day, I come and work in the library for a few hours. It gets me out of the house, some fresh air and a chance to just be around people – a major bonus for those who work from home.
I am an observer. I am always aware of my surroundings, taking everything in. I look at the people and what they are doing. Some are obviously students, immersed in reading and frantically typing away/ have become complete zombies staring at the screen, doing nothing. Others just come to read the paper each day or sit and chill out during their lunch hour.
I also find myself glancing to read the spines of books. What must go through some peoples minds when they decide to pick a title for their book is beyond me. But hey, I guess you have to be unique right? The funny title for today that jumped out at me is ‘Warm and Sunny etc.etc’. Certainly more appealing than it’s neighbour ‘Bad Teeth’…
If I ever get the opportunity to write a book I just hope the subject is fairly obvious so that I can make the title fairly obvious!
Anyhoo, you came for ‘Currently‘ and that is what you are going to get! Linking up with @RunningWithSpoons hostess with the mostess, Amanda for ‘Thinking Out Loud’!
Book – Yes Please… and others
So I requested a few books from the library and got them all at once! The latest Harry Potter (and the cursed child) was my first read and I very much enjoyed it. I actually loved that they kept it screenplay style and found it very easy to read. I am now on to Yes Please by Amy Poehler – not my usual type of read but her personality intrigues me. Then I will be on to Essentialism (which I have heard amazing things about) and Mindy Kaling’s – Is everyone hanging out without me.
Obsession – Strawberries
Yup we are officially in berry season here and that makes me so happy! The strawberries are just incredible right now and we can pick them up each week from our farmers market. Hopefully we will get out to the fields to go strawberry picking soon though!
Craving – Sourdough Bread
Did you guys hear about the bakery we found on holiday, in the middle of nowhere, serving freshly baked sourdough each day? I cannot stop thinking about it and how good it was! So glad we are going back in a couple of months. Definitely need to pick up some to pop in the freezer for Christmas!
Food – The Chocolate Yogi – Hunny Bumbly
We saw this in the store the other week and picked it up – it sounded good! Sometimes a raw chocolate bar can be hit or miss but this one is fantastic! It has so much flavour to it and I can’t wait to try the white and dark versions of it too. Definitely a good alternative to chocolate, or, like me, just for something different!
Drink – Appleachia Apple Cider Vinegar Drink
I mentioned this drink in last weeks ‘Friday Favourites’ but it definitely deserves a mention again. I have bought one every week since and my favourite is the ginger, tumeric and yuzu.
Procrastination – Counting Macros…
Did you see my post on Tuesday? If so you will be in the know of my diet over the past 8 months. But seriously, it takes so much time out of your day to do this – and I work out David’s for him too. So even though I need to do it anyway, I am counting this as my procrastination – because it takes so much time out of doing other things!
Blessing – Spring is here, and it’s starting to feel like summer
Ah I have missed the feeling on sunshine on my face! Ok so a Australian winter is mild, I will admit that, but it doesn’t make the beginnings of summer any less impactive.
Excitement – A new project…
Guys I have been working over the past few weeks on a new project and I cannot wait to announce it to you all next week. It is way out of my comfort zone but that’s what makes it so rewarding! Stay posted, I think you are going to love it!
Bane of my existence – Spring cleaning
The new season has brought with it the ever present message that we need to deep clean our apartment. I don’t have a cluttered or untidy house but am I a ‘cleaner’? No. There is a little too much dust around for our liking and urgh, it just needs a good scrub and clean. There is literally no part of me that wants to do it though!
TV show – 4 new shows!
So since I last did a ‘Currently’ post we have made our way though 3 shows and on to a 4th! We adored Parks and Recreation and I think I will be quoting that series for the rest of my life! I am waiting anxiously for the new series of The Mindy Project to make its way over here and I really was surprised how much I enjoyed that show. Veep was incredibly funny and again, I look forward to the next series. And now, we are on to Scandal season 2. It’s good, real good!
Mood – Happy but ready for the weekend
I am a happy girl right now, but still looking forward to this weekend. This week has been a funny one head and productivity wise so I will be glad to switch off for a few days!
What is the strangest book title you have ever come across?
Do you like a good spring clean?
What are you craving right now?
