I just read Kristin's post about blogging every day in May which I actually did in 2013 (! such a baby blogger!) and I was inspired to try to blog more than I have been in May. It's currently Sunday night and I still need to do things to get ready for the week, so why not start off slow and easy with a Currently post (and to keep copying Kristin, I'm using the categories from her most recent one. You know what they say about imitation and flattery and all of that).
So, I'm currently...
Watching: Nashville is my guilty pleasure. It's so awful and ridiculous that I can't get enough. I'm trying to make myself watch Fear the Walking Dead but I'm just not that into it. I started season two of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and I just don't love it. Is it the show, or is it me?
Trying: to be more intentional with my time. I waste so much of it mindlessly scrolling instagram, facebook, and twitter, or napping, or watching a show I don't like (see above) and then feel overwhelmed with responsibility when I need to clean my house or find a new dog bed to buy or other boring adult activities. I cleaned my floors when I wanted to laze and listed things on Poshmark earlier this afternoon, so I'm currently giving myself a gold star in that department.
Reading: The Truth and Other Lies. I can't get into it. The story is compelling enough, but the writing isn't doing anything for me. I'm 33% done so we'll see if I get through it or move on.
Enjoying: the last vestiges of spring before summer's humidity hits. All of the jasmine in bloom everywhere I turn around (I need to figure out where jasmine thrives and plant some of my own).
Noticing: that I need new mascara, and to put self tanner on my legs, and a haircut, and probably a pedicure, too.
Buying: shoes for Andrew, a new bed for Duncan, jeans for me. I haven't worn Levi's since I was a kid, but I read about these on Pretty Providence and I think I love them. I couldn't find the right size/color combo at my Macy's so I ordered them online. Only $32 with coupons and free shipping - gotta love it.
Thinking about: blog post ideas and making it more of a priority, finding a new book to read, dinner with my friends on Wednesday, and the Saigon Cinnamon ice cream that Andrew grabbed at the store today.
