Current Books: I just finished a reread of The Prince of Tides. I love the lyrical quality to Pat Conroy’s words. I am halfway through Beyond Smells and Bells. I just started a review book for Amazon Vine. It is called the Night Circus. It is not published yet, and I admit to taking sinful pride in reading books before they are on the shelves. So far, I like it.
Current Playlist: Well, David has been insisting on the WOW 2011 CD, but I have finally wrested back control of the car’s CD player, and we are listening to Hind’s Feet on High Places.
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Reading all day, for the parts of the day I am awake. It is summer, and the boys and I are relaxing. We are reading 39 Clues together.
Current Colors: Kentucky Blue and any bright clear shade
Current Fetish: Frozen fruit slush things. Chillers, I think they are called. So good. Better than a popsicle.
Current Food: I have discovered the yumminess of a Morningstar black bean burger, on hummus-coated flat bread
Current Drink: Well, I have Diet Pepsi in the fridge, but I am drinking water more. The heat calls for that.
Current Favorite Favorite: Leila. She sent a card from Olivia today. Cutest thing. And, she is always compassionate and patient.
Current Wishlist: Either an iPad or a 13″ Macbook
Current Needs: I need to make a dental appointment. I have a back tooth bothering me. I also need to go to Lens Crafters. Haydn and I both broke nose guards off of our glasses within days of one another. What are the odds?
Current Triumph: I voted and spoke on the floor at Annual Conference. I also wrote the theme piece for the weekend.
Current Bane-of-my-Existence: A lack of logic and common sense in certain people. Also entitlement and arrogance in these same people.
Current Celebrity Crush: Doctor Who. We are on the 10th Doctor. I preferred the 9th, but this one is growing on me.
Current Indulgence: Ice cream sandwiches. I cannot eat an ice cream sandwich without feeling like a kid again.
Current Mood: Mostly good. Some zombie days and a bit of edginess sprinkled in for good measure. But, overall, I am happy.
Current #1 Blessing: The consistency of my husband.
Current Slang or Saying: Can’t think of anything.
Current Outfit: Peace, Love and UK shirt, Kentucky hat, Ann Taylor blue jeans, black flip-flops
