It’s been awhile since I’ve done a “Currently” post, so I figured why not…
Loving- My new kitchen toys. I recently got a juicer, which I love. Hubby and I have been drinking lots of juice loaded with fresh fruits and veggies. The big kids were not a fan and refuse to drink more (but they eat a lot of fruits and veggies anyway, so they’re pretty good. I guess they just don’t like everything together.) The toddler loves sharing our juice with us, which is good because he’s more of a picky eater.
I also got a waffle maker, which the family has been loving. I also got a sandwich maker, and have been making my kids breakfast sandwiches, which Speed loves.
Reading- I’m debating what to read. I’ve been contemplating re-reading The Stand by Stephen King. I’m also debating seeing if I can get another library card. About 7 years ago, I had a library card, and they said I never returned a book that I never even took out. Because I couldn’t return a book I’d never taken out, they turned off my card. At the time I didn’t care, therefore never fought it. Now I’d love to be able to read some library books on my nook.
Watching- Breaking Bad. I am tremendously sad that it’s ending, but am happy that Vince Gilligan isn’t running with it, until it’s boring and overdone. Honestly, I feel it’s one if the best written shows in long time. I love the humor. I love the emotion. I love the relationship dynamics. I love everything about this show. I am so sad that it’s ending, but cannot wait to see how Vince Gilligan ends it.
Also watching Sons of Anarchy. I was happy when it came back, but after the season premiere, and all it’s crazy insanity, and a number of triggers, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to continue to watch. I gave Kurt Sutter the benefit of the doubt. Luckily things seem to have toned down, but I’m still on the fence.
Supernatural will be back soon, and I’ll give it another go, but in recent seasons my interest has lessened, unfortunately. Luckily, Jensen Ackles is hot and worth watching.
Also excited about the upcoming return of The Walking Dead.
I also have a couple shows and movies in my Netflix queue to be watched or continued on a rainy day.
Thinking about- I’m thinking about cutting my hair. I waver back and forth between trying to grow it out, and chopping it all off.
Anticipating- Ziggy’s third birthday! I cannot believe that my buddy is going to be three next month! It’s exciting because he’s actually aware, and knows that his birthday is coming. He knows he’ll get presents (although he wants everything from Hulk Hands to My Little Pony Equestria Girls), he knows he’ll get a party cake, and has asked for party hats and party banners.
I’m also excited for Halloween. He wavers between being excited, and being scared of monsters.
Listening to- I’ve been listening to a lot of We The Kings lately. I’ve also been on an Elvis kick, thanks in part to Ziggy’s new obsession with Lilo and Stich.
Working on- I’m currently working on some Halloween costume ideas. I’m thinking of going the DIY route, and if I can pull it off, it will be brilliant. I don’t want to say what my ideas are yet, in case I fail horribly, but the boys and I will match. I’m trying to see if I can get GG to go in with us on this theme, but she has her own ideas. I wish hubby wasn’t working because he’d fit in brilliantly with my plan.
I’m also working on compiling a bunch of canning recipes, and will begin canning soon. I’m very excited over this, as I have wanted to can for years.
Wishing- I wish that Honest Tea’s (not too) Sweet Tea was available in a giant bottle. I love love love it, but don’t like buying one small bottle at a time.
