In which I am currently…

Listening … the soundtrack of Midnight in Paris. I blame Stephanie entirely for this. It’s my new favourite movie and I can’t stop watching it, the soundtrack is divine. (The library late fees will be staggering.)

WatchingDownton Abbey is absolutely sublime but it makes me sad that it’s so popular now. I liked when I had it all to myself for that brief shining moment. Now everyone has an opinion on O’Brien. I’m waiting on Series 4 of Lark Rise to Candleford from the library. And, of course, as aforementioned, Midnight in Paris is on repeat.

Reading … When I have deadlines or feel a bit overwhelmed, I read books-that-cannot-be-put-down. Hence, I’ve just finished a rip-roaring run through Harry Potter series and the Hunger Games trilogy. Also reading Introverts in the Church by Adam McHugh; I feel very validated by this book and will probably tell you more about it later. Next up is Brennan Manning’s memoir, All is Grace and Jen Hatmaker’s, 7: A Mutiny Against Excess.

Eating … peanut butter on toast, my one weakness.

Drinking … french press coffee.

Wearing … maternity yoga pants and an old plaid shirt from my 90s Nirvana days. (Man, I wish I had done this little meme on a day when I had on cute clothes…alas.)

Feeling … tired after a long night with Evelynn up frequently but rather content. I love mornings.

Weather … the snow is still piled but it’s melting, the mercury is hovering around zero and rain is falling.

Wanting … a full night’s sleep and a back rub and a morning to write write write. Also, a ticket to Blissdom wouldn’t suck.

Needing … to get on with the day but rather content to sit here, watching Ever play while the tinies watch their morning show and I drink my coffee.

Thinking … of my book proposal (constantly), of Brian who has been working non-stop on call and at school, just missing him so much, what to make for lunch, books I want to read, what’s on the docket for school today, laundry to do, does Joe need to pee…

Enjoying … My new knitting project – I’m finally attempting a sweater for my 6’5″ husband so we’re talking a lot of stockinette stitch which is perfectly suited for another viewing of Midnight in Paris, this cup of coffee, the stacks of library books scattered around the house, this moment.

What about you? What are you currently up to?
