Time: 4:53 pm MST
The Scene: Today has been a great catch-up day, filled with phone calls and paperwork. It really did not start out on the greatest foot, but it has been improving. I did take a break to take my kids to swimming lessons this morning and get beat in a game of UNO by my son this afternoon.
Drinking: Water. In fact, it is time for another refill.
Reading: I am hoping to finish The Picture of Dorian Gray later this evening. I am not sure yet what my next read will be after that. I am debating between returning to the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris for a bit of fun or picking up the bestseller, The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins or going with a book I've been wanting to read for a while, Quiet by Susan Cain. Any recommendations?
I am also currently listening to Four by Veronica Roth on audiobook and still reading The Sea of Monsters with my kids.
Writing: I currently have so many writing projects on my plate right now! I have been working on some fun writing prompts inspired by my writing group. I am starting some things for a secret writing project. And, I really, really need to work on catching up on reviews for the blog. I am trying to write a little bit each day. I missed a few days last week, but I also have improved from previous weeks, so I am counting that as progress.
Watching: I am really not watching a lot these days. My husband did receive Kingsman for Father's Day and we watched that over the weekend. Oh, and we did have a family movie night with Paul Blart, Mall Cop (the first one). What I really want to get to is more Sherlock! I can never get enough of that show!
Promoting: Book Bloggers International!! Have you seen the latest updates coming from the site these days?!? We have a new book blogger community calendar and next week will be the release of our fun little newsletter! If you haven't already checked it out, you will definitely want to!
Listening: We have been on a "Happy" kick here at our house, particularly when watching the official video that accompanies it. It just makes us all want to smile and dance!
What is currently going on in your lives? Do you like seeing this format for weekly check-ins or do you prefer my usual randomness instead?
I love catch-up days! I definitely need to have one. And hurray for the writing and writing projects, Tif!ReplyDelete
Belle Wong ... The nice thing is that I have been feeling so productive lately. Hoping it continues to help with the writing too!Delete
Catch-up days are wonderful, aren't they? I always feel tremendously successful and productive when I can clear off my desk and/or make headway on my to-do list.ReplyDelete
Michelle ... They truly are! Now that I'm fairly caught up, I am excited to work on fun stuff today!Delete
Hahahaha, so, I like the song "Happy," but every single time it comes on the radio, no matter where we are, my mother says, "I don't think he really is happy. I don't believe it." And that's what I think of now, every time I hear it.ReplyDelete
Jenny @ Reading the End ... LOL! I was just talking to a family member today and whenever they hear the word "happy" he asks, "Like a room without a roof?" Cracks me up all these stories about this song!Delete
I love the Currently meme! Catch-up days are the best, aren't they? I still need to catch up on my reviewing, but my reading seems to be a little better. I've also got a backlog of TV shows to catch up on, so not sure where I'm going to find the time. I'm afraid that I might lose them all if our DVD breaks, but can't seem to find the time to watch any of them. Really wish I had a time-turner so I could catch up with everything! But then I'd probably just play Farmville all day, so maybe not. ;)ReplyDelete
Alexia561 ... Ha! I sometimes wish that too, but then I think that I would end up wasting my time as well. I tend to get so caught up on things online!!Delete
