I fully intended to have this post written and published about three hours ago. Then I got absorbed reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and my whole morning disappeared. C’est la vie.
Time // 12:02 p.m.
Place // The usual, my cluttered desk in my chilly house.
Eating // Chocolate chip cookies and raspberries, the breakfast of champions. I’m not eating Taco John’s, although I did have a disgustingly good quesadilla there on Friday for lunch.
Drinking // Green tea
Reading // Aside from Fangirl, which is nearly too delightful to put into words and made me have all of the feelings, I haven’t finished any books this week. I’ve been meandering slowly through several — Super Graphic by Tim Leong (“a visual guide to the comic book universe”), Best American Essays 2013, and Skippy Dies by Paul Murray. I’m also still trying to decide on my January recommendation for Blogger’s Recommend; more on that once I figure out what I want to suggest.
Watching // The Sing-Off is back! I think that show is delightful and I will not put up with anyone telling me otherwise.
Making // The boyfriend and I went to an ugly sweater Christmas party last night, so I made chocolate chip cookies to share. I haven’t baked much since I started Weight Watchers, so it was fun to get into the groove a bit. They turned out awesome. I will be chowing down.
Blogging // I had big plans for the blog last week… and then I was too brain dead to write much of anything. I have a few Read in 2013 books that I still want to write reviews of, but it looks like that will have to wait until after the holidays. This week I’ll be putting up my favorite fiction and nonfiction reads of the year, then putting the blog in quiet mode for the week of Christmas. I drafted both of my lists yesterday afternoon and I am SO EXCITED to share them.
Promoting // The crew over at Book Riot posted our best books of 2013 list this week and man, is it a doozy. I love how eclectic the list turned out to be — I guarantee you’ll see books you know and books you’ve never heard of if you skim through.
Hating // I would complain about the weather, but we managed to get into the double digits (yes, above 10 degrees!) this week so I can’t really whine too much. I am frustrated that I spent so much time procrastinating over the last three or four weeks. I have a couple big projects that need to get done today that I could have dealt with a lot sooner.
Loving // I got to the gym for a weight lifting class yesterday morning, which I am starting to feel pretty good about. We did some pushups as part of one of the songs and I could actually, almost finish a few. This is major progress.
Anticipating // I’m heading to my parent’s house for the entire Christmas week. I can’t wait to leave on Friday after work.
Happy Sunday, everyone! What are you reading today?
