Currently | Cooler Weather Means More Cat Cuddles

currently october 18.jpg

Time and Place | About 8:30 a.m., snuggled up in bed in the spare room at my parent’s house. The boyfriend’s parents came in from Wisconsin so we’re meeting up in the (approximate) middle to visit.

Eating and Drinking | Nothing yet, but we’re heading out to an awesome brunch buffet later this morning. You can make your own pancakes or have roast beef… or both!

Reading | It’s been a really quiet reading week, just slowly making my way through Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho.

Watching | I just got sucked into Elementary, a CBS show starring Johnny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson. It’s pretty cheesy, but I’m addicted. Thanks, Hulu.

Listening | The boyfriend and I listened to a few episodes of NPR’s Invisibilia podcast on the drive down — so far, so good.

Blogging | I finally blogged this week, the third post about my trip to Europe, this time about Jane Austen and architecture in Bath. I’ve got a couple more posts on the trip planned, one about Greece and one about the Making of Harry Potter Tour at Warner Bros. Studios.

Promoting | Nonfiction November is coming back! I’m excited to be co-hosting the third iteration of this event, kicking off here on Monday, Nov. 2.

Hating | I am SUPER BUMMED I couldn’t participate in the Readathon yesterday. The fall Readathon is my favorite — I love snuggling in with a good book — but family time was fun yesterday.

Loving | Cooler weather has made the cat extra cuddly. Although she generally prefers cuddling with the boyfriend, I can sometimes get her on my lap in the morning while eating breakfast or when I stop home for lunch.

Loving II | I took the plunge and got some lowlights put in my hair this week. I love the change. And I played around with pattern mixing. I think it was successful?

Wanting | Despite the first frosty morning of the season, I’m hoping desperately that winter will hold off for awhile. I am not ready!

Anticipating | Brunch. Pancakes are calling my name.

Happy Sunday, everyone! What are you reading today?

    So much good in this post! 🙂 I too have been loving the cooler weather, and you’re right that it makes curling up with a good book so much easier.

    I’m so thrilled for Nonfic November! I hope to dive into some social justice-y/social science-y reads. I’ll be writing my graduate school essays, and they’ll be great inspiration!

    Enjoy your pancakes!

      I love both social justice and social science! Nonfiction November always gives me a little reading and blogging boost going into the end of the year. Glad you’ll be joining us.

    Some day I will do a readathon. I’m pretty sure I’ll have to like rent a hotel room or cabin because there’s too much to do at home, but someday it will happen.

      I think if I had young kids, renting a hotel room is something I’d serious consider for at least one Readathon of the year. I’m trying to do as many as I can before I turn into a real grow up 🙂

    Isn’t Elementary fun? Have you gotten to Natalie Dormer yet? Granted, she’s brilliant in everything she’s in, but I loooove her in Elementary.

    • Kim October 25, 2015, 1:14 pm

      Yes! She was so great — finished up season one this week. I’m hoping she comes back.

    I’m looking forward to Nonfiction November. I’m just starting a book on the Donner party called The Indifferent Stars. It’s for a tour. Enjoy your week

      Oooo, that sounds good.

    Echoing what Jenny says about Natalie Dormer. You really have to keep watching until you get to her part!

    • Kim October 25, 2015, 1:14 pm

      Yes! She’s so twisty and wonderful. What a great character.
