Briefly | It’s been the laziest of lazy weekend. I feel a little bad about the fact that I spent the entire afternoon finishing up season six of The Good Wife on Amazon Prime… but sometimes that’s what you need.
Eating and Drinking | What I would really love today is a Bloody Mary, but I don’t think that’ll be happening.
Reading | This week’s reading was all about young adult books. I flew through Leigh Bardugo’s newest book, Six of Crows, a heist story set in the same universe as The Grisha Trilogy. I loved being back in that universe, but with new characters and a new type of story. I kept scratching the YA itch with a book that’s been popular over at Book Riot — Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy. It was really sweet and also, I think, important and honest in the way it portrays a fat main character who doesn’t care that she’s overweight. I’m not sure what is up next today, maybe jumping back into Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho.
Making | I finished up “Katniss Cowl” for a friend of mine. No photos yet, but as soon as I give it to her I’ll take some pictures to share.
Cooking | I was planning to make Crock Pot Chicken and Wild Rice Soup from Iowa Girl Eats today, but it’s supposed to be like 90 degrees this afternoon… not soup weather.
Blogging | I went to a book sale earlier this month and finally got around to sharing some of my finds. I love a good book sale.
Hating | I didn’t take any interesting pictures this week. I don’t normally take a ton of pictures, except of Hannah, but normally I have at least a couple fun things to share. I think I spent a lot of the week feeling grumpy and inside my own head… not great.
Loving | BANG! is my current favorite card game — “The card game BANG! recreates an old-fashioned spaghetti western shoot-out, with each player randomly receiving a Character card to determine special abilities, and a secret Role card to determine their goal.” It’s not that complicated, but really fun when you get a good group together.
Avoiding | I was avoiding doing the dishes, but I broke down and cleaned my entire kitchen earlier this morning. So now I guess I’m avoiding answering emails and going to the grocery store. Being a grown up is hard.
Anticipating | I’m hoping to get outside later today to take a walk. It’s important to get some Vitamin D on this unseasonably warm day (especially since I missed most of it yesterday).
Happy Sunday, everyone! What are you reading today?
