Briefly | It’s been such a fun weekend! Last night a friend and I went to an adult coloring event, Color and Cork, hosted by a local arts organization. It was surprisingly fun, a cool way to get out and meet people that felt less awkward because there was this self-directed activity to do at the same time. Plus, snacks and wine! Afterwards, we met up with the boys — who were hanging out at friend’s house for a Diaper Party (dude baby shower) — and stayed up way too late hanging out. My hangover this morning is minimal, so I think it’ll be a good day.
Reading | I battled my case of the Gobbledybooks pretty successfully yesterday. I woke up super early (not on purpose…), so I spent the morning getting through Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee for our local library book club. Man, I did not like that book… it was so, so unpleasant. After that, I decided to tackle The Regional Office is Under Attack by Manuel Gonzales — I’m making really good progress there. If I get done with that today, I think The Expatriates by Janice Y.K. Lee will be next on the list (yeah, I know I’ve been saying that for weeks).
Watching | I coworker and I went to see Zootopia this week. It was so great, smart and funny enough that I laughed out loud in place. I would 100 percent be on board with a buddy cop TV show starring Officers Judy Hopps and Nick Wild of the Zootopia Police Department.
Listening | Now that I have a car with a working CD player (technology!) I’ve been pulling out my old CDs. High school/college Kim was very into Nine Days and Jimmy Eat World (and, let’s be real, all of the boy bands you can think of).
Making | I’m working on this blanket as a baby shower gift for a friend expecting a little boy in May. It’s a really simple pattern that’s great while sitting in front of the tv.
Promoting | Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is coming up this weekend! YAY! I got so excited about it that this week I shared some of my best tips for Readathon success. I’ll have a book pile to share sometime later this week.
Hating | We didn’t make it to the grocery store yesterday, so the fridge is pretty bare of breakfast choices. Present Day Kim is pretty annoyed by Past Kim for that decision.
Loving | Hamilton: The Revolution (a big book all about the making of Hamilton) came in the mail this week and it is gorgeous. I’m so glad I splurged to get it.
Avoiding | I need to make new blog business cards for BEA, but I can’t seem to settle on a design for them and I’m running out of time to get them printed… lame.
Anticipating | The weather this week has been really beautiful. I’m hoping to get outside this afternoon for nice long walk around the neighborhood. I also need to start breaking in my summer shoes… this time of year is always rough on my feet.
Happy Sunday! What are you reading today?
