Oh, how can it be the end of June already?
I feel like much of June has been wasted with work. (But not really. Deadlines just make it feel that way. Y'know?)
Here's what's going on for me . . . RIGHT NOW.
WATCHING . . . Are you kidding me? Truthfully, I watched a few bits of the Stanley Cup playoffs, but other than that, I haven't watched television (or a movie) in months! (I did watch fireflies in my backyard last night, though!)
READING . . . Even my reading has slowed to a snail's pace these days. I'm in the middle of Transatlantic by Colum McCann. So far? Looking good. I've just started listening to White Dog Fell From the Sky by Eleanor Morse, but it's too early to weigh in at this point. I've recently become a regular reader of The New Yorker, too. (I used to pick up a copy once in while, but lately . . . well, Margene got me hooked. I finally subscribed and can read it right on my iPad.)
KNITTING . . . Let's not even go there. I haven't knit in weeks. (I'm pretty sure that between the Not Knitting and the slowed reading pace, my life has become completely discombobulated. I will attempt to rectify this over the next week.) What's on my needles? Well. . . this summer top (nearly finished, but not quite). And I just signed up to knit this for the Through the Loops Summer Shawl KAL. (I can never resist the call of lace in the summer, and Kirsten's designs are The Best.)
LISTENING TO . . . All of my favorite git-r-done music: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stone Temple Pilots, Jack White, the Black Keys, Foo Fighters, and - of course - my go-to-in-a-crunch Pearl Jam.
THINKING ABOUT . . . Deadlines, attachments, letters of support, and case statements. (July 1 is almost here, though. Just sayin'.)
DREADING . . . Well, really nothing right now. I'm already In The Thick Of It. Not much more can shake me at this point.
HUMMING . . . Thriftshop. Macklemore. (This is fucking awesome.)
(Sorry. Can't make it fit.)
PLANNING . . . What to take on my week Up North. Because the tide is changing. And I'm cottage-bound for a whole week!
CELEBRATING . . . Getting everything done. And . . . Vacation. Starting. Tomorrow.
DRINKING . . . Yes.
ITCHING TO . . . Knit. Read. Just be.
NEEDING TO . . . Get caught up - at least a little - with LIFE around me.
ORGANIZING . . . (Are you kidding me???)
INSPIRED BY . . . Ice pops. I saw this recipe in a magazine and I've been thinking about making ice pops ever since! (I need an ice pop mold first, though. Because it might be the cutest part.)
DELIGHTED BY . . . My new Not Crocs. Kind of like Crocs. But Keens. And cooler.
How about YOU? What's happening for you RIGHT NOW?
