Currently! Memorial Day


Time // 12:38 PM
Place // Just being lazy at the house. Greyson is napping. 
Eating // Nothing yet, but I have leftover salmon, some leftover ribs from yesterday's feast, and I'm planning to make and freeze some sweet potato and black bean burritos this afternoon.
Drinking // Water

Reading // I started Confessions of a Sociopath, a memoir by M.E. Nelson.
Watching // Greyson has insisted on Batman and Spongebob this morning. Since he's down for a nap, I'm enjoying the quiet. David and I went to see Star Trek: Into Darkness on Saturday, and we both really liked it. After my formal introduction to Benedict Cumberbatch, I think I'll need to watch Sherlock
Listening // Not much. I still haven't finished my audio re-read of The Night Circus. Whenever I do finish, I plan on listening to Inferno by Dan Brown. 
Pondering // My reading. I have a bunch of new books on my shelves. Eek!
Blogging // Yes!!! I've been doing a lot of it lately, and it feels SO GOOD. Big plans this week for more blogging and a VLOG post for Armchair BEA.
Promoting // The Estella Project. #estellagram. And something new, we will announce this week.
Hating // Having to say goodbye to David for the week. He headed home a few minutes ago, but we had a great weekend. 
Loving // Nice summery weather and a day off. 
Anticipating // A possible vacation. More on that soon!
Happy Memorial Day to all of you! Don't forget to take a few minutes to reflect on those who lost their lives in service to this country. My thoughts are with my uncle, J.D. Green, today who was lost in World War II.

    1. So far, about 10 pages in, I want to kick her in the head, but that's probably not surprising. lol

  3. I just saw Star Trek yesterday and enjoyed it, too. Sherlock is super good, Benedict is always lovely. Confessions of a Sociopath seems so interesting - looking forward to what you'll have to say!

    1. Shannon, I definitely have to give Sherlock a go. I watched part of one episode, and at the time it didn't "stick." But I also wasn't giving it my full attention like I should've.

      Confessions of a Sociopath is super interesting. SO HARD to wrap my brain around the completely different take on the world inside this author's brain, though. The further along I read the more I "get it," but WHOA. Seriously.

  5. I read that as "Batman and Spongebob" and thought that it must be the most awesome episode of Spongebob ever.

    1. It was a fantastic Memorial Day, Lu! I hope you can find that good blogging place soon. It was a struggle for me for a long time, but once "real life" started to smooth out, the rest followed.

  7. You DEFINITELY should start watching Sherlock! Cumberbatch is great in it and the show is just so good. Sweet potatoes in burritos? I've never heard of that but love sweet potatoes. How do you use them?

    1. Lisa, I will definitely give Sherlock a go!

      And here's the burrito recipe. http://www.melskitchencafe.com/2013/02/black-bean-and-sweet-potato-burritos.html

      The filling is roasted sweet taters, onion, pepper, etc. and add the beans and cheese later. Super delicious with a sweet spicy kick.

  10. YOU HAVE TO WATCH SHERLOCK.

    Ahem.

    Yes, you do. Totally for Benedict Cumberbatch too. While he was great in Star Trek, he's AMAZING in Sherlock. LOVE HIM.

  11. Confessions of a Sociopath sounds interesting just from the title alone. I can't wait to hear what you think about it! Isn't it lovely that summer is finally here??? I love the winter but this year I've been craving the sunshine!
