WELL. Since there's a Bane sound-alike screaming outside of one side of our flat and the seagulls from hell that live on the other side have been at it since 6am, I'm finding it a LITTLE hard to concentrate on work and figured I'm overdue for a currently post! So, here we are.

I promise that I won't rage-type this entire thing.


A cute little baby set for a girlfriend from college! It's a hat and a cocoon and it's darling! I'll take some photos of it before I ship it off! I think I'm going to start on a big winter blanket for me and Ryan tonight, that way it'll get done some time in December??

Listening to

Ed Sheeran's new album, X. Particularly, Photograph on repeat. I'm a sucker for a good angsty song! Plus, it took me like, seven years to listen to his last album after Ryan recommended it to me and I ended up loving it, so lessons have been learned and I'm all over this one.

Working on

Well, nothing right now because of these god damn birds, but! Work has been fab for a while and continues to be so. I'm stoked. It feels good, and I've managed to (nearly) perfect a work when I'm working, play when I'm playing attitude towards life so a lot of the resentment (we all go through this, right? if we're being honest with ourselves?) I was feeling towards my business has melted away!


Poor Ryan. We I watched about 35 hours of Buffy the Vampire Slayer this weekend (while Ryan sobbed on the inside). No regrets.

Looking forward to

A very special someone has a birthday this week, and another very special someone just got engaged, so nobody is safe from surprises and cakes and presents these next few months! The best things happen during the summer, I swear! :)


The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith aka J.K. Rowling. I'm hooked! I've also failed miserably at keeping up with posting proper thoughts on the books I've been reading, but here's a list! I really loved Paper Towns and On Beauty and finished Mom & Me & Mom just before Maya Angelou passed; I highly recommend all three!


How fun Bristol is during the summer! I think we've got things planned for every weekend through September, which is a nice change from huddling inside and trying not to freeze to death!


Okay, the birds seem to have quieted and the crazy guy yelling outside has put down the bullhorn and is just using the power of his lungs, so I'm going to get back to it!

Hope that you all had great weekends!

Happy Monday!


  1. Haha, you are so funny... LOL @ the Bane reference! Sounds like life is treating you well, lady!

    1. Yes, for sure! No complaints! (Well, mild ones. Like the BIRDS and the YELLING outside.) But other than that - things are good!

  2. I am getting crocheting lessons next week! Finally! We will see how I do, lol.

    I am also currently reading The Silk Worm and listening to Ed Sheeran on repeat (as well as Sam Smith. of course). Great minds!

    Bristol seems amazing during the summer! It is a bit too hot here in Orlando for me but I am trying to make up for that with trips to Diagon Alley! :)

    By the way, I love everything about that picture!


I love hearing from you! I try to respond to comments by email, so if your email address isn't linked up to your profile I might have a hard time getting back to you (although I'll do my best to try). Of course, if you'd like to maintain your ninja status, I totally understand that as well!
