I haven't posted one of these in a while, and Kimmi's post reminded me of that ...

Reading...The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay...after reading blog post and review after blog post and review recommending this book, I'm finally reading it. 

Listening...right this very second as I type this, Black Balloon by The Goo Goo Dolls.

Thinking...I should call my loved ones more.  A phone call really does not take that much time and effort.  I spoke to my cousin today for 45 minutes, and I loved every second of it.

Wishing...that I was a lottery winner, but really, when am I not wishing this?

Planning....a Mexican feast with some friends this weekend at Dos SeƱoritas, a restaurant that claims to be "The Only Authentic Mexican Food in Sydney".

Wearing...a grey dress with silver sandals; not my most exciting ensemble.

Loving...this note from my stepson (he turns 8 this week); I'm pretty sure it is one of the sweetest gifts I've ever received.  Yep.  I'm blowing up all my social media with it.  He told me that he wrote it in "American" so I would understand (mom vs. mum) and that made me giggle through tears.

Feeling...hungry; it's getting close to lunch time, and I'm a girl who likes to eat.

Wanting...a week long (at least) holiday with my guy.

Watching...this should really be titled what I'm not watching...I'm in a fall film challenge with 25 movies to watch; I've watched six; others are finished.

What are you currently doing?


  1. That note from your stepson is so sweet! I can't wait to read what you think of The Sea of Tranquility! Hope you enjoy your Mexican feast. :)

  2. I havent listened to Goo Goo Dolls in so long. How cute is your stepson for writing that. I saw it on Instagram and my heart melted!

  3. i still can't get over that note. the cutest!! it's always the little things. also that song - swoon. i love these currently posts! such a great way to catch up :)

  4. I am currently in bed, home on a sick day with bronchitis and laryngitis, listening to The Martian on audiobook. Very sweet note from your stepson, by the way.

  5. oh please please on all that is good and holy in this world, please love the sea of tranquility. pretty please.
    i love the goo goo dolls, not a fan of that partciular song though #don'tjudgeme

  6. Awww, that note is so sweet!
    I'm pretty sure I could live on Mexican food. Have a great time!

  7. I'm always feeling hungry, close to meal time or not. LOL

    I love the Goo Goo Dolls.

  8. I wish I were more of a phone person, email and text is so impersonal but I am horrible at phone conversations.

    Kid notes are the best! I have the first I love you note my daughter wrote me which is all in pictures.

  9. I need to make more of an effort to keep in touch with people. I kind of suck at that.

    As for the film challenge, I wish it wasn't "the first three to finish." I wish it was that everyone who finishes gets entered for a prize or something. We'll see what happens next time.

  10. That book is so good, hope you are liking it. Yes, to food especially Mexican. What I wouldn't give for a week off to just rest and read!

  11. The note from your stepson is seriously the sweetest! And I hope you can make it to that Mexican food restaurant with your friends! That would definitely be what I would miss the most about Texas!

  12. Stop it... his note in "American"... SWEETEST THING EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. That note still makes me smile. I love it. Those are the kind of notes that you keep to remind you of how sweet they actually can be when they are being bad. Ha, ha!

  14. I forgot all about that Goo Goo Dolls song! The Sea of Tranquility has been on my list FOREVER. I need to bump it up a little bit. That note truly is the sweetest thing!

  15. I'm hungry right now, and that photo of the Mexican feast definitely didn't help. Luckily, I'm making burrito bowls for dinner, so at least I'll get to feed my craving for Mexican flavors!

    I saw that you rated The Sea of Tranquility 5 stars on Goodreads (yes, I'm a stalker), and that made me so happy! I love that you loved it too!

    I know I commented on the letter from your stepson on Instagram already, but it really is adorable and so heartwarming!

    And finally, the fall film challenge. I've only watched 5, if that makes you feel any better. I doubt I'll finish, but the crazy competitive side of me really wants to. I guess we'll see.

  16. Cutest Note EVER! Also so glad that you liked Sea of Tranquility! I so wanted to do the Fall Film Challenge but I honestly forgot all about it until like....last week? Yeah...so...

  17. Aww, such a lovely note. How sweet! Imagine how many books we could buy if we would win the lottery!


I love comments, and I enjoy our interactions. I respond via email, but if you're a "no reply blogger", I can't. Don't think I'm ignoring you!
