*AKA, I have nothing to write about.
Ah yes, the old "Currently..." or "Lately..." post. The blogger standby, when he or she hasn't scaled Mt. Everest, saved some babies, or done anything else of note recently. Let's get to it, shall we?
Reading: The Fire Outside My Window, by Sandra Millers Younger. The author is a writer who lived through California's Cedar Fire. She and her husband barely escaped the flames, but the book isn't only about them; she intertwines her story with that of firefighters, the man who started the fire, and other residents who lost everything. While I've saved people and their houses from fires, I don't always get to hear their side, so I was really interested in this book.
Listening: Murder mysteries on HLN while I drive to work. Sometimes I don't get to finish listening, and I have to google to see what happened (wait, what? HE was the murderer?!)
Making: Chocolate chip cookies (always, unless I eat accidentally eat the chocolate chips); tacos like the ones I had every day in Tucson (corn tortillas, chicken, cheese, lettuce, green salsa, lime).
Watching: Kung Fu Panda 3. Is it wrong I liked the villain the best? Not having seen 1 or 2, I was at a loss (why are these pandas doing kung fu? how are a tiger and a panda friends?) but the ten year old I was with attempted to fill me in. When I asked her why the pandas don't speak Chinese, since they allegedly live in China, she said it was because they were animals. She's pretty smart, so I went with it.
Exercise: The gym (ugh), trail running, snowboarding. Looking forward to hiking again.
Planning: Starting a book club. Thinking about going back to Iceland. This time a friend wants to go. Wondering what it would be like traveling with someone I know, after so many years of going solo or with strangers.
Last purchase: The Scratch-n-Snooze Cat Tree. The two cats that rule this house highly recommend it.
Anyone else doing anything interesting lately? Hello out there! What's your "Currently"?
