In the now

I choose to write a post in the Current Style

So here goes

READING: I love reading.....but since I spend my days reading and formatting obituaries for our newspapers sometimes I just want to veg. I've been working my way through Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Dawn of the Dreadfuls which is an interesting read. A co-worker gave it to me or my birthday as we both share a ungodly love for the living dead, I gave her a book titled How to be a ZOMBIE. BUT I just started JOYLAND by Mr. Steven King and its great! I'm slightly ashamed to say that I haven't read much King in my life........ I've watched the movies and made for tv series based on his work (yup I've been one of THOSE people). Honestly I think the books would scare the BEEJEVVIES OUT OF ME. JOYLAND is very good, I just started it last night and was 100 pages in before bed and I thought OH I CAN'T WAIT TO READ MORE OF THIS.

WATCHING: Summer tv is well........summer tv. Not very good. So while I patiently await the return of BREAKING BAD I've recently caught up with MASTER CHEF. I love that show however, Great Baker was on at the same time so I had to pick. Lucky for me I was able to catch up with MC last weekend  on Demand. YIPPY.

LISTENING: The hubby picked up the most recent Miranda Lambert CD for me last night at Target. $4.40 in the AS IS bin........ Seems fine to me. I'll take it for that price. It's enjoyable.

DISLIKING: it's 98 degrees. Not the boy band, those guys can stop by any day. The temperature at 9:52 am. WHAT WHAT?? I am strongly disliking that. I'm afraid to go to moms for a dip in the pool.... What if I boil myself. 

WORKING ON: my best friend is getting married in 78 days so its my job to throw a wonderful bridal shower because she threw a wonderful shower for me last year. I've been busy working on shower decorations. We are creative people. No store bought decorations here. So far I have a tote full of tissue tassel garlands. And I'm working on a really cool collage or magazine cut outs and her pretty little face. Good times.

WANTING: I really wish there was a trip to the beach in my future.......alas not this summer. We honeymooned in Myrtle Beach, SC last September so that was our beach trip. I would love to feel the sand on my feet and hear the sounds of the ocean. I LOVE the beach.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love the beach, too. And I dislike heat as well.

Hey, I like the garland you are creating. Great colors.

Maybe I'll try Joyland, haven't read any Stephen King in a while. I recently attended a bridal shower with all hand made decorations. Impressive, I don't think I've got it in me.
