I keep meaning to put up a recipe post for all y’all FODMAPers. I’ll have one up soon–promise!
Maybe that can count as the ‘procrastination’ on this ‘Currently’ post.
In the meantime, here are a few ‘current’ happenings and favorites for me this month.
Currently reading: I finished Rocket Boys by Homer H. Hickam, Jr. about a week ago. It’s the memoir on which the movie October Sky was based. It took me a while to get into the book, but by the end I found it very charming. I’m glad I read it!
I just started Colson Whitehead’s new novel The Underground Railroad that everyone’s been talking up and man, it is hard to read. It’s pretty brutally honest about the cruelties of slave plantations. I think it’s totally necessary to be honest about that time in our nation’s history–not that long ago, in a way. Still, it’s not for the faint of heart.
Currently watching: Nothing. I finished the final season of Downton Abbey, and the Fuzzy Face and I haven’t watched Star Trek in a while. I’m okay with reading for now. 🙂
Current food: Hmmm…hard to say. Definitely fresh fruits and veggies have been hitting the spot, with it being so bananas hot here. I got a honeydew at the grocery store and it’s been so fresh and sweet!I’ve also been enjoying smoothies and hummus with fresh veggies for snacks.
Current drink: Tazo ginger green tea was on sale the other day, and I’ve been drinking it iced every morning with my mid-morning snack/elevensies. So refreshing and cool!Current bane of existence: Insomnia. I’ve been sort of sleeping in spurts every night, waking up every hour or so. I don’t know if it’s the heat or what. One day I ordered a decaf iced mocha at like 4 pm because it sounded good and was awake until like 4 am–lesson learned–but the last couple of nights since then have been rough too. Weird.
Current accomplishment: I got a temp job for the next couple of weeks. Not exciting–cleaning private student apartments–but it’ll pay my rent until I start teaching again at the end of August.
Current non-guilty pleasure: Riding my bicycle! In addition to riding it to and fro for various errands, I’ve been going on lots of rides with the Fort Collins Cycling Club!Thursday night the club went out for pizza afterward at a place I’d never tried. The place had gluten-free–and it was darn good! Definitely going back there again.
Current bane of existence?
Stay cool, friends.
