I copied this from my friend, Stephanie. Here are my September currents...

Current Books: Last week I finished reading Bossypants (for book club) and I'm a few chapters into Major Pettigrew's Last Stand (also for bookclub). I have Odd Girl Out beside my bed as well. I'm not in much of a reading groove these days though. 

Current Playlist: Gosh, I've been enjoying silence so much lately that I can't even remember the last time I listened to my iPod. 

Current Color: orange!

Current Drink: Water. And the very occasional
Zevia caffeine-free cola.

Current Food: Red meat. I love it. Can't get enough lately.

Current Favorite Favorite: Micro-fiber cleaning cloths. Yes, I'm the biggest geek on the planet.

Current Wishlist: a fall candle, fall sweaters, warm(er) workout clothes for chilly mornings! It was around 40 degrees every morning last week! Brrrrr.

Current Needs: New jeans!

Current Triumph: I hiked the Manitou Incline with some friends yesterday. It's 1 mile straight up, 40% grade, and a 2000 foot elevation gain. It was exhilarating! I did it last year but I was pretty out of shape after taking most of the summer off to recover from my hip injury. I felt GREAT yesterday.

Current Bane of my Existence: Evening activities and weekend homework. 

Current Indulgence: Pinkberry!

Current Mood: Mostly happy but worried about a couple of friends...

Current #1 Blessing: My husband. We had a great weekend together and I'm beyond grateful for him.

Current Outfit: capris, tee, and flip flops. Gotta milk it while I can since it will be sweater weather before I know it.

Current Excitement: Monday night football, a fun hike with friends tomorrow followed by lunch with another friend, and Bible study begins on Wednesday. It's a good week. 

Current Link: I got nothin'. Except for maybe these Snicker Bar Blondies that I made this afternoon to take to a Younglife BBQ tonight. I'd try of of them if I liked chocolate, but I don't. Hate me if you must...

Re: jeans... if you like Talbots jeans (they redesigned this past year) and know your size, you can find some exceptional deals on their webisite - I just purchased a few pairs for $21.99 each (reg $89!)

Fun post. I am doing the incline this Friday for the first time! Way to go on your hike!

Deena said...

I like this post - lots of details!

Good for you on the major hiking! Wow! My knees wouldn't hold up to that.

What Bible study are you planning to do?

Glad that things are going well.

Sounds like you are settling into your back-to-school/back-on-track schedule quite nicely!

I'm looking for a fall candle, too. Apparently the candle makers and I don't agree on what constitutes an autumnal fragrance because I haven't found one I like yet. Let us know if you find a good one.

Oh, I have Major Pettigrew on my nightstand to be read, too!

Okay...I'm totally copying this. Haven't felt a bloggy groove in the longest time. This is awesome. Agreeing with the bane of your existence. I don't mind the activities, but the whole shoving dinner down our gullets and running, running, running pace is not my fave. At. all.
