Reading… Sunburn. I just finished this audiobook. It was okay, but not great. The story is mildly entertaining but none of the characters are particularly likable – they also aren’t really characters you “love to hate.” I’m kind of surprised by some of the glowing reviews. Usually when I really enjoy a book I find myself thinking about it long after I’ve finished. I actually had to refresh my memory of this book when preparing to write this, so for me, it was pretty forgettable.
Trying…recipes from 21 Day Sugar Detox Cookbook. There’s something about the heat of summer that keeps me out of the kitchen. But now that the weather has cooled off a bit, I’m attempting to be better about cooking. I apparently placed a reserve on this cookbook a long time ago, because I was surprised when I received the notice that it was available. It’s such a good cookbook that I think I will purchase a copy. So far, I’ve made chicken and cauliflower rice. There’s a Paleo cream of mushroom soup that I’m looking forward to trying.
Listening to… 99% Invisible – Articles of Interest. I’m loving this series within 99% Invisible. It’s the stories behind clothing. I’ve learned all kinds of things about children’s clothes, plaid, pockets, Hawaiian shirts, and blue jeans.
Loving… my new peacock sheets. My old sheets were worn thin so I headed to Target to find some replacements. I went intending to get the same pattern that I had but they didn’t have them anymore. I was going to go with another set of Threshold sheets, but then I saw these and fell in love.
Wanting… Magnetic Nesting Measuring Spoons. After almost 10 years of use, my old set it slowing biting the dust. I like them so much that I’m going to replace them with a new set. I love that each spoon has two spoons so you can use one for wets and one for drys and the magnets hold them together but don’t require any snapping or unsnapping.
