A lot of the lifestyle bloggers that I follow do a 'Currently' post every once in awhile. I thought it might be fun to do for my slice today! If you decide to try this slice format, this post was helpful when deciding on my verbs!
Reading: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. I've been meaning to read this for quite some time, so when I saw it at our school's Scholastic Book Fair, I scooped it up. I'm 100 pages in and fascinated by Backman's masterful ability to make the reader simultaneously love and hate Ove.
Watching: Season 4 of The Americans on Netflix. Russian spies living in America? A prodigious amount of subterfuge, murder and clever disguises? '80s nostalgia? Sign me up.
Eating: A green tea Kit-Kat that some blessed angel left in the staff workroom this morning with a "Free" sign next to it. If you've never had the pleasure, it tastes like a cross between carrot cake and those ubiquitous orange wafer cookies you can find in every supermarket ever.
Listening: Noam Pikelny's new album, Universal Favorite, in preparation for seeing him live on Friday. I'm a longtime Punch Brothers fan, so I'm excited to see their masterful banjoist live. He also has a wonderfully dry, irreverent sense of humor--just my style.
Loving: The impromptu snowfall that blanketed St. Louis this morning. I know it'll be gone by tomorrow (and it's March, for crying out loud), but there's something so peaceful about snow.
Planning: Our upcoming trip to New Zealand! My husband and I are headed there at the end of May when school ends. Truthfully, he's the master trip planner...I'm just picking out where we're going to eat. Typical.
Waiting: For spring break in T-minus four days! I'm headed to South Carolina, where I'll get to see my brother, my sister-in-law, my parents AND my little sister, who lives in Germany. I'm optimistically packing shorts. It's warmer down there, right?
