Watching | Jaws
> It’s Shark Week and our annual tradition is watching “Jaws”. It’s hard to believe the movie has been around since 1975. Wow, I feel old. But it’s a classic and we have so many of the lines memorized. “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.”
Reading | Strip Tease
> I’ve become a big fan of Carl Hiaasen novels. I started with “Bad Monkey” and was immediately chastised for not reading them in order. So, I’m going back to the beginning and am currently reading “Strip Tease”. I like the South Florida setting and the juxtaposition of comedy and crime.
Working On | Fantasy Football
> Our seasonal distraction is Fantasy Football. We almost gave it up after last year. Hopefully this season will be better. Every year we seem to develop a series of rituals that we think are going to help us win. Like eating chicken and waffles on draft day. Oh, and wearing our favorite team’s jersey on Sundays. Wish us luck!
Feeling | Relieved
> The draft for my book, “The Recruiter’s Handbook” has been turned in. woohoo! Even though I still have plenty of other work projects, it’s a nice feeling to have the draft completed. Now, I just wait for the edits. And to celebrate, we’re hoping to take a little staycation.
Planning | Meals
> My travel schedule is light for a next few weeks, so I’m looking forward to spending some time in the kitchen. My plan is to make and freeze a few items – muffins, egg rolls, and maybe some mini frittatas. It’s better for our budget and waistline.
Loving | phd athletica
> Our friend and Pilates instructor just launched a new lifestyle site called phd athletica. I’m in love with graphic tees right now so, I bought one and it is fabulous! The material is so soft! I can’t begin to tell you how nice this tee is. It will be traveling with me everywhere.
Geeking | Neko Atsume
> If you’re looking for an electronic distraction, this is it. Neko Atsume means “cat collection” and that’s what the game is about, collecting cats. You feed them, give them toys, etc. I like that I can be as active or inactive as I want to be with this app. And the cats are adorable – great for a quick moment of zen.
What’s UP with you?
