I am having a pretty serious case of blogger’s block these days. I am way overthinking what I should write here. Should I write personal essays? Or book recommendations? Children, young adults or adult? Should I write opinion pieces? Should I feature photographs? My questions go on and on and then the day comes to an end and I have written nothing.
So for today, I thought I would go with something simple. A ‘What I’m Into’ post. I haven’t written one in ages so here goes.
The Affair: I think that The Affair may well be my favorite television show right now. The story is so compelling and the multiple perspectives in fascinating. And to make it all the more fun, we have eaten many meals at Lunch, the restaurant where it all began.
Podcasts, podcasts, podcasts. I wrote about this new fascination over the summer and I am still hooked. NPR’s Popculture Happy Hour, The Podcast, Book Riot, All the Books, Get Booked, Read Aloud Revival and Books on the Night Stand are my must listens.
Who knew I liked horror? I could not put down Bird Box by Josh Malarian. I’m reviewing this at Great New Books in a few weeks so I won’t say any more now but let’s just say it was great. And that I now run up the stairs like I did when I was a child if I am the last one going upstairs for the night. You just never know what might be behind you, you know.
We have been having crazy weather here. It has been wonderfully, unseasonably warm. I have been pretty much wearing my fall uniform of jeans, long sleeve tees, cardigans and my favorite leopard flats. Every single day.
A few weeks ago, I had had enough of craving carbs and sugar constantly. I have cut significantly (like almost entirely) back on white flour, dairy and sugar. I am feeling much, much better and will soon be adding these things back in one at a time to see if I can enjoy them in small quantities. Fingers crossed because I truly love ice cream. Like, it’s my favorite food.
The fall colors have been amazing here. I can’t get enough of the leaves against the bright blue sky.
