A few months have managed to pass since I did my last post like this. So here are my current "Currently's"  :)

Current Book:
"Me Before You" by Jojo Moyes. It's about a women taking care of a quadriplegic. It sounds like a sad book, but it's actually quite funny at times - as the character has a funny and dry sense of humor. It also really opens my eyes to things I've never really thought about with being w/c-bound.

Current Excitement:
My Friday night date with 2 of my girlfriends. We are having dinner and going to a movie based of a book we read --  "If I Stay". Excited to see it! Fully prepared for tears, since I cried during the book!

Current Fashion:
Well, In 4 days I will begin wear jeans again. (September 1) Even if it's 100+ degrees out. It's September. I'm ready to boycott summer! I miss jean and sweaters so much.......

Current Drink:
I am currently drinking a lot of Bigelow Green tea with Mint. I made a huge batch of it for our party Saturday, so had leftovers. Now I'm kind of hooked!!

Current Love:
The rain. We have had 1-2 good rains/week over the past month - which we need so bad. The humidity is brutal, but I'm okay with it if it's bringing moisture to our dry ground!!

Current Food:
I have to brag on my red-pepper pesto I made for the party. It may be my new favorite. It had roasted red peppers (about 2 cups), 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, 1/4 cup grated parmesan, several cloves garlic, salt, pepper, and I added some lemon.

We used it for dipping bread @ the party - but Monday night I took leftovers and mixed it with whole-grain pasta. Yum!!

Current Indulgence:
Lattes. Lately, I splurge at least once/week and get a Skinny Vanilla latte at Starbucks. So good when it hits your lips...

Currently Pondering
The current theme of my life is pondering what I want to be when I grow up. And then realizing I already am a grown up. Trying to come up with a great master plan. Getting frustrated. And just forgetting about it and praying I can figure myself out.

Current Mood
Calm and quiet.... I haven't been feeling the greatest the past 2 days (I think my body is trying to fight something off) - so I'm finally just listening, and letting it rest and heal. I skipped swim practice this morning and my planned gym workout tonight. It's amazing how much spare time comes about when you take 2 hours worth of training out of the day! ;)

Current New Find
Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar! "Bragg's, Raw, Unfiltered, With the Mother". - It's supposed to change your life and make you super-healthy, apparently. For me? It tastes better than the Kroger-brand cider vinegar.

I will say I tried the 2 oz vinegar, 1 tbsp. honey, and water drink that was supposed to taste good?..... No.

Current Outfit
I'm still in my work clothes - so I'm wearing a white A-line skirt with a navy and white cardigan. It's one of my favorite work outfits! It comfortable with a touch of nautical :)

Current Peeve
Not being able to breath when I run. I assume it's the humidity. I'm too stubborn to take my inhaler.

Current Triumph
I've found a new and efficient way to do audits at work - and that's my triumph this week. I love audits. It makes some odd part of my brain strangely happy!

Current Wish List
New running shoes. I'm annoyed that my Mizuno Wave Creations are so expensive!!!

Currently delaying
"Pulling the trigger" and registering for my half ironman. It's really frickin' kind of scary. That's a lot of miles. But prices go up in a few days!!!

I didn't know you ran in Wave Creations! When did you switch from Wave Riders? I've never tried any other Mizuno shoes so I will have to look at those next time I shoe shop.

I know you are going to do great at the HIM. You have trained hard and smart and hopefully by the time the race rolls around, the temps will drop a bit and the humidity will have gone away. The humidity finally broke here and it's been glorious! It makes running so much more enjoyable.

Humidity is not a fan of outdoor activities, including mowing lawn! I, too, despise it!
I have heard that the book "Me Before You" is great so hope to read it, too! I haven't started our Book Club book yet, so hope to get at it soon!
That pesto sounds so good! I have never raised basil so have never made pesto but do love it!
Hope you feel up to snuff soon so you can resume your training and I hope it goes well!
