the sunday currently, volume 74.



i was going to share our valentine's day photo, but it's quite an awkward one, to tell you the truth
here are the wonderful blue skies and sun instead

Good morning, everyone, and happy Sunday! I hope you have been having a good weekend. Things over at the C Residence have been good and laid back, with yesterday serving as a day for thrifting, having lunch at a diner in Carolina Beach, and dropping in to the antique shops on Castle Street.

Before getting up to write this post, I was having an interesting dream, in which I discovered a whole bunch of long lost cousins. We went out to their country farm lands in a really small town, and we ran around like we were children, exploring. There were two pools, and I wanted to go swimming so badly. But we explored. And when I woke up from this dream, I felt like a kid again. Right now, as I type this, I'm trying to hold onto that feeling.

C  U  R  R  E  N  T  L  Y  .  .  .  

R E A D I N G Reddit before bed like it's my job. TSC-ers, do any of you read Reddit? I haven't worked up the courage to actually comment on anything, but maybe that will happen one day in the future. I learn so much when reading, but I think Justin is tired of my every story starting out, "Well, I was reading Reddit"...
W R I T I N G three pages each morning, as inspired by this morning routine. I can't even express to you how much I love the concept of that website.
L I S T E N I N G to the sound of silence. It's very quiet in our apartment this morning, and all I really here is the zooming-by of cars outside, as well as the hum of the ceiling fan, and the on-off of the air conditioner.
T H I N K I N G that it's time to break out the Spring nail polishes! I'm tired of the dark colors and, dare I say it, the glitter polishes. I'm ready for light, refreshing, airy, pastel goodness. I'm easing in by starting with a very neutral pink I recently picked up from the Wet-n-Wild line, called Sugar Coat. The MegaLast line is definitely one of my favorites from the drugstore, and I am really jonesing to pick up 2% Milk, as well as Private Viewing and Haze of Love. Let's face it: I pretty much want the entire collection.
S M E L L I N G ... well, hopefully soon after this post is complete, I will be smelling coffee and pancakes and other such brunch smells. I hope we go to Dixie Grill, although by now it will be packed.
W I S H I N G that Muggles could apparate. It would make living so far away a lot easier, I bet.
H O P I N G the awesome weather will stick around. Yesterday, the sky was so blue, and there were tons of cotton ball clouds in the sky. It was such a welcome respite from the gray, muggy, gross, rainy, icy weather we've been having. Just as I'm typing this, the sun came out from behind a cloud and shined through our window and onto my face. I'll take that as a good omen.
W E A R I N G a lot of pajamas and house shoes lately. Just being honest. Luckily, this week I have a meeting, which will force me out of the house and into adult clothing (hopefully not in that order).
L O V I  N G my dream from last night. See the introduction paragraph to this post if you need reminding. It just felt good to be a kid again, running around with seemingly not a care in the world, just enjoying getting to know some long-lost cousins.
W A N T I N G pancakes and coffee, if I didn't make that clear enough in "Smelling."
N E E D I N G a life makeover... again. But this time, I'm kind of excited about it. That's a good sign, right? I miss being my best self.  
F E E L I N G so excited for Lindsey and Tison and E.M.T. - I cannot WAIT to meet her.

That dream sounds wonderful! The image of running around with newly-found loved ones is beautiful. Bring on the spring, bring on the sunshine, and bring on the adventures!

brunch sounds delicious. and I love thrifting/antiquing!

I started reading Reddit about a month or 2 ago and I'm addicted! So far I've only been reading sub-Reddits for TV shows, particularly Pretty Little Liars. I love reading people's theories! I need to expand into more informative/educational topics though, lol.

Your posts are always so beautifully written. :) I've been seeing a lot of links to that morning routines site and I love it! I need to sign up for the emails.

I'm starting to agree a little that spring can come. I do like the snow but I hate driving in bad weather! Thank goodness next weekend I get to stay put:)

siddathornton said...

I'm very jealous of how often you seem to be getting brunch. :)

siddathornton said...

I'd love to have some pancakes now!

siddathornton said...

Pancakes are my favorite breakfast food!

Well, unfortunately we didn't end up going on this particular Sunday. We did this past week, though, and it's definitely something I could do everyyyy weekend.

I have been a fan of the winter time for the past few years, but this year has totally worn me out, with its polar vortices, ice storms, etc. Spring, bring it on! I'm ready for flowers and sunshine!

siddathornton said...

As it turns out, the emails are just a link to the week's post. Slightly disappointing. I wanted it to contain all the content so I could read it while lying in bed attempting to get up for the day :)


Thank you for what you said about my writing. That makes my day!

siddathornton said...

It's so addicting! I just read what's on the "front" page, usually. And I like reading the Ask Reddit sub-Reddit. I haven't balls-ed up enough to actually comment on anything yet. All in good time!

siddathornton said...

Brunch is one of my favorite things, ever, but I think antiquing is a pretty close second!

siddathornton said...

It was a fantastic dream. I'd like to have more like that, but mine have been all weird lately.

siddathornton said...

Bring them on, indeed! :)
