the sunday currently, volume 92.

summer is blooming around here;
the crepe myrtles have begun making appearances.

Good morning! And Happy Summer! I'm coming to you with a somewhat hastily-written edition of The Sunday Currently this morning. Justin & I went to see Edge of Tomorrow last night [which I actually ended up liking a lot more than I thought I would], & we didn't get in until late. Lately, I've been drafting my posts on Saturday afternoons, but alas, I didn't get to do that this week. My apologies for a bit of a truncated version this week. 

As soon as I am finished with this post, Justin & I are heading out for breakfast - hopefully at Dixie Grill, since we had Jimbo's yesterday morning. Here's to a happy weekend!

C U R R E N T L Y . . .

R E A D I N G  Emma, by Jane Austen, which I'm excited about, as I have never read it before. 
W R I T I N G  a ridiculous amount of ridiculously long to-do lists lately. We have a move coming up, which I plan to write a little more about soon.
L I S T E N I N G  to the hum of the fan. I'm writing this edition of The Sunday Currently quite early on this Sunday morning. Lately, I've been writing & scheduling them ahead of time, but this one is being written in real time. Every once in a while, I can hear a lone car going down the street outside our window, but that's it. 
T H I N K I N G  that I've been having the weirdest dreams lately, & they haven't been all that good. Sometimes, dreams can be draining. Also, that I've been loving June Blogs, & that it has really jump-started my blogging motivation, which I am ever-so-thankful for.
S M E L L I N G  our American Boardwalk candle, just like last week. Justin thinks it smells like coffee, but I think it smells like caramel corn. Either way, we bot know that it just plain smells good.
W I S H I N G  it was easier for me to wake up super early every morning. 
H O P I N G  for a delicious breakfast, heavy on the coffee, as soon as I've finished this post.
W E A R I N G  pajama shorts that I got on a trip to Charlotte a couple of years ago, as well as one of my favorite t-shirts.
W A N T I N G  a steaming cuppa joe, as well as a biscuit with grape jelly.
N E E D I N G  to relax today, as well as finish the laundry.
F E E L I N G  tired, though proud of myself for trudging out of bed. I still have squinty-eyes. WAKE UP.

Now, it's off for breakfast. Bring on that coffee. For real.

I love the smell of the American Boardwalk candle! So yummy smelling!

I always say I am going to try a Jane Austen book and then never do, perhaps now this will motivate me to!

That picture is gorgeous! I love the sun in the background. It sounds like you're up super early on a Sunday! I love it when I can sleep in so I've always gone to church on Saturday just so that I can sleep in and have a lazy morning with my puppy. But lately I've been going to the church my dad's at right now and they only have a Sunday morning service, so I've been getting up at (what feels like) the crack of dawn to head in early with him. :) I hope you had a great time at brunch.

Oooo what did you have for breakfast? :9
siddathornton said…
Ooh I love Jane Austen! I haven't read that one either! I hope breakfast was amazing!
siddathornton said…
It was amazing! We went to Dixie Grill, one of my very favorites. I'm liking Emma, too!
siddathornton said…
I had a delicious omelet, fresh fruit, & a biscuit with jelly!

Thank you about the photo - I like how you can just barely see the pink of the blooms. I was up early this past Sunday, & I loved it. Whenever I go to church with my mom & dad, we go at eight, & that has always felt SO early. I miss going with them, though!
siddathornton said…
Try them! They are a bit wordy, but once you get used to that, they're actually quite interesting & funny.
siddathornton said…
It's one of my all-time favorites, definitely! YUM!
siddathornton said…
Next time I am at the library I will see which ones they have!

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

beautiful flowers all around vail
readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
