Reading… The Year of Magical Thinking. This critically acclaimed memoir details the year following the death of the author’s husband. I expected it to be sad but I’m finding it more depressing than sad. I’m about a quarter of the way into it and so far it’s primarily focused on her believing that he’s not really dead. If it doesn’t pick up soon, I may have to put this one down.

Listening to… Happier in Hollywood. I’m a huge fan of the Happier Podcast so I was excited when Liz started a new podcast with her best friend and co-writer, Sarah, about finding happiness in Hollywood. It’s a little similar to Happier with a bit of Hollywood stuff thrown in (I find the business of Hollywood kind of fascinating).

Eating… watermelon. A couple of weeks ago, I decided I needed to embrace the foods of summer and picked up a watermelon. I’ve been trying to reach for the watermelon instead of the chocolate when my sweet tooth strikes. It’s become a regular on my grocery shopping list.

Watching… The Middle. I haven’t been watching a lot of TV lately, but when I do, I’ve been on a sitcom kick. TiVo had recorded a bunch of episodes of The Middle as a suggestion but I’ve almost watched all of them. I would like to find a new (at least to me) sitcom that I can watch. But for now, I’m enjoying watching really old episodes of The Middle. I forgot how little Brick was when the show began.

Loving… my new iPhone armband. When it warms up enough that I’m no longer wearing a jacket with pockets, I like to carry my phone on my armband when dog-walking and doing yard work. My old one had reached the point that the velcro was always coming loose. I wanted to get a replacement that would actually let me use the screen so I opted for this one. It’s a little bit of a pain to take my phone out of it’s case to put it in this, but it’s worth it.
