I can’t believe it’s time for another round of what I’m currently obsessed with!
One of the big things has been cookbooks. I’m completely horrible about actually using them, but I still can’t help but collect them! I’ve added a few to my really small collection. There’s something fun about flipping through a cookbook, figuring out what to make for dinner (or lunch for work) and shopping and then making something yummy.
It’s not even funny how much of a Rachael Ray fan I am! I know there are people out there who doubt the whole 30-minute meal thing, but her recipes really do take about half an hour…at least, they do for me. And I saw the vegan one when I was looking at vegetarian cookbooks, and since I have a couple of her other cookbooks, I had a feeling this would be another good one to add to my collection. I’m not vegan, but it’s fun to try new things and new ways of cooking things when you cut out certain ingredients.
Speaking of books…I got the Nook tablet! My old one still works fine, but…it just seemed seemed like time for a new one! Everything seems so much more clear, and the covers look so much better in color than they did in black and white! Things were clear on my old Nook, but somehow, everything seems so much clearer and sharper. I think my favorite thing about it is the cover, which is totally awesome and I can’t stop looking at it.
The cover is a photo from the archives over at the New York Times, and when I saw it, I knew that was the cover I had to get!
I’ve been spending a lot of time on Etsy lately, and I’ve had my eye on this bag. And there’s also this other bag that I also really like too. And I’ve had my eye on a few things at Ruche too. I also really liked this post about “real” readers over on Book Riot. I kind of need to be better about bookmarking cool stuff I read on blogs, because I know I’ve read some interesting posts that I totally forgot to bookmark.
Remember that book jar I was talking about last month? I finally put it together, only to realize the jar I have is nowhere near big enough for all the books I want to have in it. It’ll work for the time being until I decide to get something bigger…or if I want another one at all.
As for music…I have quite a few songs that I can’t stop listening to!
Like Happy by Pharrell.
And Feel Again by OneRepublic.
And we can’t forget about Dark Horse by Katy Perry.
Or Team by Lorde.
And I still can’t get Let It Go out of my head.
To name a few…you can find the full February playlist on spotify. (I’m wingedcreature, in case anyone is wondering). I don’t use Spotify all that much, mostly because I haven’t completely figured out to use it. Other than how to make playlists. But I figured it would be a great place for making playlists, so we’ll see how it works out.
The Olympics! I almost forgot to talk about them! I just love the Olympics, and the Opening Ceremonies this year were amazing. Definitely right up there…they’re definitely my favorite after Bejing. It’s just so fun watching a lot of sports that I don’t normally watch. Like the biathalon, where they ski and than stop and shoot at a target. Or speed skating or curling! And the ice skating was so good this year, especially the ice dancing, which was exceptionally good this Olympics. And it’s cool that you have all of these countries known for skiing and snowboarding competing, and then some country you wouldn’t expect to have an athlete competing in the Winter Olympics.
Honestly, I think that’s it for this month. I’ve been so busy watching the Olympics, and I’ve had some stuff going on (that’s all taken care of now) and I’ve been so exhausted that I haven’t really been into a lot of a stuff this month. Hopefully I’ll have more to share next time!
