The Sunday Currently | 13

link up your edition of The Sunday Currently with Lauren

reading I just started reading The Poisonwood Bible. Hopefully it's a good book I can get into reading, because it's been a while since I had a good read.
writing a grocery list of some things we need and a to-do list of things to get done in our still not completely unpacked apartment. Maybe I'll write a bucket-list of things to do in our new town. There are so many things to do in central Florida besides Disney World.
listening to the hum of the refrigerator. It's pretty quiet around our new apartment, and we're enjoying it.
thinking that I'm still really bummed out about the Broncos loss last night. Ugh!
smelling some lingering scents of Durango Diner green chile from breakfast this morning.
wishing that the Broncos were still a part of the playoffs. I don't even know who to cheer for anymore, because I don't really like any of the remaining teams very much. Boo!
hoping to save some money in these next few months... and that we start to feel a little more at home soon. I also hope to do some exploring soon.
wearing an old Urban Outfitters tee that says "Guten Tag Berlin" (any German speakers out there) and the new pajama pants my husband gave me for Christmas.
loving the song that you'll find embedded below....
wanting to sip hot cocoa next to a blazing fire with loved ones while it snows gorgeous white fluffy snow outside. We're having an "unseasonably warm" January in Florida right now (at least that's what the meteorologists on the news say), and we're already using our A/C. Yikes!
needing to do something productive today. Maybe I'll even venture outside our front door today. :)
feeling seriously sad that the Broncos lost. I just can't get over it yet.
clicking one of my husband's coworkers mentioned this Harry Potter website called Pottermore, and I've been spending a little too much time exploring there. Yep. I'm a dork.

This beautiful song by Down Like Silver doesn't help my want for snow.....

Happy Sunday everyone.
Now go link up with Lauren and read some of the other editions of The Sunday Currently.


  1. I love that you're craving cold and snow too! You can't take the North out of the girl, huh? (I'm from New York, currently living in lower Alabama.) Hope you're settling in well!

  2. I was rooting for Payton and the Broncos last night too. :( Sorry, girl. But you can root for the Texans if you want… We're watching them play the Patriots right now. Hoping for an upset ;P

    Speaking of venturing outside, how's the weather there in Florida?? We're freezing (not literally) in a chilly 39/40F ha!

    I bought a few HP books from the Pottermore store for my kindle :)

    Hope you're doing well!

    1. Oh I just tuned in... I hope the Texans can pull off a win. I've got nothing against the Texans. :)

      Do you have a Pottermore account? If so, email me your name!\

      I wish we were freezing down here... it's been in the upper 70s and 80s lately. I'm not loving it. haha

  3. I hate to say this but...... I have no choice but to root for the Ravens since the Skins lost last week. And that game last night, well.... it was pretty epic. Did you see that?!?!?! I thought the Broncos had it. Today's Atl/Seattle game was just the same! Great football recently. So, sorry, but, seeing as I live equidistance between the Skin's stadium and Raven's stadium... I have to say I am glad they won last night.

    On another note.... Poisonwood Bible is slow to start. It gets really good by the ending. You're gonna like it!

    I think you should add Winter Park (weekly) to your bucket list. I'll fly down and accompany you. :)

    1. My weekly bucket list... I kind of like that idea. You know there's some pretty great food there, and I have a brewery in Winter Park on my list. Please come down and help me check these things off of my list!

      Oh... and I'm still pretending that game never happened last night. Yuck. ;)

  4. How fun that you live in central Florida- I love Florida! And don't worry- I just had some hot cocoa in your honor:-)

  5. YAY :) love the song you've included in this week's post, & i'm really excited to try out some of the suggestions you left me on my post. i HATE being in a music rut. i'll let you know if i discover anything else note-worthy.

    the scene you described in your 'wanting' sounds lovely. here in NC, we are experiencing temperatures in the 70s. it's hard to believe it's january, & i hate that! i'm a fan of the weather matching the seasons, but we really haven't had much cold weather here. it reminds me of louisiana, really.

    oh my gosh, i've heard of pottermore before, but now i know i'm going to be completely hooked. it's been a while since i first visited the site. i'm such a harry potter nerd... & now i think i may just turn on the movies while i clean the house this afternoon...

    happy monday :)

  6. Newest follower to your blog! Good luck on the Poisonwood Bible! I had a hard time with that book. And I am still crying about the broncos...urgh!

    And the AC already? Bummer. I thought for a while I might need to turn mine on, but then we had a cold front come here in AZ! :-)
