Just living

Hello World!
So I thought I'd start doing "Life Lately" style posts.
I do sort of already do that...
But this will be the official titling's of such posts so you can now tell the difference between my posts.


Breathing; Air mostly. Nothing new there.

Eating;
A perfectly aesthetic orange.
And then no-bakes. Which weren't as good as I remembered...
(IF YOU KNOW OF A REALLY GOOD NO BAKE RECIPE THAT DOESN'T HAVE NUTS, OR SUGAR PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP!!!!)

Drinking;
Rooiboos Tea!
( I'm in love with this vanilla flavor we have!!! )

Reading;
1984 - George Orwell
( GUYS I'M SO PROUD OF MY PROGRESS ON MY READING LIST!)

Watching;
JUST WATCHED THIS!
GUYS!
GUYS!
AAAAAAHHHHH!
It was SO AMAZING!!!!
I had heard things about it which made me think it wasn't going to be worth a watch.
But while on a flight home my parents saw the movie, and they enjoyed it greatly.
So my mom suggested I read the book, then watch the movie and do a comparison of the two.
Well, the book has to be one of my new favorites!
I read the whole thing in one day!
( A perk of health issues is sometimes I have to stay in bed = Lots of reading gets done! )
But the movie was an absolutely breathtaking adaption!
I want to now go re-read the book, re-watch the movie, and listen to the soundtrack all day!

Listening; Oh Wonder.
Breaking Benjamin. Needtobreathe. Birdy 
(I currently could name five people who are cringing at the last one mentioned...
But there is something really enchanting about her voice and sound that I just adore!)

Creating; I have currently been doing nothing crafty. Which is sad. I need to remedy that!

Adoring; Blogging!? Like seriously! I have been bitten by a blogging bug! All I want to do is blog. Look at blogs. Comment on blogs. Stalk blogs. Follow blogs. Talk to bloggers. Which in some ways has been amazing, and fun, and in others I feel like I am slowly wasting my summer.

Hating; How often I rely on my strength, and not God's. And how often I size myself up, when I just need to take a deep breathe and move on.


Pinning; Socks. Mostly.

I MEAN THOSE SHARK ONES THOUGH!

Thinking; *I need to refill my water bottle, and find some chap-stick.*
Profound huh?

Looking Forward To;  DANCING!
I don't take official dance lessons (yet) but would like to!
Currently I am part of a group that meets once a month and taught different moves.
(Swing, Waltz, Two-Step, polka, Salsa, Contra, ect,.)

Featuring; EVELYN!

I just found her blog today, and it is beautiful.

  1. George Orwell - 1984, an awesome book. I read it a couple of years ago and am actually keen to read it again.
    The Great Gatsby is also one of my all-time favourite movies. It really is a brilliant classic.
    I'm also going to be starting dancing lessons! I'm super keen on it. I've always wanted to learn how to Waltz etc.

    Will be going over to Evelyn's blog now :) Thanks for sharing.
