tssbadge1Time // A very jetlagged 16:21

Place // Still at my desk – despite attempts to write posts on the iPad, I’ve not been hugely successful yet.

Eating // A chicken salad, slightly earlier.

Drinking // Water

Reading // I finally finished Vanished Kingdoms last week, just before I left for a week at home in the United States. I’ve read a lot since then; I managed to finish The Curse of the Pharaohs by Elizabeth Peters, Songs of Willow Frost by Jamie Ford, and The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker this week! I’m now solely reading Skinwalker by Faith Hunter, which is the start in yet another urban fantasy series that I hope to finish at some point this evening.

Watching // We still haven’t finished either House of Cards or Babylon 5! We should be making some headway into both this week, though.

Cooking // I made Lazy Layered Eggplant a second time and it did indeed turn out better when I added more spices. This week I’m hoping to make my own version of chicken saag (potentially following this recipe) as it’s my favorite curry and it would be lovely to have without resorting to a takeaway.

Learning // I passed my driving test! Now I need to find something new to learn, although I have a feeling I’ll still be learning how to drive our car instead of the instructor’s for some time.

Now that my next trip is to Spain, I’m going to start reading some medieval Spanish history. Starting with this book:

moorish spain

Gaming // I’m installing Rome II: Total War as we speak and can’t wait for it to be ready! It’s received some rave reviews so far and, while I am typically pretty appallingly bad at Total War games, I also completely love them.

Loving/Hating // I love that I have read so many amazing books lately; I kind of hate that I haven’t written any reviews for them yet! It’s been very quiet around here lately.

Anticipating // Our trip to Spain in November; sleeping in my own bed again after a week away; reading Chimes at Midnight by Seanan McGuire!

As usual credit goes to Kim for the Currently format!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Sunday and have a great week ahead!
