Currently In ... May

Hello dear friends!  We are now mid May and I am currently looking at a beautiful rainbow.  People are starting to talk about cold it's getting and I'm thinking it won't be too much longer before we'll need to make our first fire of the year. 

Auckland SciFi Book Club in May

Reading: I took a break from the knitting mysteries to read Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry and I've just finished that.  I'm trying to decide whether to read The Girl With All The Gifts for the SciFi book club next month.

Watching: Season finales of Agents of Shield, Grimm, Greys Anatomy, and Castle.  And we're half way through Game of Thrones already :(

Listening to: I had a great time at the Alice Cooper and Mötley Crüe gig at the start of the month, but this week its been Dancing Queen, over and over and over again - I have harmonies to learn for Choir and I'm finding it très difficile.

Eating\Drinking: It's been cold enough some mornings to warrant a hot bowl of porridge for breakfast a few times this month.  I've also enjoyed a few Speight's Mid Ale - it's a 2.5% beer.

Feeling: Happy that I finished my first trail race!

Working: Apart from my harmonies for choir, I'm also working on my couch to 5k program.

Anticipating: A very busy week ahead full of fun stuff like Ice Hockey, Lions Dinner, Rugby, Ice Skating, Choir, and hanging with friends.

Planning: I've started scribbling down some thoughts on a Scotland holiday for next year and seeing if I can fit in a trip to Iceland and/or Norway at the same time.  I'm also formulating some ideas for our winter mini-vacation.  We really enjoyed our snowboarding Ohakune holiday last year and we're trying to decide whether to go again or go somewhere different.

Needing: to find a way to get stronger for trail running.  I'm not sure how or if I can combine yoga and weights to achieve what I want.  Maybe I need to talk to a coach or a personal trainer or something?

Loving: Running :)

Wishing: A big congratulations to my sister-in-law and her husband who welcomed a new baby boy to their family.

Enjoy the rest of your month!
