What I'm Loving | 8/20/2017

August has flown by, and I guess that means summer is technically over. It seems like every year summers get shorter and shorter, and this year I'm not sure I fully realized it was summer because of the weather here. Apparently the Bay Area summer happens in September & October, so I'm excited for some weather that I'm used to.  This week has been wholly uneventful and it's been great. It was an extra busy week at work so it was nice to have no evening plans booked. I was able to just unwind after work each day which was a nice change of pace. Here's what I've been into this week:

Books :: After my last book taking ages, this week I read a book in five days. Harley requested I read Ready Player One, which is one of his favorite books. I was not expecting to like it whatsoever, but I actually got pretty into it. I didn't love it, but it went by quickly and was a pretty engaging storyline! I'm starting Middlesex now, which was in Oprah's book club.

Listening :: Taylor Swift! She has something big on the horizon; her website went dark, she deleted all her tweets and Instagrams, and she has a performance scheduled at the GMAs on August 31st. So I'm fully expecting an album announcement, and it's put me in the mood to listen to her older stuff again.

Spare Time :: Relaxing, and cooking a lot! I've had the opportunity to try some of new recipes this week which has been really fun.

Style :: I have been banned from any kind of shopping, window or otherwise, since my birthday is coming. Will report back next week. :(
