I am currently…
reading: Liane Moriarty’s new book, Truly Madly Guilty. I recently read What Alice Forgot and found it interesting. This new one was a struggle for me. I was scared about where it was going to go, and I put it down multiple times and had to decide if I was going to finish it or not. I’m glad I persevered! The book did NOT go off into a totally gross direction after all, and I really loved the way the story resolved. I do wish she had skipped the profanity. (Who needs that?) Once again though, as in What Alice Forgot, the author presents some powerful pictures of how couples can really dig in and fight for their marriage and persevere, coming out stronger than before. This I love!
trying: to get better at planning meals. Still. Why is this so hard for me?!? I’m a planner! I *love* planning! I love planning everything EXCEPT meals. *sigh*
hoping: to get some camping trips in over the next few months! Temperatures here in Coastal Georgia are finally cooling off, and that means camping is nearly an option again! We’re planning to do a cool canoe/camping-in-a-treehouse trip in South Carolina and another hiking trip in North Georgia. I can’t wait!
decorating: my house for autumn. Like everyone else in the world–well, in the northern hemisphere–is doing these days! Autumn is my favorite time of year, and I use autumn colors all year in my house.
to-do listing: my to-do list in my bullet journal! What a great tool! I’ve been using my bullet journal for a few months now, and I’m really getting it dialed in to what works for me. Mine is not all beautifully decorated, but it IS functional! No more post it notes all over the place.
