Currently – May 2020

I’m late to the Currently party this month, but I don’t want to skip it!  This month’s prompts from Anne at In Residence are making, missing, learning, loving, and reading. I am Currently… making:  sourdough bread.  This is on my Springtime Adventure List, and I’m happy to have FINALLY done this thing I’ve wanted to do for a long, long time.  My starter did just okay for a couple of weeks until I discovered that whole wheat flour was the…

Springtime Adventures: Update #1

Whoops!  I’m a little overdue with my update!  About a month ago I posted my list of things I hope to do during this season.  You can read that post HERE.  And now let’s take a look at how things have gone!   ✅Finish eating the chocolates from the Advent calendar I bought for my husband.  DONE!  Just LOOK how productive I’ve been!  Actually, I’m pretty sure my husband helped finish this off.  Since it IS his Advent calendar to…

Springtime Adventures

Spring has sprung!  And it’s time to set some goals for the new season.  I thought about skipping Springtime Adventures (like I did during winter), but I decided that this might be the very BEST time to set some fun goals.  So very much of life has tumped over lately due to COVID-19, but we can still opt to write out a simple list of things we want to do! Yes, they’ll need to be home-centric.  That’s okay.  Home is…

It’s time for CURRENTLY!  Anne at In Residence supplies five prompts, and we all share what we’re CURRENTLY up to based on those prompts!  This month we have:  wrapping, baking, lighting, sending, and enjoying.  Here we go! I am CURRENTLY… wrapping:  my brain around the fact that December is here.  I’m certainly not wrapping gifts because I’ve barely begun my shopping!  WHAT?!?  I almost ALWAYS make a point of doing all my gift buying before Thanksgiving.  Not this year! baking: …

Autumn Adventures 2019

Autumn Adventures 2019

What happened to Summer Adventures, you ask?  Heat.  Heat happened!  It’s just too hot here in Coastal Georgia to do much.  Also, since we made our big anniversary trip to England and Scotland in May/June, we stayed pretty close to home this summer.  Oh, and I had foot surgery.  (More on that in a minute.) Then autumn started, and all our attention was focused on our son’s wedding!  HOORAY!!!  It was lovely and beautiful and amazing!  Two weeks after that…

Currently: The Hurricane Dorian Edition

Currently: The Hurricane Dorian Edition

Note:  I wrote this over the last few days as we were waiting (and waiting) for Hurricane Dorian to approach the Georgia coast.  I’m VERY happy to report that we saw very little of Dorian in our area, and all is well here.  I’m currently (HA! but seriously) praying for the Carolinas who are getting roughed up by Dorian as we speak and for those brave, exhausted souls in the Bahamas. That said, let’s get to the actual post! Hello…

I totally missed last month’s Currently link up. I was going to do a UK Vacay Edition and might still backtrack and do it.  For right now though, I’ll play along with this month’s prompts from Anne at In Residence. I am CURRENTLY… ordering:  espresso powder.  I’ve been wanting some for months now and finally ordered it.  Now I just need to bake with it!  Hmmmm.  Any suggestions for a chocolate recipe that can be amped up with espresso powder?…

Each month I link up with Anne’s Currently challenge.  She provides five prompts, and participants share what they’re currently doing relative to those prompts.  I enjoy writing these, and I hope you enjoy reading them!  It’s fun to see how everyone interprets the prompts and replies to them. This month’s prompts are experiencing, appreciating, wish listing, posting, and considering.  I am CURRENTLY… experiencing spring in Georgia, both the good and the bad of it!  There’s nothing like all the shades…

It’s time to play CURRENTLY!  Bloggers from all over the interwebs respond to the same set of prompts, and it’s fun to see how everyone spins it!  Click over to Anne In Residence to see how other bloggers responded to the prompts! Me?  I’m CURRENTLY: GIFTING:  Myself some time to write.  I love telling stories whether in person or here on the blog, yet I don’t always allow myself time to write.  I’m trying to do better about that!  More…
