Currently – November 2018

Thanks for stopping by Out and Back!  Today I’m linking up with Anne at In Residence for her monthly CURRENTLY link up!  I love to see how we all respond to the same set of prompts!  I’m going to keep my responses short and sweet since I owe you some posts about some cool autumn, home decor, and travel stuff! I am CURRENTLY… appreciating podcasts that challenge me.  The Bible Binge positively makes me hyperventilate AND challenges me to slow…

Funny Kayaking Story

Funny Kayaking Story

When I shared my Autumn Adventures Update a few days ago, I told you I had a funny story to tell you!  One of the items on my Autumn Adventures list is to go kayaking twice.  Gene and I love to paddle at George L. Smith State Park which is about an hour or so from us.  We’ve been several times but never when the cypress trees change color for fall.  I’m determined to get pictures of that. Speaking of…

Cozy Minimalist Home: More Style, Less Stuff

Cozy Minimalist Home: More Style, Less Stuff

  Can I confidently decorate my home and enjoy the process? Now I can! Yes! This book reads like a visit with a good friend. A good friend who really *gets* home decorating and is willing to help you with the process. I’ve read the first 4 chapters in advance of the book’s release (in exchange for my honest review), and it’s just delightful! I’ve found myself smiling, chuckling out loud, and nodding my head in agreement. In this book…

Summertime Adventure List – Final Update

Summertime Adventure List – Final Update

Yesterday I shared my Autumn Adventures list with you, and I promised to come back and give you a final update on my Summertime list.  Here it is! 1.  Bake something special.  DONE!  I *did* do some more baking, but nothing too crazy.  While our son was home on leave I baked some peanut blossoms.  You know the ones.  Peanut butter cookies with a Hershey’s Kiss plunked on top.  I also baked an apple cake for my husband’s birthday.  That’s…

Whoopsie!  I missed the 1-month update, so I’m chiming in now, 2 months into summer.  Let’s see how I’m doing on my super simplified Summertime Adventure List. 1.  Bake something special.  It’s been a while since I made something special, and I think it’s about time.  Now, what to bake?!?  >>> I baked a really yummy coffee cake a few weeks ago, but I’m aiming for something a little more challenging!  I need to pick out a recipe and make…
