Summertime Adventure List

Summertime Adventure List

Summer is here, y’all!  Temperatures are so high here in Savannah we’re under heat advisories every afternoon.  I’m not even joking!  Since today is the first full day of summer, I thought I’d share my Summertime Adventure List.  I’m keeping it short and sweet this time since I’ll be on the road the next four weeks. This summer I want to: 1.  Bake something special.  It’s been a while since I made something special, and I think it’s about time. …

Y’all, we are one whole month into spring!  Who knew, right?!?  It’s been an odd spring here in Savannah, but I’m all about cooler temps!  I know a lot of you have had flat-out WINTER for weeks and weeks (months!) on end, and I know you’re weary of it! Even so, it’s time to check in with my Springtime Adventure List to see what I’ve done.  You can see the original post HERE! •Go camping at least two times.  DONE! …

Random Thoughts on a Rainy Friday

Random Thoughts on a Rainy Friday

We’re having a rainy Friday here today.  Temps are nice.  A cool 62 degrees last I looked.  (Yes, that’s cool for Coastal Georgia!)  It’s been a quiet day.  A pajama day, if you’d like to know.  It’s been a good day for mulling things over, you know? Rainy days always make me miss Europe.  And since I just finished a great audio book set on a Scottish island, I’m especially missing it!  The book is The Cafe by the Sea…

Biscuit Debacle

Goodness gracious!   I pride myself on being a good cook!  I’ve told you the basic rules that my mom taught me.  Usually I do really well in the kitchen! Usually. I’m reading Bread & Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table by Shauna Niequist as part of a reading challenge this year (but mainly because my good friend Sheila, the queen of hospitality, recommended it to me).  It’s a LOVELY book, exquisitely written, and it includes some amazing…

Currently – January 2018

Anne at In Residence is sharing today what she’s CURRENTLY starting, hoping, scheduling, reading, and playing.  Me?  Here are MY answers! Starting:  exercising.  I’m really going to do it this time.  Really.  *sigh* Hoping:  for snow!  Yes, I live near Savannah, Georgia, and yes, you read that right!  We are having the oddest weather situation today!  Temperatures are super low for this area (the predicted high is only 33 degrees Fahrenheit), and rain is moving in from the Atlantic.  Predictions…

Reading Challenge 2018

Ahhhhh!  A new year!  I love the reset a new year presents!  I’m still reflecting on 2017 and thinking about the possibilities 2018 brings, but one thing I HAVE (mostly) nailed down is my reading list for the 2018 Reading Challenge hosted by Anne Bogel of What Should I Read Next and Modern Mrs. Darcy. Anne hosts a reading challenge every year, and I decided

Autumn Adventures – Update #1

Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’ into the future! Which is to say we’re a month into autumn already, and it’s time to revisit my Autumn Adventures List and see how I’m doing! 1.  Have a picnic in Forsyth Park in Savannah.  Not yet, but I HAVE been planning my food strategy for this one!  I’m thinking Smith Brothers will be involved! 2.  ✔Go to the beach at least once.  YES!  Gene and I went to Tybee Island for a…
