Currently – December 2019

Currently – December 2019

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 – March 2019

I’m linking up with Anne of In Residence again this month for Currently.  This month’s prompts are scheming, reading, buying, making, and accomplishing.  Here we go! I am CURRENTLY… scheming: okay, planning (because that word makes me happier!) a mystery trip for my parents!  In the past they’ve taken mystery trips with Excursion Tours and really enjoyed them.  Since I love to plan trips and they like to TAKE trips, I’m planning a mystery trip for them/us.  I am SO…

Things I’ve Learned – March 2019

Things I’ve Learned – March 2019

I’ve been wanting to do a “Things I’ve Learned” post for just FOREVER, and I’m finally making it happen!  Hooray!  Here are several things I’ve learned lately. ◊Meteorological spring begins on March 1 while astronomical spring begins on or around March 20, on the vernal equinox.  I’ve said for YEARS that the “official” seasons are off a bit and that, for instance, spring should actually be March, April, and May.  Who knew that the meteorological folks were waaaaaay ahead of…

Currently – January 2019

This month’s prompts for the “Currently” link up are:  choosing, tidying, resolving, exploring, and refreshing. I am currently… choosing books for #theunreadshelfproject2019 hosted by Whitney of @theunreadshelf on Instagram.  I’m not sure if I’ll follow her monthly prompts, but I *do* appreciate her helping me focus on choosing my next read from my “unread shelf” before looking elsewhere!   I think my first reads of the year will be Ecology of a Cracker Childhood by Janisse Ray (recommended by a dear…

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…
