Autumn Adventures 2021 – September

Autumn Adventures 2021 – September

AUTUMN IS HEEEEEEERE!!!! Hooray! High temperatures here in Savannah, Georgia are staying under 90 degrees, so that’s a sure sign of autumn! We’ll take it! And we’ll dream of cooler days to come! I’m linking up with Leslie to share my list of autumn adventures! Here’s what I hope to do during September, October, and November: Give blood: I scheduled an appointment for last month, but the site had to close early. Later this week I’ll go to my local…

I’m sharing what I’m CURRENTLY up to following prompts given by Anne at In Residence. September’s prompts are: beginning, ending, loving, picking, and posting. Let’s do this!!! I am CURRENTLY… beginning: my Christmas shopping. I loving buying gifts for family and friends, and I love having it wrapped up (no pun intended!) by Thanksgiving so I can rest, enjoy the whole season, and focus on Advent. Between all that and the ongoing shipping delays we’re dealing with, autumn shopping seems…

It’s that time again! Anne over at In Residence has provided new prompts for a new month. Here are MY responses. eating: an amazing pork grilled cheese sandwich for dinner just now at Clyde’s Table and Tavern in Cleveland, Georgia! The best smoked pork barbecue I’ve had in a long time on buttery, toasted bread with both cheddar and pepper jack cheese. With really good coleslaw and delicious (vinegar base) barbecue sauce. Y’all!

I’m linking up with Anne from In Residence to share what I’m CURRENTLY celebrating, collecting, gifting, thinking, and trying. Here we go! I am CURRENTLY: celebrating: our 32nd wedding anniversary! Our actual wedding anniversary abounded with emotion, not only from deep love for my guy, but also because that’s the day our son and daughter-in-law headed back home to Alaska after being in our local area for a few weeks. Goodbyes stink, y’all! But never fear! We celebrated the next…

It’s time to link up with Anne at In Residence for this month’s Currently prompts! Here are MY responses to the prompts. How would YOU reply?!? I am CURRENTLY… consuming: less food! I’ve been using the Noom program for a couple of months now. Its food log tool (especially the visuals) has been eye-opening and incredibly helpful. (Here’s my affiliate link if you want to scope the program out. I highly recommend it!) exploring: the Biltmore rooftop! We recently camped…

Hooray for Currently, my favorite link-up! Anne from In Residence gives us five prompts each month, and we see where they take us. This month our prompts are appreciating, anticipating, collecting, starting, and finishing. I am CURRENTLY… appreciating: any and every good thing, big or small! My heart is weary of anger and dissension, so I’m choosing to watch–with even more intention than usual–to find The Good! Today’s good things: Jamaican Me Crazy coffee in a special mug; gentle, rolling…

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…

Mystery Trip

Mystery Trip

Over the years my parents have enjoyed group travel with a local company.  They’ve traveled to some amazing places!  Sometimes the company offers mystery trips.  Passengers sign up for these trips not knowing where they’re going or what they’ll be doing when they get there.  My intrepid parents have enjoyed a few of those trips! A few weeks ago my husband and I asked Mama and Daddy if they’d like take a mystery trip with US!  They were quick to…
