Currently – April 2019

Currently – April 2019

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…

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…

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…

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I caught up with a few friends recently for a reading vacation. We dubbed it Reading Retreat 2019, and we had a blast! I promised I’d tell you guys about it, so here I am! My friends and I have been saying forever that a reading vacation sounded like fun. You too?!? Finally we said, “Enough talking. Let’s make it happen!” (We’re getting better at saying that, and I’m glad.) Donna…

Voilà! February 2019

Voilà! February 2019

This mid-winter time of year can be tough, y ‘all!  The cold.  The dark.  The sickness.  The dark.  The post-holiday letdown.  The dark.  These things can drag us down.   Today I want to focus on things that I’m loving right now!  “The Good List” as Tsh Oxenreider calls it! Salt Fat Acid Heat, a documentary on Netflix.  This stunningly beautiful show whisks me off to different parts of the world and explores the basics of good cooking.  Since travel and…

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…
