Springtime Adventure List – Update 2

Springtime Adventure List – Update 2

Goodness gracious!  I’ve written seven blog posts in my head, but apparently I never wrote them HERE!  And now it’s time for another update on my Springtime Adventure list!  That’s a perfect place to get started again. I wrote a list of things I wanted to do during this spring, and I posted it HERE.  The first update is posted HERE, and now I’ll fill you in on the last few weeks’ adventures. •Go camping at least two times.  DONE! …

Reading Challenge 2018

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

Summertime Fun List – Final Update

Summertime Fun List – Final Update

Autumn is finally here!  Hooray!  Yesterday I shared my Autumn Adventures list, a list of fun stuff I’m looking forward to doing this autumn.  Today I want to backtrack just a little bit and give a final update on my Summertime Fun List.  I shared my progress on the list here and here, but HERE is the original list and a super quick recap. Pantry:  Reorganize my pantry.  Done! Boxes:  Clear boxes out of garage.  Made a lot of progress…

Summertime Fun List – Update 2

Summertime Fun List – Update 2

Two months ago I created a list of things I wanted to do this summer.  One month ago I shared my first update, and now it’s time for me to evaluate how I did during the second month of this project! Pantry:  Reorganize my pantry. I’ve made a LOT of progress!  I originally planned to empty the whole thing then reload it, but I’ve ended up tackling one area at a time.  It looks a lot better!  I may still…

Summertime Fun List – Update 1

Summertime Fun List – Update 1

A month ago (WHAT?!?  A MONTH AGO ALREADY?!?) I compiled a list of things I wanted to do this summer.  I have been on the road and/or sick nearly the whole month (I’m not exaggerating), but I HAVE accomplished a few things! Here’s my list and how I’ve done so far:  (Yes, some of these are more work than fun, but summertime is a great time to do inside work when you live in the Deep South!) Pantry:  Reorganize my…

What I Read – September 2016

What I Read – September 2016

My goodness!  September is already gone?!?  I’m pretty sure it’s June.  But…the leaves ARE looking like they may start to change colors pretty soon.  We’ve had a HOT September here in Coastal Georgia, and when it’s hot outside, we all know what to do, right?  READ BOOKS!  Here’s what I read this month.

Of Library Holds and the Olympics

Of Library Holds and the Olympics

Do you guys love your local library as much as I do?!?  I love that I can put books on hold, HOWEVER!  What is it with library holds and their crazy timing in showing up?!?  I’m a HUGE fan of the Olympics, and all my library holds came in right as the Olympics started!  Seriously?!? So what does one do in this situation?  One deals with sleep deprivation!  Am I right?!?

The Last 10 Photos on My Phone

The Last 10 Photos on My Phone

I saw this fun idea over on In Residence and thought it would be a lot of fun to do here too!  Here are (pretty much) the last 10 photos on my phone.  A gorgeous cappuccino at The Front Porch, a new coffee shop here in my town.  This place is so calm that my blood pressure drops when I walk through the front door. Meet Arwen, my son’s cat.  He (my son, not the cat ’cause she’s a girl)…

Five Things Friday

Five Things Friday

Here are five things I’m listening to these days: (1)  What Should I Read Next?, a fabulous podcast done by Modern Mrs. Darcy (MMD). I was already hooked on MMD’s Facebook page, and then my friend Sheila told me about the podcast!  I might be on my third round of listening to these!  The format is just perfect, the recording is done well, and my “To Be Read” list has never been longer!  On each podcast she asks her guest…

Wishing:  That I could nip away to the Caribbean for a week of reading on the beach.  Oh, wouldn’t that be loverly? Craving:  Brioche French Toast at The Collins Quarter here in Savannah.  They make their brioche in house then top it with Drunken Fruit Compote (coconut vodka, y’all!  Who knew?!?), Candied Pecans and Bourbon-Maple Syrup.  I seriously need this again.  Soon!  (Note:  The vodka cooks out.  It’s all good!) Going:  To the Great Homeschool Convention in Greenville, South Carolina…
