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…

UK Vacay – The Food!

UK Vacay – The Food!

Today I want to share some of my favorite meals from our trip to England and Scotland.  Poor England has a bad reputation for food, but we really do like most of it.  We’re all about pub grub! Speaking of pub grub, fish and chips is always a good go-to. Jacket potatoes (baked potatoes) are also a reliable choice. Let’s go ahead and address the haggis issue!  I decided that I really couldn’t spend a week in Scotland and not…

UK Vacay: Beauty from Ashes

UK Vacay: Beauty from Ashes

Welcome to one of the most beautiful little gardens in London!  The remains of St. Dunstan-in-the-East are tucked away not too far from The Tower of London, and they’re well worth the walk. St. Dunstan-in-the-East was built around 1100 (1100, you guys!) and went through several changes over the years.  The Great Fire of London in 1666 caused great damage to the church, but it was patched up.  A few years later Sir Christoper Wren designed a new tower and…

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…

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…
