Josh was reading through some of my old blog posts and was making fun of how just about every other time I would say something like, “Wow, it’s been forever since I’ve written.” I’m tempted to say it now… but I won’t. Though I basically just did… Moving on.
I’ve been struggling to come up with things to write about lately. I’ve wanted to write… but the things that are going on in my life are pretty much the same things you’ve heard about: hanging out with friends, trying to find quick meals to make, gardening, etc. Super exciting, I know. I suppose life isn’t super exciting all the time though. I ran across a “Currently” post from another blogger, Iowa Girl Eats, and thought I’d steal her idea. So here’s what I’m currently into to…
Time and place: 9:56am in my office. (Don’t tell anyone… It’s been a slow morning. Likely story will be I’ll write for 5 minutes then get pulled into something else…)
Loving being married. (Don’t hate me, single people. It has it’s hard days, too.) Overall – life with Josh is pretty wonderful.
Wanting it to be fall. I am loving the long days with lots of sunlight but goodness… I’m ready for cooler temps. The humidity and heat has got me ready to move on to the next season. Only two more months… (I went to look for pictures that I took of last fall and this was all I could really find. Clearly I was knee deep in wedding prep last fall!)
Drinking Encore Coffee. My cousin is a coffee roaster and we subscribed to his “tour” which means he sends us a new batch of coffee at the beginning of each month… and it’s pretty much the best.
Watching Poldark Season 2. I have written previously about my love from the shower Poldark. The first season was on Amazon Prime but you had to pay for the second season. Now it’s on Prime too, so I’ve just started watching again.
Listening to the Spotify Sessions Covers playlist. They have artists come in and record sessions of them doing their songs and they have people do covers of other artists songs. I love hearing different takes on familiar songs. Warning… some aren’t the most appropriate – so you may want to skip through some.
(See, told you I’d get interrupted. It’s now Monday at 3:54pm.)
Ordering these books on Amazon: Lizzy & Jane by Kathryn Reay. I just finished the book Dear Mr. Knightley by the same author and I loved it. It had a lot of references to a lot of the classics that I enjoy. I also ordered Just Do Something: A Liberation Approach to Finding God’s Will by Kevin Deyoung on eBook. I don’t actually have a Kindle… but it was $.84 so I’m going to try to read this on my phone. We’ll see how it goes… I’ve heard good things about this book from my cousin Dana!
Learning in 1 Peter. Our church has been studying 1 Peter for the last month or two and it’s been so good. This last week we studied 1 Peter 3:1-6 which is about how we are to be as godly wives. Our pastor’s wife helped speak about the topic and it was just really good. You can check it out here. (They had a really good one for husbands this Sunday, too!)
Snacking on G.H. Cretors Chicago Mix popcorn. We got a Costco membership last week and I knew this would have to be included in my first haul. Caramel corn and cheddar cheese corn put together? Yes, please!
Missing my brother, sister-in-law, and niece. I had such a good time visiting them in Austin a few weeks ago.
Reading The Gospel-Centered Woman by Wendy Alsup with my discipleship huddle. It’s a small book but with a lot of good content. I’m being challenged and inspired to live a Christ-like life with every page I read.
Wishing I could see Wonder Woman again like it was the first time. Do you ever wish that? I enjoyed it a lot – way more than I expected to – and wish I could see it again… but like I’d never seen it before.
Anticipating our trip to Estes Park, Colorado in a couple weeks. We are going with a good portion of my extended family so it’ll be fun to break Josh in with a big family vacay. We’re even making matching shirts…
Welp, that’s it for now!
