Inspired by my friend, Allison, I thought I’d take a go at the “currently” post. Currently, I am …

reading travel books in preparation for a trip to the UK; Sushi for Beginners by Marian Keyes; rereading parts of What Was Lost: A Christian Journey through Miscarriage by Elise Erikson Barrett – such a book of comfort to me this year; and whatever picture books Dylan picks for bedtime. Tonight, it was The Axiom from his Wall-E board book boxed set and Eric Carle’s The Very Busy Spider.

eating pretty much the same breakfast & lunch daily (I’m a creature of habit in that respect) and lots of home cooked dinners. Tomorrow? Something deep fried. I’m leaning toward Oreos but Trent is suggesting Snickers (although as I’m finishing the post, he’s reading up on new foods and it looks like Cowtails might be his pick).

thinking about our 3 day weekend ahead – NC State Fair, Halloween festivities, family, a get together with old college friends, and visit to a local pumpkin patch. It’s going to be full & fun!

enjoying the cooler weather and being able to enjoy the sun a bit today with lunch outdoors. The clouds & rain were dreary and starting to make the days feel so as well.

watching sitcoms (2 Broke Girls, New Girl and The Mindy Project are my favorites) and, of course, any HGTV show I can catch. Inspiration for continuing projects around the foreclosure house!

loving chalkboard art. So much so that I’ve been working on creating my own backgrounds and subway art in Photoshop. Maybe a future Friday Freebie?

What are you up to currently?

    I highly recommend the book What Was Lost: A Christian Journey through Miscarriage for any woman of faith who has suffered a miscarriage or anyone wanting to gain insight to help comfort a spouse, friend, sister, daughter, etc.
