Can you believe it’s already August and summer break is almost over? Since I had kids the months and years fly by. Probably because you stay super busy when you have little people to take care of. I actually started this post last week as a “Currently July” post, but I didn’t finish it so know it’s a “Currently August” post. 🙂
I’m feeling optimistic about life. There was a lot of craziness going in in the world a week weeks ago and I had a few days where I was concerned about the future of the world. But I’m feeling optimistic now. There are so many more good people in the world than bad. So I feel focus on the good and feel optimistic about the future.
Currently Preparing For
I’m currently preparing for another year of homeschooling my kiddos. I’ve been researching curriculum and different workbooks so I can decide what we will be using for the upcoming school year. Plus, I’m getting our homeschooling space organized. I bought a new bookshelf that I’m really excited about. Because when you homeschool you often have a lot of books everywhere and we were running out of shelf space.
Currently Listening To
I’ve found a lot of great podcasts recently that I am currently enjoying listening to. I really love Bevy Says, this podcast is all about empowering women to live unapologetically. I’m also listening to the Hashtags & Stilletos podcast that features interviews of women entrepreneurs.
I’ve been watching a lot of Quantum Leap on Netflix lately. I’m not even a big fan of science-fiction, but this is the one sci-fi thing that I love.
I’m also watching Ballers on HBO with the Rock and John David Washington (Denzel Washington’s son).
I was trying to sew a dress for my daughter, but it was a little too complicated for my beginner status. So, my mom has taken it to her house to finish it up for me. I successfully made the top, but the skirt portion was where I couldn’t figure it out based on the pattern instructions.
So, I started working on another sewing project. I’m actually making something for myself 🙂 I’m really excited to see how my dress turns out. So far I’ve sewn the bodice and the skirt portion, but I need to connect the two. Then add my zipper and lining and I’ll have a dress.
I’m reading Yes Please by Amy Poehler. It was on a list of books that all women should read that I saw online. And it’s actually a really good read for women, plus it’s very funny.
What are you currently up to?
