I’m currently loving the time of year. This year is moving right along and I’m happy that it’s June. I’m happy that the days are full of sunshine plus it’s nice and warm. I’m hoping that the temperatures continue to be in the 70’s and 80’s for a little while longer. I’m in no rush to see 90-degree weather.
I’m currently reading Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I know this has been out for about 10 years, but I’m just now reading it. I saw the movie when it came out, but I never took the time to read it until now. LaKita from Simply LaKita recommended Elizabeth’s podcast Magic Lessons (which is a good podcast especially for writers) on her blog the other week which reminded me that I always wanted to read Eat, Pray, Love.
Currently Listening To
I’ve been listening to Beyonce’s Lemonade since it came out. Along with my usual old school music. I know that I’m officially old because I rarely listen to new artists these days. I have my favorites and I pretty much stick to listening to them.
I’m still listening to Joyce Meyer podcasts too. I listen to one of her podcasts almost every day. They are great little doses of knowledge.
I just started watching Jane the Virgin last week and I love it. I watched season 1 on Netflix and now I can’t wait for season 2 to be added to Netflix.
Currently Obsessing Over
I’m currently obsessing over how much sugar my kids eat in a day. I watched a documentary about sugar on Netflix. Now I’m counting how many grams of added sugar my kids get each day. Two things with added sugar (yogurt, cookies, fruit snacks, popsicles) and they are pretty much at the limit.
Currently Working On
I’m currently working on sewing another dress for my daughter. It takes a lot more time to sew something than I imagined. Although my mom has been sewing stuff my whole life I never really paid attention to how much time it takes to make something. And since I’m a newbie I’m really slow 🙂
I’m also painting a mail organizer/corkboard that I’ve had for years and never used. I’m painting it with blue chalk paint. It’s not a big job and it shouldn’t have taken more than a day, but I ran out of paint. So I need to go to the craft store this week and buy another jar of chalk paint so I can finish it up.
Currently Excited About
I’m currently excited about Summer Reading Club at our local library. Every year during the summer our library has lots of FREE fun activities available for kids. My kids are most looking forward to tye dying t-shirts and seeing the magic shows.
I also can’t wait for my basil to be ready in my garden. I love having fresh basil to make salad dressing and pesto.
