Currently: August

Now that the hectic month of July is behind us, I can’t help feeling like the year is “almost over”. I was finally getting used to it being 2016 and now it feels like were at the precipice of the free fall into the holiday season. One foot hanging over the void. Self induced panicking aside, here is what I have going on Currently.C1

hearting – my fur babies. While I always adore our fluffy horde, ever since I got home they have been especially sweet and snugly. Occasionally, they can make me feel like a glorified pair of hands that exist merely to open doors and cans of food, so it is nice when they want to be near me and cuddle while we watch Netflix in the evenings.

watching – we just finished up Stranger Things (amazing!) so we are in binge watching limbo at the moment. When I am home by myself, I have been working my way through Gilmore Girls again and an episode of Difficult People here and there to keep things interesting.

exploring – the wonders of being home. Last month was pretty busy, and with the holidays suddenly seeming a lot closer, I am trying to enjoy the relative quiet while I can. Read a few books, snuggle the cats, go to a movie with the husband, but keeping everything close to home.

creating – a lot of different things. In the last little bit, my creativity has been a bit ADD. A bit of painting here, some hand lettering there, a bit of baking to round things out. Not a horrible thing since a lot is getting done, but there are days that I wish I could settle in and contently work on a single significant project instead of a bunch of smaller ones.

eating – lots of summer veggies. Blue Apron has been highlighting seasonal veggies, and Andy and I have liked it so much that we’ve been picking even more up from the store when were doing the rest of the cooking during the week.
