Welcome to Currently, 10.2018. In my currently, I am struggling to stay afloat in the current. That other definition of current. Everyday just seems to float by. And I fall further behind on all I want to do. Of course, my to-do list is the size of two football fields end to end!! Need to give myself some grace.
Joining Anne in Residence and all the gals for Currently, 10.2018. Anne asked us to share what we are currently collecting, making, planning, taking and wearing. Here are my responses.
…rocks. Smooth, paisley shaped rocks. Plan to paint them. But have been saving that for a month or more. This weekend, though, it’s gonna happen. Come back to check out my finished art work!
…soup. Or I will be. My Prince C. has asked to start ‘soup diet’ for the next 10 days until we go out to Phoenix for the Senior Men’s Major League Baseball World Series. Today was commissary day, and I bought ingredients for a variety of different soup recipes. Crockpot Mexican street corn chowder…a lot like my recipe for Mexican street corn on the cob. Creamy chicken and mushroom soup, white chicken chili soup, chicken pot pie soup and French onion soup. Will be hosting a soup recipe swap and blog hop right here, tentatively scheduled for 10.23.2018. This month’s Tasty Tuesday.
…our trip to Phoenix via Albuquerque. It has been 3 months since I have seen Lauren, Lucia and Francisco. And going on 4 months since I have seen Brennyn, Cady and Mustafa. That’s a long time for this momma/mom/mama/Mimi/Gabba. Lauren continues to have health issues, with a flare-up this past week. Will be glad to be with her, to hopefully help out in some small way. To love on that baby. And to attend the Balloon Fiesta. Then on to Phoenix for a week of baseball. Life is good.
On our trip to the World Series last year, we stayed at the cutest little RV called the Dog Haus. I wrote a review about our experience with tiny living for a week. Check that out, here.
…Melatonin to sleep better. Instead of sleeping more soundly the first couple of nights I took it, I woke up about 2:00 am raring to go! Maybe it had to build up in my system? Whatever the case, I am sleeping like a champ now. Generally I get about 7 hours of sleep a night. Turning out the light around 10:30 pm and getting up with the alarm for quiet time around 5:30 am. Always feel like I could sleep some more but once I get both feet out of bed, and start my day, I realize how rested I am.
If you struggle with occasional insomnia, you might check out Melatonin. But ask your doctor about it first.
….the outfits for each day of the Fall 2018 Capsule Wardrobe. Was so pleased to discover that many of the pieces on the ‘shopping list’ were things already hanging in my closet. Chambray shirt, olive pants, maroon blouse – check, check, check! Want to open my fashion haus to share a few of my outfits but here’s a sneak peek of one for now.
The formula for this outfit was olive pants, white tee, camo scarf, black cardigan and booties, I think. Wore this to the movies where I always freeze. My scarf isn’t exactly camo but had traditional camo colors and was lightweight for our still smothering afternoon temps.
Going to strap on a life preserver or at least stretch out on my air mattress and try to remember to go with the flow. And enjoy the scenery along the way.
Tell me true, what are you collecting, making, planning, taking and wearing? Would love a glimpse into your currently, 10.2018. Are you bobbing or floating?
Going to start my day. This post is one day late. But would you expect any less (or more) of me? Have a great hUmP dAy, loves!!
Hugs and kisses,
