Welcome friends, to Currently 11.2020. I am linking up with Anne to examine what we are appreciating, ordering, perfecting, planning, and wearing. I hope you’ll join in with us.
If I were to be totally honest, I am currently not doing much of anything. Our number of positive Covid cases increased by 3,100 in the last 24 hours. The mayor and county judge are fighting about whether the city should shut down completely or not. And in the meantime, citizens don’t know what is open or closed, where they can and cannot go. So this girl is staying her behind right here at home.
Let’s see what I am up to within these four walls.
the medical personnel at the Hospitals of Providence Transmountain Campus for taking good care of me this week. One of my parathyroid nodules was removed on Tuesday. And I being a lazy girl recuperating at home.
a Duke’s mixture of things from clothing to footwear to things for the house. Have seen so many cute fall OOTD featuring warm sweaters, scarves, jeans and duck boots. Decided I had to have some. Scored these Olivia Miller ‘Been Around the World’ (but I haven’t) duck boots for less than $25 and free shipping at DSW. While I was at it, ordered these Abella Chloe booties to replace my old black booties with the suede rubbing off.
Treated myself to a new brown bag. Wanted something with brown and black tones. Picked up this Bag Wizard croc embossed faux leather purse on Amazon. I love it!! While it isn’t at all heavy, it feels substantial. Does that make sense? And right now there is a coupon for 5% off the price.
We have frozen our gym memberships until February. And I have been contemplating getting a treadmill and a stepper so we can exercise at home. These pieces would almost be paid for in the money we are saving by not making our gym payments for 3 months.
my God Made Girl painting. Finished her up on Monday by adding the words, some snowflakes and glitter. Can you tell what I have written around my angel’s silhouette?
It reads, “some angels have crooked wings.”
the photos I will be taking and sharing for our #25DaysOfGratitude autumn photo challenge. Would love to have you join us by posting photos to represent these prompts. The challenge is open until 11.25.2020. I will be sharing my posts daily on Instagram and in a compilation here on the blog on 11.30.2020.
Also beginning to plan for Thanksgiving. My sister and brother-in-law are coming!! Looking forward to having some fun with them hiking, soaking in the hot tub, visiting the local vineyards and maybe heading up to the mountains of New Mexico for a day.
Need to get my canceled trip to see Brennyn and Cady and Mustafa back on the calendar now that my surgery is behind us. Will be going to see Mom and Paul’s mom in December.
an ice bag tied around my neck like a feed sack. Trying to keep the swelling down on my incision and entire neck.
PC is working from home this week to be with me. So grateful.
Autumn Goals Update
- Finish fall housecleaning – having company for Thanksgiving and want the house spic and span. Also organizing, cleaning and purging stuff in our closets and garage. – PENDING = but underway.
- Give myself some grace – here’s how this looks to me…allowing myself afternoons to craft, or to read, to take an occasional cat nap with the kitties, to not run through my day trying to cross off everything on my to-do list. Not sure how that can be made measurable. But I need to permit myself to enjoy a slower pace some days. – Will need to do this even more so as I recuperate. Have been reading, writing, walking and just trying to enjoy life.
- Complete the 40 Days Through the Bible study – started this several weeks ago and it is so good. The study is so well organized and includes a strong Facebook component that keeps participants engaged. – I am working through the last week of this study. It has been excellent but my attention has wavered some in the last week or so.
- Participate in the #25DaysofGratitude photo challenge – yes, going to make this a goal!! Have shared 4 photos so far.

Hope to feel like writing some more posts the end of this week and over the weekend. And to catch up on my blog reading. Not able to do much more for two weeks.
Thank you for visiting. Hope you have something fun planned for this weekend. Some way of unwinding and putting all the crazy that has been this year behind you.
Hugs and kisses,
