I’m joining Anne of Anne in Residence‘s and cohost Lowanda of Sunshine and Elephants with the Currently link up where we are sharing what we are currently celebrating, watching, welcoming, preparing, and photographing!
Currently – September 2017
Our son’s 22nd birthday and our 26th anniversary! Tommy is living with us this semester so he can work on his van with his dad and is commuting to Gainesville for his last semester so we had to celebrate early. We all went to Biscotti’s for dessert. After classes were over he left for a concert in Hampton VA, taking his van for a test-trip.
On Friday we celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Ruth’s Chris. I had never been before! It was pretty tasty! It seems like everyone there was celebrating an anniversary or birthday. They decorated our table with red rose petals and signed an anniversary card. How nice is that?
After dinner we were not ready to go home just yet so we stopped by Sidecar for a nightcap.
I heard about Call the Midwife on Tsh Oxenrider’s podcast and the description sounded interesting. This past week I gave it a try and I’m hooked. There are quite a few seasons so I’m good for a while! This is my “alone” show. Michael and I are working our way slowly through the Crown. I’m also looking forward to the next season of This is Us. I haven’t watched the trailer because I like to be surprised. I haven’t decided if I’ll watch season two of Stranger Things. Season one was creepy enough! I don’t usually do scary!
…Having one last year with my daughter. I’m trying to say yes as much as possible knowing that the countdown clock is ticking. Last week she asked me to go to the gym with her. I had already done my workout and hadn’t showered yet. I was still in my workout clothes and I was in the middle of organizing a bunch of paperwork. But I said yes, walked away from the paper piles and had a second workout!
…to do some painting! I’m changing the color scheme in our house. What is currently taupe (hallway, bedroom) is about to be navy blue.
All the things! My last phone had over 6000 pictures before it went for a swim. I had recently backed up the pictures but I still lost the pictures I had taken at the Breakers. Luckily, I had posted some on social media and on the blog so I still had a few.
What have you been up to lately?
