Trading my ashes for beauty….that He might be glorified.
Currently: August 2022
I thought the Currently link-up had been officially laid to rest. I always enjoyed this monthly post and was a bit disappointed. Well, imagine my surprise when I saw that Jen, at Overflowing with Thankfulness, was going to continue it! If you have not visited her blog, you must. She is a great encourager…and how she manages to get five posts up every single week is beyond me. But, she does. You can find the rest of the link-up here and it is open all month so there is plenty of time to join if you are so inclined. That said, let me get started.
Currently, I am
loving – quite a lot, actually. I am loving my crape myrtle tree out front. It is finally awash in pink blooms. I am loving the series of lessons – Boats in the Bible – I am teaching in Junior Church. We have been having a lot of fun with it. I am loving about a half pitcher of ice tea every day. I get my water down first but then reward myself with lots of tea! A few other things as well: keto hamburger buns have changed my life (well, at least my meals!), not all pedicures are created equal and a good one is also life-changing:), and summer meals eaten outside – with a water view – are the best!
wearing – all the dresses. Dresses in the summer are definitely the way to go! I really enjoy dresses any time but they are just so easy-breezy, comfortable, and often extra cute in the summer. No fuss and ready for the day. I think I add a new dress to my Amazon cart every week. It is a bit of an obsession lately.
hoping – all goes well for Jordan’s transition back to Virginia. In last month’s post, I wrote he had 43 days until he returned. Today, that is 14 days. Fourteen! I think he has most of his ducks in a row but, of course, I hear all the horror stories of travel, and, of course, I am a professional overthinker who can imagine how every last-minute detail can unravel. Sad, but true. I certainly will be happy to pick him up from the airport in two weeks. Until then, I’ve included a few of his recent Alaska pictures (here and above)!
dreaming – about travel to Europe. Of course, I want to go to England…and Ireland, too. I mean why not? But lately, we also have been dreaming/thinking – even a little planning – about Italy, Portugal, and even Switzerland. Not necessarily in that order but, apparently, we have the travel bug again. Still early and definitely in the dreaming stage….but even that is fun!
Thanks, Jen, for offering us these prompts and for opening the link-up. And please let me know what you have been up to lately…or currently! I would love to know what you are dreaming about!! Happy Wednesday, friends!
