Hello to July! The month has just begun, but we have already celebrated a holiday, remembered a birthday, started VBS, and we are down to just days until Jordan returns! I think it is going to be a great month! But, it is summer so I would not expect anything less than glorious!! The AC is doing a fine job and the humidity is not terribly oppressive, so we can enjoy the heat without passing out in it. Perfect summer:) So, time for July’s “Currently” link-up. I would love to know what you have been up to currently! Share in the comments. As for me…..
Currently, I am:
EATING – out a lot less often and just eating healthier in general! One more perk to summer, in my opinion. Eating healthy is not only tasty but always seems easier in the summer. I do love vegetables and the fresh vegetables are just amazing right now. And, has eating out become ridiculously expensive, or what? I would much rather eat at home (most days) but the prices lately really take any allure and pleasure out of restaurant dining. I will take a home-cooked meal any day!!
FEELING – annoyed with this cold/allergy/sinus thing that has been lingering for over three weeks now!! Almost four. The laryngitis lasted for over two weeks but has finally cleared, and most of the other gunk is better. But I would prefer gone. Besides, isn’t this something you are supposed to deal with in the winter?!?!
GOING – to get my hair cut today! Hooray. I have been trying to let it grow out some but have no idea why. I never like it when I do. I’ve also been clipping away it – to some degree or another – myself for months. It is not a good look. So, today is the day for a real haircut. With a professional who actually knows what she is doing and does not use repurposed craft scissors!! Imagine the possibilities…..
ORDERING – a few bits and pieces for some ongoing home improvement projects. We have been on a roll lately with updating a few things around the house. Things like bathroom cabinets (which were painted not replaced), hardware for the front door annnnd….new doorknobs throughout the house. For every door. Yes, I am excited about doorknobs! It is a bigger project than it sounds because there seems to be a door everywhere but it is going to make such a big difference! It’s the little things:)
REALIZING – I do not have to say yes to everything. Even if something is worthwhile. Even if I have the time or the resources. I can still consider things and I have the option to decline. To just say no – without explaining myself fifteen different ways. I can choose to say no sometimes – and it is okay. Maybe this is something I should have realized a long time ago, but I am just now getting comfortable with this reality.
And that is it. Another look at my life “currently”! If you have been enjoying summer’s good food – please share a recipe or even a suggestion for something good from the kitchen!! You can also go here to read what others are currently ordering or realizing!
