The Little Things
April 27, 2017

AGH. This year is flying by so quickly. As the leaves have shot out on the trees and the grass has turned green, I’m scratching my head wondering where the last two months of life have gone. So, with things moving quickly, I thought I’d squeeze in a “currently” post before the end of the month:

Currently Drinking: Bai Bubbles- a Costco find! I’m also drinking lots of water and a little bit of black coffee here and there.

Currently Eating: lots of guacamole! Going to Mexico makes me crave all the things, so I got single serve containers of guacamole from CostCo and I’ve enjoyed eating them every day after work.

Currently listening to: The Road Back To You podcast (about the enneagram). I’m also listening to the song “Don’t Let Me Down” by the Chainsmokers. We listened to it every day in the car on the way to our work sites in Mexico, so it has a lot of happy memories!

Currently Watching: Survivor! True confession: I watched the first two seasons and then didn’t watch again until the spring of 2009. I’ve watched every season since. This season is Game Chargers, and pulls contestants from previous seasons. The game play has been SO GOOD because they are all returning players, and I’ve been loving it!

Another confession- I love Married at First Sight! Who else is excited that the new season just started?!

Currently Reading: I just finished the book “Slow Kingdom Coming” and it was SO so good. I’m currently reading Hidden Figures, Cold Tangerines (Shauna Niequist), and The Black Swan.

Currently Smelling: The lilacs blooming outside my back door (which is open right now!). It smells so good. I’m also smelling my mahogany coconut

Currently Excited for: Honestly- my knee getting better! I tore a tendon and have bursitis, and that has really limited my life. I’m looking forward to not sleeping on my back with my knee elevated, not walking around in a huge brace, not using crutches, being able to get myself coffee, and getting to go on walks again. Seriously- all really basic, but it’s what I really really want right now.

Currently Wearing: pink shorts, a gray tank top, and cat slippers. haha. On my nails I’m wearing Essie’s In the Cab-ana with sparkle glitter on top! I’m loving how warm it is today.

Currently Loving: Throwing things away as part of the Minimalism game! I’m also loving the kindness of those in my life who have stepped in to do the things I can’t do for myself. I have co-workers who are mowing my lawn for me, stopping by my office most hours to get my coffee or water (it’s a drag to be on crutches and not have any free hands!), and offering encouragement over these last 9 weeks. It’s been mentally taxing at times for me, so their kindness has been appreciated!

 

Now it’s your turn to share! What are some of your “currently” statements for the month?
