I was lamenting yesterday about how it is already AUGUST. Where is the summer going?? Make this madness stop! But we still have a whole month to enjoy before school starts and we’re going to make the most of it. As usual on the first Wednesday of the month I’m linking up with Anne of In Residence and her co-host this month, my buddy Shea of Shea Lennon for Currently. Here are some current happenings in August!
~Currently I Am~
Snacking on – Old Dutch Dutch Crunch in Bistro Blend. Nate found these delightful (or maybe evil) crunchy bits of amazingness at the grocery store a couple of weeks ago when we were off to do a taproom lunch. We may have nearly finished the bag in one sitting. They are SO good. For my non-midwest friends who can’t get Old Dutch chips, my runner up is Lays Bistro Blend in Olive Oil and Herbs. Also delightful.
Anticipating – First and foremost getting my hair cut and colored tonight. So excited for a refresh. Secondly, going up to Duluth for Thomas and Friends next week. Ollie keeps asking if it’s the day we’re going to see Thomas. I think he’s getting pretty excited.
Borrowing – I am borrowing a copy of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks from Jen, I have heard amazing things about this book so I need to get reading it. I’m in the thick of my book club book right now, but this one is next.
Admiring – Nate. I’m really proud of him, he’s decided to start getting up an hour earlier than he used to and work on things (at least things he can do quietly) in the yard to fix and clean it up. In doing that, he doesn’t feel like he’s taking time away from Ollie in the evenings. He’s only been at it for a few days and he’s already done a ton of work too. Maybe it will eventually rub off on me, ha!
Purchasing – I’ve been trying to keep my purchases to a minimum lately and I’m intrigued by an idea Shea brought up of only shopping secondhand for a set period of time, but I had to buy a Kermit the Frog Randy T-shirt when my Lularoe enabler consultant was able to score one in the Disney collection. Because it’s freaking Kermit the Frog.
There are many things I love about August, we should start seeing more veggies out of our garden, the State Fair is coming up, the days are still warm but the sun sets sooner and makes for nice cool evenings. So, I’m glad it’s here, but I sure am not ready to let go of summer quite yet, so I hope it doesn’t go too fast!
