It’s November!!! How did that creep up on us so fast?? I swear it was just October 1st. And now that we’re past Halloween I know that the days are going to be on overdrive as we get into the holiday season. I’m so glad to start the first day of the month with a Currently post so we can slow down and take stock of things for a moment! Here are some current happenings based on prompts from Anne of In Residence and her co-host this month, Julie of A Hopeful Hood.
~Currently I Am~
Realizing – I need to make more time for myself and stop trying to do all the things. I can do many of the things, but it’s ok to not do all the things. This may be a big part of my word and goals for 2018. Yes I’m already looking ahead to that.
Stirring – Pretty much just my coffee! Copious amounts of it on these darker colder days.
Investigating – Bathroom options. Our bathtub decided to spew tiles off the wall at us the other day, so we’re working on how we want to fix it. We did a quick fix so we can still shower, but I think we’re going to be saving for a full out replacement this spring. Ollie loved looking at all the bathtubs and showers at Menards the other day!
Appreciating – My husband and all he does. He works hard, he keeps us fed, he figures out our finances, he doesn’t complain if I need a girls night and happily hangs out with Ollie. He’s just the best.
Following – I’m following along with Shea of Shea Lennon and Alexandra of Simply Alexandra and their Live Your Best (Holiday) Life For Less challenge. It’s a great daily challenge as we head into this very busy season to slow down and appreciate it – and do it in an affordable way. Today is day one and I love the idea of doing a daily or weekly gratitude log, so I will be doing that!
And just like that we’re off and running into the month. It is really my favorite time of year though, even with all the craziness, I just love it so much. Be sure to check out Anne and Julie’s blogs for other currently posts or to add your own!
