Long time no “Currently” update here. See I meant to write an update of sorts since May. But June with end of school craziness, extra added job opportunities, July birthday and anniversary celebrations for our family, plus our annual Disney trip, found my time limited for a “Currently” share.
But being August, still technically summer vacation here and a bit on the lazier side right about now, I am finally able to give “Currently” its fair share due here.
So sit back and find out more about what is going on with us right now with Currently August 2017 edition…
So, I admit I have slowed up reading this past summer. I have no excuses. However, I just lost my mojo a bit the past month or so. But finally I am reading a bit more. So, here is a sampling of what I recently read:
Thanks to back to school offering this one to read an ARC free, I started reading about a young teenage girl, who is to start her own feminine revolution in her Texas high school. I put it down to first read the next book below. But when I did come back to it, I did quite enjoy it. I will promise to share more though on this in an upcoming book roundup review here.
My Quarterly subscription recently renewed and I got three new books to read. While I can’t seem to write poetry for anything, I absolutely love reading it. Always have. So this memoir written in poetry form about her childhood and what it was like to grow up as an African American girl growing up in the 1960s and 1970s, caught my attention. Honestly, I put down Moxie for this one and devoured it.
Both books though have an underlying theme of hope, inspiration and of good triumphing all. Which right about now, I think we could all use a bit more of.
With regular TV network season on hiatus for summer, been watching less newer TV as there isn’t anything new to really view other than CNN and MSNBC. But have been binge watching older cult classic movies on cable, Netflix and Hulu, such as follows:
Dazed and Confused
Fast Times At Richmond High
Clerks (and much, much more)
Also been doing backyard movie nights with the likes of the Trolls Movie and Cinderella. But between weather not complying on the weekends, as well as my husband cutting his finger pretty badly putting away the screen one night, we have slowed on this. Hope to get a few more of these nights in this summer though.
Because it is summer and I am not wanting it to end, check a fun Spotify playlist I am currently jamming out to…
Sun Soaked Country Playlist on Spotify
Just because I can I am most definitely enjoying this Cannoli Cream recipe I shared here recently…
Plus, my girls cannot get enough of the Gummy Worms Popsicles I also posted up here, too…
But fresh back from vacationing at Disney, I am still tasting a few treats we had there this summer so far, too.
Such as at Epcot’s World Showcase in Italy at Via Napoli, there Artichoke Pizza, which was to die for.
Also, finally having stayed at the Disney Polynesian Resort, we enjoyed Dole Whip found exclusively at Pineapple Lanai there.
Dreaming & Planning…
Speaking of Disney World though, I am seriously missing and dreaming about it right now.
See I actually was missing it even before I left on the last day.
Because it is so very hard to return to reality after being on vacation for a week in the most magical place on Earth. Plus most know that I am a Disney lover from way back.
That said I am currently planning a late fall trip back to celebrate the holidays and my younger girl’s birthday there now. Because Disney, Christmas and Birthdays, who can resist that?!
Now though, still a few weeks left of summer though and trying not to think about back to school just yet. But I know that it is looming on the horizon for us. So, the immediate planning has Back to School written all over it in the short term for us.
