I woke with a start and flash on this past Monday morning. Lying in bed, I thought instantly for some reason that I needed to write a new “Currently” post to update here on a more personal level.
See after a conversation with a mutual blogger friend about continuing personal blogging, I felt I needed to write for just me more or less. Plus, another blogger friend had mentioned in past about writing Currently posts more often. Ironically, I opened my BlogLovin app to see she did indeed write a currently post that very morning. Also, making it a linkup of sorts.
I knew it was a sign.
I took the challenge and here is what flowed out of me for the most recent “Currently” post for January 2017…
I had some downtime with a snowstorm this past weekend and had just finished my recent book that I was reading. I was also awaiting a delivery from BOTM with my January selections, which I ended up picking two as I had two free book credits. I used one of them this month.
But my box didn’t arrive until Monday, thus I borrowed from OverDrive, Looking for Alaska, by John Green, as this one has been on my list for some time. Being that it was available and free to read, I thought I’d give it a go. Will keep you posted on this one.
Plus, I was happily surprised to an extra book included in my BOTM with BOTM with my January selections.
So much happy reading for me now!
Being that many of the shows, I have been watching were on a bit of a hiatus for the holiday season. my TV viewing was at an all-time low.
But last week, the new Season of Nashville premiered on CMT for the first time. I was able to view the first hour preview On-Demand before the actual premiere. Then I viewed the second half on the actual premiere time. Happy for its return, but not sure what to expect just yet with its new location (CMT not ABC) and trimmed down cast so far. The jury is still out, but still viewing with high hopes.
Gearing up for the Nashville debut on CMT, I couldn’t help, but listen to their past year’s soundtracks on iMusic, because one of the big reasons, I viewed was for the music. See Nashville’s Past Season’s Soundtracks really nail it with the vocals and definitely worthy to listen to while work during the day in all honesty.
Sweets and more seem to be topping my eating right now. See I have still somehow leftover Christmas Cookies (I made a ton for us apparently). So, I cookie for dessert goes along way. Yes, they are Christmas colors, but still so yummy!
And now that I tried out this new recipe for my blog, it seems to be a new favorite here with Peanut Butter and Jelly Chocolate Pudding Trifles.
Still addicted to Stitch Fix having got two fixes in December alone.
Plus, I am also possibly equally addicted to Lularoe leggings as I have been purchasing through a friend, family member’s sister and even some online Facebook groups.
Not even sure, which are my favorites now. Might be the Disney Princess Crowns as the Disney lover in me can’t resist.
Or maybe the camera leggings (I have two, one in blue and one in red now) as you will read on in the next section for what I have been working on.
Christmas came and went. But my husband and kids gifted me with a new DSLR camera to replace my old one with the Canon EOS Rebel T5i. Plus, they added a new speed light for good measure.
I am having so much fun playing with my photography skills and with my newest obsessions. I also invested in a newer and better tripod. So, I really am pleased with the photos I am able to take in recent times. Can’t wait to try to it out more in the upcoming weeks and months here, too.
Honestly, it was 14 degrees here with a real feel of single digits today. So, right now, I am dreaming of warmer temperatures.
But I also was reminded today that I can begin to start booking dining for our annual Disney family vacation.
So, the excitement is building folks and you can bet I will share those adventures as they unfold here with you as I have always done in the past, as well.
OK, so I have been toying with this one for a few months and not sure if I will or not. But since I have been creating printable sheets for blog posts and for signups on my sites, I was toying with the notions of opening an Etsy Shop with printable creations in mind.
Don’t quote me though on this as I am still designing websites, writing sponsored posts for companies and blogging here personally, as well. So, not sure if I would be crazy to add that on to my already crazy schedule, but just something I have been thinking about I guess.
That’s it folks! Now, I am linking up with Lisa at Golden Spoons. Plus, I am indeed wishing for Spring sooner rather than later on this chilly, January day.
