Currently... August 2021

 It's the first Wednesday of the Month and time to link up with Anne for her currently series. This month we're talking about what we are currently admiring, anticipating, enjoying, spending, and saving. 


admiring-- My new basement! I just can not stop wandering down there during the day to look it over and plan where I want furniture, what curtains I want, etc.  It's so exciting to have his room so near completion after nearly 18 years. 


anticipating--
What this school year is going to be like; between Alec's school and all the regulations/changes that may pop up and Ian trying his first college class and Evan taking on harder classes in our homeschool, I think we're all in for quite a year. 

enjoying-- SO many yummy new recipes and delicious foods. July was a wonderful month of eating and yet I still managed to creep closer to my Weight Watcher goal.






 

spending-- Spending lots of time with family and friends this summer.  We have been seeing ALL the people.







saving-- All sorts of basement decorating ideas to my Pinterest boards as well as some yummy recipes and outfit ideas too.

    1. It's been so long since I've had a blank slate to start with that I'm almost feeling overwhelmed by it! I can't wait to watch it all come together though.

    1. I try to balance my eating and focus a lot more on exercise and movement all summer long; it's not always easy but I do try to focus on just little baby steps... like eating just one slice of cake instead of one slice of cake each day. LOL

  13. Ooh, your basement looks so good - what an exciting blank slate to work with. I'm jealous, as ours really is just not finishable, with super low ceilings and all the wiring quirks of a 130-year-old house. And that ice cream cone is bringing on a craving...
