Currently in October

 It's the first Wednesday of the month and time for Currently with Jennifer.  This month we're looking at what we're currently loving, excited about, watching, dreaming, & observing. 

loving-- We've found quite a few new hiking trails in the last month and I am loving having all these new places to explore.




excited about-- Next week Evan, my mom, and I are leaving for a trip to North Carolina to see my sisters and their families!           

watching-- We are currently watching the latest season of Only Murders in the Building & Billions.  I'm still making my way through Blue Bloods and started watching The Exes. 


dreaming
 -- I've been dreaming of baking up all sorts of treats-- blueberry muffins or boy bait, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, apple pies, etc... but our oven has been broken and I can't.  Though it's not easy to remember and I have even gone so far as to pull out all the ingredients before remembering I can't use it. 

Muffins like these:


Blueberry Boy Bait


apple pie



observing-- The leaves that are just starting to change colors!

  1. Leaves are starting to change here, too- so pretty! I hope your oven gets fixed soon. While there is never a good time for a major appliance to go out, prime baking seasons have to be among the worst times. It sounds like you have some treats planned for when you get it back. I have never heard of boy bait- I will check it out!

  2. This must be such a great time of year for your hikes especially with less humidity and leaves starting to change!

    1. It really is such a beautiful time of year for hiking; though a bit wet and muddy this year we're making the best of it on these sunny days!

  3. I'm hoping the leaves change color here. Sometimes they all turn brown and fall without ever getting nice!

    1. Yes, some years they do have a tendency to do that and I think that's caused by dryness (though I'm not 100% on that); we've had a pretty rainy season so it SHOULD be a colorful year.

  6. I totally forgot it's Currently today, will have to catch up tomorrow. Sorry about your oven, I just baked pumpkin bread for the first time in ages yesterday. The photo of the lake with the single branch with orange foliage is beautiful. Your North Carolina trip sounds fun!

    1. Oh yum, I love pumpkin bread; though oddly I've never made it myself. I think that needs to change this year.

  7. I know your area is beautiful in the fall with the leaves changing colors. I do hope you get your oven fixed so that you can bake again. I like those sweets you like to bake. Julie’s Creative Lifestyle

  8. I'm surprised you're discovering new hiking spots with all the hiking you and your family do! My baking supplies are low, and I keep forgetting to order more. Hope your oven is fixed soon.

    1. Me too! I always think we must have exhausted every place possible until someone mentions a new one.

  11. You live in such a beautiful area, Joanne! I wish I could go hiking with you. All those foods look so enticing. I love Blue Bloods and I just heard about the Murder one yesterday at the hairdresser. Happy October!

    1. Aw, thank you! Only Murders is in their 3rd season so you have lots of watch if you like it.

  13. Those baked goodies look incredible! I've never heard of boy bait before. It looks like blueberry cake? The trails and water view are all beautiful! Thanks for sharing, my friend!

    1. Boy bait is like a blueberry coffee cake but it is baked in a 13x9 pan so it makes more than the usual coffee cake recipe. Thanks for hosting!

  14. I loved Only Murders in the Building this season Joanne. I love all of the things you and your kids bake. The Boy Bait looks so good and I bet tastes delicious. I love the fall in your area where you live. It just beautiful looking at the leaves change colors. I hope you have a nice week.

  15. Beautiful fall photos!! I've really liked the episodes of Only Murders in the Building that I've watched but I've missed so many. I used to love Blue Bloods too, but haven't watched in ages. Visiting from Currently#19

    1. Thank you! I just started watching Blue Bloods this year so I'm only on season 7 or 8, I think. I had no idea it was still on TV until just last week!
