October Currents

Two blog posts in two'd think I just finished up a big project and found some extra time or something. Grin.

Current Books: I haven't been doing much reading lately, but I did love this book

Current Playlist: John brought David Crowder's Christmas album home the other day so I've been listening to it and it's really good. And after the Chris Tomlin concert I went to last week, he's getting a lot of play time too. 

Current Color: dark gray

Current Drink: Good Earth sweet and spicy tea (the caffeine free one) and Zevia caffeine-free cola. And of course WATER.

Current Food: Sweet potatoes. And green chilies. But not sweet potatoes and green chilies together.

Current Favorite Favorite: Gray nail polish. Ooh-la-la. And a cute brown knit hat that my friend, Terri, gave me.

Current Wishlist: A new fleece pullover.

Current Needs: Absolutely nothing!

Current Triumph: I had to buy new dress pants for our banquet the other night because all my others were too big! I bought a pair THREE sizes smaller than the ones hanging in my closet! That felt good. And one more triumph? I finished the girls' Halloween costumes last weekend. Glad to have that checked off of of my list. Pictures soon...

Current Bane of my Existence: Laundry. If it would only stop multiplying. Sigh.

Current Indulgence: Napping!

Current Mood: Happy and relaxed!

Current Blessing: My "snow day" yesterday. Oh, and another blessing? I forgot to tell y'all that the issue with my car last week WAS the battery after all so it was a quick and fairly inexpensive fix.

Current Outfit: Jeans, sweater, clogs, and SmartWool socks (of course)! It's cold here today!

Current Excitement: Well, it's Thursday which means it's almost the weekend! Which means it's almost time for football! 

Current Link: This post has some amazing candy corn ideas. And I sorta want to try this white-chocolate and candy corn popcorn. I don't have a candy corn addiction. I don't have a candy corn addiction. I don't have a candy corn addiction. I'm hoping candy corn disappears from grocery stores soon because it's getting harder and harder to keep passing it by.

The laundry. Ohhhhh the laundry! I feel like I'm doing WAY more lately than ever. I think it's our crazy, beloved Colorado weather. "I'm cold - I'm hot - I'm cold again--" all in one day, and somehow my kids think that merits a new outfit each time. Plus now we're doing school uniforms, so they change right after school. Ugh. I should buy stock in Tide.

A lot of our currents are the same: Loving gray lately. Sweet potatoes. Gray nail polish. Candy cornnnnnn!!!!

Miss ya, Mer!

I actually just made that candy corn bark for teacher gifts. I don't like white chocolate and thought it was pretty tasty. I bookmarked that blog post so I can try some of those recipes.

Well done on the pants, my friend! So very happy for you!!!

Hi Mer,

It has been a while since I have commented....missed you.

I LOVE David Crowder....just saw him in concert a few weeks ago. I will look into purchasing his Christmas CD.

Glad your van is fixed....and it wasn't too expensive.

Hope your weekend went well and you had some down time with your family.
