October Currents

Two blog posts in two days...wow...you'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.

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.

Love
Jen
