Can't believe August is almost over!
Current book: The Kitchen House. I started this book last week and so far it is very, very good.
Current playlist: Coldplay, Zac Brown, Lady Antebellum, Chris Tomlin. Basically I'm all over the place.
Current color: Purple
Current drink: In July I got sucked back into drinking diet coke on a much-too-regular basis. I blame it on the proximity of Sonic to the pool and the fact that it was always happy hour at Sonic when we were headed home and I was always hot and in need of a cold drink. Now I'm trying to detox from caffeine again because I think it is why I've been sleeping so poorly the last few weeks.
Current food addiction: I'm trying to enjoy as much summer produce as I can before it's gone. I was sad the other day when Costco had downsized from 4lb to 2lb containers of strawberries. That means the end of summer is near. Sigh.
Current favorite favorite: I bought this magnet in Crested Butte. It makes me happy.
Current need: Some motivation in the kitchen. I am having the hardest time with meals lately. I'm still cooking but I'm just not enjoying it. I think I'm ready for soups and stews and a fall-ish menu.
Current triumph: In September we will have one of our two credit cards completely paid off. We've been debt free at two different times in our twenty-two years of marriage and it's a wonderful feeling. We're not currently debt-free, but we are moving that direction and we have operated on a cash-only basis for the last five-ish years. I never cease to be amazed at God's provision for us.
Current annoyance: The transition lenses on my glasses. I got that feature because it was completely covered under insurance but I despise how dark my glasses get when I'm in the sun and how long it takes them to go back to normal. Vain, much?
Current indulgence: Going to bed super early. Ahhhh...such a luxury for me.
Current blessing: A fulfilling marriage. It's a blessing I don't take for granted.
Current outfit: This rarely changes--capris, flip flops, short sleeved top. Lately though I've been able to wear some lightweight cardigans and jeans. I'm ready for more of that.
Current excitement: The Arkansas/Alabama game in Fayetteville in a few weeks. Go HOGS!
Current planning project: A menu for Bunco!
Current goof-up: I got completely ready and made an appetizer for a party on Saturday night that was actually on SUNDAY night. I'm so glad we called ahead of time to ask a silly question because the hostess corrected my error and saved us from actually driving to the party and showing up on the wrong night. What a goof up. John and I ended up going on a little impromptu date that night since we were dressed. The actual party last night was great. It was sad to say good-bye to sweet friends but we got to catch up with so many people we hadn't seen in a long time. It was a nice way to end the weekend.
Hope all you peeps have a great week.
PS: My kids totally make fun of me for saying peeps. Evidently it's not a cool word. Whatev.
