It’s been a while since I’ve done a “Currently” meme. Something to think about for the month of June:
CURRENTLY. . . .
Reading: Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, Sara Donati’s Into the Wilderness series, and Jodi Taylor’s The Chronicles of St. Mary’s series
Planning: for retirement; a summer-long photography project, and a pizza date with a dear friend
Watching: Outlander season 1; Knightfall season 2, and Braves baseball
Cooking: as little as possible
Eating: more fruits and vegetables
Drinking: San Pelegrino flavored sparkling water
Crafting: cards, knitting an afghan
Going: to Scrap Camp in September
Loving: not having to answer to the alarm clock!
Feeling: excited about a new chapter in my life
Listening: to the Outlander soundtrack, classical music, classic rock
Celebrating: 35 years of marriage and 30 years of mother- and fatherhood with my husband and two sons.
I’ve been using my Chromebook more and more for simple computer tasks–reading emails, checking in with Facebook, surfing the Internet, and the like. My one complaint is that I do not want to use it for photos. I might run out of space! I still have my big laptop for that–along with the Adobe Creative Cloud applications for photo editing and organizing. Hopefully, in the next few days, I’ll have some photos to share as I get started with my next project. I have a couple of ideas: Sarah Huizenga posted on her blog about the summer scavenger hunt she’s doing–28 photos of things where she lives between June 2 and September 2. I think I can do that! I want to do a project about old houses–those grand old Southern “dames,” so many of whom are falling into disrepair. I’ve passed one every day on the way to work. It’s for sale (the second realtor is working on it how), and it’s in need of restoration. If only I had a million dollars to spend on it. Prosperity could use a good bed-and-breakfast! (By the way, I have NO business sense whatsoever!) And there is Kim Manley Ort’s class, Place. These three ideas should keep me busy and inspired. (If only the heat would break. nearly 100 degrees at the end of May, early June? This is August weather, not May weather!)
So, these are the things that I’m currently thinking about and planning for the month of June. What about you? What are your current occupations and thoughts and plans?
