Currently in May
Time for my favorite link up of the month – Currently with Anne of In Residence and her co-host this month Nancy of NY Foodie Family. Currently I’m in a bit of a daze as it’s my last day of work before vacation and we have SO MUCH TO DO at home yet, but there are a few other current happenings besides my madhouse, so here they are!
Currently I Am:
Baking – Nada. Zip. Zilch. My oven has really not been used in several months for baking. And why would I want to bake when I can just keep eating my favorite raw cookie dough out of the jar? That’s the best part of baking anyway right? I do hope to get back to some baking soon, but then again with summer coming, I’m guessing my baking may be on hold until fall.
Listening to – I was listening to local station the Current at work the other day as I often do (no commericals and great variety) and they had a live in studio session with a group called Hurray for the Riff Raff. I really loved their vibe and want to check out more of their music. It’s kind of acoustic and lovely.
Loving – My Fidget Box. Maybe you’ve seen or heard of these, they’re being used with kids who have ADD or trouble sitting still. Or they’re great for people like me who use their nervous energy to do things like pick at the skin around their fingers (yep, it’s gross. I’m Beth. I’m disgusting.) Anyway, Nate found this for me at one of our local hobby shops so I’ve been fiddling with it when we watch TV at night and it’s keeping me from going after my fingers, so I think it’s a good thing!
Planting – Our tomatoes have already taken off thanks to our indoor basement greenhouse. They’ll be ready to head outside as soon as we get back from our trip I think. We’re also planting carrots, radishes, peppers and onions this year. We opted out of our CSA, so we’re doing our best to get some of our veggies from our own backyard this year and will supplement with the Farmer’s Market as needed.
Remembering – It’s been seven years this month since my sweet grandmother passed away. I’m thankful that between us, Nate and I still have one living grandparent, his Grandma Lil, whom we’ll get to see in Missouri this weekend. But I still miss my grandma and think of her all the time. She would have absolutely adored Ollie. I’m pretty sure she’s smiling down on us all the time though!
And there you go! It’s a little bit of a busy month, after our travels we have Mother’s Day to celebrate and our anniversary at the end of the month. But spring is springing and it is also one of my favorite months of the year, so I intend to enjoy every moment, even the busy ones!
