Seems like now is as good a time as any to do one of these…
Eating: Tonight hot dogs and s’mores! On my menu this week: chili, BBQ chicken, and anything Fall related.
Watching: N and I watch Project Runway together on the weekends while folding laundry. It’s one of the few reality contest type shows he can handle. We always find ourselves in an interesting discussion over who should stay and who should go. We don’t always agree with the judges, or each other.
Patiently waiting for Fixer Upper to return…
Listening: Pandora, shuffled, is a favorite while I’m working and I’m still heavily into my podcasts. This American Life and Radiolab top the list but I will try anything in the top charts once.
Reading: Dead Wake I found it a bit dry in the beginning at times, but it builds to a very suspenseful near-end followed by a very haunting end. Next in my queue is Station Eleven. A “new” Kindle acquirement has opened up even more book possibilities.
Working on: Well I have intentionally let SMM slow down to a crawl. I’m taking on about 1-2 custom orders a week which allows me plenty of flexibility with my time. Burning the candle at both ends burnt me out for a while but I am managing my time better with more of it to spare. I also hope to channel this free time into more writing…
Writing should be less stressful as I plan to tackle a computer organization/overhaul in the next few weeks. I finally found an external hard drive that should work for my Mac and I hope to transfer over all of our old pictures onto it. The new iCloud plans have also come at the perfect time and I’ve been playing around with how to virtually store pictures on there. You may have notice that my posts have been a little picture-lacking this year, well hopefully this change will help that moving forward.
Looking forward to: September is always a full month. Last weekend was spent in Nashville with my sister and cousin for a much needed girls weekend. Tomorrow is the big baby consignment sale followed by MOMcon this weekend. I also have an upcoming Salt Lake City trip planned, a visit from Granny to look forward to, the startup of MOPS and Bible study, N’s birthday, and the seasonal fall activities all in the near future. It’s no wonder that winter always feels like a letdown!
