Currently – 10/4/23

Happy Wednesday! It’s the first Wednesday of the month and I am linking up with Jennifer to share five things I am currently doing. Each month we share five different things and I think it’s a fun way to think about what’s going on.

I am loving…

This second summer!! The weather this week has been wonderful – warm and sunny!! I am loving the extra time to wear my favorite summer clothes! It looks like the rest of the week will be warm and starting Saturday we have a high in the 60s.

I am excited about…

October weekends! We have some good stuff planned this month and I am excited for it. Jack and Luke have fun sports stuff this weekend. Next weekend, Luke and I are going to JMU. After that is Homecoming for Jack. I think we have a blank square on Saturday of the last weekend in October to recover from all that fun!

I am watching…

Our neighbors start decorating for Halloween. Our neighborhood goes all out for Halloween and I love all the lights and decorations.

We are also watching a lot of October baseball! The boys and Jeff are Braves fans and I cheer for them, too. The Orioles are also doing really well so baseball is exciting around here!

Tonight I am watching the Friends and Fiction authors live! I can’t wait to see those four fantastic authors!!

I am seeing…

Just how busy the rest of this month will be. Those fun weekends above mean I need to be on my A game during the week. We are going to have late nights for practices, two games a week for Jack, and a few work events for Jeff. I am going to try to shift my meal planning and grocery pickup to Tuesday and Wednesday. I usually do it on the weekend, but that is not going to work in October!

I am observing…

Just how out of running shape I am. I am choosing to look at it positively and celebrate any growth in endurance, speed, and soreness. I am also observing how great I feel after each run! Those endorphins are so real!

What are you currently doing? I will be back on Friday with my favorites from the week. Have a great day full of sunshine and books!

    Haha! Second summer! I had a second summer day yesterday with full sun and 86 degrees. My friend and I bought a day pass for a boutique hotel pool for only $15 and had a wonderful day on our fall break!

    Yes! It really did feel like summer today! It was great breaking out the short sleeves, flip flops, and capri pants. I loved it.

    Our weather seems to be up and down in the Pacific Northwest, it can be chilly in the mornings but beautifully sunny in the afternoons. I love your necklace!

    Do you live near Atlanta? I’m curious, since your family loves the Braves. I feel like there’s always a story about why people love certain teams. My best friend loves them too! She just told me they had to go home and think about it since they lost last night. 🤣 I’m so glad you got to wear your beloved summer clothes again! I am wishing for more fall and I am finally living the dream wearing my cooler weather clothes! Thanks for joining in for Currently!

      We don’t live in Atlanta. We are in Maryland. My husband has been a Falcons fan since his aunt sent him a T-shirt when the Colts left Baltimore in the early 80s. He also cheers for the other Atlanta teams. My boys have become Braves fans over the past 5 years and we’ve seen them play quite a bit when they are in town here (Orioles or Nationals) and in Atlanta since my sister lives there now.
      I agree with your friend! They did need to go home and get their acts together. Thank goodness they figured it out tonight!
