Sept. 24, 2015

The leaves are dropping, the temperatures are all over the place, and the days are getting shorter. Life has been going a mile a minute, but I've been doing my best to stay calm and take things as slowly as I can. Whenever life gets unpredictable, I cling to things I can predict. Things like dinner making and house cleaning. Those routines are stable and sure and I pretty much love them. 

I'm currently...

Eating: Mashed potatoes with everything, fruity pebbles, and I'm craving pumpkin all of a sudden now too. Don't worry though, I'm balancing it all out with salad.

Exploring: Life in a new church and poetry. Whenever we're at "The Queen's Cottage", we'll be going to one church and that place has been my favorite thing about this half-move thing we've got going on. I'm taking a poetry class again this fall and even though it's tough, I'm really enjoying the opportunity to steep myself in a type of writing that is really uncomfortable to me. (Just to clarify, I'm not writing poetry, just studying the work of other poets.)

Admiring: My brother. He graduated from police academy the Friday before last and it's been a real treat to watch him go through the process of achievement.

Collecting: Memories. I never know what fall will hold. This one held a half-move to a new city, teaching some online classes, joining my brother and sister as they take part in a different theatre, and a whirlwind trip to the south to surprise my brother for his graduation. 

What have you been up to? 

Link up with Jenna and Anne to share your list of currently if that's something you're into. 


  1. Haha, I'm cooking mashed potatoes with our supper. <3

    And how was your trip??

  2. I'm on a mashed potatoes kick, too!

  3. Congratulations to your brother!! For the record, I always love mashed potatoes! ;)

  4. Sounds like a wonderful fall for you!

  5. Fall is so good as a dependable time of the year to slow down. I've been grasping for familiarity and stability lately and flailing often, but trying to stay grounded. I sure could have used a slower autumn myself this year!

  6. Collecting memories. I love that! :)

  7. Mmmm! Mashed potatoes are so yummy! I always crave pumpkin around this time of year. I think it is really sweet that you are admiring your brother and collecting memories. When I read what you said, it made my heart happy. :)



I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
