Currently My Life

Currently-October

Currently October 2016

 

Hey Guys! Happy October!  Let’s talk about what’s Currently going on in my life…….

 

WATCHING

 

I remember last season, when this show debuted, I thought to myself, now that sounds interesting…but the way my sleep life is set up,  the only day I stay up to watch TV is Thursday night. ( even then it’s sketchy).  SO I was watching the Today show a few weeks ago, and they were talking about how the show is coming back and what to expect and I said again…that sounds really really interesting. Well, since I started using Hulu more often, I watched the first episode and …I AM HOOKED! OMG! I loooove it. I have been binge watching during the day and on breaks and..whenever I have time.  I FINALLY finished the first season in a marathon session last night and I can’t wait to start the 2nd season. Check it out! By the way…I was skeptical about this Hulu subscription at first but the way my sleep life is set up, I’m asleep by 9, so…this is perfect for me to still keep up with my must see TV!

 

READING

I think we’ve established that I like a LOT of different books. Romance, self-help, fantasy, fiction, non-fiction…I like it all as long as it’s good.

I keep hearing about someone somewhere reading this book. I ignored it. FOR YEARS.  I saw it in Target the other day and finally got it. I put it aside for our vacation at the beach at the end of the month.  I’ll let you know what I think.

LISTENING

Listen. Solange DID THE DAMN THING! I’ve been a fan of hers since her first album, Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams.  This album is….I just don’t have the words. You can read reviews of it Here and here.   Then…….just download it. Seriously.

MAKING

It’s Fall!! So that means lots of soups and fall themed baked goods.  I’m working on a Creamy Tomato Bisque( perfect with grilled cheese on a Fall Saturday Afternoon!) , some Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon scones and I made this Gluten Free Apple Crisp yesterday.

Gluten Free Apple Crisp. SO good and perfect for fall

 

It was so good!!! And Yup..it’s gone.. LOL

FEELING

Better than I have in a while…health wise. Stressed a bit because..life loves to throw curve balls. BUT, I’ve been consciously trying to enjoy where I am RIGHT now in this stage of life. I don’t want to look back one day and realize that I didn’t enjoy my present because I was too busy worrying about or planning for the future.

 

LOVING

My Macbook Air! I finally got one early last month and I am in looooove! LOL. I’ve always always wanted a Macbook but always settled for something cheaper because well..life. But after my 5th windows based laptop in about the same number of years died, I was done. And when the opportunity came, I finally purchased my baby. I’m calling HIM, Big Daddy. Because it’s because of my Daddy that I got it. It seems my Daddy left behind a few surprises behind and I think of him every time I open up my laptop.

PLANNING

CDub and I are going here…without Pookah. I’ll be talking more about it in a few weeks, especially about how I am planning to travel WITHOUT our child for the first time in 7 years. Let me just say it is taking a lot of plotting and manipulation. But it’s happening. Plane tickets have been purchased and WE ARE READY. LOL. *twerks*

 

So that’s what’s been going on in my world! What’s currently happening in yours?

    Enjoy your trip without kids! My husband and I just got back from a vacation without our kids and it was wonderful and worth all the stress and planning.

    I loved the Alchemist, in fact its probably time I re-read it. I hear the Solange album is fire but I have not purchased it yet. I am such a fan of her personal style and activism though. Apple crisp is one of my favorite desserts for Fall. Love the name for your new Mac, I hope Big Daddy treats you well.

    It was great reading about what’s going on with you. Enjoy your adult only vacay.

    Been longing for a Macbook air for so long!! How are you finding the lightness of it? I’ve used the Pro and it’s sturdy and I always felt the Air may be easier for travel but not practical for use as my only machine. Would you agree or disagree?

      The air is PERFECT for travel. I love it. I have the 13 inch version and it’s perfect. Its thin and doesn’t weight down my bag. I can really slip it into any large tote bag that I own and not feel weighed down!
      I have a iMac so it’s not my primary computer,but it’s powerful enough to do what I need it to do while out and about and traveling

    October just might be my favorite month. So pleasant, a month of change indeed. I, too, am listening to and LOVING that new Solange album! So very authentic, BLACK and NECESSARY. “F.U.B.U.” is my favorite joint! On repeat!

    Yay no kids. Have a blast and be out! I have been watching movie after movie on my firestick so I haven’t even begun to watch shows I am just watching movies. That PC….I love it but yeah when my laptop crashes (which will be soon since I have had it for two years already) I will get a mack book because I am sick of my these computers failing me.

    Haha! I cracked up at the twerking :-). Loved the Alchemist. They started showing Blindspot here, just before my reruns of Buffy. I might give it a go. Bet you’re happy you got the Mac Air. I love my Apple devices and computers, and have not looked back in years!

    This fall air, I’m looking forward to making soups and chili!

    I hope one day I will get a Macbook Air. Right now, I’ll just take an iPad that’s not cracked lol.

    I LOVE Negril! It’s the first island I ever visited. I’ve been to Ochos Rios twice, and MoBay more than that, but Negril is still my fave!

    Girl, when I tell you the Alchemist wrecked me in EVERY possible (in a good way). Pablo messed me up! I also miss my Macbook desperately but I keep equating the cost of the laptop to another trip. I guess I know what my priorities are currently. lol

    I’m watching all the shows. Atlanta, Queen Sugar, HTGAWM, This Is Us. I’m loving it! I’m reading The Perfect Find. Trying to figure out if I want to get Luvvie’s book in print or eBook (or audiobook). And I’m alternating between Solange and Regina Spektor. Yay October!!!

    And good luck on your photo challenge!!!

      I LOOOOVED the Perfect Find! Like I need to go back and re-read it. I’m about 1/3 through Luvvie’s book, and it will probably travel with me too.

    I miss my Mac book, I need to buy another one! I haven’t had a good book in a while, it’s a great time to curl up with a nice book. Go ahead and have the time of your life kid free! I’m pretty sure you will miss them but try and have as much fun as you can.

    I love everything about this list. I read the alchemist last fall for a book club and I’ve been catching up on the first season of blind spot in my spare time. I need need need a new computer. Trying to wait for the new MacBooks to come out though.

    Thanks for sharing these. I hear everyone raving about Solonge’s album and I have yet to take a listen. I’ve seen the previews for Blindspot. Now that one, I need to set my DVR for.

    I just love, love, love the story behind your computer. <3

    We did our first vacay sans kids last November. It was amazing. It took lots of plotting too. Excited for you guys!

    So happy you are planning a travel trip to Jamaica that will be after Matthew. I hear so much with Haiti right now and the flood so praying for them. Also Solo album is really refreshing I have always loved her out of the box effortless creative spirit!

    I love when you talk about enjoying the beauty of the moment you’re in. We are always longing for something else but it’s important to enjoy the stage that we are currently in because there are no new stages promised to us.

    Seriously though, can we talk about A Seat at the Table? I’ve loved Solo since Sol-angel and the Hadley Street Dreams, but this album. This album. Man, it is EVERYTHING.
