SOC Sunday


It’s that time of the month! I’ve missed doing these the last few months! So, I am CURRENTLY…..


x files

Sigh. Well…X-Files…I was…underwhelmed. And that’s from someone who is a diehard fan. Someone who can discuss with you all of the theories and all of the episodes and all of the little details. I wanted to believe. I wanted to enjoy. Maybe I’ll watch it again…and reevaluate….


 harry potter

Or Re-reading… The Harry Potter Series. Every few years, I decide to read the whole series again from beginning to end. I am about to introduce the first book to Pookah. I’ll be re-reading and he’ll be learning about the world of Harry Potter for the first time. I’m excited.



Podcasts. I keep trying to pick up this habit because you all have told me to! I’ve got a new list that folks have told me to listen to :

  • Hello Friend
  • The Nerdist,
  • For Colored Nerds, and
  • Another Round……

We’ll see. Any more suggestions?



Gluten free shrimp and penne pasta

I made this Gluten Free Shrimp and Penne Alfredo last week. It…was…so…good… I’ll have to post the recipe soon.



GOOD. Which to me, is amazing. This last month has been a hard one, with the death of my father and a few other challenges on top of that.  But like the song says: I can see clearly now the rain is gone….

Thank you for all of your support and prayers and cards. And if you sent me something, I WILL send you a thank you card! I am just so behind, but thank you truly. I’ve still got a while to go. But it does get if not easier, then more tolerable every day.



A beautiful mess color story app

A new App that I only downloaded this week called ColorStory by the ladies of a Beautiful Mess. They have the Beautiful Mess app which I am sure a lot of you know about and use, but the new app is a POWERHOUSE! It’s like all the photography apps you have ever thought of all rolled up into one. I am still playing with it and I’m soooo impressed so far. You’ll be seeing me tag the photos on my Instagram soon. And that’s huge. Because ya’ll know I love me some VSCOcam.



A new series that is coming to you NEXT WEEK! I get a lot of questions about shooting in manual mode. So starting next week, there will be a new series here on the blog all week long where you learn the why’s and hows behind shooting in manual. Shooting in Manual 101 starts Monday February 1st! So come on back


So that’s what’s Currently going on in my life! What’s going on in yours?

    I’m glad you are feeling better. Loss is always hard. The food looks awesome. My husband loves to cook, so l consider myself lucky to eat restaurant quality food on a daily basis. I will try and check out the podcasts, need to kick mine up a notch :-).

    I love your currently posts! You have had a heck of a month.

    You already know that if YOU recommend a photo app I don’t even hesitate to get it!!

    Well you already know how much I love the read and another round but since I’m podcast obsessed I’ll drop a few of my favorites which are black girl nerds, the brilliant idiots (which is sometimes hard to take but it gives you an insight to how men REALLY think!) combat Jack because he’s an amazing interviewer, and so much more. I can go on for days. It’s what gets me through my work day.

    I’m trying to get into podcasts. Key word is TRYING. I find them good in the car but in the house it’s hard.

    It does get more bearable over time. I can’t wait for your series. I need some inspiration badly. I think life either slowing down or I have a better grip on things that I can add photography back in. I’m excited!

    I love the ABM app so I will have to give ColorStory a try. Your currently post are always the best. The Alfredo looks delicious. I love all of those podcasts as well as Last Name Basis and I’m so disappointed Serial is now bi-weekly.

    So glad you’re feeling better! This 365 has me in manual mode everyday so it would be good to get some more tips! Since Serial I’ve only really listened to photography podcasts, TWIP Family and Thoughts on Photography. I’ll listen to the ones you posted though.

    That shrimp alfredo looks AMAZING! I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of your father. I lost my dad in 2011, so I can definitely relate to trying to put your life back together after loss.

    I can’t wait to catch up with the X-files, I was excited when I found out they were bringing it back.

    Aw, sis I’m sorry to hear about your Father. I’ve been there and it does get better. Be encouraged. On a side note, I really like these posts and I may have to do something like this myself.

    I like what you’re making!

    I’m trying to stay away from pasta, rice, and bread for the next couple of months. It’s almost travel season again and I don’t want to be huffing and puffing across the globe.

    I think you mentioned The Read in a previous “Currently” that’s how I found out about it. I also like Another Round. I’ve added Death, Sex and Money, Snap Judgement, Stuff You Should Know and Criminal to my list. Of course Serial and This American Life are my constants. I’m starting to feel like they are tv shows I’m trying to keep up with, but I’m going to try out a few of the ones you mentioned here. Like Nelly, podcast get me through my workday. I have turn the volume down on The Read ’cause language!

    OMG! So we are not new bff’s because I reread Harry Potter every so often too! I was actually just at the Celebration of Harry Potter weekend at Universal Orlando and some of the actors were there as well as Mina Lima, the graphic designers that designed all of the cool elements we see. Just curious, have you taken the new re-sorting quiz on Pottermore? I love reading about the information JKR shares on the site.
