I think I say this every month, but I can’t believe that it’s already September! We had such an enjoyable summer traveling around New York state and the time just flew by! The kids just started school again and I am looking forward to all things Fall. I am joining Anne and her co-host Lowanda for the monthly Currently linkup. Here is what I am currently:
Celebrating – My birthday this month. As I’ve gotten older, birthdays aren’t a big deal to me anymore. Sometimes, I actually forget how old I am! But September 16, I will be turning another year older so there will be some celebrating going on around here.
Watching – For the first time this summer I started watching Bachelor in Paradise. Since I watched the most recent seasons of the Bachelor and the Bachelorette, I’m familiar with most of the cast. It’s been surprisingly enjoyable and a recent guilty pleasure. I just wish I didn’t have to commit four hours a week!
Welcoming – The kids had their first day of school yesterday. I’m going to miss the relaxed, care-free days of summer. However, I’m welcoming being back into a routine. I think it’s easier for the kids when they have a set bedtime and a regular morning wake-up time. Plus, with homework and after-school activities, they will be much busier and have less time to be on electronics or be “bored.”
Preparing – Is it too early to start preparing for next summer’s vacation?!! I’m not totally joking though. Next summer we’d like to do a tour of the National Parks out West. It will most likely be a two week trip and figuring out all the logistics will take lots of time and planning. So, I’m hoping to get started on the research and planning of this trip soon.
Photographing – Summer is over and I will be home now to cook dinner every night. I am going to restart my Monday weekly meal plan posts. So, this means I will be back to photographing dinner each night! LOL! While traveling this summer, I also started using and experimenting with the manual mode on my camera. I’m hoping to get out more while the kids are in school to continue practicing my photography skills.
