Currently May 2016


It is the first week of May and it is once again time for Anne and Jenna’s monthly currently linkup.

Celebrating – We just celebrated my son’s first Holy Communion this past weekend.  We lucked out with beautiful weather and enjoyed having a small family celebration after.  This upcoming weekend we will be celebrating my mom and brother’s birthday, as well as Mother’s Day!

Reading – I just finished Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben.  His books are always suspenseful reads.  I just started The Expatriates by Janice Y.K. Lee about three different women who are living in Hong Kong.  It’s too early for me to make any real opinions of the book.

Pondering – I’m not really pondering much at the moment, which I guess is a good thing.  I do find it crazy that I have been seeing my eye doctor for a case of severe dry eyes.  She has me on a regimen of various eye drops, including  a prescription one, using a heated eye mask twice a day, taking fish oil twice a day and upping my water intake, but my dry eyes have seemed to have gotten worse!  What the heck?!  How is this even possible?!!!

Sipping – I am not a big drinker, but when I do want something alcoholic, my first choice is always a hard cider.  I bought a variety pack of Angry Orchard ciders and have been enjoying them with dinner every now and then.  Otherwise, I NEED my morning cup of coffee.  I’ve gotten back into having a nightly mug of tea as well.

Going – Tonight we are going to the Spelling Bee finals, where my daughter is one of the six finalists.  Last year, she came in second place, so we will see how she does this year.  And even though it’s not until the end of the month, my husband and I decided that we are going to head to Rhode Island over the Memorial Day weekend.



  1. Hey that is awesome about your daughter!! Good luck to her at the finals! I’ve never read anything by Harlan Coben but I know a lot of people who really like his stuff so maybe I should check it out!

  2. We celebrated baptism over the weekend – so great to have those special milestones and be able to celebrate them with family. Thanks for linking up again!
