Today I am linking up with Jennifer for her monthly "Currently" post.
The topics today are: What I'm currently
Loving - Resolving - Organizing - Anticipating - Eating
So let's get to it!
Even though you've seen this book here before, it's
still what I'm loving right now.
Though I don't agree with some of her views,
this book is inspiring me to care of my home,
think about my spending, the yard care, food and other things
that I need motivation with, at times.
This week I'm working on organizing my office.
As I stated in a previous post, I always use the beginning of the new year
to make new folders and notebooks.
Yesterday I found these matching notebooks at Target
and will be using them for my Budget/Bill binder
and the other one for...haven't decided yet. 😀
But I love that they were matching! So I bought both of them.
We will eat this for breakfast,
then again if we need a quick bite of something.
Last night I fixed a salad and soup to go along with the bread
and it was the perfect meal.
For the last two categories,
I have no pictures,
but I am
to take my makeup off every night before I go to bed.
Believe it or not, I have to force myself to do this!
I've gone all my life without taking my makeup off at night,
but now that I'm getting older,
I really want to start treating my skin better.
I've had really good skin so far, but
age can sneak up and surprise you, can't it?
And lastly, what I'm
I am anticipating redecorating my living room.
I'm currently looking at cottages on Pinterest
and trying to put together a look that is more the style
I'm looking for in this small house.
The furniture we currently have is what we bought
when we were living in a huge space and needed bigger furniture
to fill it up.
So I am anticipating all the factors that have to line up,
in order to make this change happen:
money, the right timing, choosing comfy stuff, yet the
style I'm trying to create.
This isn't a necessary situation,
but it's one that will change how I feel about
having such a small space.
And that's it for what I'm doing
Thanks for stopping by today!
Until Next Time...
Oh boy - I so need to join you with your resolution. I have never been one for taking off my makeup at night. I know "everyone" says it is so much better/healthier for you but I'm not 100 percent convinced....but convinced enough to think (often) as I crawl into bed, "hmm, I really should go take my makeup off." And, then I don't. HA That may or may not say a lot about my resolutions!!ReplyDelete
Jennifer, I'm the same way! The problem is that I wait until I'm way too tired and then don't feel like doing it. So the past few days I've been doing it much earlier and so far have made it 3 1/2 days :)Delete
I'm so bad about taking off make up too at night. I even use some face wipes - which make my face feel AWFUL - I use them with the hopes I'll just actually clean my face... but nope, I'm lucky if I do the face wipes HAHAReplyDelete
Rebecca, I use those too and hate the way my face feels, which is when I end up washing it. Give it another try!Delete
I don't even wear makeup so don't have to take it off. :) I stopped wearing makeup during Covid when we couldn't go out and just never started wearing it again.ReplyDelete
Karen, that's the way to go :) Free and easy!Delete
I just GASPED that you don't remove your makeup! 🤣 I can hear my mom saying in my head, "You can't coverup bad skin, Jennifer Mellyn, don't you dare go to bed with your makeup on!" 😜 That book sounds really inspiring, even if you don't agree with all her views. I love inspirational books and have an author that I love who writes similar type books- Fiona Ferris? She writes the books about how to "chic" at Christmas, or at home, or in the way you dress. I love her and can fly through one of her books! She lives in New Zealand. I can't wait to hear about your home decorating results! It's fun to dream up new things for the areas in our homes. I recently did that and had such a great time giving our bedroom and bathroom a refresh.ReplyDelete
Thanks for linking up today, friend!
I know! My DIL's were shocked too when I told them. My mom never takes hers off either and she's almost 80 years old!Delete
And yes, I know Fiona! I've collected many of her books over the years and even did her writing course a few years ago. She is very inspirational.
Your sausage bread looks good, I think I'll try it!ReplyDelete
Oh good! I hope you like it :)Delete
When I was younger I used to wash my face with normal soap and my mum was always horrified. Now I'm older I understand why😂. I love your matching notebooks I'm sure both of them will come in very handy.ReplyDelete
Ruth, I still find that Ivory soap gets my face the cleanest :)Delete
I've never been a makeup lover and one of the reasons is the fact that you should wash your face well every night if you wear it! Too much work. Also, I would have bought both those notebooks too -- they're so cute and I love office supplies.ReplyDelete
