Currently, Vol 9



This is what I am up to “currently”


Watching – Fireworks – We haven’t seen the “good ones” yet; Those happen this coming Saturday night. But we’ve gone to a couple of nearby towns to watch some smaller shows. Our hometown, Orrville, has some of the best fireworks in the state of Ohio. They had a parade yesterday and a carnival all week ending with the fireworks on Saturday. The ones we’ve seen were pretty enough but it’s Orrville’s that I’m really looking forward to.


Reading – Not much of anything last week- This past week I’ve really been slacking in the reading department. It was a bit of a busy week between family get-togethers, swimming with the kiddos, and other various summer activities I haven’t really found the time. OK, let’s be fair, I could easily find the time. I just haven’t. I’m determined to get some kind of reading done this week though


Celebrating – weight loss – If you’ve read my other recent posts you’ll have seen that my husband and I have been doing a slow-carb diet. We started 4 weeks ago and as of this past Friday I am down 10lbs. I still have a long way to go but it’s off to a good start.


What are you “currently” up to this week? Let me know in the comments below

    Congrats on your weight loss! I am also slacking on reading right now. You are inspiring me to make time to read again!

    Congrats on the weight loss – and your town has a lot of Fireworks! We only have one show for the 4th. It’s busy, so don’t beat yourself up over the reading. I’m currently reading Sherlock Holmes and my next adventure will be Treasure Island. I am a sucker for the classics. I’ve been sick lately, though, so I’ve also fallen behind.

      My town only does 1 show but surrounding towns in the County also have them(which is where we had gone so far)
      Oh Sherlock Holmes. I need to put that on my reading list. I’ve read a little bit of Sherlock Holmes before and really enjoyed it. I hope you get to feeling better soon
