Hi! I hope the week is going well. I know even as we begin this month of August, school presents a lot of new challenges, whether our kids will have in person classes, virtual, homeschooling or new college routines. Even those not in that stage of life are close to someone who is. I hope we can all support one another as we face a new set of adjustments. I know I need the reminders to stay hopeful and be an encouragement to others.
Today, I am linking up Anne in Residence for the Currently series. Today's topics are:
Choosing, Consuming, Enjoying, Ordering, and Remembering
I am choosing to be thankful in the midst of the ups and downs of 2020. I don't always do this well, but I have been choosing thankfulness through the sudden changes this year. I am thankful for my unemployment which has allowed me to be home this summer to spend time with family. I have enjoyed being a housewife, grocery shopping during the week, being able to drive my daughter when she has needed to go somewhere (usually a church event), spending time with my parents, siblings, and greats.
I am consuming more fruits and vegetables and less sugar and processed foods. I did just the opposite the first few months of quarantine, but have tried to eat healthier over the summer months. 50 is approaching fast and I would like to be a little healthier.
I am enjoying time with family. I have enjoyed the time this summer with my family. We have had some fun together, yet I have also enjoyed the times when we have been under the same roof but still have done our separate things. I enjoyed the past 2 days being able to see my brother, sister-in-law and niece again. Next week, I will enjoy seeing all my in-laws.
I am ordering random things these days. Most of my orders seem to be random things for our bathroom remodels.....glass for a window, sink drain stoppers, ceiling fan, interior door locks, mirrors..all that exciting stuff :). After an unsuccessful trip to Target last week to complete my shopping list, I made an online order for Target for household/beauty goods that I was able to pick up at another store.
I am remembering when going back to school was so different last year. It was announced the public schools would all begin virtually here. My youngest daughter has only spent 2 years in public school (she was homeschooled until 9th grade). Doing school at home will be very similar to doing homeschool again!
Happy Wednesday friends!
