Time for Currently! with Anne In Residence-
Birthday season just wrapped up in our home. We celebrated our son’s fifth birthday and daughter’s tenth birthdays a week apart. Now it is time to deck the halls with pumpkins, leaves, and the smell of cinnamon everywhere, right?
Fall means television show season premiers. I remember when new shows would pop up the week after Labor Day but it seems now the networks are waiting until fall really hits. Our favorite shows: This Is Us, The Goldbergs, American Housewife, The Middle, Speechless are set to return the 26th and 27th of this month and I have my blanket and coffee er wine ready to go! Add this to my watching list: This fall I’m planning on taking time to really take in the change in foliage in our mountains. North Carolina is known for it’s amazing autumnal colors and since I’m just an hour away from it all I should take advantage of it. I enjoy watching the trees change on my daily drive to work – everything goes from so lush and green to a rainbow of rich tones. I love to see those colors and am always saddened when the trees are bare. #winterisnotmyfriend
Since the seasons are changing things around here are too. My husband recently accepted a second job and though we may not be welcoming it (per say) we are welcoming whatever relief it can bring during this hectic (financially speaking) time of year. We’re also super happy to welcome football season back! Ahhh nothing better than a good Thursday, Sunday, or Monday night game! Go Pats!
Preparations are being made for our Pumpkin Palooza party in October. We’re also starting to get ready to bring out the fall decor around the house. It won’t be too long before we’ll be making our closets ready for a few more cooler temperature clothes (all packed away.) Oh and another yard sale is in the works. My mom is moving next week so we’re also going to spend this coming Saturday getting her ready to leave the house I considered home behind. That is bittersweet. And finally – time to prep the flower beds and flower pots for lots and lots of mums and violas!
So I’m not a photographer by any means. I own an iPhone which serves as my camera and I also own a new take on the old school Polaroid. But one thing I hope to do is take more photos this month of our kids, home, and whatever we get into on the daily. I always am the one to forget to pull up the camera app. Maybe this month I can be more intentional on photos! And heck even print them!
Reading, reading, reading. (With Heather and the gang!)
Last month I read a Danielle Steel novel. I have never in my life read any of the mother-of-chick-lit’s books before. This one was offered up to me by one of my clients and I ended up borrowing three of the DS novels.
I read Betrayal and it was good! I knew what was going to happen but I enjoyed the book.
I have a feeling that I will not care too much for her books after I read the next two I have – Country and Prodigal Son. I’m just really expecting her books to be like Nicholas Sparks’ and be very redundant but who knows!
Have you read Danielle Steel? Are you a fan? Have you read any of the ones mentioned?
