Currently, Week Three!

I was itching to write, so I sneaked in this edition of “Currently” while riding in the car to the Indiana Convention Center to pick up my husband and daughter’s race packets.

This week, I’m Currently

Admiring: The Weather!!! It has finally been warm this week. I’ve been running outdoors, the flowers are blooming, and my family is all together. Life is good!

Caring: About pleasing everyone and getting everything done. Errands to run, people to see, and gotta get those plants in my garden!

Loving: Life, Family, God, and summer. I know, summer’s not really here. But it’s closer every day!

Another simple, delicious recipe!

Another simple, delicious recipe!

Cleaning: Now? Absolutely nothing besides dishes, laundry, and my body. My daughter is here until Monday, so I cleaned house prior to her arrival. I’m officially on a staycation!

Creating: Memories. And lots of yummy food! So far we’ve made Grandma Kathy’s Microwave Pickles, Trisha Yearwood’s Thai Salad, and Good Housekeeping’s One Sentence Recipe Asparagus Tart! And Saturday night we’ll be making Strawberry Cucumber Margaritas!

Today is the Indianapolis 500 Mini Marathon. We’ll be back in Indy bright and early and I’ll be cheering on my family from the sidelines. Praying for safety, health, and fast legs! See you all next week!

Eating: 1)Homemade pickles. If you want the recipe, it’s here on my site under “Kitchen”. Or you can scroll down a couple of posts, as it is also here on the home page. 2)Whole wheat, multigrain toast with either peanut butter or chocolate hazelnut spread. Protein and carbs to start my day. Especially on running days. 3)Also good for running day breakfasts are belvita biscuits. I find them in the cookie/cracker aisle. They aren’t really biscuits that we think of, but more of a crisp cookie-like wafer. Anyway, they also give me energy, and don’t upset my stomach when running. Which is a good thing.

imageDrinking: McDonald’s Berry Smoothies! My husband and I love to reward ourselves after a run with these icy cups of deliciousness. Coffee, of course. Any and all kinds of coffee! I drink various flavors of K-cups at home. My favorite right now is Folger’s Vanilla Biscotti. And when my friend and I go run, we always swing by Starbuck’s on our way home and get a Tall Iced Coffee, sweetened, with a splash of cream. Again, icy deliciousness! And they only cost $2.09, which is comparable to the price you would pay anywhere. I also drink a lot of ice water. Staying hydrated so I’m not tired or hungry!

imageWishing: Well, I’m still wishing for that spring weather. I guess we are just going to go straight from winter to summer here in Indiana!

Loving: My daughter is coming home from Savannah this week for a visit, and my son is coming home from his second year of college! Going from empty nesters to a full house again, at least for a week. I love it when the whole family is together!

Dreaming: Of sunnier, warmer days. And the beach. My sister and I are taking a trip in May, and hopefully it will be sunny and warm, and include multiple trips to the beach!

That’s it for this week. I hope it’s sunny and warm in your part of the world. Have a great weekend!

Running Day!

image This post is going to be short and sweet. Yesterday, it was both sunny and warm in Indiana. So I laced up my running shoes, picked up a friend, and off we went to explore the wild blue yonder. Three sweaty yet exhilarating miles later, we congratulated each other with high-fives and iced coffees at our local Starbucks. What a great way to celebrate Earth Day! I hope you were able to get outside as well and enjoy God’s creation!
