I am linking up with Jennifer for Currently today! She gives us present participles (I just taught these in Spanish! #languagenerdalert!) and we will fill in the blanks!
A fire in my Solo Stove and a bowl of chili! I need a weekend night at home to make this happen. Mason loves my chili so much so I hope he will be here. My college kids have a little fall break coming up, too. I really want the cute little Solo Stove Mesa – it’s a table top version. It is the cutest little thing. I might ask Tom to get me that for my birthday. I would also like to re-create my S’mores charcuterie that I made a couple of years ago. It had the traditional S’mores making stuff and Fudge Stripe cookies and Reese’s. Maybe it needs something with caramel? I am also anticipating making soups and more comfort food meals. I can’t wait to make lasagna soup!
I think one thing that stops me from making a fire is that I just want it for an hour or two. It seems like our fires last for hours and someone has to babysit it.
Sorry to keep saying this, but my tricolor mums! I am also admiring other peoples’ Halloween and Fall decor as I drive or walk by.
Too much on groceries! I spent $400 the first month we were empty nesters in the fall of 2020. I spent $800 on groceries last month. So, what does that tell me? I am eating healthier, so that does cost a bit more, but groceries have almost doubled. I am consuming what I have in my freezer, though. I am really trying to continue to cut down on food waste and shop smarter. It’s hard!
Another pair of boots or booties, I think. I want them to be easy to slip on/put on. I am thinking more of a Western vibe. If not a full cowboy boot, I think I would like some Western details. If you have a rec, let me know!
Some of my older fall clothes and shoes! I keep a bag in my closet and as a new season rolls around, if an item no longer fits me or my style, I put it in the bag to either be donated or sold. Most of my fall clothes were new last season and I still like them, thankfully! I am constantly deleting emails and texts. I don’t like a full inbox or text stream. I can’t stand the visual clutter. I also desperately need to go through some spaces in my house and purge. I clean out the fridge and freezer on a weekly basis, too, before I decide what to add to my Kroger pick up order.
What about you? Any of these you want to comment on? Thanks for the fun link up, Jennifer!
