The Currently List - August 2017 edition

Watching
Star Trek: The Next Generation from the start of the series on Netflix
Game of Thrones on HBONow
Midnight, Texas via my on demand service with Spectrum

Listening
Kings of Leon (after the concert earlier this month, I'm on one of their kicks)

"Strip That Down" by Liam Payne
"Body Like a Back Road" by Sam Hunt
Everclear's Ten Years Gone and Green Day's American Idiot for a bit of nostalgic rock

Reading
Thread Painting by Febe Verbeke
The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Potzsch
Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova

Making
Necklaces of various sorts for friends
Painted pillow covers (or at least I'm going to make those)
Spirit shirts for my bestie and me (hopefully soon)

Stitching
Tiny embroidery hoop stitched necklaces

"Pretty Little Amsterdam" designed by Satsuma Street

Struggling
To quit picking at my fingers and toes; I've been quite nervous lately, so this bad habit has been more noticeable than it usually is

Planning
My selfies class for the October ScrapGals retreat in Nashville
Crafty goals in my creative planner (this is literal planning - haha!)
A marathon youtube video session of viewing all my faves that I haven't kept up with in the last few months

Scrapbooking
Nothing right now - I really need to change that

Avoiding
Weeding my landscape beds in the hope my son-in-law or some magical fairy will do it
My new workout plan that the trainer at the gym designed; it makes all of my parts hurt
Going to the grocery this week; it's just not fun

Traveling
To Nashville regularly for podcasting and for the upcoming ScrapGals retreat
To Virginia to visit my dad in a few weeks (maybe???)

Anticipating
Cool, crisp fall weather
The start of my twice weekly adult night class that I teach

Cooking
Nothing much at the moment; I think I'll prob begin cooking more as it cools off
Do avocado toast and caprese salad and frozen pizza/Lean Cuisines count as cooking? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Wearing
All the white things (dresses and pants) this week as Labor Day quickly approaches; I will forever hear my mother's voice in my ear about not wearing white bottoms or shoes after Labor Day. Maybe that's a Southern thing?
My black patent leather Birkenstock sandals that I bought in Berlin all.the.time. because they're so comfy

Searching
For painting and stitching iron on transfers/patterns that are modern and fresh
For the perfect monogram stickers for my laptop and similar items
For that scent I kept noticing on others in Paris in 2015 but never found

My currently list in a nutshell -- care to share what's going on in your life at the moment?
